For more than 50 years, Matson Lines’ fleet of world-class passenger cruise ships introduced tourists to the splendor of travel and the beauty and cultures of Hawaii and the South Pacific.
In the pioneering days of Hawaii and South Pacific tourism, Matson’s luxury cruise liners Malolo, Mariposa, Monterey, Matsonia and Lurline became world-renown and its Waikiki hotels, The Royal Hawaiian, Moana Surfrider, and Princess Kaiulani, extended the magnificent accommodations from ship to shore. Hollywood stars like Bette Davis, Shirley Temple, and Clark Gable cruised in style on Matson ships between the U.S. mainland, Hawaii, and the South Pacific, enhancing the glamorous image of travel.
To promote Hawaii and the South Pacific as world-class vacation destinations, Matson implemented groundbreaking advertising campaigns featuring the creative talents of famous photographers such as Edward Steichen and Anton Bruehl. Matson also commissioned celebrated artists to design memorable keepsake menu covers for the voyages, as well as meals at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Matson’s unforgettable hotel affectionately dubbed “The Pink Palace.” The colorful Matson pieces created by Frank McIntosh, Eugene Savage, John Kelly, and Louis Macouillard continue to be popular vintage travel art today.
