Her first voyage from Genoa to South America under Italian flag began on 13 November 1883. In 1884, she was named SS Nord America only. She was chartered by the British government in 1885 to carry troops to Suakin, Sudan and in 1899 the Russian government chartered her to carry troops between Odessa and Vladivostok in connection with the Boxer Rebellion. In 1900, she was refitted by Palmers Shipbuilding and Iron Company and her engines were replaced, reducing her speed to only 13.5 knots. Between 5 May 1901 and 25 March 1908, she made 58 round trips between Palermo, Naples and New York. Beginning in 1909, she was used solely as a cargo steamer, and on 5 December 1910 carrying a shipment of horses from Buenos Aires, she ran aground off Morocco. She was re-floated and towed to Genoa, laid up and scrapped in 1911. (en)
