Completed as one of the most luxurious liners in American flag service, featuring all outside cabins with private facilities, complete air-conditioning and professional entertainment, promising "unhurried leisure at its very best". Operating line voyages from New York to Brazil, Uruguay & Argentina, there were also frequent cruises in winter with some sailings from Port Everglades each year. With sister ship Argentina, she was aimed at the upper-end of the cruise trade, but alas they were money-losers. Laid up in 1969, sold to Holland America Line as Volendam, later Monarch Sun, Liberte, Queen of Bermuda and Enchanted Seas.
