The Empress of Canada was the last passenger liner built for Canadian Pacific Steamships Ltd. According to this description "her cabins were large compared to the modern cruise ships of today, and featured fine timber walls." As an immigrant I was in a shared interior cabin and spent much of the voyage in my upper bunk trying to avoid being seasick. I've rarely felt so lacking control knowing that whichever way the ship went land was days sailing away. Ever since, no matter how rough the flight, I've always appreciated that the agony couldn't last more than a few hours.
