Between 1951 and 1953 the Duquesa was employed on the New Zealand service for a number of trips on voyage charters.
Until the advent of the Port Nicholson in 1962 she was the largest refrigerated carrier in the world at 592,000 c.f.R. in no fewer than 81 refrigerated compartments.
In 1962 she made a voyage out to Australia for Shaw Savill Line to load apples.
