Favourite non White Star ship

Which non White Star Line ship is your favourite?

I think I would go for Cunard's Queen Mary, I have always enjoyed reading about her and a visit to Long Beach is high up on my to do list.

I have a soft spot for the Italian Line's Andrea Doria - the collision with the Stockholm and subsequent sinking in July 1956 is the first major news event that I remember... that's stuck with me all these years. Because of it I became interested in shipwrecks and 20th century ocean liners after reading about it and seeing references to other ships.

Other favorites - Arandora Star, Caronia, Ile de France.

Morro Castle - not necessarily a favorite ship, but her story is spellbinding -

As is the story of the freighter Flying Enterprise - read _Simple Courage_ by Frank Delaney... wow.
