What a stellar experience! Recommend booking transportation to the pier from your hotel! The food was quite good and pleased my hubby who is a chef! The live music was fun and engaging! The service was fast and friendly! We booked for a Friday which was an hour longer and included a fireworks display. The entire evening was magical!
Booked at the last minute and so glad we did! From the charming greeter for the shuttle to the incredible food, wonderful service, and delightful show, every minute was magical aboard the Star of Honolulu. Dancers welcome you at the dock, then you'll enjoy a mai tai and cheese board as you get underway. Perfectly timed for a spectacular sunset view, we also enjoyed the sights of Waikiki, including double rainbows over the mountains. Be sure to go up to the open deck for your best views. A photographer comes to each table and we ended up purchasing the terrific pic. Your server will also take your picture for you with your camera, if requested. Dinner was beautiful and delicious we had lobster and filet far exceeding our expectations. Lovely jazz and island music during dinner, followed by a great show, with dancers in among the tables of diners. Special kudos to our server, Felicia, who truly embodied the Aloha spirit.
Let me start by saying our experience was greatly impacted by bad transportation logistics/ mgmt. At the pick up destination there was confusion which delayed our arrival to the boat hint: arrange your own transport. Because we were late, we got an awful table with limited views and because of the location we were served one course behind the rest of the boat. Please note there is no AC which means the boat has no real ventilation while you are seated for dinner. You can go to the side deck to watch the views and cool off there. The warnings about no shorts light jacket appears to be in error or needed to be more specific on the season the warning is referenced for. Drinks were sub par
