Altered photo of ALBERTVILLE, LEOPOLDVILLE or ELISABETHVILLE

Anyone knows which passenger liner is this?? The website which i found this image says that is from a 1955 magazine.
EDIT: It looks to be a altered photo of either Albertville, Leopoldville or Elisabethville of Compagnie Maritime Belge, but with some changes to look like a different liner

Have spent more time than is healthy on this one.... she looks like a CMB ship such as Elisabethville or one of her sisters with the upper deck plated in..... did Cockerills build others to this general design?

Re the funnel... it looks like this is an advertisment for purifiers or some such... maybe they 'photoshopped' the funnel marks to make it a 'generic' shot.... maybe they even added the 'plated in' area to the photo....

David first spotted the likeness and having also spent more time than sensible I think you are absolutely right , Cisco. It's a 'faked' photo. The pattern of ports on 'D' (lower) deck match exactly those on Albertville, Leopoldville and Elisabethville and the other features have been added as disguise in the studio.

Yes, at one point, i quite suspected that it was one of the CMB "villes" ships too, but as with those differences, I was not sure..., now as Cisco said and eddyw confirmed, it is definitely a "fake" photo!!! Thanks guys for helping me!!!
