Princess Alice was the most prominent of the three Liners - she appeared in three episodes ("High Winds", "High Tide", and "4th of July"), in High Winds she was in need of repair and the Stars (and Zebedee) all fought against the heavy winds to bring her safely into port. When she appeared in the 12th episode 4th of July, she was fully repaired - and was celebrating Independence Day heartily with the other vessels whilst being loaded by Big Mickey,She makes a brief cameo in High Tide. In Salty's Lighthouse she was callad Princess Anne.
The Princess Alice is based on a ship built in 1900 for the Hamburg American Line named in honor of the daughter of Queen Victoria. After the first world war however she was moved to the United States Line (which explains her nationality in the show) but her name was changed to USS Princess Matoika in post war service, then SS President Arthur in 1922, and finally SS City of Honolulu in 1927. In 1933 she was scrapped. She however shows off a livery similar to the Duchess in contrast to the real ship's livery.
Her profile card in the TUGS board game gives her nationality as American.
