Scandinavian American Line / Skandinavien Amerika Linien

Favored today by those who cross the Atlantic for pleasure and for business, the Scandinavian-American Line -- the descriptive name under which the company operates its passenger service between the United States and the Scandinavian countries, typifies everything that makes ocean travel a delight.

No more popular ships sail the broad Atlantic than the splendid modern twin-screw steamers of the Scandinavian-American Line which maintain a regular direct service between New York and Scandinavian ports. The fleet comprises:

  • The Frederick VIII, 12.000 tons register. 18,000 tons displacement. 542 feet long. 62 feet wide. 42 feet from keel to the upper deck, built by the renowned Vulcan Shipbuilding Company at Stettin.
  • The Oscar II. the Hellig Olav, and the United States, each 10.000 tons register, 16.000 tons displacement. 515 feet long. 58 feet wide, 42 feet from keel to upper deck, built at the famous shipyards of Alexander Stephen & Sons, on the Clyde.

Designed and built expressly for the Scandinavian-American Line, with every known contrivance for safety, speed, and comfort, these twin-screw steamers, constructed of steel throughout, are equipped with double cellular bottoms, water-tight compartments, and bilge keels to Insure maximum steadiness at sea.

By any of these exceedingly popular steamers, passengers can reach the Scandinavian countries and neighboring Baltic ports with unrivaled ease and convenience.

The voyage occupies about 9 1/2 days, except on the steamer Frederick VIII which takes only 8 1/2 days, and it offers an attractive, quick, and comfortable way to travel, whether the ultimate destination he in Scandinavia or one of the adjacent continental countries.
