Cabin Class Fleet
Days of Rest
WHEN the excitement of departure is over, the last good-bye said, and the ship has slipped from her berth and is steaming downstream then worries and ties will grow indistinct as the little waving figures on the crowded pier, and soon fade away altogether.
Seven, long, glorious days, wherein to rest and doze and dream—or if you care, to play. As many nights to enjoy the deep-health-giving sleep that the salt breezes bring, in the luxurious comfort of your own cabin. New friends, pleasant conversation, dancing on a broad, smooth deck in the moonlight—all these joys will be yours.
To cross the ocean once on a Canadian Pacific Cabin Class Steamship is to realize that you have found the ideal way to travel, and to understand why these vessels are so popular with experienced travellers. Your trip will be a revelation of what comfort can be, and you will want to go the same way the next time, and the next.
Cabin Class ships are not only preferred on account of the congenial company and good fellowship, but because the rates are so reasonable—only slightly more than the regular second class fares on ships of two classes of cabin accommodation.
These vessels are modern, specially built for the cabin class service, and furnished artistically with appreciation of the highest degree of comfort.
During the summer months the eastbound sailings are from Montreal and Quebec. On the smooth waters of the St. Lawrence, which is bordered by quaint French-Canadian villages and picturesque farms, passengers have two days in which to find their sea-legs, before the ships put out on the open sea. Sailings during the winter are from Saint John, N.B., by the shortest sea-route to Europe.
