Adriatic Mediterranean Cruise, 1931
‘The Adriatic is a ship on which gentlefolk like to travel. Her public rooms impart a sense of well-being…of good taste. One is wont to mingle freely with one’s fellow passengers…to enjoy to the fullest extent the cosmopolitan group of voyagers who refer to the Adriatic as “my ship”.’ — Adriatic Plans and Rates 1931

‘Amusements on these ships are a little less stressed, perhaps, than on the fashionable express liners, but they are not lacking. On each ship the orchestra gives daily concerts of classic and popular music and also plays for dancing. Games of various kinds are played in the lounge and smoking room, and there is generous deck space for outdoor sports.’
