Welcome to our RMS Aquitania website. The Aquitania was the longest serving  Cunard liner of the 20th century and survived service in both World Wars. Her exquisite and tastefully executed interiors earned Aquitania the title “The Ship Beautiful” – a fitting title for this transatlantic queen.

The mighty Aquitania was built by John Brown & Co. Ltd, Clydebank, Glasgow, Scotland, UK and was introduced into service in 1914. In the Interwar Years she operated the 3-ship weekly express service to New York in partnership with the Mauretania and the Berengaria (former Imperator), the Lusitania having been lost in the First World War, and soon became an Atlantic favourite.

By the late 1940s her age was taking its toll and she was not granted an operating certificate for 1950. In 1949 Cunard Line decided to withdraw her from service and she was sold and scrapped at Faslane in Scotland.

This website celebrates the history of this famous ship and honours its unique place in maritime history in the history of Cunard Line and ocean travel in the 20th century.
