Cunard Daily Bulletin, RMS Lusitania Edition, provided readers with plenty of advertisements, short stories, Saloon Passenger List for this voyage, Marconigrams, View of the Enquiry Bureau onboard the RMS Carmania and Caronia, and a Photograph of the RMS Lusitania.

On this voyage, the Lusitania made another record-breaking trip, during which the long route of 2.890 nautical miles was covered in four days 20 hours and 8 minutes, the average speed for the entire trip having been 24.88 knots. The best day's run during this trip was 641 nautical miles, the actual steaming period having been 25 hours 16 minutes (this variation from the 24 hours in a “land” day having been caused by the difference in longitude between the points of departure and conclusion of the day’s run). The speed for this day figured out at 25.37 knots. (International Marine Engineering, August 1908, p. 362)
