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.
