Ivernia

Ivernia

RMS Ivernia was a Saxonia class ocean liner, built in 1955 by the John Brown and Company shipyard at Clydebank, Scotland for Cunard Line. She was placed on the Canadian run until the jet aircraft made her obsolete.

In 1963 she was rebuilt as a cruise ship and renamed RMS Franconia. She sailed for Cunard until 1973 when she was sold to the Soviet Union's Far Eastern Shipping Company and renamed SS Feodor Shalyapin.

In 1980 she was transferred to the Black Sea Shipping Company fleet, in which she sailed until 1989. She was laid up until 2004, when she was towed to Alang, India and was scrapped.
