For most of each year this comfortable, aging liner sailed weekly from New York to Bermuda. In 1961 a major conversion into a cruise ship was completed, with 2 of her 3 funnels removed and improvements to accommodations and amenities. Queen of Bermuda continued to make Port Everglades her winter base until 1966, when she no longer met fire safety standards and had been outclassed by newer ships as well.
