RMS Etruria was a transatlantic ocean liner built by John Elder and Co. of Glasgow, Scotland in 1884 for the Cunard Line. Etruria and her sister ship [[[RMS Umbria]] were the last two Cunarders that were fitted with auxiliary sails. Both ships were among the fastest and largest liners then in service. Etruria was completed and launched in March 1885, twelve weeks later than Umbria and quickly entered service on the Liverpool to New York route.
