A town in Oriente Province, Cuba.

Antilla, a screw steamer built in 1904 at West Hartlepool, England, by William Grey & Co., was acquired by the Navy from the New York & Cuba Mail Steamship Co. on 14 May 1918 and commissioned at Hoboken, N. J., on 20 May 1918, Lt. Comdr. Nicolai Kvande, USNRF, in command.

Assigned to the Naval Overseas Transportation Service (NOTS), Antilla served less than a year. She made only two voyages to Europe and back and spent much of the rest of her time undergoing repairs. The ship was placed out of commission on 20 February 1919 and was returned to her owner.
