SS Deutschland was a passenger liner built in Stettin and launched in 1900 by the Hamburg America Line of Germany. The rival North German Lloyd line had launched Germany’s first four funnel liner, Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse in 1897, and SS Deutschland was built by Hamburg America as Germany’s second four-funnel liner in order to compete.

Although SS Deutschland was able to capture the Blue Riband from Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, crossing the Atlantic Oceanin just over five days, she suffered from persistent engine issues,[2] and was withdrawn from transatlantic service in 1910 after just ten years. At this time she was renamed Viktoria Luise and converted to a dedicated cruise ship. As Viktoria Luiseshe saw brief service in World War I.
Because of the bad condition of the ship after the World War, it was not
seized by the Allies and was for a time the only remaining large steamship
sailing under a German flag. In 1921 she has converted again into
an immigrant ship and renamed Hansa, although changes in United States immigration laws reduced the value of this trade, and ultimately she was sold for scrap in 1925.
