She was withdrawn at the end of 1967 and sold to Universal Lines and renamed Columbia. In 1968 she was sold to Star Shipping and renamed Caribia. Some cruising but after a fire and then an engine room explosion she was laid up at New York. She broke in 3 pieces after running aground on Guam in 1974 whilst under tow to Taiwanese ship-breakers.
