5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2013

We had such a great night. Food and entertainment was great and seeing the fireworks from the catamaran was awesome.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2014

This was the second new years eve dinner cruise for my wife and I on this vessel. On the first occasion we were given our paid for window seats tucked away at the rear of the lower deck room. On this last occasion we paid again for window seats and upon boarding were told we were not entitled to window seats. After vigorous argument, including pointing out that window seats were noted on our tickets, we were given window seats. This time we were (reluctantly) given window seats at the lower deck entry door. One of us could see out OK, the other very limited. For some reason we seem to get the last seat in the house as it were. It does not seem to matter how far in advance one books. Pity really because the cruise offshore and fireworks view was otherwise really nice.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2012

The cruise was a disaster. First of all, we were waiting for the ride, and the bus didn't come, so we had to spend extra $30 for the taxi cab. Then, the ship moved away from the pier for about 100 yards, and that's it. The food was very plain. The music, and especially, the singer - terrible. Drinks - just water and juice. Extremely overpriced!
One extra star is for the firework, which was very close.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2010

The entertainment was poor. When we ordered drinks the server asked us for a credit card and we told them we would pay cash for the tab. But they still put the charges against the card and overcharged the wrong card for one drink. The food was good but the choice of food was obviously of Japanese preference, with a lot of sushi.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2010

Spent 156 per person for mostly Asian-based finger food, drinks extra and pricey. Circled around harbor for first hour, then stopped in one spot to watch fireworks. Last hour was going down Waikiki at night about 4 miles out to sea. Entire boat was full of deadbeats, very little dancing. Don't waste your money on this for New Year's Eve, go anywhere else!
