Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was the golden age of Hawaiian tourism, when cruise lines ruled the South Seas. The crown jewel of Matson Navigation Company'¬?s white ship fleet, the S.S. Lurline, exemplified the best of luxury-liner travel to Hawaii. For four decades, this great lady of the seas embodied the spirit of aloha, carrying thousands of travelers to and from the islands in high style. Full of memorabilia, advertisements, souvenirs, photographs, and art, TO HONOLULU IN FIVE DAYS transports readers to this bygone era, granting a nostalgic glimpse of the luscious artwork, lavish cuisine, and glamorous pleasures of a truly memorable voyage. Includes dozens of vintage photographs depicting life and celebrities-such as Mickey Rooney, Clark Gable, George Burns, and Shirley Temple-aboard the Lurline.

Synopsis:

-- HAWAII: Continues to be the quintessential place to escape to in the U.S. and as an "idea" it appeals to customers nationwide (this is not just regional).

-- NOSTALGIA/KITSCH: This tour of bygone America, when the men wore hats and the women were named Betsy (and a ship could be named Lurline!), will appeal to fans of America's glorious tradition of flashy popular culture.

-- HOLLYWOOD: Also a tour of Hollywood's glory years, with photos of such film greats as Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable enjoying themselves silly on the decks of the S.S. Lurline (Do I hear "cross-promotion in the video department"?).
