My husband and I were looking for a dinner cruise that would be the highlight of our first trip to Oahu (Sept 2010) and chose the Navatek. It turned out to be the downside of the trip. We opted for the steak and lobster dinner service instead of the buffet. I was picturing a nice lobster tail and a petite fillet. We received a whole overcooked lobster...eyes looking at you and three thin slices of chewy beef with gravy. The carrot and zuchini sticks were about the only edible items. I guess we should have known better. Institutional cooking never turns out enjoyable. Even the tea tasted as though they used the lobster water to prepare it. The three included drinks were watered down, but I prefer them that way, so that was not a downside for me.
The cruising itself was enjoyable but most folks do not get a window seat so your view is blocked by others. If you wanted to see the sunset, you had to scramble to the top deck. The Hawaiian dancers were good and the guitarist was wonderful. Souvenir photographs taken when boarding, were $25.00.
In the future, I will skip the dinner cruise.
