The placing into service of
the two fast and luxurious liners “REX” and “CONTE DI SAVOIA” has marked
the inauguration of quicker service between North America and Central,
Southern and Eastern Europe.
The two super-express steamers
take only six and a half days to effect the crossing from ITALY to NEW
YORK. The European ports of call are NAPLES, GENOA, NICE and GIBRALTAR,
where the fast Ocean crossing commences.
This new service with its exceptional
rapidity is attracting an always larger number of passengers who are desirous
of travelling on the pleasant Southern Route. In addition to the advantage
of embarkation at the principal Mediterranean centres served by speedy
communications by land, sea and air, such as Naples, Genoa and Nice, travellers
are also offered the priviledge of enjoying life on board these most modern
and fast ships on a route famous for the mildness of its clime, which makes
the crossing a wonderfully pleasant experience.
Due to their technical appliances,
the furnishing of the different classes, the perfect organisation of all
their services, the “REX” and “CONTE DI SAVOIA” are among the finest liners
of the world’s mercantile marine.
