We have been twice and love it. The people are great and the boat is fab! I mean how can you beat this? You're on the water. LOVE being on a cruise! The only reason this is not 4-star is for one thing... no whales. But hey I know that you can not control nature BUT I wish the boat company would tell you that certain times of the year are less likely to see whales. I have bene on JAN and April and no whales. I go whale watching all the time and I know certain times of the year the whales are more present. Maybe Star of Honolulu should rename the title to dinner cruise on the waves? not sure. anyway we love them but just know that no one can promise a whale!

We have done this cruise many times! Do NOT get any wine, its cheap! But the lobster was pretty good considering its catered food. Best part is the show! So much fun!! We love the singers and actors and band. Make sure you do the fireworks on Friday! And its alway sbest to do the dinner cruise as the sunset is breathtaking!

We were advised by our expedia Local expert to take the 5 star Sunset Cruise. Our Local expert told us it was amazing a limo was part of the price We made the mistake of not reading the boucher.. The limo was an extra $75 US per person Our night total cost was $256.24 per person we could have Motor coach $15US was never suggested by the Local expert. With the exchange rate From NZ we were paying over $600. we could have done to the Hilton. WE arrived to find we were 1 of only 5 couple seated in a row no body talked we were not intrduced The maitrede was very good except his gloves were dirty. The Food was very average often cold and tasteless. we stopped after the Lob ster was tough and seemed to have been frozen. The Entertainment was average the male dancer trousers were really dirty the dancers looked bored. Ray and i have been lucky with luxury Escapes to sample real 5 star dining. We should have done on the Pacific Star we talked to others across the devide they had had a great night with plenty of people and a tasty Buffet. We did not want to creat a fuse we had to fill in a card then so silly were we put Good . This was not 5 star at all.

This was my first dinner cruise experience and i came away very impressed with their professionalism, great service, and Aloha spirit we were welcome with! We did the all you can eat crab legs and steak option and also had the window seat upgrade. The food was great and as a crab leg lover was very satisfied with their service on refills on the crab legs. The ship itself is amazing and has a great outer deck where we actually were able to see a few whales breaching during the cruise. They also have a upper deck with a smoking area which is a great spot for pictures! There is also live music throughout as well as show which was fun! All in all this was one of the more romantic experiences we did during our visit and would definitely do again!

I did the Star Sunset dinner and show. If you are prone to motion sickness, do not do this! If you do, take some medication. I get nauseous pretty easily but I took some meds before boarding and I was mostly fine! The dinner itself was really good! It started with a "Salad" which I wasn't a huge fan of. It was a few pieces of un-chopped lettuce, a few cut up cherry tomatoes and a vinaigrette. The main entree was a steak and crab legs. The steak way delicious and the sauce it came with really complimented it well. The unlimited crab legs was awesome! I love sea food and I kept those crab legs coming for as long as I could. Desert was a Macadamia Nut Ice cream. I'd never had anything like it, but it was tasty! The show was centered around a 'Newly Wed" couple traveling the islands. It was a fun little story and have the dancers and performers come out into the tables made it feel like you were a part of the show! After we finished eating my friend and I went to the top deck to enjoy the view of Waikiki Beach all lit up during the night. The night air was very refreshing. I will note that my friend did get overwhelmed. If you don't do well in loud or crowded spaces this may not be for you. The performance takes place where you are eating and the dancers get pretty close at times. Especially during the Haka it can be a lot for those with sensitive ears. I thoroughly enjoyed it though!
