Hi mkjgs,

Is it possible that the ship you are looking for is the Cunard passenger liner RMS Carinthia? If so, there is information and a photo at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Carinthia_(1925) and a little more info at

Greetings! The ship you are seeking is Cunard's CARINTHIA, built in 1925. She was on the transatlantic run and also made a number of world cruises. Here is a photo of her in the 1930s, after her hull had been painted white for cruising:
