"The traveler accustomed to luxury and superlative comfort, the connoisseur of art and the lover of beauty, find in the luxurious modernity and harmonious loveliness of these floating Italian palaces, decorated by famous artists, that air of distinction which characterizes all patrician homes. The voyage between Europe and New York by the Sunny Southern Route is undoubtedly one of the most delightful sea trips. From the Azores, outposts in Europe in the Atlantic, to the blue waters of the Mediterranean, along the coasts of Spain, Africa, Sicily, Italy, is a succession of pictures of enchanting beauty, a movie which holds one's interest continuously, a marvelous and never to be forgotten spectacle."
