National Geographic : 1935 Jun
* Largest of modern ships... luxurious . . beautiful ... the super liner "Normandie" will set new standards of comfort and safety in ocean travel for many years to come. ON JUNE 3 there will arrive in New York not merely another big liner, but a different kind of liner ... a super-liner. Neither size nor speed was the first considera tion of the engineers who plotted her dynamic lines. Those qualities came later, as the result of a fresh approach to the basic problem of assuring our passengers maximum safety and convenience. For the decoration of this super-liner the fore most artists of France were called into consulta tion. The Normandie decor ... executed with the finish of French craftsmanship ... is beyond any thing you have ever seen in brilliance. Imagine a ship 1029 feet long . . . 79,280 tons ... a dining-salon 400 feet in length, walled with molded glass, and entirely air-conditioned . . . a sun deck, clear of all obstructions, as long as two city blocks ... an eighty-foot swimming pool ... virtually every cabin in First Class with bath or shower, many with private decks ... a completely equipped theater . . . radio-telephones constantly in touch with both shores ... a staff of over 1300 to assure your comfort. You must see this ship! . . . The arrival of the Normandie in New York harbor with a distin guished passenger list will be an event in maritime history. Your Travel Agent can tell you more about her. . . . French Line, 610 Fifth Avenue (Rockefeller Center), New York City. S.S."noRm nDIE" FIRST ARRIVAL IN NEW YORK, JUNE 3.
