Here is an interesting article by Gene Sloan of USA Today, discussing the grand old ships of Matson Line with Duncan O'Brien who is author of a book on this topic

It looks to be a great book.. However, the price is a little steep. I don't know how to insert the link to the website for ordering, but it's not hard to find

Well, you can't insert the link to the order site. That would violate the forum rules.

But it is pretty expensive for a book. Certainly above my threshold.

Most of the ships were built a couple of towns over from us. Actually, if you want to stump an ocean liner nut, just ask about the history of Lurline. (There was more than one, and 1963 was a key year.)

The price of a book is a bit steep, even for me.
