"SS Kronprinz Wilhelm was a German passenger liner built for the Norddeutscher Lloyd, a former shipping company now part of Hapag-Lloyd, by the AG Vulcan shipyard in Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland) , in 1901. She took her name from Crown Prince Wilhelm, son of the German Emperor Wilhelm II, and was a sister ship of SS Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse. She had a varied career, starting off as a world-record-holding passenger liner, then becoming an auxiliary warship from 19141915 for the Imperial German Navy, sailing as a commerce raider for a year, and then interned in the United States when she ran out of supplies.
