Famous Ocean Liners

Can you identify the names of some of the famous ocean liners from days gone by? Many of these ships also won the coveted "Blue Riband" trophy which was awarded for crossing the Atlantic in the fastest time. Some of these ships operated with a different company later in their lifetime but the one listed is the original company they sailed with.
Some of these ships were requisitioned for military service during WW1 or WW2.

Cunard's liner was called "Mauretania" and not "Mauritania". The latter is a modern African state; the former is an ancient Roman province, like Lusitania.
