16 November 1907 journey took five days. No details were provided. But the rumor went about severe vibration at speeds of 25-26 knots. :(
This was also the Lusitania, and the problem highlighted more with time.

Did you know that towards the end of Mauretanias career built on her so much in the engine room that she made about 90,000 horsepower instead of 70,000? And at the same time set a new record for her top speed, 27 knots!
