Hawaiian food on a cruise

You can’t have a Hawaiian vacation and not go on a cruise. 

If money is not a concern, one of the best ways to try out Hawaiian cuisine is by going on a Five Star Oahu sunset dinner and jazz cruise.

While seated at a comfortable, private table, you will dine on seven different signature courses and sip on premium beverages.

The Three-Star Deluxe Sunset Dinner Cruise also offers local cuisine and live entertainment but at a lower price. 

We recommend the Catamaran Cruise with a Hawaiian meal if you want something with a little more adventure.

You get to snorkel, and it is accessible in the pocket as well. 

If you don’t want dinner, but want to experience the cocktails popular with the locals, try out the Waikiki Sunset Cocktail Cruise.
