Summary expansion
The booklet provides a bit of historical background on South America; a description of what shipboard life is like during the eleven-day cruises; and descriptions of the port cities in which the steamship docks, including Rio de Janeiro and Santos in Brazil, with a trip to the inland city of São Paulo; Montevideo, and Buenos Aires. In addition, passengers can also book inland journeys around South America, such as the Trans-Andean Journey from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso, with stops in Santa Fe, Cordoba, Mendoza, and through the Andes past Aconcagua to Santiago and Valparaiso, Chile. A variety of other itineraries around South America are also included. Description of the Munson steamers focuses on amenities such as the salon, smoking room, writing room, personal service, dining, and luxurious staterooms. Text is illustrated with black and white photographs of tourist sites in South America, the S.S. American Legion, and interiors of various rooms on board the ship
