They even had home-made ice cream, which was a real treat with sugar under ration. Many brides told us how they felt seeing the Statue of Liberty for the first time and how everyone rushed up on deck to catch a glimpse of it. In fact, some brides simply had a cardboard cut-out of a cake sitting on the table. Tears are falling down my face reading the epilogue.
