Romanic MenuRomanic was launched on April 7th, 1889 as the New England for the Dominion Line, and she made her maiden voyage between Liverpool and Boston on June 30th that same year.

In November 1903, New England was trasferred to the White Star Line and renamed Romanic. That same month, she made her first voyage under White Star Line ownership, between Liverpool and Boston. In December, Romanic found herself on the Boston - Mediterranean route.

On January 3rd, 1912, Romanic was operating between Genoa and Glasgow, and at this time the White Star Line sold her to the Allan Line of Glasgow, who renamed her Scandinavian, and on 23rd March, Scandanavian began to work on the Glasgow - Halifax - Boston run. In May, she operated a Glasgow - Quebec - Montreal service.

In August, 1914, Scandanavian carried Canadian troops to Glasgow.

On October 1st, 1915, Scandanavian, together with the whole Allan Line fleet, was taken over by Canadian Pacific Ocean Services, but she remained on the same route.

Between 1917 and 1919, Scandanavian operated under the Liner Requisition Scheme.

On 18th May, 1920, she Scandinavian was transferred to the Antwerp - Quebec - Montreal route.

In July of 1922, Scandanavian found herself laid-up at Falmouth due to a general surplus of shipping tonnage.

On July 9th, she was purchased by F Rijsdijk of Rotterdam for demoliton, and then a week later, she was resold to Klasmann & Lentze of Emden, and finally scrapped at Hamburg.
