Royal Mail Ship
Royal Marine Ship
Royal Mancarrier Ship
Royal Motorized Ship
RMS was used for seagoing vessels that carried mail under contract to the British Royal Mail. Having the title "RMS" was seen as a mark of quality and a com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage, because the mail had to be on time. Today, some modern ships like RMS Queen Mary 2 also use "RMS", as a gesture to Cunard's history.
