    The S.S. Spree was a 6,963 gross ton ship, length 463 ft x beam 51.8 ft, two funnels, three masts, of steel construction, single propeller giving a speed of 18 knots. There was accommodation for 244-1st, 122-2nd and 460-3rd class passengers.
    She was built by AG Vulcan, Stettin, and was launched for North German Lloyd on 17 May 1890.
    She began her maiden voyage on 11 Oct 1890 when she left Bremen for Southampton and New York.
    On 26 Nov 1892 she fractured her propeller shaft and was towed to Queenstown (Cobh) by the Beaver Line ship Lake Huron. After repairs at Milford Haven she resumed service. She suffered the same mishap on 5 Jul 1897 and was again towed to Queenstown, this time by the Atlantic Transport Line ship Maine.
    Her last Bremen - Southampton - New York sailing started on 16 Nov 1897 and she was then rebuilt to 7,840 gross tons, lengthened to 526 ft, fitted with twin propellers, three funnels and two masts.
    Renamed Kaiserin Maria Theresia with accommodation for 405-1st, 114-2nd and 387-3rd class passengers, she resumed Bremen - Southampton - New York voyages on 13 Mar 1900.
