During the voyage, each passenger has to fill out a ''Customs-Declaration" form for his or her personal baggage.
In the case of families the oldest member may fill out this declaration for the whole family. Blank forms will be distributed on board the steamer.
Baggage, parcels, etc., intended for re-forwarding, for storage, or for delivery to a third party, are to be handed to the Baggage Master who, alone, is competent to receive such baggage.
The Company accepts no responsibility for any article handed over by passengers to other members of the ship's personnel.
Passengers are specially in their own interest recommended to look after their hand-baggage upon landing in the port of destination.
Passengers are requested to take care that, before leaving the steamer, no personal belongings are left in their cabins or elsewhere aboard.
Arrangements must be made with the Customs Inspector at the port of disembarkation respecting any baggage under bond which has to be forwarded to some further destination. Such baggage must be specially mentioned on the Customs Declaration Form and the value thereof stated.
Left behind baggage to be forwarded by a later sailing must reach the port of destination within three months of the passenger's arrival, and must be included on the Customs Declaration together with the baggage which the passenger has already taken with him.

Doctor. A duly qualified Doctor is on board who will, free of charge, attend to passengers falling sick during the voyage

Letters and Telegrams. The Chief Steward has charge of the distribution of incoming mail.
Letters for passengers will be brought on board at the port of arrival before the passengers land. In their own interest, therefore, passengers should personally ascertain whether there is any mail for them before they leave the ship.
Before leaving the ship passengers are recommended to leave their address at the pursers office, so that any mail arriving after their departure may be forwarded to them.
Letters and telegrams may be directed c/o any of the company's agents.
Telegrams, to be dispatched from the next port, are accepted at the purser's office only, but wireless messages at the ship's wireless station.

Service. Passengers are requested, in their own interest, to submit any complaints they may have to make to the Captain at the time of his daily round of inspection every morning. Wishes expressed by passengers will be complied with as far as circumstances allow.
Landing. Every passenger will be furnished during the voyage with a landing card bearing his name. This card must be presented in the dining room to the Immigration Officers who board the steamer at the Quarantine Station.
The card will be stamped after inspection and returned to the passenger who has to present it again to an Official of the Company when leaving the steamer.
No passenger will be permitted to land without this stamped card.

To Firms Interested in Exports and Imports.
If you consider it of importance to ensure rapid and reliable transportation for your goods destined to countries overseas, we recommend you to consider the claims of the unexcelled Lloyd Freight Service.
In addition to the New York service, on which the Nord deutscher Lloyd maintains a regular service every three to four days of rapid and first-class passenger, mail and freight steamers, there are the following freight steamer services to North America, viz:
- A weekly combined service with the Cairn-Thomson Line from Hamburg/Bremen to Montreal (calling at Quebec if sufficient inducement).
- A fortnightly service from Hamburg/Bremen to Philadelphia, Baltimore and Norfolk.
- A monthly service from Hamburg/Bremen to New Orleans.
*) A monthly service from Hamburg/Bremen to Galveston and Houston.
*) A service every three weeks from Hamburg/Bremen/ Antwerp via the Panama Canal to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver.
There are also regular departures from Bremen to Central and South America (East and West Coast), Africa, Australia, to the Far East (weekly), as well as to Mediterranean ports, the Levant, England and the Baltic ports.
If you have not already consigned "per Norddeutscher Lloyd", may we ask the favor of a trial which we are sure will convince you of the reliability of our Freight Service?
*) Passengers are also carried on these services.
Steamers engaged in the North Pacific Service are equipped with refrigerator space.
