2 Jul 1942, Ella Buuck's wartime diary
We are really having smooth sailing, grand meals and a nice time.
My cabin isn’t too hot and now that we’ve discovered the elevator, I'm not too tired from carrying Bobby up and down steps. It's quite something to be able to take an elevator up and down the 5 decks from A to E. The ship is the most elaborate one we’ve seen.
The Japanese style bathroom here in 3rd is fun, a small pool fashion with another basin in the opposite corner with fresh water. The children love it.
