Built in 1957, she was one of four sister ships built as a joint venture between West Germany and Israel. She sailed for Bermuda Star Lines as the Veracruz 1, next to Veracruz Primero, then the Veracruz. But in 1991, having been sold to new owners in Greece, she was undergoing a complete rebuild. On October 24, 1991, she caught fire, burned out, and by then, overloaded with firefighters' water, capsized.

Of the four ships built, The Jerusalem was sold to Bremuda Star Lines also, named The Miami, then the New Bajhama Star before going on to become the Carnivale, Carnival's first cruise ship.
