SS Meteor Photos - Hamburg-America Line - 1908
View Incredible Large Format Photographs of the Hamburg American Line SS Meteor (1904), including Interior and Exterior views and scenes from piers of western Norway from the 1908 Book Northland Fahrten - Hamburg-Amerika Linie.
The Meteor is exclusively devoted to pleasure cruises as a cruising steamship. In this new enterprise, the chief objective of the company has been to place at the disposal of the traveling public a vessel which, without in any way diminishing the comfort invariably offered by the Hamburg-American Line to its passengers, will yet, in consequence of her type of build and somewhat simpler fittings, decrease the expenses of working and maintenance, and thus enable the company to reduce to a minimum the fares for cruises by the Meteor.
The SS Meteor offers short and inexpensive cruises in the Mediterranean and the Adriatic Seas, starting from Genoa and Venice. Cost $70 upward with excellent connections made by the Hamburg-American Line's Atlantic service.
