Sweater/jacket was necessary, as it got cooler during the ride.
There is a ladder if you want to sit on the second floor but the first floor has beautiful tables.

Kona dinner cruise
StevenR_W, Aug 2022
We had a nice experience on the cruise. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Unfortunately there weren't enough seats in the covered area to remain out of the rain. Being an experienced boater I was disappointed with the captain who contained to remain on rainy edge of showers when a clear area in the sun line was open. Limiting the meal to just pork was a bit disappointing also.
Must go

Wonderful sunset cruise
Virginia_W, Aug 2022
The crew members were entertaining and handled every situation with speed, grace and an upbeat attitude. Historical information was very interesting and music was wonderful. Both added to the ambience of the boat trip. The food itself was average.

Our Birthday Vacation to Hawaii
Donna_M, Jul 2022
Everything about the dinner cruise was amazing. My honey and me share the same birthday so that made it that much more special. A highlight was when a spool of dolphins came close enough to our ship to take pix.
Have an emergency evacuation available!
Sheri_P, Jul 2022
Im sure this cruise is wonderful for those who don't get sea sick, but I got horribly sick 10 min into it. I couldn't eat my meal at all. My husband couldn't enjoy the trip because he was busy taking care of me. The crew noticed I was sick right away and every one of them tried to help me. They were all very wonderful. The music was AMAZING!! I wish I could have enjoyed the party. Alls I can say is, there should have been a way to get me off the ship immediately and returned to shore. I had to suffer for the next 3 hours. Any kind of medical evacuation should have been offered. What if I had a stroke or something? They would have (I would hope) been emergency evacuated. Don't make your passenger suffer for 3 hours. What a nightmare this cruise ended up being. And to top it off...It was our 34th wedding anniversary. Totally ruined!!
Dinner + Booze cruise
Carly_I, Jul 2022
We saw dolphins. I like the length of the boat ride. I could tell who the boat ride was catering to. It would be cool to experience a more local experience instead of a second half booze cruise.
Enjoyable cruise.
Michael_M, Jul 2022
Seeing the spinner dolphins swimming and breaking the water. I would also say that the food was good except for the Curry vegetables. I noticed a lot of people did not eat their vegetables as I didn’t. Regular steamed vegetables probably would be better so everyone eats and fills up. Everything else was great and def would rec come down.
