The last White Star liner

I do not remember seeing White Star Line's famous passenger ship BRITANNIC calling at Lisbon while cruising, but she used to visit Lisbon on her cruises from  New York  as a USD earner after WW2 until her demise in 1960.~It was a time when only the more fortunate could enjoy long luxury cruises, And getting there was half the fun.
Even if in the early nineteen thirties White Star lost its' independence and was amalgamated with Cunard leading to the establishment the Cunard White Star Line, in fact White Star disapeared after their final ship was sold to breakers in late 1960.
