THE Cruise Management hopes that all who are booked or who
may book for the World Cruise of the steamship Belgenland will
realize that we are at their service from the day they first show interest in the cruise, and not merely for the duration of the voyage.
With that in view, we have published this folder, which will deal
with some specific questions about which nearly everyone needs more
information than it is practical to include on the deck plan.
Thus we shall try to answer most of your questions in advance, but
there will be some that we miss. Please write us freely about them.
One of our staff of World Cruise experts will gladly give your letter
personal attention and answer in the light of his experience.
And we shall write you very frankly, both in the letters and in this
folder. If, now and then, there is a thorn among the roses, we shall
not hesitate to say so. Only they who sell artificial roses can truthfully say, "There are no thorns." Our roses are real, and they garland
the earth. The more you know about them, the more enthusiastic
you'll be.
Many of you are asking, "What Optional Excursions should we
take?" Some of you put it, "How many must we take?" apparently
with the idea that the cruise itself without optionals would not
amount to much.
That is not the case. The optionals are wonderfully attractive, but
no one should attempt to take all of them, and if for any reason you
should feel that you ought to take none of them, you would still find
that the days were more than full of things worth while.
In the whole itinerary, there is but one port of call where there is
more than enough time to enjoy the regular programs, with here and
there a half day free for shopping or other individual diversion. That
port is Bombay, where more time is allowed to permit everyone to go
—and everyone who can possibly do so should go—to Agra and the
matchless Taj Mahal.
We suggest that you study carefully the following pages regarding
optional excursions, and make your selections as soon as possible. On
some we can accommodate only 20, on others 40 or 50, and so on up
to about 125 in each of two groups going to Agra from Bombay. You
will protect yourselves and make it easier for us to serve you if you
give this important matter immediate attention. Perhaps a few suggestions will help.
ACCOMMODATIONS ON OPTIONALS
Already we have told you about the relative interest of the various
optionals, but we said nothing about the physical problem involved.
Are the accommodations on trains and in hotels good, bad or indifferent? Do you walk or ride, and what are the conveyances? Do the
trips require exceptional power of endurance?
These and other similar questions are answered in part in this
folder.
No one who is in good health need hesitate to book for any optional
that appeals to him. The standard of comfort varies, but is in general, high. All travel is a test of physical—and sometimes still more
of temperamental—powers of endurance. Passengers who join us en
route invariably comment on the superior comforts provided for our
optional trips as compared with what they have experienced when
traveling alone.
JAPAN-CHINA
About the only comment that is needed on the optionals in Japan
and China is the reminder that the Peking Overland involves about
2,000 miles of train journey—with travel conditions surprisingly
similar to those that would be encountered in America on a similar
trip.
DARJEELING
The Darjeeling trip means two nights on the train, and one night
in Darjeeling. Of course, you will wish to go to Tiger Hill for the sunrise, and that means getting up at 3:00 A. M. The trip up Tiger Hill is
made by ricksha and takes time. Unfortunately the sunrise will not
await our convenience. But the incomparable view is worth the
effort. And the effort is one that anyone in normal health can make
if he will. Tiger Hill is 8,000 feet above the sea and 1,700 feet above
Darjeeling.
BENARES
The Benares trips are easy. The trains are comfortable and the
nights will probably be cool. The same is true of the longer overland
trips. On the latter we spend six or seven nights along the way in
hotels.   Automobiles are generally available for sightseeing.
TRAINS IN INDIA
Various types of trains are used in India. Generally they are very
comfortable. The trips are not to be missed merely for fear of undue
physical strain. In India optional prices, according to custom, are
based on four passengers to a compartment. The railroads require
that a rail ticket be purchased for every berth. Passengers wishing
exclusive use of a compartment for two or for three persons will,
therefore, be obliged to pay the actual difference in railway cost,
which figures as follows: pER pERSON     Per Person
for Two for Three
Benares $41.28 $13.76
Calcutta Overland       81.08 27.03
Bombay-Agra-Delhi       76.14 25.38
EGYPT
At Luxor and anywhere else up the Nile, you must expect primitive
methods of transportation whenever you leave the river's edge and
start toward the desert. Things have not progressed much in that
respect since Tut-Ankh-Amen's day. The patient donkey is still the
rule. Here and there a sand cart varies the program, and there are
rumors of auto roads soon to be built to the more important spots.
The thing to do is to figure a few stiff muscles as part of the price to
be paid for a great experience, and go along. Almost anybody can who
will. Sand carts and automobiles, where available, will be provided
for those physically unable to go otherwise, at slight extra cost.
EUROPEAN OVERLANDS
As for the overlands from Naples, Monaco and Gibraltar, travel
conditions in Europe are better than before the war. No further
comment is necessary.
Please do not forget that 25% of the price of an optional tour
should be paid at the time the reservation is requested, otherwise the
reservation cannot be made. Final payment is due with final settlement for the cruise.
CANCELLATION OF OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS
All optional shore excursions are arranged for the pleasure of the
cruise passengers in whose behalf the American Express Company
makes contracts for transportation, entertainment and sightseeing
months in advance of arrival.
These contracts include arrangements for cancellation up to a certain date. Should individuals be obliged for any reason to cancel
their bookings for optionals previous to those dates (which are indicated below), a full refund will be made. After those dates, refunds
can be made only if the places are resold.
Cancellation Dates
For optionals in Japan and China January 6th
For optionals in Java and India January 18th
For optionals in Egypt and Palestine .... February 10th
For European Overlands March 7th
OPTIONAL TOURS
The right is reserved to change itineraries of optional tours as conditions necessitate; also, to cancel any optional tour should the
number of bookings not be sufficient to warrant its operation.
LOS ANGELES TO SAN FRANCISCO BY MOTOR
A three-day delightful automobile-Pullman-bus tour for those who
desire to make the trip between Los Angeles and San Francisco by
land.
JAPAN
The Kobe overland tour is made up for those who desire to spend
the greater part of their time, while in Japan, ashore visiting the
principal inland points.
JAPAN OVERLAND TO PEKING
This tour is one of the most popular of the optionals. You are,
of course, asking what effect the present disturbances in China may
have on this optional. So are we. We are watching the situation very
carefully through our offices in Peking and Shanghai and through
other sources of information. We shall take no chances. You may
book without hesitation for this optional. It will be cancelled and
your money refunded later if conditions make that the wise course
to follow.  The optional tour is limited to forty.
CANTON
Last year 200 of our passengers spent a day in Canton, although
political conditions there were so uncertain that it was impossible,
before arrival in Hongkong,.to say whether the trip could be made
or not.  Hence reservations are accepted only tentatively.
JAVA
All of these excursions are very much worth while, and take the
traveler through scenery unsurpassed anywhere for loveliness.
The first (to Djokjakarta) is the longer and so somewhat more
fatiguing, but the effort is more than rewarded by the visit to
Boroboedoer.
INDIA
In India the first question for you to ask yourself is, "Shall I
choose the maximum amount of time in India, going overland to
Bombay, or shall I make shore trips out of Calcutta and Bombay,
and get Ceylon also?" The answer is that those who have gone overland on our previous cruises were perfectly certain that they had
made the right choice, while those who went to Ceylon wouldn't have
missed it for anything. Ceylon is charming, but if you want to see
India, take the overland. If you elect Ceylon, you should visit either
Benares or Darjeeling from Calcutta. And by all means go to Agra
and Delhi, if you can get a reservation.
EGYPT AND PALESTINE
The Khartoum optional is intended for those who have seen lower
Egypt and is one of the most interesting optionals offered. Luxor
and the Tombs of the Kings need no advertising now-a-days. Here
again, as in the case of the Taj Mahal, our advice is unhesitatingly
"go." Cairo-Luxor I is limited to ninety and Cairo-Luxor II to
ninety also. The Palestine optional ought to be restricted to people
who have visited Egypt. Except for Palestine's one supreme interest,
Egypt is incomparably the more worth while. But that one interest
is supreme and we can scarcely blame people if, year after year, they
disregard our advice to save Palestine for the next time.
SUMMARY
We urge everyone to go to Delhi and Agra, and to go to Luxor,
Unfortunately we cannot take everyone, because accommodations
are limited. So if you plan to take our advice, take it soon.
There are three other trips that are quite as important, but they
are longer and more expensive and for those reasons we do not feel
justified in urging them as we do the two above. These three are the
Peking and India Overlands and the European Extensions.
The remaining optionals speak for themselves—or if they do not
seem to you to do so, remember that we will be glad to speak for
them, if you will ask us questions. Our purpose is to aid you to make
intelligent selections with as little delay as possible.
Please give the matter careful attention at once.

one associates with the Celestial Kingdom, always a hot-bed of
revolutions, now a republican stronghold, keenly alive to the outside
world. The walls are being pulled down and broad avenues carried
through the city, but old Canton is very much in evidence. Its maze
of_narrow streets hung full of gay-colored signs, its endless display of
filigree silver, jade, lapis and amber, carved wood, bamboo and ivory,
mother-of-pearl and embroideries, silk and porcelains, all combine to
fill the day with unusual interest. Return by rail to Hongkong.
