Did you know that the Hamburg-American Steamship Line was always well known for their excellent fare provided? The best culinary artists were engaged as cooks, and the menus on its steamers was equal, and perhaps better that what was been served in the best hotels in Europe. Wines, liquors, and cigars were carefully selected by the steamship company, and were of the finest quality available.
