Moana awaits another wave

So Princess Moana is ceasing operations in the Northern Division. In a Facebook post yesterday, the Miller Shipping-owned vessel is looking for a more viable route in Fiji.

There were high hopes for the Indonesian-built vessel that had only begun services in December last year.

But we take it Princess Moana is no match for the already huge presence of the Patterson Brothers Shipping and Goundar Shipping’s services. For now, its projected “wave of assurance” has set sail as owners await another viable route.
