"Outstanding Experience!"
September, 2018
We went on the cruise after I found it in a tourist coupon book. I elected the 5 star cruise and it was so worth it! We were boarded first, had a truly memorable photo with the captain and had lite snacks and drinks before being seated. As for the cruise itself, the views of the shoreline, Diamond Head, and the sunset were absolutely spectacular. The crew/staff were very attentive throughout the cruise. The dinner was a 7 course masterpiece. 3 drinks each were provided free of charge. During the latter half of the dinner we were entertained by a fabulous jazz performance and traditional hula for the beginning. All in all this was the best event we attended on our week in Honolulu. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone seeking a highly romantic night out!

"Disappointing Anniversary Dinner"
September, 2018
We were in Hawaii to celebrate a wedding anniversary and were told the sunset cruise was a MUST do so we decided to do it for our anniversary. It was sooooo disappointing. We paid about $100 and truthfully it was more like a backpackers get together than a special Occassion celebration. It felt like we were being herded on like cattle to then realise we were on the bottom deck. The food was very average and definitely not worth $100 per person. Drinks weren’t included in that price. We were told there was a fabulous show ....the show was at best a 2 person sing along. It was so so so disappointing. We had told the person booking us in that it was for our anniversary and she said we would get the best seat in the house but in fact we were stuck in a corner that was so ugly even the photographer told us to move to get a nice photo. We declined moving and the photo. It wasn’t something we wanted to remember. Let down for our anniversary. Pricing should be reviewed. It was more like a $30 cruise than a $100 cruise. Biggest disappointment and spoilt our anniversary night

We were a party of 12 people and the service was impeccable. Great entertainment with live jazz music. We took a photo with the captain. From boarding to disembarking the staff made us feel special. Definitely a "Must do" when in Honolulu.

"A Dinner Cruise in the Honolulu Harbour area"
March, 2015
My wife and I went out on a dinner cruise aboard the Star of Honolulu on February 27, 2015. The experience was just great. We booked the five star dinner cruise in order to have top of the line service and food and we were not disappointed.

From the time we boarded we were treated like VIP's and the young man who was to serve us throughout the evening greeted us by name as we had canapés and a drink on the back deck. He showed us to our table and was attentive at the end of the night as he was at the beginning.

Each meal course was served at exactly the right time and presentation was excellent. The food was delicious as were the drinks.

We were entertained throughout the evening by a wonderful piano musician who later joined by a saxophonist, then a singer. During the mid point of our meal we had traditional hula dancers providing an excellent show.

Overall the evening was great success in all areas. My wife and I loved it and would not fail to recommend this to anyone who should be visiting Honolulu as a "must attend event".

Tip: The lower decks seem to have a livlier brand of music with more of a party atmosphere. As we went out on the open deck we could hear their music and wondered what it would be like there. Next time we'll try that..

"Disappointing dinner"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 12, 2019 NEW
We booked this buffet sunset dinner cruise on the Pacific Star of Honolulu. Each level has a different dining option. We chose the buffet as their were 4 of us and we figured there would be something for all of us. Dinner was really a waste of money, only one of us ate more than a few bites! The salads were good but the entrees were terrible! Fish was bland and rubbery, chicken also bland and appeared to be boiled, and the roast beef was extremely tough and mediocre. The bright side was the yummy fresh fruit on the dessert table (mediocre desserts).The buffet came with a free Mai tai which had little alcohol and was sickly sweet. We all love Mai tai's but none of us were able to finish these due to the syrupy sweet taste. The staff was fun and engaging and the entertainment was good but overall wasn't worth the $97 each

TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed February 11, 2019 NEW
I booked this cruise for my Mom and myself. I have to say the food was good and the service and entertainment was as well, however it was so hot on the boat it could not be enjoyed. The flaps that covered the windows were not rolled up and it was extremely uncomfortable. We asked for them to be rolled up and were told some other passengers wanted them down. We are from Las Vegas and can handle the heat but this was so uncomfortable. We did walk around but I’m doing that some of the food sat and got cold so it kinda wasn’t a pleasant experience. I do recommend overall as the staff was very nice.
