Carmania Merseyside Maritime Museum Albert Dock Liverpool

Cumard's Carmania and her sister ship Caronia were identical except for thier engines. Carmania was powered by a set of newly invented steam turbines and Caronia by a set of traditional reciprocating engines. The success of Carmainia's turbines led directly to the building of the Lusitania and the Mauritainia and put Britain back at the forefront of marine design

Carmania operated between Liverpool and New York and the Mediterranean in winter. Dhe carried 300 first class pasengers and some 200 others mainly emigrants traveling westwards in third class or steerage

On the outbreak of the First World War she was taken over by the Admiralty as an armed merchant cruiser. In action of Trinidad Island, Argentina in August 1914, she sank the armed German liner Cap Trafalgar. This was the only occasion in which one former liner sank another. Following the war she was refitted and returned to the North Atlantic to remain in service to 1931
