This question already has an answer here:
The time period I'm working with is the 1890s, and try as I might I'm really struggling to find the details I need, specifically how long it would take to travel from London to Leipzig at that time. Also, I'd love to know what kind of accommodation would a middle-class person have expected on the ship itself? Individual cabins or would they have been crammed in? I assume the ships themselves would have been steam-powered by that time. Anyway, any information on either of these things - or just travelling to and from Germany during that time in general - would be immensely appreciated.
