Your Atlantic Holiday to Canada
Passengers board the liner. Families and friends wave goodbye, and the liner steams away. The boat arrives at Belfast and the launch collects more passengers. On board, passengers play shuffleboard and deck tennis. They play a mock horse race, working out the position of the horses with dice as women move models up a track. We see the odds on a blackboard. Passengers relax inside a cabin, and in a lounge with fireplace. There is a masquerade ball. We see the characters in various costumes pass the judges.
