  1. Were there different classes of cabins? And were there showers? All the same, passengers carried on the ship for two days.

  2. There were 25 inside cabins when the ship was launched in 1936; 9 additional window cabins were added in 1937. The fare was the same for all cabins; company officials were thinking about charging more for the outside cabins, but did not have a chance to make that change before the ship crashed in May, 1937.

    There is very complete information available at:
