SS United States is a luxury passenger liner built in 1952 for United States Lines designed to capture the trans-Atlantic speed record.
People want to cross the Atlantic on a cruise ship designed to make the crossing in record time? How can "cruise ship designed to capture the trans-Atlantic speed record" not make people think of Titanic?
Well the Titanic was an Ocean Liner not a cruise ship, intead most if not all of the ships that held the Blue Riband where Ocean Liners. And many of those ships where designed to be bigger/faster/more luxurious (edit as needed) than the predesscor. Sure the Titanic is famous but in terms of the UK to US North Atlantinc run which the Titanic was build along with her sisters vessels to do. Arguable Cunards Queens are just as famous.
