Thank you to Matson Navigation Company (Matson)!

The SS Lihue is being deployed from Long Beach on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, for one Hawaii voyage only, replacing the MV RJ Pfeiffer, which has been delayed en route by typhoons in the western Pacific Ocean. We commend and thank Matson for taking this proactive approach consistent with their (and our) commitment to the highest service standards for our mutual customers.
