We can’t imagine why anyone would want to get off a cruise ship and then get on a smaller boat to go on a dinner cruise, but if that’s what you’d like to do, the Majestic & Star of Honolulu dinner cruises depart from the same harbor where cruise ships arrive in downtown Honolulu and the timing does work. If you’d like to do the Hawaii Nautical Sunset Cruises, it is about a 10 minute cab ride to Kewalo Basin Harbor.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Oahu is our favorite place to do a dinner cruise because it combines Hawaii’s natural scenic beauty with the Honolulu city lights at sunset. The Majestic is a beautiful new vessel that feels more spacious than the Navatek boat that it replaced. I went out on their dinner cruise recently with my wife and some friends to compare the differences. While the Navatek offered unique lines, the boat was starting to show its age. The Majestic is a more conventional-looking motor yacht, but looks new because … well … it IS new!

When we boarded the Majestic we were escorted to our table which is on the lower deck. Guests who boarded before us were already heading to the buffet line. At first it felt a little odd … I had never seen a dinner cruise where people start to eat before the boat even leaves the dock, but there is a logic to this. First, it minimizes the line going through the buffet. Second, starting to eat while the vessel is docked means you will have more time to wander around and enjoy the view after dinner. Just plan on eating brunch instead of lunch earlier in the day, so you are hungry for dinner when you first get on board.

Coffee, tea, and soda are included with the buffet, but there is a nice selection of mixed drinks, wines by the glass and the bottle, and beer available for purchase. I thought the rates on these were reasonable. A bottle of wine that we buy for $15 at our local market was in the mid $20′s … not a bad markup compared to many restaurants.

The buffet itself was a nice upgrade from our experience on the Navatek a few years ago … both in terms of the quantity of choices and the quality of the food. You can also order a Lobster upgrade for $20 or a Steak and Lobster upgrade for $27 which we sprung for (hey, it’s a tough job … but I needed to get the full experience … I ate steak and lobster because I’m looking out for YOU!). Our friends thought the buffet was pretty good and they said they wouldn’t bother spending money on the steak and lobster upgrade. At any rate, it’s a decision you can make onboard.

The dining room itself looks very nice … three rows of round tables with huge nearly floor-to-ceiling windows gives everyone a great view. They aren’t selling “window seat upgrades” because it isn’t really necessary. If you are in the middle row of tables that isn’t right along the window, you’ll actually have a better view than someone sitting right next to the window (since the tables are round and their back would be turned to the view). And because you eat early your best views are going to be from the upper decks while you are walking around anyway. The second deck features a cocktail lounge with attractive and comfy leather sofas, a dance floor, live entertainment, and more nearly floor-to-ceiling windows like those on the lower deck. There is also an open-air bow area in front of the bar on this second level. The third and uppermost deck is an open-air viewing area with a covered roof. We really liked the ability to wander anywhere on the ship … this is NOT a dinner cruise where you are stuck at your table all night.

The one thing I miss a little about the Navatek … because of its unique hydrafoil stabilization system it was smoothest when it was cruising fairly fast, and for this reason they used to brag about being the only dinner cruise that went beyond Diamond Head … all the way to Koko Head. The Majestic is a conventional hull but has gyroscopic stabilization which works best at slower speeds, so they are now going as far as Diamond Head and cruising back to HonoluluHarbor. While it was nice to go further, the scenic attraction of dinner cruises on Oahu is the Waikiki skyline lit up at twilight, and as soon as you pass Diamond Head you lose that view anyway. So … not going as far actually gives you more time to enjoy the twinkling lights of Honolulu’s many tall towers.

 

The entertainment was small … one hula dancer, one singer, one band-in-a-box musician playing the guitar … but they sounded great and did an admirable job of attracting people’s interest. I thought it looked a little like a “tough crowd” when we first started the evening; by the end of the show everyone in the lounge was laughing and smiling. And here’s the nice thing … if you don’t WANT to watch the show you don’t have to … you can go outside to the bow and enjoy the view, or head to the upper deck. It’s your choice whether you want to have fun with the crowd in the lounge or go outside in search of a romantic spot to enjoy the night air.

One final note about the seating during dinner … tables seat 6 and 8 in the dining room, so couples will likely be seated with other couples during dinner … much like a typical cruise ship dining room. Some people look at this as an invasion of their privacy; others look at it as a chance to meet new people and talk about what you and they have been doing on vacation. It’s not uncommon to make new friends, and to have your vacation improved with the insight you’ve gained from someone else. And on this cruise you won’t be stuck at that table all night anyway!
