On the MS "St. Louis" of the Hamburg-American Line which has gained an excellent reputation in the service from Hamburg to Canada, the United States and on Cruises, a remarkable improvement has been made which will make a voyage on this popular liner still more comfortable and enjoyable.
The spacious cabins and elegantly appointed public rooms of the Tourist Class have been converted into Third Class so that the "St. Louis" will in future carry two classes only.
The Third Class passenger has now, for the same fare, the privilege of traveling in accommodations corresponding to former Second Class on large transatlantic liners.
The "St. Louis" can carry 925 passengers in two classes. Being of 16 732 Gross Register Tons, she ranks among Germany's largest motor ships. Her total length is 575 feet and her average speed 16 miles per hour.
Passengers will find onboard the "St. Louis" everything that makes traveling on the Hamburg-American Line so delightful ... comfortable cabins, elegant public rooms, spacious decks, a shop, lift, library, cinema, sports deck as well as a service and cuisine for which the Company has always been famous.
