many bargains for shoppers

is slightly quicker than in the outlying villages

fantastic plumage of colourful birds. . . the zestful tang of sea bathing .
the lush beauty of tropical foliage . . . the market places. . .

Spacious and gracious public rooms keynote the
luxurious accommodation, outstanding cuisine
and service which is a Canadian Pacific tradition,
across the seven seas. The domed ceilings of
the French Empire Lounge and the Empress
Room, a Cocktail Room as wide as the ship, and
the pillared beauty of the Main Foyer are
features of the Promenade Deck.

The tasteful continuity of design that sets Empress of
Scotland apart in a world of beautiful steamships is
reflected, too, in your private quarters. Whether you
cruise in a single or double bedroom, or treat yourself to the luxury of a suite with your own sitting room,
you will enjoy all the amenities of a modern home
plus that incomparable design for living that naval
architects weave into their floating palaces.
BEDROOM A 44
More cupboard space than the average house, hot
and cold running water in every room, a high
percentage of rooms with bath or shower and toilet,
every room with a port-hole, individually controlled
sea air by adjustable ball-louvres, reading lights,
mirrors galore, comfortable chairs, push-button
personal service, Canadian Pacific service — a
tradition of the seven seas — all these are yours to
command throughout four luxurious passenger decks!
Varied wall and ceiling treatments blend with
decorator chosen carpets and deep pile rugs.
Matching bathrooms reflect the continuity of design
that features the public rooms and private quarters
of your cruise ship, Empress of Scotland.
Pleasant Smoking Room by day, an up-to-date
movie theatre in which the recent releases are
shown, night club or ballroom by night. The Empress Room is a popular rendez-vous. Less formal
in its appointments than the Lounge, this bright
room is favoured by many carefree impromptu
groups.
THE EMPRESS ROOM
Bright and cheerful by day with its oval windows and a
brilliant setting for smartly gowned diners, is the Dining
Room on C Deck. Bronze fittings, blue Cipolino marble in
Burmese teak frames and cornice lights that give a soft glow,
combine in a quiet elegance that makes every dinner an event.
Two elevators serve the Dining Room, and the spacious Foyer
where congenial groups meet, and a ceiling height mirror
above the sideboard emphasizes the gracious proportions
of the room.
The bronze grill front of the semi-circular orchestra gallery
enhances the decorative scheme of the two-deck-high saloon.
Individual table lights; seatings flexible enough to suit any
desired groupings; deft waiters and wine stewards; and, of
course, menus in the Canadian Pacific tradition total up to
mealtimes that are highlights of happy days at sea.
C DECK FOYER
Pastel tinted or panelled in light or dark woods,
with built-in furniture, ample wardrobes, triple
mirrors and pier glasses for milady, Empress of
Scotland bedrooms are fully carpeted, spacious,
pleasantly individual. Beds and incidental furniture are designed for your comfort; directional
ball-louvres let you control your fresh sea-air supply; connecting baths, showers or toilets make your
private quarters self-contained units.
THE CARD ROOM
BEDROOM A 36
The small plan overleaf,
shows you alternate arrangements of A Deck bedrooms as
self-contained suites. The luxury of a private sitting room
can be enjoyed it you wish in
any of the groupings outlined
in the plan.
BEDROOM B 45
Your cruise ship is a city in itself supplying all the services
of the most modern municipality. Power, light, heat,
water, community recreation
facilities, and — much more —
ever-changing scenes; fresh,
tonic, sea breezes piped into
your private living quarters
and controlled by you to suit
your own desires.
This sea going city goes further — it provides your meals,
in a Dining Room a few steps
from your door, an open air
Cafe, or — if you wish — in
your room. There is a Shop,
too, personal service in the
Canadian Pacific tradition —
in short, more than is usually
meant by the term "every
convenience".
BEDROOM A 21
The art of dining is recaptured in
the quiet elegance of the Main
Dining Room of the Empress of
Scotland. Chefs to whom the Cordon Bleu is more than just a name,
headwaiters versed in the gustatory trends of a cosmopolitan
world, wine stewards familiar
with the vintage years and deft
waiters conspire together to make
your every meal something to be
remembered.
Menus feature exotic foods carefully selected at ports of call —
special dishes, to the dictates of
taste or dietary rules, are yours
to command — all this in that atmosphere of unhurried competence that is so essential to the
enjoyment of artistically prepared
good food, fine wines, and congenial conversation.

"Plan" — you couldn't choose a better word. Plan is the essence of a Canadian Pacific
West Indies Cruise.
The planning started when Empress of Scotland was built — she was planned for the
Tropics!
She was planned for luxury!
She was planned for spaciousness!
She was planned for your comfort!
Look at the plan ... a glass-enclosed promenade deck, sheltered and warmed in the cool
north — opened for the warm breezes of the south. In through the revolving doors — and
what a vista! As far as the eye can reach, the high-ceilinged gracious, spacious Long
Gallery; the carved teak grand staircase; the Lounge — in French Empire style; the Empress
Room for dancing or movies; the Library; the Writing Room — both gems of the decorator's
art, and — the Cocktail Room, a smart rendezvous the full width of the ship with windows
on three sides.

FOR YOUR COMFORT
The whole Promenade Deck—indoors and out—is yours. Connected
by the Long Gallery, a "Peacock Alley" to rival any ashore, are the
Main Foyer—crossroads of the social life of the Empress of Scotland,
Cocktail Room, Card Room, Writing Room and Library, Empress Room
and the stately Lounge.
Friendly, efficient, courteous attendants are at your call for afternoon
tea, post-prandial coffee, bar service. Deep-cushioned chairs and
chesterfields welcome you; wide windows fill the rooms with light,
your eyes with ever-changing pictures of the tropic seas.
Two decks high and the full width of the ship, the tasteful Dining
Room on C Deck is an architectural complement to the outstanding
cuisine for which the Canadian Pacific fleet is justly famous.
And if, at luncheon, you'd rather not change from your free and easy
play clothes—there's a tempting cold buffet and chummy tables on the
glassed-in Promenade Deck.
Suites with private sitting room and bath; Doubles with bath; Doubles
with shower and toilet; Doubles with toilet; Doubles; Singles with bath;
Singles with shower and toilet; Singles with toilet; Singles—the range
of choices ensures your comfort. All have wash basins, port-holes,
individually controlled ball-louvre ventilation, reading lamps, bedside
switches, lots of wardrobes, lots of space!
Sun Deck, Boat Deck, Lido Deck, Promenade Deck—these are the sunshine playgrounds of your Cruise-ship, Empress of Scotland. And the
Promenade Deck is glass-enclosed its entire length for comfort on cool
days. The Lido Deck Swimming Pool and sun-bathing area are handy
to the Cold Buffet that is a luncheon feature of the Promenade Deck.
