The new Canadian Pacific steamer Princess Alice, sister ship of the Princess Adelaide of the previous year, arrived from the Swan & Hunter yard at Newcastle. Her dimensions and accommodations were very similar to those of the Adelaide, being a steel single-screw steamer of 3,099 tons, with a 4,500-horsepower four cylinder triple-expansion engine giving her a speed of 18 knots. Her dimensions were 290.6 x 46.1 x 14.3. She had accommodations for 1,200 day passengers with sleeping accommodations for 206 in 103 two -berth staterooms. The furnaces were so constructed that either coal or oil fuel could be used. Gordon Newell, "Maritime Events of 1911," H.W. McCurdy Marine History of the Pacific Northwest., p. 182.
Three well-known steamships of the Canadian Pacific B. C.Coastal Service, Princess Charlotte, Princess Adelaide and Princess Alice, were sold to Typaldos Bros. Steamship Co. of Piraeus, Greece. The Alice, renamed Aegaeon made weekly sailings to the Greek Islands of Tinos, Mykonos, Leros, Calymnos, Cos and Rhodes. The three veteran Princess liners were transferred to the Greek Flag at Vancouver and made their European voyages from that port manned by Greek crews. Gordon Newell, "Maritime events of 1949," H.W. McCurdy Marine History of the Pacific Northwest. Seattle: Superior Publishing Company, 1966., p. 562.
In December, 1966 the ship, while under tow, was wrecked at Civitavecchia.
