Passenger Information

Passengers are requested to comply with the orders of the captain and/or his officers who are responsible for both the safety of the ship and passengers, and comfort and order on board.

Change of Cabin. Passengers desiring to change their accommodation while on board must apply to the purser who, alone, is authorized to make the transfer. If higher graded accommodation is desired the difference in fare must be paid accordingly.

Meals will be served as follows:

  • Breakfast at 7.30 and 8.30 a. m.
  • Lunch at noon and 1 p. m.
  • Dinner at 6 and 7 p. m.

Seats in the Dining Saloon may be reserved beforehand upon application to the Chief Steward. Meals are not served in the cabins or on deck unless passengers are prevented through sickness from coming to the Dining Room.

A selection of good beverages is carried on board. Drinks brought on board by the passengers will not be served in the Dining Room.

The Dining Room will be closed at 11 p. m., the Smoking Room at midnight. Drinks will be served till 11.30 p.m.

In order to not disturb passengers, lights in the Social Hall and on the Promenade Deck will be extinguished at 11.30 p. m., those in the Smoking Room at 12 midnight.

Passengers are requested not to order any beverages in the Smoking Room after 11.30 p. m. and not to frequent the Promenade Deck between 11 p. m. and 7 a. m.

Baggage. Hand baggage and one cabin trunk may be taken into the cabin, but the cabin trunk must not exceed the maximum size, i. e. 3' 3" long by 1'1" wide and 1'1" high.

Larger articles of baggage will be stored in the hold, and will be accessible to passengers at certain fixed times daily. Baggage may not be placed in the alleyways.

Before landing, 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 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.

For their own interest, passengers are specially requested upon landing to look after their hand baggage and to take care that, before leaving the steamer, no personal belongings are left in their cabins or elsewhere on the steamer.

Arrangements must be made with the Customs Inspector at the port of landing regarding 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.

Baggage left behind and 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.

Animals. All animals, regardless of size and kind, will be accommodated aboard in suitable quarters. It is not permissible under any circumstances to take animals into any rooms used by passengers or to lead them around any part of the steamer set aside for the convenience of passengers.

Money, valuables etc. A safe is located in the Chief Steward's Office, accessible to passengers at all times. The safe's deposit boxes are under the control of the passengers who is provided with the key. The rent for the trip is $1for small, and $2 for large boxes. The purser will also accept valuables etc. duly sealed or enclosed in an envelope bearing the name of the owner, for sale keeping during the voyage, but without any guarantee on the part of the Company. The purser will give a receipt on demand.

Exchange of Money. The purser has only a limited supply of currency at his disposal, and thus money can only be exchanged to such an amount as is in accordance with the amount of currency available.

Library. A library on board, properly catalogued, is placed at the disposal of the cabin passengers.

Doctor. A licensed physician is on board and will, free of charge, attend to passengers falling sick during the voyage.

Treatment of Seasickness. Travelers inclined toward seasickness have an opportunity on all Norddeutscher Lloyd passenger steamers of availing themselves of an entirely new method of treatment (Dr. Dämmert's Process of inhalation). Experience has hitherto shown that good results are attained by this method. Passengers wishing to be treated by this new process are requested to apply to the Ship's doctor.

For each treatment, a voucher for RM. 2.— must be signed, which, at the end of the voyage must be cashed with the Chief Steward. Persons rendering the treatment are not allowed to accept cash-payments.

Bathrooms. Passengers intending to use the bathrooms, are requested to write their names, and the hour selected, on the list placed in the anteroom.

Barber. Prices are exhibited in the Barber's room.

Photographer. The photographer is entitled to charge for his services in accordance with the tariff exhibited.

Cigars, Cigarettes and Playing Cards may be had in the Smoking-Room at list prices.

Smoking is only permitted in the Smoking-Room and on deck. It is strictly prohibited below deck, in the dining room, ladies' parlor or in the state rooms.

Letters and Telegrams. The Chief Steward has charge of the distribution of incoming mail.

Mail for passengers is delivered on board at the port of arrival before the passengers land and passengers should ascertain personally whether there is any mail for them before they leave the ship.

Before leaving passengers should 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 addressed in care of 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.

Deck Chairs and blankets may be hired of the Deck Stewards

Pastimes and Games, as shuffleboard, deckquoits, dice, dominos, draughts and chess are at the disposal of the passengers.

Service. Complaints regarding the service may be submitted to the Captain during his daily rounds and any requests of passengers will be complied with if possible.

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.

Firearms. The carrying of firearms and weapons of any kind is prohibited by law in the U. S. A. Offenders are liable to heavy fines and punishment.

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 Norddeutscher 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.

Wireless Telegraphy.

The wireless stations (Telefunken System) on board all steamers of the Norddeutscher Lloyd are permanently in communication with coast stations either directly or by way of other ships.  The names of such stations and ships will be published every fore-noon.

A wireless message sent from land to a ship at sea must be addressed as follows:

  • Name of Addressee (to ensure correct delivery give full name).
  • Name of Steamer (as given in the International Register).
  • Name of Coast station (by which the message is to be transmitted).

Example: Heinrich Schmidt — Columbus — Norddeich.

All information regarding the dispatch of wireless messages, length of time required for transmission and telegraph fee may be obtained free of charge at the wireless station on board, or on land from the Deutsche Betriebsgesellschaft für drahtlose Telegraphie m. b. H., Berlin, SW. 1 I, Hallesches Ufer 12/13: telegraphic address "Debeg", telephone No.: Lützow 3630/34.

Messages are accepted at all telegraph offices in Germany and abroad for all ships mentioned in the International Register.

The wireless service on board of the steamers is operated by the Deutsche Betriebsgesellschaft für drahtlose Telegrafie m. b. H., (Debeg), Berlin SW. 11. All enquiries, complaints etc., may be addressed to this company. The steamship company takes no responsibility in this respect.

American Head Tax

The amount paid as American Head Tax may be refunded if all the under-noted conditions are fulfilled:

  • If the passenger does not stay in the United States longer than 60 days, and if the reply to question No. 20 of the Declaration Form is given as "not more than days".
  • If, when passing the prescribed examination before landing in New York, the passenger informs the competent official of his intention to leave the United States within 60 days; and that he receives Form No. 514-A (Transit Certificate) in which the arrival in America is officially noted. (Part A).
  • If, when leaving America, the date of departure of the passenger is endorsed on the same form by the Steamship Company whose steamer is used (or in the case of travelers by rail, the date of crossing the frontier is inserted by the officials of the railroad concerned. and the form signed by them.) (Part B).
  • If Form No. 514-A, when duly signed by the passenger in portions A and B, is presented to the American Authorities within 120 days from the original date of landing in the United States.

It is recommended that Form 514-A, when completely filled in, be handed to our Office, North German Lloyd, 32. Broadway, New York, or else sent to the Norddeutscher Lloyd, Passage Department, Bremen, immediately after landing in Europe.
