"Star of Honolulu"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We had a great evening on the Star of Honolulu for our 5 year anniversary. Check-in was quick and easy at Aloha Tower right next to the boat. The entire staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The food tasted great (beef tenderloin and a whole lobster!) with unlimited fruit, cheese and crackers. We were treated to a free glass of non-alcoholic champagne upon seating and the two free premium drinks. The entertainment was fairly good but the views of Waikiki and the sunset were the real treat. We even snuck a quick view of a couple of whales.

My wife and I were having a wonderful time. Dinner was great, the servers were friendly and the ambiance was welcoming. Towards the end of the night the musicians began to play and we danced and were still having a great time. As we were chatting with the table next to us, the Maitre D came to our table and basically told us to shut up. First, we were not being obnoxious, second, we were not the only table talking, yet we were singled out. We later found out the pianist was the one who complained, not a guest, the pianist. This was a dinner cruise, people talk, it was not a private concert for him to shush us. This was rude, and for the money we paid for this dinner cruise, was totally un acceptable. If the pianist wants an attentive crowd he could either play better or find a different venue to play for. Either way, you do not treat paying customers that way.

A great evening, food was delicious, no shortage of crab claws, steak was tender(rare) vegetables, salad, ice cream, mai tai,. Service as fabulous. everyone gets involve with dancing and singing. It was a terrific cruise to see the sunset and Waikiki from the water. It is a very large boat so it is very stable. I would recommend. Good for everyone.

We saw numerous whales, often within 50 yards of the boat. It was a very enjoyable experience. The buffet lunch was also delicious.
