She was built at the Wallsend shipyard by Swan Hunter and Wigham Richardson for the Cunard Line, a leading operator of passenger ships across the Atlantic. The artist Hemy has painted her leaving the River Tyne to sail to Liverpool before her official trials in the Irish Sea. This painting hung for many years on the quarterdeck of the Cunard passenger liner QE2. It was taken off the ship and brought to Discovery Museum when she made her final visit to the Tyne in October 2008
