Operating a cruise-like line voyage from New York to the Caribbean and Venezuela, she and her sister ship Santa Rosa were the most frequent visitors at Port Everglades, calling every Tuesday morning while homeward bound. They were of a very high standard, with large outside staterooms and abundant public room space, attentive service and civilized entertainment with a Latin flair. They suffered from strikes by the American maritime industry, which contributed to the premature end of this marvelous service in 1971.
