Kevin's Activity Tips:
Star of Honolulu is one of those rare dinner cruises that actually delivers a restaurant-quality meal experience with the ambiance of a sunset out on the water. We sometimes hear clients say they don't want to do a dinner cruise because "they are expensive and the food isn't that good ... I can get a better meal for the money in a restaurant." Well, we don't hear this complaint about the Star of Honolulu. They really deliver a quality dining experience and excellent food out of their large on-board commercial kitchen. It has the feeling of a cruise ship ... and not a boat that had the food delivered by a caterer an hour before the ship was ready to sail. It makes a difference.
I've dined on the Star of Honolulu on three occasions and was impressed with the food quality each time. Yes, you are paying more for dinner, but it costs a lot to maintain a ship like this ... you are paying for ambiance that you just can't get at any restaurant on shore.
