Misleading description. Said it would be dinner and Dancing but no space to dance. No social distancing whatsoever. Service was poor. Only one bar tender for the entire ship. Food was just meh. Lights on the majority of the time so limited time to see the stars. Inaccurate about how many drinks the ad said vs the amount you actual get.

We booked a di ner cruise on advise of our concierge. She had recently been out on the Princess and said the prime rib was great. Ok for us even though we're fish eaters. The cruise started out with no representative telling us how to check in. We finally found the check in booth. Delays boarding. Once on board we found reserved seating some looking backwards. Then the bench was very uncomfortable. I mean very uncomfortable no cushions. Prime rib looked great if that is on your diet. Macadamia crusted Mahi looked like Costco frozen. Not very tasty. No other choices. Drinks one Mai tai pour at table side accompanied by captains apology that they'd been sitting with ice for awhile in delays and they would be watery. One more drink ticket on bracelet. Remember when you could get all you wanted? Well you were charged for any more which backed the line way up. Nice muscian. Not great food for the price. I'll take a flat cat next time with a sling chair.

We just completed a dinner cruise on the Maui Princess last evening. We can't speak highly enough about all aspects of this event. EVERYONE we were in contact with treated us so well, from the time we picked up wristbands, until we departed the boat. Captain Dave is incredibly experienced and exceptionally courteous and helpful throughout our time onboard. I am sorry I didn't catch the chefs name, but the meals we had were superb. Two of us had the Mahi Mahi and two had prime rib, all served just as we expected. We all commented about how we weren't expecting this quality of food, but were very pleasantly surprised. Our server, Jimmy took good care of us. I needed a hand getting off the boat due to mobility issues and feel bad I didn't get a chance to better thank all those that helped. GREAT JOB, Captain Dave and crew, including the chef and off-duty Captain. We'll be back

I loved the Sunset Dinning cruise. Cannot understand the negative reviews, as I went in September and it was perfect. Seemed like all the newly weds, people celebrating anniversaries and just plain travelers like myself enjoyed it tremendously. The staff was wonderful and attentive, the food was very good (too much food - had to take some home with me). And you could not beat the views. Seriously, it was well worth it.
