HISTORY -- SS President Cleveland was an American passenger ship originally ordered by the Maritime Commission during World War II, as one of the Admiral-class Type P2-SE2-R1 transport ships, and intended to be named USS Admiral D. W. Taylor (AP-128). The ship was laid down on 28 August 1944 at the Bethlehem Steel shipyard in Alameda, California, but was cancelled on 16 December 1944. Redesigned for passenger service long before, she was launched on 23 June 1946 as President Cleveland, completed in 1947, and bareboat chartered to American President Lines.
