She was bought by China Navigation in October 1960 and renamed "Kuala Lumpur" after a refit at Taikoo Dock. Used as a pilgrim ship from Malaysia to Jeddah and did cruises to Australia and NZ and Pacific islands in off season. Broken up in Kaohsiung in December 1971.

I sailed on the Dilwara - twice. To Hong Kong and back. She was a troopship then.
