River Portraits, the Liner Sylvania by Gordon Bauwens.


River Portraits, the Liner Sylvania by Gordon Bauwens.

Cunard added four new liners to their passenger fleet during the 1950s. All were built by John Brown & Co Ltd, Clydebank, for the St Lawrence route to Quebec City and Montreal, Canada. Fourth in this quartet of sisterships, which included Saxonia, Ivernia and Carinthia, Sylvania was also the last ever Cunarder designed exclusively for North Atlantic trade. Launched in November 1956, she entered service the following summer with Liverpool and Greenock her UK ports. Sylvania maintained a reliable and regular service on her Canadian route until 1961 before transferring to the New York run as replacement for the ex-White Star motorship, Britannic. In 1965 she began a new role in Mediterranean cruising, initially sailing from Liverpool then Gibraltar. Two years later she emerged from a refit with white hull and her own hovercraft. As with her sisters, Sylvanias primary transatlantic career had been all too quickly overtaken by jet air travel, inevitably leading to her sale by Cunard in 1968. However, her useful life was far from over. As the Albatros, she was still operating in the Bahamas at the time of writing.
