The Hamburg-Amerikanische Packetfahrt-Actien-Gesellschaft (HAPAG), or Hamburg America Line, was a transatlantic shipping enterprise established in Hamburg, in 1847. The Company's ships were among the largest and fastest connecting Europe with North American ports, including Hoboken and New Orleans. The Hamburg America Line lost almost the entirety of its fleet twice, as a result of World Wars One and Two, as a result of attacks and war reparations. This is just a few of the ships: Hansa = Sovetskij Soyuz America = America Ariadne 1 = Lady Gwendoline Augusta Victoria = Normannia, Kuban Batavia (1899-1924) = Polonia, Bavaria 3 (1905-1934) = Calixto Garcia, Bavaria (1921-1958) = Sontay, Belgravia (1899-1945) = Riga Bethania (1898-1944) = Parisian, Bitterfeld (1930-1943) = Mariso Blücher (1901-1929) = Leopoldina, Bosnia (1898-1924) = Frangestan Brasilia (1897-1920) = Norseman Bulgaria (1898-1924) = Canada, Caribia (1933-1983) = Ilitch Cincinatti (1908-1918) = Covington Cleveland (1909-1923) = King Alexander Columbia (1889-1907) = Rapido, Terek Corcovado (1907-1954) = Sueh Cordillera (1933-1979) = Russ Dania 1 (1889-1927) = Montserrat Dania (1904-1924) = Tsad Dortmund (1926-1971) = Lugela Emil Kirdorf (1922-1963) = Ardeal Prince Bismarck (1891-1924) = Venetia, Don, Moscow Fuerst Bismarck (1905-1935) = Friedrichsruf General Miter (1920-1950) = Arthur Habsburg (1906-1933) = Teutonia 4 Hamburg I (1899-1928) = President Fillmore Heluan (1908-1931) = City of Lucknow Hesse (1922-1946) = Fechenheim Holsatia V (1909-1928) = Frisia Empress Auguste Victoria (1905-1931) = Empress of Scotland Imperator (1913-1938) = SS Imperator Kiatschou (1900-1933) = Princess Alice King Friedrich August (1906-1931) = Montreal King William 2 (1907-1947) = Madawaska, US Grant Crown Princess Cecilie (1905-1926) = Princess Leuna (1927-1970) = Kozma Minin, Pulaski Los Angeles (1928-1956) = Roda Magdalena (1928-1980) = Rio Magdalena Moltke (1901-1925) = Pesaro Niederwald 2 (1921-1942) = Asuncion Normannia (1890-1906) = Patriota, L`Aquitaine Oakland (1929-1968) = Sperrbrecher IV, Oceana (1890-1927) = Scot, Alfonso XIII, Vadco Nunez de Balboa Orinoco (1927-1963) = Puebla, Juan de Garay Palatia 1 (1894-1925) = Nikolaiev, Norodovoletz Patria 3 (1938-1985) = Empire Welland Pennsylvania (1896-1924) = Nansemond Phenicia (1894-1937) = Kronstadt, Fleiss, Vulcain Polynesia (1904-1938) = Colonia, Hohenstein, Tel Aviv President Grant (1903-1951) = President Buchanan President Lincoln (1903-1918) = Servian Prince Adalbert (1902-1917) = Princetown, Alesia Prince Joachim (1903-1933) = Mocassin, Porto Rico Princess Victoria Luise (1901-1906) Rhineland 3 (1927-1941) = Behala Rhenania 3 (1904-1916) = Feltre Saarland (1923-1943) = Teiyo Maru Saxony II (1922-1949) = La Plata Sachsenwald 2 (1910-1932) = Earl of Forfar, San Francisco (1927-1943) = Rhakotis Sauerland 2 (1928-1944) = Sperrbrecher VII, Sibiria (1894-1916) = Hertha Silvia (1901-1938) = Rivera Steigerwald (1921-1943) = Santa Fé, Thessalia (1904-1933) = Galicia Thuringia (1923-1949) = General San Martin Toledo (1914-1933) = Kigoma Vaterland (1911-1938) = SS Leviathan Vancouver (1930-1959) = Curacao Venetia (1891-1917) = Bellagio Vogtland (1924-1943) = Berakit Westphalia III (1923-1946) = General Artigas Württemberg (1921-1947) = Jan Wellem Ypiranga (1908-1950) = Assyria The company built a large ocean liner terminal at Cuxhaven, Germany, in 1900. Connected directly to Hamburg by a dedicated railway line and station, the HAPAG Terminal at Cuxhaven served as the major departure point for German and European immigrants to North America until 1969 when ocean liner travel ceased. Today it serves as a museum and cruise ship terminal.
