Incres Compãnía de Navegación, Panama 1950-1954 / Incres Steamship Company Ltd., Liberia 1954-1964

Incres Compãnía de Navegación started operations in July 1950 with the EUROPA (ex- Mongolia built in 1923 for P&O). She made 5 round voyages from New York to Plymouth and Antwerp. After that she made cruises from New York mostly to Nassau.
In 1951 the EUROPA resumed the transatlantic route now from New York to Plymouth and Le Havre. After 7 round voyages she went to Genoa were she was refitted and renamed NASSAU. The NASSAU was placed in a service between New York and Nassau.
In 1954 the Incres Compãnía de Navegación was reflagged to Liberia and restyled as the Incres Steamship Company Ltd.
In January 1959 the Union Castle Liner Dunnattor Castle was purchased, towed to Holland and refurbished, re-engined with diesel engines and entered service in December 1959 as VICTORIA.
The NASSAU was sold in 1961 for further cruising.
The Victoria was mainly used for cruising but made some transatlantic voyages between 1960-1964.
The VICTORIA was sold to a Swedish Rederi Aktiebolaget Clipper in 1964 still managed by Incres and continued cruising from New York to the West Indies. Incres started also acting as the New York passenger agent restyled as the Incres Line Agency.
