Default I also sailed to America on SS Olympia.January 1954

Hi Manuel,
My husband and I are crossing the Atlantic on the Celebrity Eclipse and going to the Carbibbean before landing at Fort Lauderdale and staying at Daytona Beach for 2 weeks.
I live in Glasgow Scotland but in January 1954 when I was 10 my Mother Father and sister and myself emigrated to Daytona Beach where we stayed for 2 years and 3 months until we returned to Scotland as my father missed the hills of Scotland.
we got the train from Glasgow to Southampton where we boarded the S.S.Olympia and sailed to New York and then got the train to Daytona Beach which took 24 hours, unfortunately we were all seasick on the crossing which took 7 days, so we are hoping for better weather this November. Hope you are enjoying your cruise. Irene Scott.
