Can anyone identify this ship?

I'm trying to identify a photo of a ship. Can anyone offer any ideas or point me in the right direction? The name of the ship is not at all clear in the photo.
It's on a British made postcard which is not dated.

Took a screenshot of your pix and tried processing via PaintShopPro which is fairly limited. Looks like the first three letters might be CAM or GAM and the name has seven letters.

Sorry, not of much help.

I thought the last letters could be ...BANK

She is flying a Number Three pennant, which suggests that she is outward-bound, embarking passengers at Princes Landing Stage, Liverpool.

Yes, it definitely looks like Campania. Thank you so much. Great forum! So the date is some time before 1914 as her last voyage as a passenger liner was in 1914. Pity the photo is not a bit sharper but a good view nevertheless.
