The Wireless Telegraph Service. The Wireless Station on board is almost daily in communication with all parts of the world, either directly or through shore stations.

All desired information regarding possibility of transmission, duration of transit and tariffs can be obtained free of charge on application to the Wireless Station on board, which is situated on the Bridge Deck.

The wireless service on board all the steamers of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie is in charge of the Deutsche Betriebsgesellschaft fur drahtlose Telegrafic m. b. II. (Debeg).

Inquiries, claims, etc. should be addressed to this Company only and not to the Hamburg-Amerika Linie, which undertakes no responsibility whatsoever for the wireless telegraph service.

Seats at table are allotted by the Chief Steward. Children paying half fare and servants must take their meals at special tables.

Caution to Users of Baths and Gymnasium. Passengers using the baths and gymnasium on board do so at their own risk and their own responsibility. The Hamburg-Amerika Linie do not hold themselves liable for any damage, injury or accident that may be caused by passengers' use of these facilities.

Physician and Pharmacy. On board are an experienced physician, a trained attendant and a fully qualified nurse. No charge is made for medical attendance or medicines in connection with, any illness contracted during the cruise.

The physician, however, is entitled to charge the usual fees for the treatment of chronic illnesses or complaints contracted prior to the commencement of the cruise.

The Company does not hold itself liable for the quality of the medicines supplied nor for the effectiveness of or the consequences arising from the medical or surgical treatment received by passengers.

Attendance. The stewards have strict instructions to attend to the wants of passengers in a prompt and courteous manner. Passengers are requested to bring any inattention to the notice of the Chief Steward, and, if the complaint is not promptly investigated, to apply to the Purser or to the Captain.

Cruise Office. The Office of the Cruise Management where all business relating to shore excursions is transacted is located on B Deck.

The office is open from 10:00 am to 12 noon and from 3 to 5 p. m. while the steamer is at sea.

The Office is in charge of all the vacant cabins on board. Passengers wishing to exchange their staterooms are requested to apply to this office.

Travelers' Cheques. Travelers" cheques of well known companies and banks will be taken in payment by the Purser. Personal and bank cheques cannot be cashed.

Exchange of Money. Small amounts of foreign money for immediate use on landing may be obtained from the Purser, but in some instances this may be at a higher rate of exchange than current ashore as it is obtained in advance at other ports.

Passengers are urged to dispose of their local foreign currency before departure from the country where it is current. Small amounts not disposed of will be bought by the Purser at the current rate which may by less than the cost to the passsenger, as it must he disposed of in another country.

Baggage. Large pieces of baggage that cannot be taken into the cabins or are not wanted there will be stored in the hold. Access to the hold may be had upon application to the Room Steward.

During the voyage, passengers are requested to refer all baggage matters to the Baggage Officer in baggage matters. No other ship's employees are authorized to accept orders concerning baggage. Should, nevertheless, any arrangements be made between passengers and stewards or other members of the crew, such are looked upon as purely private arrangements and are not binding on the Company.

Passengers are requested in their own interest to keep their hand baggage with them, both on boarding and leaving the steamer, the Company being in no way responsible for hand baggage.

All other baggage delivered to the Company for which a receipt has been issued is carried in accordance with the stipulations on the passage contract ticket.

The Company will not, under any circumstances, assume responsibility for loss or damage to baggage while in its custody beyond marks 200.— for the baggage of each passenger paying full fare.

Passengers wishing to cover themselves for an amount higher than the aforementioned sum, are strongly recommended to take out an insurance policy which may be procured on board through the Purser.

Gratuities. The payment of gratuities to the servants is left to the discretion of the passengers. Employees, while allowed to accept fees, must never ask for them. We would suggest that passengers intending to give any such gratuities should accord preference to the room steward, the table steward and the deck steward, and that payments to other employees should only be made as rewards for services specially rendered.

If employees importune passengers for gratuities, they should be reported at once to the Captain, the Purser or the Chief Steward.

Soliciting for collections of any nature without the approval of the Captain cannot be allowed.
