We took the 5 Star Dinner Cruise on the Star of Honolulu. This was a luxury treat and truly a romantic relaxing adventure! Get dressed up if you're dining on the 5 Star level as this is a night of class and foodie delights! The captain will greet you and the staff will pamper you. I know of no restaurant... More

I've done the dinner cruise here twice, both times on the all-you-can-eat crab level, and it's awesome! I've heard the neither buffet level nor the expensive level is as good, stick with the middle tier. We also did it on a Friday night the second time, and had an awesome view of the Hilton fireworks. Would happily go again!

A friend invited us to join them on this cruise as they had a good experience with them in the past, so my wife and I decided to tagged along with them. Well I believe I made a wrong choice by saying yes to my friend. The boat was jammed packed like a can of sardines which was a turn... More

The food was very good served buffet style. We did this on a Friday night, so we got to see the Hilton Hawaiian fireworks display. The bar had a variety of cocktails. The water was smooth and the scenery was great. We went round trip from the Aloha Tower to Diamond Head and back. The cost was about $70 per... More

Pleasant evening on the water with dining, music, dance, and scenery. We booked a dinner cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. A very comfortable bus picked us up at our hotel and shuttled to the pier for boarding. Food was delicious, staff was attentive, and the live music was so nice. The musician also served as emcee and not... More
