MV LIEMBA

The PONY Branch provides its members and guests with monthly illustrated programs in midtown Manhattan, activities such as ship visits, harbor trips, ocean-going cruises at group rates and the annual ocean liner bazaar.

Our website aims to be the premier resource regarding Port of New York passenger shipping, current port news, events that celebrate its history, what to see along the waterfront and how to explore our great harbor.

A special feature is the annual schedule of the port's cruise ship arrivals and departures at the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Bayonne terminals.

At the PONY Branch membership meeting on Friday, September 30, member Tom Rinaldi will present a program on his travels to Tanzania and Malawi to seek out two of the world's most interesting passenger ships: the MV ILALA II (photo above), built 1949-51, and the MV LIEMBA, built 1913-1915. Both relics of European colonialism in East and Central Africa, these junior-sized liners have served isolated communities on the lakes of the Great Rift Valley for a combined total of more than 150 years.
