During the period from 1922 to 1927, Melita was in Canadian Pacific's Antwerp to St. John service. She then provided service from Britain to Canada, beginning in April 1927.
After 146 Atlantic crossings, Melita was used for local cruising until she was sold for scrap in Genoa in 1935. She was bought from the breakers by Italia, renamed Liguria, and used as a troop transport. She was scuttled in January 1941, after being damaged in a 1940 air attack on Tobruk. She was then raised and scrapped in 1950.
Nikolaus Lakatos immigrated from Segenthau, Romania, to Quebec, Canada, aboard this ship in 1924.
