Ship appears to be built around the turn of the previous century. Lifeboat arrangement much like RMS Nile (1893), but obivously not her.
I'm stumped by this one, anyone else have any suggestions?

RMSP ARCADIAN
Built as ORTONA for PSNC.
Converted as full time cruise ship as ARCADIAN. First cruise January 1912. Less than 3 years and then went for war work.
ARCADIAN did make 5 cruises to Norway in 1914. Not sure before that. At least you can datet he photo to1912 -1914.

By cross-checking the name and port against digitized newspapers, I came up with the date for the picture being 19. June 1914.
