8-Panel Flyer offers a quick look at the SS Deutschland, a 21,046-ton ship, launched on 28 April 1923 with her maiden voyage on 27 March 1924. Superb interior photographs create a visual feast of this elegant ship of the Hamburg-American Line (HAPAG).

Steamship “Deutschland”

The steamer “Deutschland” is like her sister ship “Albert Ballin,” a twin-screw turbine steamer of 21,000 tons gross register. Her length overall is 627 feet, her width 73 feet, and from the boat deck to keel 80 feet deep.

Two sets of turbine engines give her a speed of 15^ knots. The new system of anti-rolling tanks with which the “Deutschland” and “Albert Ballin” are the first to be equipped, ensures the highest degree of steadiness in all weather conditions.

In the spacious and exquisite staterooms of the first-class, about two hundred passengers are accommodated. The second-class is arranged for four hundred passengers, and nine hundred and forty passengers are carried in third-class in comfortable rooms.

Among the unique features of the “Deutschland” are a gymnasium, grill room, passenger elevator, dark room for amateur photographers, electric light baths, ocean picture equipment.

The cuisine and service are of the high standard which for seventy-five years has made the Hamburg-American Line famous in ocean travel.
