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.

FINAL DISPOSITION
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.

Civitavecchia.
