We got the bottom level steak and crab and dinner show. It came with salad, sides , steak , 2 servings of crab legs , dessert, coffee and one alcoholic beverage. The show wasn't bad just too many costume changes. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. Steak came borderline bloody if you want it cooked you better alert somebody immediately. The Staff managed to get my wife a cooked one. Boat returned 15 minutes early. Don't forget to get parking validated at check in or you'll pay $30 instead of $4 on exit. Confused patrons coming out of parking lot cause 20+ minute traffic jam trying to use self service machines. They have 2 levels pricier than this one. Let the buyer beware. For $240 a couple Boat ride, Dinner, Drinks Show, Parking & Tip. Sometimes you got to get a little TOURIST trapped in paradise. Shout out to tour bus driver supervisor that drove me back to my car to get the parking ticket for validation!

"Great food but that's all"

Because of the number of people that have to be fed, the meal lasted over an hour. This meant you have to sit down right away and when the meal is finished so is the sunset and little to see other then the lights of Waikiki. Entertainment just OK. Kind of reminded me of a feeding lot, but a good feeding lot.

"All you can eat crab legs NOT!"

We took the Star of Honolulu for all you can eat crab legs and sunset cruise. Well, it not all you can eat. By the time the server came back to our table he asked if we wanted 3 or 6 legs. We had six and that was the last time he saw him before heading back to the pier. However, we did get some good shots of the sunset...

My family had a great time on this trip. The ship was beautiful, the crew was all great, and the service was excellent. Good food, great dancing, and something I would recommend for anybody visiting Honolulu. Dress code is for the more expensive trips, I was in an aloha shirt, shorts, and slippahs and it didn't seem to be an issue.
