Front Cover, Going Abroad via Cunard and Anchor Lines, 1923, Brochure No. A&P 20154-23. GGA Image ID # 171f7e7481
Excellent brochure from 1923 provides numerous photographs, the majority interior views of the many steamships in the fleets of the Cunard and Anchor Lines. Ships covered include Berengaria, Aquitania, Mauretania, Franconia, Scythia, Samaria, Laconia, Carmania, Caronia, Tyrrhenia, Tuscania, Cameronia, Assyria, Columbia, Saxonia, Albania, and "A" Class Ships. Additional features included Cold Buffets, Assorted Staterooms, and a large format Map of "Strange Lands and Foreign Ports Reached by Cunard and Anchor Passenger Services."
The RMS Berengaria
The spaciousness of the Berengaria, which is one of the world's largest ships, makes her a superlatively comfortable ship to travel on. She carries over 4,000 people, distributed over nine massive deck levels.
She has miles of deck space, beckon- ing you on out into the sunny, salt-tinged air. Her grand ballroom, with its floor like a polished mirror, and its sea-green decorative plan, puts you in mind some brilliant hotel salon.
Her Roman bath is on the same luxurious scale. The staterooms are in keeping with the ample proportions of the ship—not cabins, but spacious rooms with modern bedsteads instead of berths and delightful hangings. The Berengaria is veritably a queen among ships.

The Rose-Tinted Lounge, with Its Magnificent Gobelin Tapestries, Its Great Glass Dome, Its Exquisite Appointments, Is the Social Pivot of the Berengaria. The Raised Dais May Be Used as a Stage for Concerts and Theatricals, or the Whole Salon May Be Transformed into a Ballroom. Going Abroad, 1923. GGA Image ID # 1bc2412ead
The Cunard Steamship RMS Aquitania
The Aquitania is a fitting ship on which to make a trip to England because her gracious, palatial charm is reminiscent of the atmosphere of the English manor, and her handsome, quiet decorations carry out this aspect. Beauty without ostentation makes the Aquitania popular with people of artistic and social prominence. Every detail of her equipment bears out this quality. Her lounge and dining salon are the epitome of charm and comfort. With many fine editions of the classics and the newest modern novels, even her library exemplifies that finesse of detail that makes for perfection.

Charmingly Cozy Is the Grill, a Smaller and Less Formal Supplement of the Aquitania Dining Salon. From the Elizabethan Prints on the Walls to the Quaint English Needlework on the Window Draperies, the Grill Typifies the Harmony of Modern Decoration. Going Abroad, 1923. GGA Image ID #
The Cunard Ocean Liner RMS Mauretania
There is motion in every line of this beautiful swift ship. Even at anchor, the Mauretania expresses speed, so fleet and fine are her lines. She is known as a record ship wherever valiant ships are discussed and appreciated, and she gallantly upholds her name. A visit to her engine-room three decks below water level is a tremendous revelation of what power means in a ship. Nor is the Mauretania merely a fast ship. Her express service to England and the Continent, it is true, make her a prime favorite with men whose time is precious. In addition, however, she is a ship of distinct charm. For example, she is a veritable bower of flowers—a rather feminine quality and a delightful one!
Rome, the Eternal, Is Eternally Interesting to World Travelers, Who Keep Vivid and Busy the Roads That Lead to Rome. The View Shows St. Peter's from the Plaza. Going Abroad, 1923. GGA Image ID # 1bc2e50f48

GGA Image ID # 1bc3df5d34
The Cunard Steamer RMS Franconia
Embodying all the new developments in ship craft, as she so skillfully does, the Franconia is distinguished by several novel features. Other ships, for example, have squash courts, but the Franconia is the first of her size to have one built-in as part of her original equipment. Her swimming pool is larger than the one on the Aquitania, although the tonnage of the Franconia is not quite half as great. Then—an essential feature for a ship that makes long cruises, as any wise traveler will tell you—the Franconia has a laundry. A perfectly equipped ship in every way is she.
As this book is being printed, the "Franconia" is launched but not yet completed in all details sufficiently to be photographed. Hence the illustration from an architect's drawings.

The RMS Scythia of the Cunard Line
The Scythia is a sister ship to the Samaria and Laconia, so similar to the others that only a very keen-eyed decorator could tell them apart. Hence, although the photographer took these photographs on the ship indicated, they represent the three in general. Different exterior views of each of the ships are also presented so that you may get a better idea of these 20,000-ton wonder ships.

The RMS Samaria of the Cunard Line
On the Samaria, typical of the other two ships of the corresponding personality, gay smartness is the keynote. The veranda café, with its cool wicker and delicate ferns, looks like the inevitable, attractive Long Island "atmosphere" of any smart comedy. To take a particularly individual example, the lounge employs chairs and little tables of vermilion lacquer to offset the dignity of beautiful mahogany fittings.

The Cunarder RMS Laconia
The Laconia, boasting the distinction of being the first ship ever to make a gala trip worldwide, is also the largest ship through the Panama Canal. Her appointments, perfect taste, and her atmosphere of utter comfort make the Laconia an ideal cruise ship. A sister ship, the Servia, is currently being built. Something about all three of the new Cunarders makes them delightfully homelike.

The RMS Caronia of the Cunard Line
The Caronia, the second of the "pretty sisters," rivals the Carmania in comfort and attractiveness. Some people are devoted to one ship, some to another, dependent, no doubt, on individual preference. But the consummate Cunard service, the unfailing courtesy, and helpfulness of the personnel, the whole smooth-running machinery of social life on board, mark the Caronia as conspicuously as the Carmania. Both ships are large enough for spaciousness and yet cozy and friendly.
The Lounge Is the Meeting Room of the Ship, Where a Happy and Gay Assembly Gather for Much Good Talk, Music, Bridge, and Good Fellowship. The Lounge of the Caronia Is Made Particularly Cheerful by the Bright Light from the Glass Ceiling. Going Abroad, 1923. GGA Image ID # 1bc8926f5e

The Tyrrhenia, Being One of the Very Newest of the Cunarders, Reaps the Benefit of a Long and Careful Observation of What Is Best Conducive to Comfort and Enjoyment on a Transatlantic Steamer the Fruits of the Science of Ship-Building, the Newest Achievements in the Art of Ship Decoration, Are Embodied in the Tyrrhenia.

The RMS Tuscania of the Cunard-Anchor Line
The Tuscania is as Scotch as Harry Lauder. Her skipper, Captain Bone, is a Scot, and his years of experience on sailing vessels make him a seaman of the old school. His books are the joy of everyone who has longed to crew a clipper ship and sail into the world's ports. The crew is Scotch—Scotch specialties enliven a menu that is a succession of good things. And, as a foundation to this "braw Brecht" personality, the Tuscania has a certain livable quality, a charm of appointment, and the smooth-running service part of Anchor Line traditions.

The RMS Cameronia of the Cunard-Anchor Line
The Handsome Decorative Scheme of the Cameronia Makes Her Appointments a Thorough Joy to the Transatlantic Traveler. The Dining Salon, for Instance, Is Done in Italian Renaissance Style, with Its Ceiling Carried up to a Height of Sixteen Feet, and Its Walls Made to Simulate an Interior Courtyard, with Projecting Balconies Charmingly Worked In Wrought Iron. Purple, Gray, and Old Gold Make an Unusually Rich Color Scheme.

The RMS Assyria of the Cunard-Anchor Line
The Assyria, whose tonnage is 8,200 tons, might be termed a "family ship," so comfortable are her accommodations. Her public rooms, particularly the lounge and smoking room, are in excellent taste, and all of the staterooms have direct ventilation. Since she is a cabin ship, everyone onboard has access to all her deck space, a generous amount, enlivened on every voyage by deck sports and games.

The RMS Columbia of the Cunard-Anchor Line
The Columbia was quite recently converted to a cabin ship. She is a ship with a story-book personality—a quaint, individual, cozy vessel. And yet, despite her quaintness, she is modern, with an up-to-date library, a good orchestra, and all the small conveniences that make the voyage across an unalloyed pleasure.
The Cunard-Anchor Line RMS Columbia. Length: 501 Feet; Tonnage: 8,300. Going Abroad, 1923. GGA Image ID # 1bcd27e6b4

The RMS Albania of the Cunard-Anchor Line
The RMS Albania is a convenient ship—her passenger accommodation is situated on the shelter and between decks. Her social hall, lounge, and smoking room are all near each other and the spacious promenade decks. The social hall is a charming room, done in William and Mary style, with a rich and subdued crimson as the chief color note. This compact and yet roomy arrangement makes the Albania a homelike place.

The "A" Ships of the Cunard Line
The Andania, Antonia, and Ausonia comprise the fleet known as the "A" boats. They are cabin ships with a tonnage of 15,000 and accommodation for about 1,800 passengers. They are laid out with the thought of utmost comfort—the social rooms are on the topmost deck, with the higher decks devoted to sleeping quarters. In this way, the most are made of air and sunlight, two of the elixirs that create a refreshing sea voyage. Cunard service, running smoothly and with the charm of long experience, distinguishes the "A" boats. Sister ships, the Alaunia, Ascania, and Aurania are projected.

Tempting Fare on Cunard and Anchor Liners
The good things to eat on every Cunard and Anchor Line steamer, from the giant Berengaria to the "A" boats, the newest of the fleet, are a byword among epicures. If you were to go down to the piers while a Cunarder is at anchor, the vast stores of fresh edibles waiting to be taken aboard would make you think you were in some great market.
And when you sit down at a perfectly appointed table and scan the seemingly endless menu, you might imagine yourself in some superb metropolitan hotel, where variety and abundance are the watchwords. And when you are served, deftly and unobtrusively, with delicately seasoned viands of every description, you know what "Cunard cuisine" really means. It means rare and palate-satisfying perfection.

Cunard and Anchor Line Staterooms
These glimpses of typical Cunard and Anchor Line staterooms purposely strike an average of what you may expect on these ships. All the little things that are so important in making a trip comfortable—all the conveniences that make you remember your voyage with pleasure instead of annoyance, you will find here. It is not only in the imperial suite of the Berengaria, that luxurious apartment of five rooms and two baths, for example that care has been expended.
The Gainsborough and Reynolds suites on the Aquitania, it is true, are the last word in luxury and comfort. But the rest of the ship—and all of the other ships, from the Mauretania with its regal suite to the least pretentious of the vessels—cater to the average passenger with proportionate and efficient care. This consideration shows itself in the little niceties, draperies, pictures, and the freshness and attractiveness of every stateroom on every fleet ship.
The Distinguishing Little Touches That Take the "Cabined and Confined" Air from Aquitania Staterooms Make This "Inside-Outside" Room, with Its Real Bed, a Particularly Good and Charming One. Going Abroad, 1923. GGA Image ID # 1bd0d18d51
