Built at Aalborg in 1972 as IRIS QUEEN as you said. Sold and renamed in 1976 becoming part of Cunard. Sold again in 1986 she became CENTAURUS and following a fire in the US in 1989 was scrapped at Chittagong.

This SCYTHIA was a passenger liner built in part for Cunard in 1921 by Vickers at Barrow but completed in France.
She was scrapped at Inverkeithing in 1958.
