MS Kungsholm was a passenger liner owned and operated by the Swedish American Line from 1928 to 1941 on transatlantic services from Gothenburg to New York as well as cruising out of New York.

It was built at the Blohm Voss shipyard in Hamburg, Germany. In 1942 the ship was requisitioned by the United States Government, who placed it United States Lines flag, and renamed it USAT John Ericsson (NY-307). Its first cruise was transporting USMC troops from San Francisco to New Zealand. Following the end of World War Two the John Ericsson was sold back to the Swedish American Line in 1947.

Instead of returning to service SAL it was sold to Home Lines in 1948 and renamed MS Italia. With Homes Lines the ship served on a variety of routes, including Genoa-South America, Genoa-New York, Hamburg-New York, Hamburg-Quebec, New York-Nassau as well as cruises from New York to the Caribbean. In 1964 the ship was sold to Freeport Bahama Enterprises for use as a floating hotel under the name MS Imperial Bahama. In 1965 the Imperial Bahama was scrapped at Bilbao.
