Devoted to cruising, she was "the perfect playground for your winter vacation" sailing regularly from Port Everglades every winter from 1962, when she was refitted, renamed and painted green, until 1971. Carmania and sister-ship Franconia (which sailed from New York) featured enlarged, terraced lido decks and pool, numerous lounges, sports, cocktail parties, dances and audience-participation shows. Originally built as Saxonia for Liverpool to Montreal service; sold to Soviet shipping company as Leonid Sobinov.
