In October 1935, Cunard White Star printed a brochure advertising Majestic’s ‘New Year’s Eve Week End Cruise to Nassau.’ Although the original item has faded and become dirty over the years, it sheds light on one of Majestic’s final actions as a passenger liner.

According to the New York Times, when Majestic returned on January 1st 1936 she carried no fewer than 1,501 passengers who had enjoyed their time onboard the second largest liner in the world.

Majestic left New York for the final cruise of her career on the evening of Friday December 27th 1935. The advertised price of $60 for five days could only be obtained by passengers booking the cheapest of accommodation. (Author’s Collection.)
