I thought I didn't know what a luau was, so I looked it up "Hawaiian party or feast, especially one accompanied by entertainment". I even paid extra for the dinner. The only luau I've been to before (and others I've seen) are on the beach...More

The significance of the Hawaiian culture and history are demonstrated in the commentary and music of Hawaii Alive. And the charm of this show is that the family, wife, sons, nieces, and nephews are part of the performance. Aloha nui!

We went here for dinner and show one evening during our stay in Kauai. We loved the show and the beverages that were served. The buffet had a large selection, but you can find better quality food on the island.

This is a great show in the open air courtyard at the Marriott. With pre-ordered tickets for show only, the line to get in moved quickly. Seating is "choose your own" so get there early if you want front row. It's a fairly small crowd...More

This Luau is at the Kauai Marriott Resort, less than a mile, walking distance from the cruise ship.
