RMS Empress of Japan was an ocean liner built in 1929–1930 by the Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. at Govan on the Clyde for Canadian Pacific Steamships (CP). This ship was the second of two CP vessels to be named Empress of Japan for the trans-Pacific route between the west coast of Canada and the Far East.

In 1942, as a result of Japan entering WWII, she was renamed RMS Empress of Scotland – the second of two CP vessels to be named Empress of Scotland. In 1957, the Hamburg Atlantic Line purchased the ship and renamed her SS Hanseatic.  The renamed and re-flagged ship was designed to carry as many as 1350 passengers in luxury on the Hamburg-New York route. On 8 September 1966, the ship caught fire at New York gutting five decks.
