Of the fourteen four-stackers built, Aquitania was one of the longest lived and the only one to survive two world wars. Launched in 1913, she was the third four-funneled liner of Cunard, and the only one not to have a Govermment subsidy. Aquitania entered commercial service in May 1914 and was christened «The Ship Beautiful» thaks to her elegant interiors. Unfortunately, she was soon called up for war service as an armed merchant cruiser and her beautiful interiors either stripped out or covered over.
