The highlight of the Star of Honolulu Sunset Dinner Cruise and Luau Show is the vibrant Hawaiian sunset.

You pass the golden beaches and resorts of Waikiki ant travel to the iconic Diamond Head Crater before returning to Honolulu harbor just in time to see the city skyline lighting up. The Star's glass enclosed dining rooms offer brilliant views of these landmarks and the ship's four viewing decks and a 60-foot-high observation deck offer panoramic views.
