Unlike its sister ship, the Lusitania, which was torpedoed by a German U-boat during World War I, off the coast of Ireland, the Mauretania survived World War I and continued to operate until its eventual retirement from service in 1934.
During its lifetime, the Mauretania held the speed record for fastest transatlantic crossing from 1909 to 1929, and served as both a troop ship and hospital ship during World War I.
