Overhauled at New York early in 1944, Cincinnati served as escort flagship for the crossing of three convoys from New York to Belfast between March and July 1944, guarding the passage of men and equipment essential to the invasion of Europe.


On 28 July, she sailed from Norfolk to patrol the Western Mediterranean during the time of the assault on Southern France, and returned to New York 9 September. After overhaul, she joined the 4th Fleet at Recife, Brazil, 17 November, and patrolled South Atlantic shipping lanes until the close of the European phase of the war.
