Welcome to our RMS Carinthia
a long and varied career, the Carinthia was a most remarkable ship.
Carinthia was built in 1955 for Cunard Line's Dominion service to
Canada as the
third of the Saxonia Sisters quartet. Her launch, performed by HRH
Princess Margaret, was notable for being only the fourth Cunarder to be
launched by a member of the British Royal Family.
After her time with Cunard she underwent a radical and dramatic rebuild in Italy in 1971 and after this transformation enjoyed a highly successful career with Sitmar Line cruising in North America. She finally was scrapped in Alang, India in 2006 as the last survivor of this quartet.
This website celebrates the history of
this remarkable ship and honours its unique place in maritime history
in the story of Cunard Line's Dominion service to Canada and ocean
travel in the mid to late 20th century.
