The show was very good--dancers were wonderful. Dinner was bad. We had the sirloin and crab legs. Salad was lettuce, sliced tomato and bottled Italian. Steak was barely edible. My companion's was undercooked and mine was filled with gristle. The show was hard to see at times through the bus load of tourists standing in the aisles recording it on... More

For $101 we expected a little more than 4 baby cos lettuce leaves and 2 slices of tomato. Dessert was a small scoop of ice cream. Main was steak and crab with mash and soggy overcooked Veges. I don't eat shell fish so that left the not so tender steak. Overall a very disappointing meal. We paid much less at... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Star of Honolulu! All of the staff were top notch. Our server, Paradise Slade, was over the top and always had a smile. Eseta Tei pointed out a whale to us. It was so cool to watch - even made a big splash for us! (And I understand they typically... More

Boat looked nice, beautiful views. However food was absolutely terrible. Awful, fatty, poor cut of steak with frozen boiled veggies. Aussies stay away not up to our standards at all. Not worth more than 40usd however paid 101usd. Waste of money.

I booked my tickets through the company's website. It was super easy, and I got more than on conformation email, which I found extremely convenient. The location was easy to find, unfortunately they don't validate parking, but it was only $5. There was a performance done 15 minutes prior to boarding which was nice to watch while waiting. The boat... More

My wife and I had our most enjoyable evening on this cruise. The buffet was great as well as the friendly crew and the entertainment. Wish it would have lasted longer. Will take another one when we return to Hawaii.

What a wonderful 2 1/4 hours. Food service and entertainment excellent. Staff made you feel welcome the minute you arrived. We booked the 3 star option and we're not disappointed.
