The whole experience was wonderful from the greeting by the Captain to the staff in general. The presentation of the different dishes was wonderfully done and spaced out appropriately. Very nice way to spend our 45th Anniversary.

We joined a large crowd for a dinner cruise on a Friday night. The view of Waikiki at sunset from the ocean was wonderful and the service staff was accommodating. On Friday nights you get to view the fireworks at the Hawaiian Village. Nice evening.

I'm not even sure where to start with this review, our experience was so odd. Also, I generally don't post negative reviews, preferring to focus on the good stuff. However, we paid so much for this trip (over $300 US for 2 adults, which is a substantial amount in CDN dollars) that I felt I should share our experience. I... More

My husband was speaking to a tour operator while we were waiting for another tour to pick us up and thought this sunset dinner cruise was a great idea. Boy was he wrong! First off, there are 4 packages to choose from. The buffet to a 7 course meal. The buffet was the cheapest (I think it approx $100 USD)... More
