Welcome to our RMS Carinthia website. With a long and varied career, the Carinthia was a most remarkable ship.

The 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.
