MARIPOSA, MONTEREY, and LURLINE (1932, 1933)

 

With Malolo doing great business, Matson decided to expand their reach into the Pacific. Mariposa and Monterey would cover the South Pacific, while Lurline would join Malolo in Hawaii.

 

Unless evidence is found to the contrary, it appears all three ships were decorated identically. A mix of period styles filled First Class public spaces, while Cabin Class had a more contemporary look.

THANK YOU FOR VISITING!

Mariposa (3/3)

All dressed up and ready to go. The "M" for Matson is missing from the stacks because the construction loan had yet to be paid off.
