Built as a transatlantic liner for Swedish-America Line. After service as a troopship in World War II, went to Home Lines for further transatlantic crossings where she earned a reputation for exceptional food and service by an Italian crew. Cruised from New York to Nassau starting in 1961, then as a hotel ship in Freeport, she was finally scrapped in 1965.
