Voltaire was built to replace the three "V" class passenger liners in World War I. Both she and her sister ship, Vandyck, came from the Belfast yard of Workman Clarke & Co. Ltd, Comprising five holds for refrigerated and general cargo, and accommodation for 300 First, 150 Second and 230 Third Class passengers. She entered the New York - South America trade, bringing the passenger fleet up to five ships, on a fortnightly service on the route. Voltaire was laid up during the Depression before being re-fitted for cruising in 1932. In 1939, she became HMS Voltaire, an Armed Merchant Cruiser and was sunk by the German raider, Thor.
