SS Baltic was an ocean liner owned and operated by the White Star Line. The Baltic was one of the first four ships ordered by White Star from shipbuilders Harland and Wolff after Thomas Ismay had bought the company, and the third of the ships to be delivered.

In 1889, after Teutonic entered service, the ship was sold to the Holland America Line and renamed Veendam after the Dutch city of that name. On 6 February 1898, the Veendam hit a derelict ship and sank, with all onboard saved.
