Highlights
    What to Expect
    Luau Kalamaku has been voted ‘Best Luau Show’ on Kauai by Lonely Planet. To begin your entertaining evening, make your way to the historic Kilohana Plantation, or choose an option that includes hotel pickup. Upgrade to take a ride around the 104-acre (42-hectare) estate on the Kauai Plantation Railway before dinner. Enjoy the lush tropical gardens as you observe traditional Hawaiian crafts and try your hand at some fun island games.

    If a dinner option is selected, the feast begins with torch lighting and a Hawaiian imu ceremony, in which a whole roast pig is removed from an underground oven. Dig into a bountiful buffet of island favorites, including mahi mahi, teriyaki chicken, lomi lomi salmon and a variety of local vegetables, fresh fruit and side dishes. Mingle with other guests as you dine, and complete your meal with a delicious tropical drink from the bar (own expense). 

    With your appetite satisfied, head inside the Luau Pavilion for an unforgettable show that tells the story of the first Tahitian explorers to land on Hawaiian shores. Watch the mesmerizing tricks of flame twirlers, plus the graceful choreography of Polynesian dancers wearing traditional costumes. Live music accompanies the show, including powerful drumming on instruments handmade by the musicians. 

    After the show, you’ll have a chance to meet the performers and take photos before heading back out into the warm Hawaiian night.

    I gave the 4* for the show. The choices of food was very limited. Pork was very dry. I went to one in Maui that was incredible and was very excited to bring my Grandkids. Show was fantastic. We actually went back to the ship and had something from the buffet.

    We did this activity as an excursion through Norwegian cruise line. The luau is held under a huge open air tent, which was a good thing because we had rain most of the evening. The buffet includes a pig roasted in a ground pit along with chicken, fish, a variety of side dishes
