We opted for the 5-star dinner on the top deck. The food, lobster and beef tenderloin (you get a decent portion of both) was quite good. The sunset was gorgeous. Great soft jazz. Loved it.

Went on this cruise earlier tonight with 5 friends and had a great time. Crew was very accommodating to one member of our party in a wheelchair. Crew was so nice, entertainment was fun, and food was very good. Dancers and musicians were wonderful. Beautiful views of Diamond Head at sunset. Special thanks to Lhyca, our extremely friendly and attention... More

The food was great, the entertainment was adequate, the view....worth every penny. We met people from all over, and enjoyed a relaxing evening with new "friends". Absolutely recommend this for couples, not sure if it's appropriate for young children, however there were a few on board who seemed to enjoy themselves.

Our sunset dinner cruise was an anniversary gift to us. The transportation bus met us at our hotel and took us to the pier in western Honolulu. We had to walk the equivalent of a few city blocks to board the ship. There were two seatings going on the night we attended, one upstairs and one on the main level.... More

From the get-go this cruise spoke Hawaii. As I boarded I was greeted with Hula Dancers, Alohas and a Mai Thai. I was escorted to my table by Flo and it was clear she had a handle on the floor as guests filled the room. She checked on me throughout the evening to ensure my experience was all I hoped... More

My fiancé and I opted for the 5-star cruise experience ($195pp). We also included the celebrity package for an extra $25pp to secure ourselves a window seat. The 5-star experience consists of a 7-course French style dinner on the top deck of the ship. It is a quiet, private room with air conditioning and no families or children. The staff... More

Lovely evening ... but hot inside the dining area. Much cooler above. Should have gotten the 5 star package instead of the 3 star. Lobster with tenderloin steak was good. Friday evenings adds the fireworks over Waikiki Beach. Dinner cruise - 5:30 - 8:30 pm.

We thought our first experience was going to be a great one. We paid about $100 each for the Friday night 2 minute fireworks show. We were put in a small room with a guitar player and two dancers. The sound system had problems so we watch the dancers with no music., we felt sorry for the dancers. The guitar... More

Friends from Japan were in town and took them for the five star dinner on the Star of Honolulu. Service and ambiance was very nice. Tomato/ravioli soup, butter poached fresh main lobster and prime tenderloin roast with porch in mushroom was so tender and flavorful. Our friends weren't expecting much but we're thrilled! Also 3 drinks come with the meal.
