SS Noordam  was a 12,531 ton passenger liner of the Holland America Line, sailing mostly between Rotterdam and New York. It was built by Harland and Wolff. In April 1912 she alerted RMS Titanic to ice early into its ill-fated maiden voyage. She operated during part of World War I, but hit mines on two occasions and was laid up until the war ended.

 

In 1923 she was chartered by Swedish American Line and operated as Kungsholm I until 1924, for the duration of Drottningholms re-fitting.

 

The charter was a easy to implement by SAL, as the Kungsholm I (ex. Noordam/HAL) was the sistership of SAL:s Stockholm I (ex. Potsdam/HAL) and they even used photos and paintings of the Stockholm I in marketing material for the Kungsholm I.

 

She reverted to Holland America as Noordam in 1925. She was scrapped in 1927.
