The Royal Mail is the oldest British steamship company and with its affiliated lines, now ranks as the largest shipping combine in the world. This company, founded in 1839, is noted for its pioneering spirit, the running of unique cruises being the evidence. It was the first company to introduce modern cookery upon its vessels, and the first to install bathrooms. In 1849 it commissioned the first trans-Atlantic mail steamer to be fitted with a screw propeller.

The orca is a splendidly equipped triple-screw vessel of 28,150 tons displacement, particularly designed for cruising purposes, having unusually spacious decks and sumptuous appointments and being especially well ventilated for tropical sailing.

Features of the steamer include a gymnasium, outdoor swimming pool and veranda cafe. During the summer, the orca operates as one of the fleet of famous "O" steamers of the Royal Mail Line plying between New York, Cherbourg and Southampton. (Note 1)
