Cunard Line's Caronia

As a follow up to yesterday's post on Universal Cruise Line's Caribia, today I wanted to post some shots of the ship as she was operated as the Caronia for Cunard Line.

The Caronia was constructed by John Brown and Company in Clydebank, Scotland. Her maiden voyage was on January 4, 1949 from Southampto,n England to New York via Cobh Ireland. The Caronia was also known as the "Green Goddess" because it was painted in a unique color scheme of four shades of green. She had an extensive lido and outdoor areas for her worldwide cruising role.

She was very popular among cruise passengers and offered an upscale experience to those with the desire to explore the world.

The Caronia's last voyage for Cunard Line was from New York to Southampton on November 17th, 1957. She remained laid up and was eventually sold to Universal Cruise Line.
