This was a first class cruise; food was excellent and entertainment great. The views of the sunset and Honolulu at night were spectacular.

Awful experience! My wife and I went on a sunset dinner cruise. I am not a racist but I need to observe that there were about 10 Americans on board on a ship that holds 1000 (?). Primarily Japanese tourists. The food was barely mediocre and the service was terrible. Our waiter was awkward and, likely inexperienced, and barely spoke.... More

Did the Sunset Cruise with the Roast beef dinner. The cruise was nice, the hospitality was good and the show was fun. We were in the front part of the ship and it felt a bit dated and run down. Definitely not worth the $87 though....For the roast beef dinner, there wasn't a lot of choice in salads, meats etc.... More

Although we have taken this dinner cruise boat twice in past years, we will not board this ship again? The sunset views may be incredible; if the weather conditions are good; however you may not get that opportunity; if during our rainy season. The only thing that has changed on this tour boast is the prices; as the cost continues... More

I have taken the 3-star Sunset Dinner & Show cruise aboard the Star of Honolulu twice now and really enjoyed both times. Whenever I have family/friends visit, this activity is always on the list of "must dos". Transportation is easy - you can arrange for pickup from the Waikiki hotels, or from Ko'olina at around $20. The last time, we... More

We took the sunset dinner cruise on Friday night. This was a beautiful cruise! The sunset was gorgeous, as was the nighttime view of Waikiki along the shoreline! Because it was Friday night, we were able to view the fireworks as well. We chose the steak & lobster dinner choice, although there are 2 more cruise choices. There are appetizers... More
