RMS Empress of Canada, (right) Liverpool (1961). © John Ragla, Licence Creative Commons

RMS Empress of Canada was an ocean liner built in 1961 by Vickers-Armstrongs, Walker-on-Tyne, England for Canadian Pacific Steamships Ltd. This ship, the third CP vessel to be named Empress of Canada. Empress of Canada was planned for the transatlantic route from Liverpool to Canada for the Canadian Pacific Line.

She was a slightly enlarged sister ship and running mate for Empress of Britain and Empress of England on the route from Liverpool to Montreal. During the months that the St. Lawrence was frozen (typically November to April) the ships sailed from Liverpool To St. John, New Brunswick.

After completing 121 transatlantic voyages and 82 cruises for the Canadian Pacific line she made her final arrival at Liverpool on November 23rd 1971, thus closing for good the Liverpool-Canada link. She remained at Liverpool until December 14th and then sailed for London's Tilbury docks for lay-up, arriving (for the first and only time) at her port of registry on December 17th. :wink:

Cunard Line’s RMS CARONIA – The most famous liner in cruising history. she was the “millionaires yacht”!
She was nicknamed the “Green Goddess” by the people of Liverpool because her livery resembled that of the local trams, also known as “Green Goddesses”. She is credited as one of the first “dual-purpose” built ships. :wink: :)
