Originally the Hamburg-American Line ocean liner, S.S. Imperator, that operated from Hoboken docks from 1912 to 1914 when it was laid up due to World War I. In 1919 Imperator was sold to the Cunard Line and became the R.M.S. Imperator. She sailed for Cunard under this name for the first time on December 11, 1919.
