CLOTHING FOR THE CRUISE . . . Light summer clothing is required for the greater
portion of the cruise.    Ladies should take plenty of wash dresses, and gentlemen white wash,
tropical worsted or Palm Beach suits.    Sports clothes and masquerade costumes will be useful.
Gentlemen will find a dinner jacket meets all ordinary requirements.
BAGGAGE , . . Although there is practically no limit to the amount of personal baggage
which may be carried on the steamship, it is inadvisable for members to burden themselves
with too many trunks and bags. Large trunks and other baggage not regularly needed or
which cannot be conveniently accommodated in the stateroom, will be placed in the baggage
room, which will be accessible throughout the cruise. Trunks for staterooms should not exceed
fourteen inches in height.
Every care is taken in connection with baggage, but on board the liability of the Canadian
Pacific is limited, and no responsibility is assumed ashore.
Members are recommended to protect themselves by insuring their baggage against loss,
damage or pilferage.    This may be done at reasonable rates.
Baggage may be checked from many points through to the ship at New York upon payment of the New York transfer charge.    Consult your local Baggage Agent.
LAUNDRY ... The EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA has a modern laundry and members' work
is given preferred attention at reasonable charges.
TRAVELLERS' CHEQUES . . . Members will find Canadian Pacific Express Travellers'
Cheques convenient on cruises. They are issued in denominations of $10, $20, $50, $100
and $200, and may be obtained from any Canadian Pacific office at the regular rates.
MAIL AND CABLES . . . Cruise members will be furnished, when tickets are issued, with
full instructions regarding addressing of mail and cables to reach them en route.
MESSAGES TO RELATIVES AND FRIENDS AT HOME ... The offices of the Canadian Pacific will receive advice of the arrival of the EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA at each port,
and will notify relatives and friends of members by mail if list of names and addresses is left
with them.
THE SHOP ... The EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA has an attractive, modern shop at which
may be purchased a variety of articles, such as books, candy, toilet requisites, photographic
films, souvenirs, postcards and fancy goods.
PHOTOGRAPHY ... As a cruise offers exceptional opportunities for photography, a staff
of experts is carried to develop and print films for members. Cruise members should not
take a large supply of photographic films with them, as hermetically sealed films are required
in the Tropics and may be purchased at The Shop on board at regular prices. Cine Kodak
films, in sizes 8mm. and 16 mm., are also available but must be processed on shore.
FACILITIES ... The EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA has every facility of the modern hotel-
stenographer, barber, ladies' hairdresser, manicurist, chiropodist, masseur, masseuse, surgeon,
trained nurses, laundry, valet service, photographer, novelty shop, daily newspaper, etc.
There are two passenger elevators.
WIRELESS ... The EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA is equipped with long range wireless for
the handling of news dispatches and members' messages.
RELIGIOUS SERVICES . . . Divine Service will be held on Sundays when the ship is at
sea.    Holy Mass will be celebrated by a Roman Catholic Chaplain.
ENTERTAINMENT . . . Hours aboard ship will pass all too quickly with so many interesting
things to do—deck tennis, quoits, shuffle-board, sports tournaments, bridge, concerts, masquerade balls, dancing, gymnasium, swimming pool and sound pictures.
The Library will contain a special collection of books on travel, adventure and foreign
countries.
There will be two orchestras, one for classical music and one for dancing.
MANAGEMENT ... The EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA is owned and operated by the Canadian Pacific; the Shore Excursions are arranged and supervised by the Canadian Pacific—
one management throughout—one standard of service—the best.
Canadian Pacific representatives, experienced in cruising, will accompany the cruises
to attend to the comfort of members aboard and ashore.
GENERAL CONDITIONS . . . The Canadian Pacific acts only in the capacity of agent for
the passenger in all matters relating to travel away from the EMPRESS OF AUSTRALIA, whether
by steamship, railway, automobile, or any other means, and as such holds itself free of responsibility for any delay, loss, accident or sickness occasioned by fault or negligence of any person
or company, or from whatever cause.
The right is reserved to withdraw any cruise, subject to refund of the net fare received
by the Company. Should it be deemed necessary or desirable by the management on any

BERMUDA
"Like scattered blossoms the Bermudas lie,
at ease" . . . washed by the waters of the Gulf
Stream. A cluster of 360 isles, the Bermudas are
by tradition the scene of Shakespeare's "Tempest". The exquisite coloring of the surrounding waters, the white coral houses etched
sharply against dark green cedars and palms,
the beauty of sea-gardens, make an enchanting picture. Then, too, there are magical
caves to be explored . . . and coral roads,
skirted with flaming flowers, to drive along
behind some dusky Jehu. Hamilton, beautifully
situated overlooking the bay, is the capital of
this pleasure island.
MARTINIQUE
Martinique, discovered by the Spanish in 1493,
and colonized by the French in 1635, is still a
French possession. The birthplace of Napoleon's Josephine, her statue adorns the Savanna
at Fort de France, the capital of this picturesque
colony. Here, too, is the tragic Caribbean
Pompeii, St. Pierre, devastated by the volcano
Mont Pelee in 1902. St. Pierre was built on
the sides of the mountain, with charming
residences, public squares and a fine cathedral
. . . today, its ruins, blackened and sombre,
contrast strangely with the colorful beauty of
their tropical setting.
TRINIDAD
Trinidad is the most southerly of the West
Indies. Situated off the coast of Venezuela, it is
an equatorial paradise. Often referred to as
the Riviera of the Caribbean, Trinidad's climate
is usually at its best at the time of the Winter
cruises. Port of Spain, the capital, lies on a
semi-circular plain backed by beautiful hills.
It is a city of astonishing contrasts: bell-shaped
domes of snow-white Hindu temples gleam
amid the wattled huts of natives. In the famous Botanical Gardens are hedges of red
hibiscus, poinsettias, rare orchids and exquisite
tropical climbers.
VENEZUELA
Venezuela, or "Little Venice" as the navigators called this island-dotted coast, was the
first land in South America sighted by Columbus. Its vivid background is pierced with
tales of piracy and the slave trade ... its color
and life today are typically Spanish, even to its
arena for bull fighting. From LaGuaira leads
the dramatic mountain road to Caracas, 23
miles long, though the distance by air-line is
but 6 miles. Founded in 1567, the lovely city
of Caracas lies in a valley of the Andes in a
rock-setting of astounding precipices.
CURAQAO
Curacao, the largest of the three coral islands
constituting the Dutch possessions off the
coast of South America, is known today not so
much for the liqueur to which it gave its name
as for its shopping opportunities. Perfumes,
embroideries and lace, as well as liqueurs, may
be purchased at reasonable prices. Willemstad, the capital, is "a little bit of Holland dropped into the Caribbean", for its buildings and
environment are almost an exact replica of
those of the Netherlands. The population of
the island is about 35,000, and the language is
called Papiamento, a mixture of Dutch, Spanish
and Portuguese.
PANAMA
The port of Cristobal comprises that part of the
City of Colon, Panama, that lies within the
boundaries of the Canal Zone. Of the Panama
Canal, little need here be said, such is its fame
as a marvel of engineering ingenuity, perseverance and organization. Across the Isthmus
in other days came the Spanish gold trains of
heavily-laden mules . . . and the piratical hand
of Henry Morgan is evident in the ruins on the
original site of Panama. An excursion will be
made along the canal to Panama, on the
Pacific Ocean side, thence to Ancon, Balboa
and Old Panama.
JAMAICA
Jamaica, "Queen of the Antilles", is a land of
springs and streams, of green-clad hills, beautiful cascades . . . and fine motor roads. Kingston,
the brilliant capital, nestles near the Blue
Mountains, which rear their lofty crags over
7,000 feet. Colorful, too, is the market place of
Kingston, with its semi-tropical fruits and motley
costumes. Port Royal, at the entrance to Kingston harbor, was once a rich and riotous pirate
stronghold. Now, the modern hotels, smart
bathing casino, and colorful native life will
captivate you. Other attractions of Kingston
include the Botanical Gardens, the Gorge of
the Rio Cobre, and Dunn's River Falls.
HAVANA
Capital of Cuba, famous tourist playground of
the West Indies, Havana flaunts a dual nature,
each equally attractive. Typically Spanish is the
old Havana with its arched doorways and tiled
patios ... its historic Cathedral where the bones
of Christopher Columbus lay enshrined for a
hundred years ... its Plaza des Armas, and
ancient fortress of la Fuerza built in 1538.
Typically modern is the new Havana ... a city
of great boulevards and gardens, beautiful
parks, stately monuments and imposing public
buildings . . . lively with Casino, smart clubs,
gay cafes and a brilliant social life . . . plus jai
alai, said to be the fastest game in the world.
NASSAU
Set upon a coral strand, its white walls gleaming,
Nassau is caressed by perpetual sunshine and
romance. The glories of this sun-city of the
Bahamas include . . . Paradise Beach and other
stretches of pink and coral sand . . . waters
teeming with Kingfish . . . bridle paths amid
Australian pines . . . colorful native life centering around the fish market and sponge exchange ... under-sea gardens, and palm-sheltered nooks bordering sapphire seas. Nearby are
forts famous alike in piratical legend and in the
romantic history of Nassau. Today, near these
scenes of former battles, cluster poinciana and
hibiscus beneath fronds of waving palms. Information and Reservations from your Local Agent
