We had just come from an 11 day cruise and found this evening to be a major letdown. The staff tried to be accommodating but were not only a fraction of the professional service we were used to on our cruise. The food was good but the included beverages were low level. The entertainment was mediocre. We would not do it again, and would not recommend it to others.
I booked this for my parents this year as they had gone to hawaii for my mums birthday. They loved it! They had never sat in a limo so i went all out and booked them a pickup and drop off. They both were the happiest. They loved the cruise, the food and the entertainment. They said the staff was very helpful and really nice. They even got my mum a surprise dessert. I spoke to the company over the phone, who were kind and very helpful. Thank you very much to all who helped.
The service was great!! The food was great, although the service is rushed as one other reviewer pointed out. Where the whole thing fell down was the entertainment. The entertainment was cheesy, at best. I expected jazz music as was in the description of the event. There was no jazz music at all. It was lounge singers singing and playing songs from circa 1972 era. If they were at least good, that would be one thing, but I felt like I was in a Las Vegas lounge from 40 years ago and not in a good way. It was NOT good and at some point, when it got loud towards the end, it was really bothersome to both my husband and me. I don't feel that the description should read jazz as no jazz is actually played. It's just bad karaoke.
This dinner cruise was wonderful! 2017 marks 60 years in business for the Star of Honolulu cruise line, so these folks know what they're doing. The 5-star dinner cruise is a somewhat dressy occasion jackets and cocktail dresses suggested. We opted for limo pickup from the hotel, after which we were led to the top deck of the ship and greeted by the captain for a photo with him. Also on the top deck were hors d'oeuvres and freshly poured guava or mango? mimosas. Then it was off to the dining area for cocktails and the superb 7-course meal. The jazz musicians and singer were excellent and kept the audience engaged. The cruise goes along the coast of Honolulu, and the view of the city from the water is magnificent. Be sure your phone/camera is charged because you'll want to step out on the deck and take pictures. The Hilton Hawaiian Village hotel fires off fireworks every Friday at 7:45 pm, so the Friday cruises fill up a little faster book early if you want to catch a Friday cruise . There are other more casual dinner cruises offered, but splurge a little and treat yourself to this 5-star cruise. You won't regret it.
This was so relaxing and the food was so good. Everybody was really dressed up so if you plan on this tour make sure you read the dress code. Got cool picture in nice frame of us with captain and the staff was really great! We had hotel pick up and drop off, and was easy and relaxing and nice to get dressed up after a casual day of the beach.
WORTH EVERY PENNY! !!
You guys really made my mother's birthday vacation a 5 star rating. She loved everything. A trip of a lifetime for her. I will be back and will definitely use your services in other locations. I didnt realize this cruise was for couples but everyone sang "Happy Birthday" Mahalo
