The good neighbor fleet



The S.S. Argentina, of Moore-McCormack Lines, in snug berth at Buenos Aires.  The harbor of Buenos Aires has many breakwaters, built to keep the silt from the La Plata River from filling anchorages.  The ships, on arrival in Buenos Aires, are maneuvered carefully past several breakwaters until they are wharfed.

Good Neighbor Fleet ships have been designed to make travel in tropical waters a source of lasting enjoyment.  The dining rooms, two decks high, are air-conditioned and offer inviting settings for the delicious meals which travelers on these ships have come to recognize as one of their most memorable characteristics.

Corcovado rises majestically above Botafogo Bay.  The peak of Corcovado, 2100 feet above the level of the harbor may be reached by trolley, rail or motor.

Public rooms are spacious and airy.  The Lounge is the scene of entertainment by professional talent engaged for the cruise, -- dancing to a nine-piece orchestra, moving pictures, horse races, bingo and bridge parties, concerts, and numerous other shipboard activities.

All staterooms on the Moore-McCormack Lines' ships are outside rooms, spacious and tastefully furnished in every detail.  This stateroom has a connecting bath.

"Rolling Down to Rio" on a Moore-McCormack Liner is the acme of travel pleasure and comfort.  Large sun and sport decks allow one to laze or exercise.  An outdoor tiled swimming pool is always handy for a dip.
