The food options were terrible on the dinner sunset cruise but the cruise itself was nice and relaxing. No entertainment beyond the scenery. But, it's Hawaii so it was beautiful and we got a glimpse of a whale on our sail.

Captain and crew were pleasant, professional, food was good. Asked for gluten free and was told they would, but couldn't tell if they made any changes to the buffet or not. Was able to eat 3 or 4 dishes though so it was ok.
