S.S. ADRIATIC

 
The Adriatic was a White Star Liner put in service in 1907 as a member of the White Star Line's "Big Four," composing of Cedric, Baltic (II), Celtic (II), and Adriatic.  She was the first ship to contain a pool (although it was more for dipping than swimming) and was able to cross the ocean in nine days.  (This however, would be a disadvantage with the arrival of the larger and faster Lusitania and Mauritania the same year)  Her service with White Star continued until 1934, when Cunard and White Star merged to form a single company.  After one voyage under the new company, she was sent to the scrapyard.
