Danube, a 1,459-ton sailing ship named after the second longest river in Europe, was built in 1890 for the Nourse Line.
On 15 June 1891, Danubve made a voyage to Fiji carrying 591 Indian indentured labourers. She also made a trip to Trinidad carrying 609 passengers, arriving on 1 January 1892; there were 29 deaths during this voyage.
Later in 1892, Danube disappeared during a voyage from Guadeloupe to New York City. Her fate remains a mystery.
