Went on the sunset cruise with family. From the time we arrived we were greeted and attended to there was at anytime a question of where to be or when. The food was excellent as well as the entertainment. My favorite was my server Rose and the Manager John both were always present to attend to what we needed as well as everyone else. I would attend this event on every vacation I take in the future to this area.

Great evening all around. Dinner was better than expected, very generous crab leg portion. Staff music and show were great and were there for us non stop. Sunset, Diamond Head and Waikiki views also non stop. There was always something going on! The 2 hour duration seemed just right. Pretty good value all in all. Nora Mae our server was awesome!

"Nice ship but no whales."

We had a morning whale watching tour with breakfast included. The food was quite good with quite a wide selection buffet style. Once under way you can wander around the ship following a brief talk from the captain on what you can expect to see. Unfortunately we didn't see any whales which was disappointing but these things can happen, nice cruise though, and a sighting would have made all the difference.

I have been whale watching with the Star numerous times. The staff is friendly and aims to please. The late morning cruises offer cultural activities (ukulele lessons, hula lessons, lei making).

This was such a wonderful trip! We brought the whole family, including my 11/2 year old granddaughter! The whales were very cooperative, swimming under us and all around the boat. The entertainment was very enjoyable. We even took hula lessons! I highly recommend the excursion. Everyone made us feel welcomed.
