In Watercraft Philately Volume 38 page 2 is given:

Mr. Thomas A Olsen, writing in Stamp Collector for March 21, 1987, identified the liner on United States Scott 1258, 1964 5c as the UNITED STATES.
It seems that her schedule was arranged so that the liner would arrive under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge exactly when it was opened on 21 November 1964.
More on the UNITED STATES is given on viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8506&p=14069#p14069
