Poster - SS Kronprinzessin Cecilie, 1910


Kronprinzessin Cecilie was the last in a line of ‘super-liners’ known as the ‘Four Flyers’. The ships had their genesis in the late 19th century when NLD was charged with improving German presence on the transatlantic trade. The resulting vessel, Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, was the first of her kind to boast four funnels. Three running-mates soon followed, but the outbreak of war would limit their service. Cecilie was captured, long with two of her running-mates, by the US Navy and pressed into service as a troopship. Moth-balled after the war, she sat tied-up alongside other German ships for twenty years until finally being scrapped in 1940. An inglorious end for a spectacular ship. Curiously, Cecilie boasted the biggest Steam reciprocating engines ever put to sea. Learn more about Kronprinzessin Cecilie here.
