My husband and I went on the Star Of Honolulu 5 Star dinner cruise and we were very impressed! The food was delicious and the cocktails were great! We don't eat meat so we opted for the vegan meal for our entree and it was so good! The live jazz creates a nice ambience and the staff were so nice. It was nice being out on the water with the Waikiki view without being in the busyness of it. And we were lucky enough to see whales! If you're going to be on Oahu and want a more intimate dinner experience with beautiful views then this is a great choice!

Danny Pham was amazing treating our 83 year old mother like a princess caring for all if her needs. He even wheeled her personally off the cruise ship onto the Royal Star Bus. He went up and beyond providing 5 Star service. Thanks a million Danny

The food was excellent, the drinks were on point, I had the gin martini, and the music was a nice touch. The views of Honolulu and Waikiki were great and the staff was attentive and friendly. We actually saw whales which was unexpected since it was a dinner cruise. I would definitely come back and bring other family and friends.
