In a letter to the Girl Scouts, Captain O'Toole remarked that when at port they would fly the WAGGGS World Flag. Girl Scouts and Girl Guides would come down to see the ship. If there was time, they would be invited on the ship for  tour and a snack from the galley.

The S.S. Juliette Low ended her service as a cargo ship in the Merchant Marines on March 28, 1948. She was in service to a reserve fleet until she was needed again, to haul grain to famine-torn Europe. She then again entered into reserve fleet status. In 1972 she was salvaged and dismantled.
