"I had a great time with friends and co-workers"
August, 2015
We were a party of 12 people and the service was impeccable. Great entertainment with live jazz music. We took a photo with the captain. From boarding to disembarking the staff made us feel special. Definitely a "Must do" when in Honolulu.

"A Dinner Cruise in the Honolulu Harbour area"
March, 2015
My wife and I went out on a dinner cruise aboard the Star of Honolulu on February 27, 2015. The experience was just great. We booked the five star dinner cruise in order to have top of the line service and food and we were not disappointed.

From the time we boarded we were treated like VIP's and the young man who was to serve us throughout the evening greeted us by name as we had canapés and a drink on the back deck. He showed us to our table and was attentive at the end of the night as he was at the beginning.

Each meal course was served at exactly the right time and presentation was excellent. The food was delicious as were the drinks.

We were entertained throughout the evening by a wonderful piano musician who later joined by a saxophonist, then a singer. During the mid point of our meal we had traditional hula dancers providing an excellent show.

Overall the evening was great success in all areas. My wife and I loved it and would not fail to recommend this to anyone who should be visiting Honolulu as a "must attend event".
Tip: The lower decks seem to have a livlier brand of music with more of a party atmosphere. As we went out on the open deck we could hear their music and wondered what it would be like there. Next time we'll try that..

"We saw whales, what more can you ask for?"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

After talking with the tour counselor at Hale Koa Hotel, we decided on the Star of Honolulu for the whale watching tour with a buffet lunch. We were picked up at 10:30 a.m., next door at the Hawaiian Village by the tour bus and we were off to the boat after two other pick-ups. Our guide was Kayla and she was very helpful and informative as we headed for the dock. The Star of Honolulu is located on the dock at the Aloha Tower Marketplace. After we boarded the ship, we listened to a brief ship and safety orientation from Captain Scott. We also listened to an orientation about the whales from Elana, the marine naturalist. That was informative. When the first call of a "blow" was heard, everyone scrambled to the front and sides, on the different decks. Sure enough, we saw quite a few "blows" and got some great pictures of the backs of the whales - not just their "blows". It seemed that everyone was really satisfied about the number of sightings. We were given a buffet lunch on board and most was good, though I wasn't a fan of the beef, as it seemed a bit too tough. On the way back to the dock, there were also ukulele lessons, lei making lessons and even hula lessons for the brave. With the whale sightings, it made for a really great trip.

I booked our Premium Package( top deck - no kids) Sunset cruise via our resort and they were advised that it was going to be a surprise proposal . Michael ( Maitre De) and his staff looked after us like royalty - not really knowing when! Eventually I was able to get Michael aside and asked him to send out the ring with desert which he did and also videoed the event which thankfully was positive!! The food - 7 courses, was excellent and Micheal's service was impeccable as was the rest of his team. Everybody has their own separate table with good space between each one . All in all a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend it ( Premium Package) My only small criticism is there was no Savignon Blanc on board so if you are a Sav Blanc drinker be prepare to drink Chardonnay for the night !! Thankyou Michael for making this a memorable night John Sanders Australia

Beautiful sunset, gorgeous coastline and Diamond Head Views while gliding through glassy waters off Waikiki. Attentive wait staff and prompt service by Raylene, our server for the evening. Over 2.5 hours of entertainment by talented musicians and singers, amazing hula performances by a troupe of expert Polynesian dancers whose friendly interaction with guests was a delight. A wonderful and memorable experience not to be missed!

Went on the whale watching cruise today and had a great time. We saw numerous whales and had a great lunch on board the ship. Elena and Kayla took great care of everyone, and made a great cruise much better.

"Disappointed "
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed February 22, 2017 NEW
I'm not a fan of large tours which I had told our concierge but unfortunately recommended this anyway. The whales were neat but the boat must stay far away so kind of hard to see. The boat is old and needs remodeling. The crew did a nice job of entertaining during the time when they were no whales. We were promised a gluten free meal which ended up being rice, sweet potato and fruit. Their gluten free menu stated the salad was gluten free but quite obviously not (with croutons on top). The food was not gourmet by any means.
