HISTORY

SS Independence was a US built and flagged ocean liner which entered service in February 1951 for American Export Lines. Between 1974 and 1982 the vessel sailed as Oceanic Independence for Atlantic Far East Lines and American Hawaii Cruises, before reverting to the original name. Independence was then operated by American Global Line between 1982 and 1996, and again American Hawaii Cruises until being laid up in San Francisco in 2001.

In 2006 the ship was renamed Oceanic and, after being mothballed for seven years left San Francisco for Singapore on February 8, 2008. That destination was later changed to Dubai and in 2009 the aged liner left there under tow as the Platinum II for the shipbreaking yards in Alang, India. After having been turned away from those scrap yards due to hazardous materials the then 58-year old ship was grounded off Alang. There the rusting ship's hull broke in two aft of the smokestacks, making refloating impossible and was scrapped on the spot.

Independence had a sister ship, SS Constitution, which sank while under tow in 1997 en route to be scrapped.
