The cruise was awesome and the staff was too. They were outgoing and were there anytime we needed a refill on the unlimited crab legs. The view was amazing. The food was delicious. We got the celebration package and got a framed photo to take home. Hula show was awesome too! You can tell these people love what they do!... More

My family and I recently went on the Friday Night Firework Cruise with Paradise Cruises. The food was good, but not excellent, the staff was attentive, and the views were terrific. I think the whole family enjoyed the cruise. On Friday nights, the Hilton Hotel puts off fireworks after the sunset. We were able to see the sunset, fireworks and... More

Hated it. Boat was not ina good condition and crew seemed like they had already tapped into the alcohol. Drinks were overpriced. Boat got too close to the whales, and circled them, breaking all kinds of regulations. Their "on-board naturalists" is a joke, unless you count the voice playing on speakers in the background. Absolutely no info was given, and... More

1/1/2007-We decided to go on the Star of Honolulu for their New Year's Celebration, to the tune of $150/per person, and it was by the far the biggest rip off and most half baked New Year's we have ever spent! The fireworks in Honolulu Harbor were wonderful, and we could have viewed them from our Hotel and saved ourselves the... More
