Cunard Twin Screw Liners

I have a book produced by John Brown c1955. It is the specifications for the building of two twin screw passenger cargo liners. The building numbers are 699 and 700. I would be pleased if anyone could put names to these ships.

RMS Carithia and RMS Sylvania. The wiki page for one lists the build number but not the other.

Carinthia ( not Carithia) was 699 and 700 was Sylvania. I sailed on both of them.

Many thanks. I am having a book "down sizing" so the information will help with advertising it on eBay.
