Experience a memorable sunset on the sleek Majestic cruise vessel with a spacious dining area and open-air deck offering a relaxed evening off of Waikiki Beach.
A casual evening on the waters of Hawaii awaits as you head out on the Majestic for a sunset dinner cruise. Relax in the comfortable and spacious upper deck lounge as you enjoy unobstructed views of the Waikiki coastline and enjoy a delicious dinner buffet with a cash bar in a beautifully decorated cabin as the sun dips below the horizon. Highly recommended for couples and families with children. On Friday evenings you will have a perfect view of the fireworks off the Waikiki coastline after enjoying the stunning Hawaiian sunset.
Cash bar available
Although the night we went out on the dinner cruise was rather damp and rainy, the crew on-board the Majestic made sure that we still had an amazing night on the water. The food was really delicious, and the buffet line was constantly refilled with fresh, hot food. Normally dinner cruises don't offer memorable dining (I mean you are going for the experience right?), but the Majestic not only offered incredible views of Waikiki and Diamond Head, but a really yummy dinner too. Lots of different options and I was absolutely loving the mahimahi. Yum yum! After eating and a few cocktails, we went upstairs to relax in the lounge, and yes, more cocktails :P It is a vacation, don't judge! It was lovely just sitting and enjoying the live musician (a guitarist who also sang). Oh, and they even had a hula dancer do a few dances too! Total surprise, but a welcomed one. Can't wait for our next visit so we can go again!

Absolutely MAGICAL!! Everything from the food to the ship to the staff to the fireworks was AMAZING!! Could not improve on anyth...ing, thank you for a perfect evening! more
Great value - hotel pick up in modern bus (on time), transfer to vessel, welcoming staff, lots of interaction and information. Ent...ertainment was excellent and free beer all night! All in all a very nice experience = would recommend to anyone who doesn't want the full dinner service more
We booked this trip early in our planning to get the best view of the Friday night fireworks. Great food and atmosphere. Fanta...stic photos taken of diamond head from the ocean view. more
We had a great time! We opted for the sit down dinner to get window seats for 4. The dinner was more food than we could eat whic...h was served course by course beginning with cocktails and skewered shrimp, followed by a salad, lobster, and lastly steak and vegetables. They time the meal so that you are finished in time to watch the sunset. There is a small deck outside that only holds about 20; so keep an eye on the time and leave your table early to secure a spot on the deck to watch the sunset. After the sunset return to your table to enjoy the entertainment and dessert. Overall this was a great experience. more
a very enjoyable night
i really don't have anything to say but i enjoyed it
What a great experience! From when we entered the Atlantis boat until we got off, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We sat near t...he window, ate great food, enjoyed whale watching (saw many) and enjoyed the entertainment. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a great evening. more
We are repeat visitors to Navatek. The entertainment is far superior to any other dinner cruise ship. These people really can sing... and play their instruments very well. The singers are awesome. They don't just do a typical luau type show, they also sing a wide variety of music for listening or dancing. I told one of the singers that she is every bit as good or better than any of those American Idol people! We had a great time! The dancers are beautiful. The crew was very friendly and down to earth. I've been on all the other dinner cruise ships as I am a repeat visitor to Hawaii. We don't have an ocean where I live, so I always want to experience it when I'm there. All the other cruise ships(Alii Kai, Star of Honolulu and Starlet)were horrible. Nothing can beat the smooth ride on Navatek and the unobstructed views of the sunset that Navatek offers. I believe I have heard that no other dinner cruise ship goes past Diamond Head to Kahala and beyond -- and I believe it. Every time I've more
We had a wonderful time. The food was great and the sunset breathtaking
I took my girlfriend to the Navatek Sunset Dinner Cruise, and it was very romantic and fun. We booked the Royal Package, so we we...re taken to the upstairs which was much better than standard in the downstairs (i think!). The foods were great, and we couldn't even finish the three (3) drink tickets we received. The guy who was singing and playing the guitar for us that night was fantastic. The boat itself was pretty stable, and even though I was worried that I would get seasick, neither of us did. :) For the foods, drinks, entertainment we got, I would recommend this cruise to anyone! Our server, Jenn, was very pleasant as well. more

Transportation picked us up on time. We were seated upon arrival to the boat. We were served promptly. the ride was soo smooth. Th...e food was excellent. The entertainment was fabulous. There was plenty of time for pictures and you were able to walk around at your leisure. we got amazing pictures especially sunset pictures, and the crew was great!.. i would recommend this to anyone looking for a fabulous dinner cruise to attend in hawaii. this is a definite must do! the picture attached, was a product of this cruise! more

It was our 38th anniversary and we had a great time! The server and the crew were very nice! I would do it again! Thanks so much.
My husband and I took the sunset dinner cruise to celebrate our two-year wedding anniversary. It was fantastic! For those who worr...y about getting sea-sick, the boat right was very smooth and enjoyable, I did not have any problems. The food was delicious and the entertainment was great. I loved the music, very romantic and low and perfect. The sunset was beautiful. They will take pictures of you on the boat that will make great souvenirs - you need to splurge and buy them! Highly recommended! more
Everything was great. Food, fun, and entertainment. From pick up to drop off. Professional and courteous. Great experience. I...39;d recommend t for everyone. more
Um... yeah. this was an AMAZING way to start our Oahu vacation. We went as a couple doing the regular package. The food was good- ...no real complaints there. and you get one drink (that was pretty weak). and there is entertainment. all as one would expect... but the best part of it was the SUNSET!! Even though it was a little chilly, it was incredibly romantic and we got some nice photos And we SAW HUMPBACK WHALES!!! about 12-15 of them to be exact. Lots of tail flukes and 4 spy-hopping. We were probably the only couple that saw that many because we ate dinner and then decided to for-go the cheesy entertainment with all the ...tourists, and go up on the deck to make sure we didn't miss the sunset. When we went back in, we were surprised how many people didn't go on the deck, and didn't see ANY whales!! TIPS: Arrive early to get a dinner table by the window. Don't waste your time with the cheesy entertainment, the sunset is what makes this trip worth it (and whales!!). Also, get more
We went on the Dinner Cruise for our anniversary and it was so enjoyable. They had some great entertainment (singer and dancers). ...The food was wonderful as well. But to top of our evening we were able to spot some dolphins swimming and jumping along side the boat. Could not have had a better experience and would definitely do this again. more

I would like to thank our hawaii activities director ... We thought we had made reservations for Tuesday, June 8, but it turned ou...t that I had made the reservation for Monday, June 7. They came to pick us up at our hotel on Monday, and we weren't ready. I couldn't believe that I had made such a mistake ... I thought I had been really careful to make sure that something like that hadn't happened ... but, I DID make the mistake. The Oahu Cruise people were very understanding, and told me that they would just pick us up on Tuesday. I then called our hawaii activities director and told her about the mistake I had made. She said that there was not a problem, no extra fee, and that she would reschedule me for Tuesday, and fax me a new voucher to our hotel. Talk about service! She was GREAT! The voucher was at our hotel in minutes! Also, I need to say that this cruise is EXCELLENT! The food was EXCELLENT, and the entertainment was WONDERFUL! Thanks for everything! We had a GREAT more
My Boyfriend and I had an incredible time on the Navatek. The employee who greeted us at the hotel was our server on the boat. She... was the nicest most attentive women ever. The sunset was beautiful. This trip was a sheer pleasure. more

I took my 11 and 15 year old on the cruise. We paid for the top deck with the lobster and steak and with a window seat. We all h...ad a great time. Food was very good, view was excellent, and the ride was smooth. We couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our last night in wonderful Hawaii!! more
My son and daughter-in-law were celebrating their 28th Anniversary and I gave them this Sunset Dinner Cruise as a gift. They love...d it - said food was great and the view of the sunset was awesome. They were able to get lots of beautiful pictures for their album. I would recommend this cruise for everyone. I regret not doing it for my husband and myself since we also were celebrating our 55th anniversary but I didn't want to intrude on their time. more
My trip to Oahu was for my honey moon. Everything was amazing! After 2 weeks of tours, hikes, shopping, snorkeling & beach fun... in the sun-we needed something quiet & romantic. So our last night on this beautiful island was spent on board the Navatek Sunset Dinner Cruise. I chose this cruise line because I am easily motion sick & was told the build of this ship helped prevent a lot of the swaying you experience. It was great! Food was good-hawaiian pork, chicken teriyaki, potatoes & veggies(you want fancy-up grade),drinks were yum-decently priced. The crew was very nice! The most important part of the ship was the observation decks-awsome!! Plenty of room for everyone. I got some beautiful pics & wonderful memories! & the Friday night fire works made a fabulous ending to a perfect evening at the end of an amazing trip!! I would rebook this cruise on every trip I made! more
Wife and I took the dinner cruise for our 25th anniversary. We had a great time. The dinner was excellent, the service was not bad.... You have to remember everybody came on at the same time, so everybody wants something right away. The setting was amazing, nice boat, weather was awesome, and the scenery and sunset so beautiful. We would definately recommend this excursion. more
had a great time on the cruise. food was great. the view was awsome. the staff was great. loved the entertainment. you are treate...d very well. more
It was beyond what I expected. Nice entertainment for the whole family. The food was very delicious. The host where very friendly
Went on the Friday night fireworks dinner cruise. Must admit that the whole experience exceeded our expectations. Food was better ...than expected, boat was smooth, position for the fireworks was good (could have been closer I think). Was not rushed, felt like the crew was there to help us have fun - unlike other places that make you feel like a transaction... more
Excellent value, responsive and didicated to service. Thanks
I loved it! As a native to this island, the sight of the island from the ocean while the sunset was still able to take my breath a...way! If you can afford it, please buy the Sunset Royal Dinner with the Window Seating! If you're going to celebrate an anniversary like I did, it's extremely worth it! If you're a tourist, you will enjoy the local songs that they play and the events they set up. As for the food, it was amazing. Make sure you perhaps call in advanced if you're going to substitute something on the menu!! They didn't have my grilled chicken. Instead, they gave terayaki chicken and were very apologetic! If you want to take a picture in the front of the boat with the sunset, make sure you go at least 10 minutes early or else you won't be able to get a spot to take picture! It will be crowded! DOWNSIDE: THE WAITER SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE! IF YOU LIKE HAVING A NICE SOFT DRINK BEVERAGE, DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO FILL THEM IMMEDIATELY. SOMETIMES THEY WILL IGNORE YOU TOO. more
Your Cruise was the highlight of our trip. We had Nao as our waiter and he was great. He was so accommodating and everyone had suc...h a great time. We were in and out of the dinning area taking pictures of the Sunset and later the Friday night fireworks. We had a great time, but in all the nights excitement we forgot one of our camera cases on board. The next day we received a call and asked if we had lost our camera case. We were already on the Big Island and could not physically get the case. Leslie told us not to worry, that she would have it sent to our place in Los Angeles. When I asked her if she needed my Credit Card to pay for the shipping, she said they would be glad to send it to us. Born and raised in Oahu, this made me proud of the Ohana and spirit of Aloha that was shared with us. We will never forget the feeling of Ohana and look forward to Sailing with you when we visit again. Oh, and the food was wonderful. See you soon. Mahalo more
My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves the food was good but the entertainment was surprisingly good and the staff preformed the...ir duties perfectly . more
We were in Hawaii for our 36th anniversary and the Navatek Dinner Cruise was a lovely and romantic way to spend the evening. We bo...oked the window seating and the spectacular view was really worth it! The Lobster - Steak dinner was delicious. Our server prepared our lobster for us at the table which was a nice surprise. The beef was a bit well done for our taste however. Overall the dinner was very tasty. The show was enjoyable and fun, and the main singers were all really good! There were quite a few honeymoon and anniversary couples, and it was nice visiting with the other diners. Also, we very much enjoyed going out on deck to view the beautiful sunset and beach from the ship. We look forward to another dinner cruise next time we're there. more
Steve & Carole
This cruise is very classy. From dinner to show Done it 3 time
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing...the most beautiful & picturesque sunset I have ever experienced in my life! The buffet dinner was... very nice, the fish was so fresh and just melted in your mouth, there were also pulled pork, teriyaki chicken, salad, veges and from memory Im sure there was rice. Unfortunately we did not experience the Hawaiian show nor the dessert (as the sunset captivated us for the time until the fireworks viewing!). My daughter (13 yrs old) and I thoroughly enjoyed our sunset dinner cruise. more
I had an amazing time! Cruise was fun! I've been to many dinner cruises on the island and the Navatek boat is indeed by far... the smoothest ride I've ever been. We went during the Nagaoka Festival in Waikiki and the fireworks display was so outstanding, which made it more enjoyable and memorable for us! The staff at the Ticket Desk were also very friendly. We got there 45-minutes early and Josh was very kind enough to answer the many questions I had while we were waiting. It wasn't their normal schedule that night and Josh was able to share their regular schedule with me, the transportation and check-in procedures, and wait times from boarding to departure. As for the servers on the boat, they were okay but they could have been better! I would have preferred them to be more energetic and quicker. Our server that night seemed a little too tired and it also took us a while to get the drinks we ordered. Very good food though! The teriyaki garlic chicken was my favorite..yummmm!!!! The Polynesian entertainment was good but I wish it was longer. They only performed three (3) different dances and that was it. The host and singer was also good, I like that she interact with the audience while singing but I wish she could have sang songs that are more familiar to the audience. I thought the songs were too old to be sung these days. Something that I never expected though is the dancing at the end of the cruise! We danced the night away and that was so much fun! I loved it! I'm glad I took this trip as I didn't know this is also available at Navatek. I've always thought this to be more intimate, for couples celebrating their anniversaries or honeymooners who want a quiet and romantic moment but this can be for families or group of friends as well. Thank you Navatek for allowing me and my family to enjoy your cruise! more
It was a great experience. I would like to do it again. great staff on board very well organised , and the show was amazing, good... to see that great atmosphere. Thank you so much to give us that great night we will remember my 50th birthday. more
This cruise was amazing. The Royal Sunset dinner was absolutely superb. I wish I could have done it every night of my vacation.
Do not skimp on this cruise... The window seating is spacious and the views are breathtaking! And when you arrive back@ the Harbo...r, you will be allowed off first. No cramped, uncomfortable seating and no waiting for your meal or to exit off. We're not impatient people but when you have small children and want the views this upgrade is worthy. more
The deluxe dinner cruise was great! We upgraded to the window seating and that was a fantastic choice for our family. The investme...nt was worthwhile.The children had front views of the water and full moon. The dinner was good but the beef was the highlight. It was so tender like prime rib! So good! The fireworks were nice and the entertainment was engaging. The entire staff including the Captain were hospitable and welcoming. It was our second cruise with Navatek but our children's first and it's definitely one of our families' favorite excursions. more
It was perfect, the food, the sunset, fireworks and staff, we even met some very nice people aboard as well, the whole experience ...made our vacation even better more
We had a wonderful time. Beautiful cruise. Do not waste your time with the additional City Lights tour, though. Better to drive... on your own to see these. more
Such a lovely experience, great service and efficient organisation of the whole tour! Can't say more really!!
I took my best friend and 14 year old son on this dinner cruise. We arrived early, got good seats. The dinner was delicious, the... staff was very friendly and informative, and the view was gorgeous and priceless!! We went on the cruise on Friday evening so we were able to enjoy the fireworks as well as the beautiful ocean, sunset and view of O'ahu from the sea. Everyone definitely must add this to their to do list even if born and raised in Honolulu!! more
Good food, entertainment & of course the view! Beautiful!
We took my wife's parents on the this dinner cruise and we had a blast, the service was great and the views were incredible.
We were greeted at our hotel by a Cruise rep and his trainee who had a wonderful smile. We were taken to our boat and directed to... our seats by a wonderful staff who all greeted us with the traditional "Aloha". The Cruise rep and his trainee (Smiley) cited on our table with tremendous professionalism and friendliness making our cruise very pleasant. The food was perfect for this cruise and everything was brought to our table in perfect order. The floor show was spectacular and it was fun seeing the traditions of dance and music. We started off during daylight and cruised the beautiful skyline of Waikiki Beach and Honolulu in the dark. Everyone had a chance to spend time outside on several different viewing areas. This was a great dinner cruise and we highly recommend it to people of all ages. more
I Had such a wonderful time will defintily do it again if i get the chance took my mom to hawaii for her birthday n suprised her w...ith this awesome cruise wonderful meal A whole lobster n steak!! Purple bread was awesome wonderful soo so entertaining they singed happy birthday to ny mom too was soo fun more
Best experience ever!!!! It was a fun activity to do in Hawaii. The service was great and the food was good.
My cousin & his partner were thrilled with the cruise. They loved the food, the entertainment, the skyline and the city light...s. It was a highlight of their 10 day vacation here. more
I would highly recommend the Navatek Dinner Cruise. My husband and I both chose a chicken entree and it was fabulous. The staff wa...s friendly and fun. The entertainment was awesome. This was our second time on board and we will definitely do it again. Thanks Navatek!! more
The dinner cruise was amazing, dinner was great, service was awesome.
I liked the interior of the boat and the dining room was very elegant. Our photographer took our picture and we started the cruis...e off with a drink. They have excellent virgin lava flows and coffee! The boat was swaying to the nice jazzy tunes of the singer. I enjoyed the variety of songs and the musician was a talented ukulele and guitar player. Our waiter was attentive and they placed lightly sweetened iced tea and water in carafes at the table. Sodas and juices are complimentary but you have to order them from the waiter. I liked the salad, teriyaki chicken, cut fruit, and the coconut cake. They have an observation deck that is fantastic so be sure to bring your camera. Overall the cruise is a good value for the price and I recommend going especially on Friday nights to see the fireworks! more
Had a wonderful time. We had the loberster and steak was excellent cook perfectly!
We sent my Grandparents on this cruise. It was an amazing boat. The staff treated them really well. They said it was so much fun. ...The food was wonderful. They said that they wished our whole family would come do it. The fireworks were so cool. Everyone there was having a great time. They want to do it again with our family. Thank you! :) more
This was my first time doing anything like this, and I have to say, it defied my expectations in a good way. I had prepared myself... for something flashy—bordering on gaudy, even—but what I got was something casual and relaxing, yet still elegant. There were no forced performances or over-the-top dramatizations, just a well-prepared dinner, prompt service and outstanding views. In a word, the whole experience felt genuine. It didn't feel pre-packaged or manufactured. I highly recommend it, especially for a group. more
What a wonderful evening! The boat is very elegant and has three decks with excellent viewing areas. The large windows are a plu...s, no matter where you are seated you will get a great view of Waikiki. My favorite part was the lounge area on the second deck, after dinner we enjoyed some cocktails listening to great Hawaiian Jazz music. The transportation was punctual and the staff is very friendly. The dinner buffet is good and there are options for everyone. I had a really nice time with my friends at the Majestic, I would definitely recommend it for everybody. more
It was great cruise but too many people for server so it took a very long time to get drinks.. We were in second course before we... got drinks more
This was amazing, loved the top floor with the nice ocean breeze. I will definitely be doing this again when I come back!!
7.5 billion people and I spent it my two favorite, my wife and daughter. Thanks for being part of our memories!
Lots of fun and great food!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The food and service was absolutely amazing! And the entertainment was just perfect and very personable. Will absolutely do this... again. more
My husband and I elected for the Appetizer Cruise option on the Fireworks night (Friday). The Majestic was a solid, stable boat w...ith seating and standing / inside and outside options. Additional drinks were reasonably priced and the buffet appetizers were tasty. The evening entertainers (two musicians and a Hula dancer) were terrific. Given that this cruise is only on Fridays I booked it from home before leaving, which also gave us something to look forward to in advance, thiugh later learned that some folks were able to secure a spot a few days before. For the price, thus is MUST! I will forever remember watching the fireworks from the ocean with the backdrop of Waikiki hotels all aglow.... more
The food was beyond excellent, the staff was professional, friendly and helpful and the entertainment humorous and thoroughly enjo...yable. My wife and I had a great time. more
We enjoyed the cruise, especially the fireworks and getting to visit with people from other countries. My favorite thing about thi...s particular cruise was having access to all decks. I’m glad I dressed a little warmer than usual and wore comfortable shoes. more
We had a great time on the Navatek. Met some really nice people. The problem was we were right in front of the entertainer's ...and some in the group complained the volume of the entertainment was too loud. Of course you really couldn't carry on a conversation during dinner because the entertainment was a bit loud! The service was great, the food fantasic, just the entertainment a bit too loud. more
Had a really good time on the Navatek Sunset Dinner Cruise! The ride was real smooth and the dinner was good. I'll be making ...another trip aboard the Navatek when I return to Oahu! more
Great food, a great staff, and a beautiful boat. What you would expect from a non-private romantic dinner cruise. Got the 5 drin...ks per person included but didn't have time to finish all the drinks. Window seat was nice but doesn't allow for the best view of the dancers and performers on the stage . I would definitely recommend it as for the price you get everything expected. more
No pitching, No rolling, the cruise was very comfy. The Hawaiian setting sun was so beautiful.
The Dinner Cruise was fine. We did the City Lights tour afterwards and it was a complete rip off. What little naration there was, ...was delivered in Japanese. Don't waste your money. Unfortunately it soured our entire evening. more
good shizzle. i liked it . it was very nice and romantic. but i think that there could be a better selection for the lobster, over...all though, kudos and good job more
My wife and I celebrated my 66th birthday on April 1st on board the Navatek 1. We had a great time and would do it again.
We wanted to do something special for our Anniversary. We're celebrating 6 years. We've never done anything like this. ... Taking the Navatek was a nice experience. We had the best seat. We recommend paying extra for the window seat its worth it. And the Sunset was soo Awesome. I was worried about getting sea sick I'm sorta sensitive, But I was uneffected. I did not get sick :) I've lived in Hawaii my whole life and my Husband has been here for over 10 years so we see beautiful senaery everyday, And I've danced hula and tahitian Yet, Its just nice to get away and enjoy Hawaii for yourself... We had a Great Time and would Do it Again :) Maybe next time we'll take my Mom in Law I think she'd love it! more
Since it was a cloudy day in Oct., we didn't really get a spectacular sunset, but that's not the cruise company's f...ault. The ride to Diamondhead and back was nice. Staff was very friendly, and the hula/ singing show was pretty good. The big bus picked us up a block away from our hotel, so we didn't have to deal with trying to find the boat, or parking. A big plus! more
The Sunset Dinner Cruise was a pleasant experience and we would recommend this event to anyone who would ask and/or we knew that w...ere planning a visit to Oahu. The food was served hot and was excellent. The entertainment was fair. The Cruise along the coast line was fantastic. The crew was courteous, professional, and informative. Based on the time of the year, the only thing that I would recommend is that the dinner should start a little earlier so that you have more time on deck to view the sites and take a lot of photographs since night falls pretty quick. Yes, we would do this again on our next trip to Oahu. more

We have been on several dinner cruises in the Chicago area. This cruise was by far the best. It was a perfect way to finish up o...ur vacation. The meal was very good. The crew was friendly and efficient. The entertainment was alot of fun - I wish that part of the experience lasted longer. We were just getting into the groove when the boat pulled into the dock. Well worth the money. more
The food and entertainment was great.
This was a very enjoyable cruise of Oahu's sunset. We enjoyed the food and entertainment. My husband and I saw flying fish wh...ich to us was icing on the cake. The sunset was amazing to watch and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The waiter showed us tricks on disassembling our lobster, which was nice, I didn't want to make a mess. I think the Navatek is the best because of the smoothness and to be able to go into open waters and still remain smooth. This is a wonderful cruise and a great way to end an evening. more
We originally tried to book the Navatek Cruise for Valentine's Night, but it was fully booked. We then booked the following n...ight (Wednesday 15th Feb), but after receiving our confirmation we were advised that 15th had been overbooked, so we were moved to the 16th. Found this slightly strange, as we were a party of 10, however, no great harm done as we were all free on the 16th. Bus pick up was slightly early, but we lost this advantage when a couple of passengers at one of the other hotels were late, however, still reached the dock in plenty of time. Cruise itself was very good - we had pretty good views from our table. The food and entertainment was excellent and service fast and efficient. Drink prices also very reasonable (a decent bottle of red wine was only $ 20.00). Views from up on the viewing decks were spectacular, and everything finished bang on time at 7.30 pm, with buses sitting waiting for us at the dock, before a speedy ride back to our hotel. Overall a very good exp more
Food was very good. Took the cruise on Friday and saw fireworks from the Hilton Hawaiian Village which were spectacular. Also, t...ook the city lights tour which was spectacular as well. more
Our group really enjoyed the cruise. We paid extra for window seating and it was worth it. Otherwise you end up in the middle of... the room in the traffic pattern for the buffet. Not alot of variety was offered at the buffet. Limited vegetable and salad options. Dessert Buffet food was also limited. If possible take the Friday night cruise so you can see the fireworks near the Grand Waikikian lagoon. We stayed at the Grand Waikikian so were the second group picked up which meant we were on board the bus for several pick ups. Good thing was being the 2nd stop at the end of the night. more
We enjoyed the dinner cruise. I called beforehand and asked what the dress code was, and I was told slacks and a Hawaiian shirt. ... We complied but were disappointed to see that the majority of the guests were dressed in shorts, tank tops, cut off jeans and generally looked as if they were going to a beach party. Given that we paid over $400 for the dinner with tip I think you should enforce the code. I don't like sloppy people and if you want to maintain a 5-star, 5-course event I would suggest you update your activities page to highlight the dress code. Laid back is one thing, unkempt is another. That aside, the cruise was wonderful, the service great and I would recommend to others and likely do a repeat for us. Thanks again. more
My wife and I enjoyed the activity.
Very smooth ride, we had a blast! Would do it again
We enjoyed the cruise and the beautiful view provided on the cruise The food and drinks were very good Service was excellent En...tertainment was very good and the entertainers were very enthusiastic and got the attendees involved in the show more
Awesome cruise. Great dinner. Amazing fireworks. Definitely worth booking for July 4th
It was fun. We will do it again. It was a great way to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
David & Tammie
make sure u book on friday for the fire work show...........................................
Would have liked more free alcohol drinks for the price we paid. At least 3 drinks or lower prices since we already paid so much f...or the sail. more
This is a great option for those that get sea sick! The boat was very smooth! Brandon our waiter was fantastic, and was a good lau...gh. Would recommend and go again more
The views from the ocean were excellent and the people on the cruise as well as the staff were friendly and fun. The food was OK ...and the entertainment was good (I'm not a party person, so that is about the most that you will get out of me.) The most memorable thing was after dinner, when Dolphins were playing with the boat and putting on a show for us. The best view of the sunset was actually when we were docking at the harbor, at the very end of the cruise. more
Everything was pretty good except tables were too close.
the food is delicious but choices are limited. There were wonderful view and music & performence
My wife and I celebrated our 10th Anniversary on board. We had a great time. The food was good and the service was excellent. T...he space on deck was limited, so it was a little hard to see the fireworks. Overall, I would recommend this event. more
Everything was perfect, but the food was not good.
My boyfriend and I went on this dinner cruise for Valentine's Day. It was a pretty full cruise, not an empty seat in the hous...e. We paid extra for window seats and I'm glad we did. We did spend a lot of our time outside on the deck though, the weather in Hawaii is always beautiful. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. The performers worked very hard to put on a good show and were pretty entertaining. I would recommend it for families or couples who are looking for a low key evening. more
The cruise was a blast! The meal was okay, but the views made it memorable.
The buffet package with fireworks is worth it for the ambiance (good for romance) but, the quality of the food was just so/so and ...I didn't eat enough of it to be sure it was actually worth the pricetag per person. more
There was a mix-up with what we ordered and what we were given, but the manager on duty did an excellent job making it right. Over...all, it was a pleasant evening with good food. I would say that the rate is slightly more expensive than what I would expect for the return on the overall entertainment without alcohol. more
Dinner Cruise was awesome. Bus driver on the way was a ass and was nearly punched for being rude to my wife. Told her to be q...uiet and enjoy the ride. This after he told everyone one the bus we could joke with him because he used to be a shuttle driver. Everyone on the bus had to drive by the exact same stops twice because he said we didn't know what he was doing. Whoever scheduled the route didn't know what they were doing it took us nearly 50 minutes to drive around one block If the route would have gone the other way it might have lasted 10 enough said more
This was only my second dinner cruise. I was impressed by the quality and variety of food. The only part that wasn't really g...reat was the fresh fruit. Also, we paid extra for the crab legs--not worth it. They arrived long after we were finished with our meals, and they weren't all that good. We never saw our server after we traded our free drink tickets in for virgin mixed drinks. I guess he figured we weren't going to be big tippers. But everyone else was very nice and attentive. more
The sunset was cool. After dark I enjoyed the Hawaii skyline even more. Need to figure out a better flow through the buffet lin...e. The people were entering the buffet area form both sides which caused confusion and not a lot of area to move around in. more
Me and wife had this trip on our anniversary. Overall it is a ok experience, no surprise. Pick up bit late than scheduled time, f...ood is ok, scenery is good. And return back went smoothly. more
Great way to see d island , eat and relax. D food was great and staff friendly and accommodating
We weren't happy with the variety of food. Everything else was great and we met some very nice people
Great time with my family. Bus a little late. Good food, good music, fun dancing, enjoyed it all. Drinks too pricey. Bring a light... jacket or sweater for outside deck viewing. Waited to book for next/same day and got discount. I guess it depends on season. The boat was only half full. The amenities were very good and clean. more
Cruise was good, food was good, however it appeared to be a little overcrowded
The cruse service took a long time to serve any drinks. The show was so so if you are an older couple the band was ok They ran o...ut of the pork on the first service of food Make sure you get in line first more
Nice window view. Although food was average (steak and lobster) and the tables, chairs and tablecloth looked like something from a...n elementary school cafeteria. Only the view was worth it, which can be quite expensive as a couple. I can cook better meals at home for my girlfriend. more
I had this trip as my honeymoon. Cruise is not big as I thought but it was fine. Food was good and good serve. next time, I... would use restaurant in city rather than cruise. more
The cruise itself was fine. The service was terrible. We had a waiter who I think may have been his first and last night. He forge...t to serve us 1 of the main courses, we ended up with a " no charge" for our drinks- I think someone had been watching his inability all night. There was no way I was going to tip him!! It was a special occasion for us ( our 30th wedding anniversary). Anyway, what can I say. more
Food was mediocre at best. Service was good. Entertainment was good.
I wanted to do something special for my daughter and friend and thought a dinner cruise would be wonderful. I went the extra mile ...and extra money to upgrade to a window seat . I did the reservation almost three to four weeks in advance Upon boarding we were seated next to the wall. The third window seat was not a window seat but just behind the window seat. If I leaned up and out I could see. When I asked to be moved I asked the manager if I could be seated next to the window she stated they were full and she offered a bottle of wine, as I don't drink I asked her to treat me like she would treat her mother, and that is when she told me her mother was nice, implying I wasn't. I had thought I had been nice up to that point I had just wanted to see as that is what I had paid for this time(I have been on this tour before and sat in the middle ) They did offer us an upgrade and a nice private table, meaning quiet, back near the door as to not see the show. The upgraded meal was delicious and as we had all lived in Oahu the show was not really missed. I am not sure I would recommend this tour unless you upgraded to the dinner and not the buffet. I would recommend a maximum of two for the window seating and make sure you state near the wall does not count. Other than the manager's attitude which I allowed to bother me, the servers were efficient, courteous and friendly. more
The boat was nice and the buffet was fair, but the entertainment went down hill fast. The evening started with Hula dancers tat we...re very good and entertaining, but once the Japanese guitarist took over and started singing contemporary pop music, I couldn't get out of the cabin fast enough...And he went on, and on...and on. It was as if they were intentionally trying to chase us outside. Painful. more
Food was good but nothing special. Dinner and desert were fine just very pedestrian considering the cost and hype. We paid for a ...window view. It wasn't really necessary as we finished eating before we got out of port. Service staff were friendly but not customer service focused. Since it was a buffet all they had to do was serve drinks but didn't do that efficiently. The boat was safe and clean but seating area was nothing fancy or luxurious. Entertainment was fine but not really our focus as we came for the views - sun set and shore line. Weather was great. Just don't feel that we got our money's worth. more
The food wasn't very good at all other than that it was great.
the pickup and boat was great. clean, tidy and well presented. the boat especially was reallly nice inside and out on all 3 decks ...(dining, lounge, covered open air viewing). we bought the royal package so got served food rather than a buffet. I wish id taken the buffet as the lobter wasnt good and the buffet looked better.service was marvelous from the staff and crew. and the views from the boat of waikiki and fireworks was perfect. improving the food could take this from a 3 to a 5 easily.h more
When I booked this cruise I was under the impression that there would be private seating for dinner and a sprawling buffet as list...ed in pictures on their website. However, once I arrived I found communal seating and a disappointing buffet that included 3-4 pans of food and two little options for dessert. The food was lacking in flavor and quality and my fiancé only had a salad because the rest of the food frankly didn't look good. For the price, a dinner cruise was not what I expected. With that said though, the entertainment was amazing!! A lady singing with a guitar player and hula dancer were incredible. I could have listened to them all night, the bar was awesome and the views, amazing. You get a good amount of time on the water seeing the sunset and views of the island including Diamond Head. The boat is a little old but still very nice and the staff is amazing and takes very good care of you, leaving you alone but there magically when you need them! Very impressive!! So, in conclusion...I was greatly disappointed with the buffet and food quality. It reminded me of a school cafeteria, however, that lack of quality was made up greatly with entertainment, customer service, views, experiences, and memories. I don't think I would book again because you're really paying for dinner more then the views, but it's a catch 22 due to how amazing the rest of the experience was. If you don't expect much on the food part and really just want an amazing simple night out on the water listening to good music then go for it as you will not be disappointed! All in all we had a good time apart from dinner, but still left With incredible memories and pictures! more
This is a definitely a cruise for the older crowd. If you are wanting something upbeat and fun this is not for you. The atmosphere... is nice and the fireworks were beautiful but it wasn't what we were expecting or hoping for. more
The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The dinner buffet was terrible cafeteria food. I got a cocktail which was undrin...kable. The waiter was nice enough to bring me a different one at no charge. The live music was very good. The 2 person band had a great sound and a diverse repertoire. I've been on several dinner cruises over the years. Overall, I'd say this dinner cruise was worth about 1/2 of the price. more
It was a good cruise, dinner was good but spendy. Sunset wasn't that great evening, nothing we can do about it. Fireworks was... great to see. more
Only 2 complaints. Had ordered Buffet lobster dinner. Wasn't offer the lobster until we were almost finished eating. Chose no...t to have it. It would have been nice to be closer to the fireworks for a better display. Buffet was great as was the music and dancing more
The experience was ok, not great and not bad. However it wasn't worth the money. The food was very average, not a lot of vari...eties for a bug cruise ship. The ship was very far from the fireworks we barely got to enjoy them. If I had the choice I wouldn't go again or recommend this to my friends more
This cruise was a nice boat ride. All employees were friendly, welcoming and pleasant. The shuttle ride to the boat was on time an...d information shared by employees was clear. The buffet dinner was average. It seemed to take a while for serving dishes to be refilled and there was a shortage of utensils. The cruising of the boat was lovely, ample time to observe the sunset, fireworks. The major negative would be only two restrooms available for everyone. The live music was well done and very enjoyable. more
Cramped seating unless you're near the window ( I was barely able to get into my seat). The food was decent, prime rib overc...ooked. Entertainment was alright, ship was very far from fireworks. Overpriced in my opinion -- experience would have been better if were weren't sitting in a sardine can table. more
Food was OK, but nothing to rave about. Service was slow and inattentive. Nice boat ride, but the singer was just bad. If he had j...ust stuck to playing the guitar, it would have been OK, but he didn't...just bad. more
I was in Hawaii for a week and this was supposed to be one of my highlights of the trip. Unfortunately that was not true. From t...he very get go the entire activity was subpar. Let me tell you a little about myself, I am a middle aged traveler from Las Vegas, I have been on 15 cruises all throughout the world and work in the hospitality business, I know what top shelf service is. This was absolutely not from the very first person who met with us at the Bus stop, and informed us of nothing, to the drivers standing around at the end of the evening with us all just stuck waiting for a ride out to the hotel. This is a very average setup, tiny dining room, very average food, below average service by people who barely speak English and never come around to check on you. But the thing I am the most unsatisfied about was we COULD NOT go to the upper deck to view the sunset or the views along the ship because it was BOUGHT OUT by a group of Japanese tourists. NEVER was I informed of this prior to booking my dinner, NEVER was I told of this upon coming on board, only after I attempted to go up to the observation deck. (I should have realized something was wrong when we sat in the parking lot for approx. 20 mins and watched 3 Other buses come in and get let in before us.....again never told anything by the boat rep on the bus). WHAT?? This is why I booked this one and not the HONOLULU STAR, and now what I paid for I cannot have? I will be speaking with my credit card company about this issue as I Did not get what I paid for as the observation deck was the reason for picking this dinner cruise. In short, if you want to pay $115 for a vegas style buffet with NO service, bad representatives and No information then book this Dinner cruise. If you are smart check out the other couple of choices, I have a feeling you will enjoy it better. more
I paid to upgrade to a window seat. I was stuck in a corner by the door, so I had NO window seat and was cramped in. I could not s...ee the stage. The food was very bad. The pork was mostly fat, and the "prime rib" did not seem like prime rib at all (fatty, tough). It was so miserable inside that we spent most of the trip outside, which was much better. The ride was very smooth and beautiful. We saw flying fish! The sunset was nice too. We did have a delay getting back into port, so were offered free drinks. All in all, I was very disappointed by the dinner service and seating (really should not charge extra for people to be cramped in a corner where you can't even see the stage, and I reserved well in advance so we really should have had better seats). Will not be going on this boat again. more
i don't normally drink very much and felt like I wanted to drink a few drinks on the Sunset Fireworks cruise. Our male waite...r remarked "Boy you drink alot!" when I ordered my 3rd drink. more
Would not do this cruise again nor recommend it, as too many things were wrong and/or unprofessional given the expensive price of ...the cruise. 1. Bus pick up at hotel was 25 minutes late. 2. The bus driver went 15 miles per hour (literally!) all the way there and didn't seem to really know where he was going. People were honking at him all the way there, to which he seemed oblivious. People in the bus were really complaining all night about it. 3. Then they RUSHED us through some souvenir photo lineup. 4. So then we had to rush through our dinner, literally woofing down food, which was pretty much cold by that time. Serving staff was extremely disorganized. 4. Went up to the next deck level, where the "lounge" WAS FREEZING COLD! Everyone was complaining about that, too. Needless to say, it was empty all night. 5. The fireworks only lasted 5 minutes! FOR THE PRICE OF $256 BUCKS, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS TOUR TO ANYONE! NOT WORTH IT WHATSOEVER. more
The Cruise went well in regard to the view of the sunset and the moon rising over the volcano. The staff was accommodating and pr...ofessional. We ordered the steak and lobster and we were very disappointed. In general, the meal was cold, the steak was not tasty and who puts gravy on a steak. The worst part was the lobster. It was not fresh, stringy, old, and way over cooked (may have been cooked a few times prior to our consumption). I have had lobster all over the world and this was the worst I ever had and would not have it again. If you are paying top dollar it has to be for more than the view and the lobster was junk. I raved about this venue with our friends that we brought with us for their first trip to Hawaii and instead of eating a good lobster, I had to eat my words. I would submit a photo but it would be of a crappy lobster so I will hold back. more
It was so , so ,was expecting more entertainment, would recommend another cruise
My Christmas cruise was exciting at first. The atmosphere was great. Then the issues began. The food line was disorganized. Food h...andlers were not keeping up with filling the food trays, people were waiting for more items, it was mess. The waitress could get the drink orders rights, the bar bill was disputed. I thought to myself I paid a lot of money for what I thought would be a wonderful cruise on a special night. BOY WAS I WRONG. more
Absolute waste of time and money! Mediocre food -- and that was the high point. Food kitchen atmosphere. "Entertainm...ent" was an annoyment -- loud, off tune, completely amateurish. Other than the costumes, not much difference between the "professionals" and audience participation. 20+ year old ship that shows its age -- and no signs of refurbishment. It's a smooth sailing vessel, but noise, smelly, and dreary. "4.5 hour" cruise included less than 2 hours at sea -- and that was enough to have me thinking about abandoning ship. more
Don't choose cheaper one. The buffet was not good.
I've been on other sunset cruise years before so I'm qualified to compare this with them. This was at least $40 more exp...ansive than the other(current price) & everything was worse than them. The ship was much smaller(I have been on small Alaskan cruise also & that was just for the ride without any show or dinner but bigger than this) & the upper deck was closed for some reason so we were confined to small area to the front of the boat. They claimed the shape of the boat gives certain advantage to give us a smooth ride but the other big one was not rough ride anyway. That's not all. There were 3 pathetic female only dancers consisted of 2 whites and 1 asian (not Hawaiian) changing clothes 3-4 times, dancing to the not so Hawaiian tunes, 2 so so singers singing not so Hawaiian songs while I witnessed on that very day the other cruise line was welcoming their guests with bunch of mixed authentic looking dancing group on the outside of the boat already!(I was waiting for our ship near the other ship office because our ship office was on the obscure pier far from the aloha tower) While they got this puny show going on, they had some of guests dancing for them(?), had them take pictures with them & SOLD those to them(??). Since I've tasted the other boats' all I can say the food was neither terrible nor especially great. They provided one drink for free but well, I paid $40 more so... The only reason I chose(?) this cruise(??) is that the other one was sold out 2 days before. I should've made reservation. Last time I didn't have to b/c I guess it was Feb & not exactly hot season. if it happens to u, don't ride this. For the show, go to the Polynesian culture center or something & for dinner, well, there r tons of good restaurants out there w/o bad singers make u dance for them aren't there? I'm not really picky person & it was our second honeymoon so I was in 'let's make the best out of it' mood but I certainly will not ride this cruise line ever again for sure. more
The initial greetings and boarding was great, everyone was friendly and we were really excited for the sunset dinner cruise. Howev...er, the food was awful, the service was terrible, and the initial friendliness was gone as soon as we left the dock. Two hours trapped on a boat with rude people and terrible food and service is not how I had expected to spend my Christmas dinner with my family. This was a huge let down. more
