National Geographic : 1933 Aug
Two gay weeks on famous President Liners People who have gone many ways, and traveled well, say no other way to California quite compares with this one-via Havana, through the Panama Canal. Crossing the continent by ship in eight hours is an experience you will never forget...And that day in the Canal is only one of many that everyone who has ever made this trip hopes to live over again. Days on a President Liner's ample decks, playing games-and swimming in the outdoor pool. Others just plain lazy. And thrilling days ashore in fascinating foreign cities. Nights beneath the tropic moon. The President Liner you board in New York for California will he either a Round the World or Trans-Pacific President Liner, bringing the unmistakable flavor of real world travel to this intercoastal trip. You will find gay cosmopolitans aboard bound for far-away storied places.. . And you will find that President Liner features planned for their long voyages add many pleasures to this short one. Public rooms are charming and friendly. Staterooms are all outside, large and airy and high, midship-with deep-springed beds... Menus are made up from the best of the good things that all the President Liners' wide-spread ports of call provide. There is a sailing every week to Los Angeles and Sai Francisco. (Fortnightly from California to New York.) First Class fares are from $165 on Round the World Liners; from $200 First Class and $120 Tourist on Trans-Pacific Liners. And you may stopover as you please, continuing on the next or another President Liner at no additional fare. Roundtrips are generously discounted, and the fares for one-way-steamer, one-way-rail trips Round America are from $265 First Class and $220 Tourist . . . hometown to hometown. Your travel agent or any of our agents (New York, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other principal cities) will be happy to tell you all about the various President Liner services: Between New York and California, to the Orient via Iawaii and the Sunshine Route or via the Short Route from Seattle, and Round the World ... on any of these trips you go as you please, stopping over as you choose, continuing your jour ney on another of the President Liners that sail on regular schedule.
