Amazing night at Star of Honolulu Dinner Cruise! The red carpet treatment was so nice and the delishious five course meal was the finest! Our server Ethan was so accommodating and Freddie, our Host was so welcoming! We enjoyed their part in making our evening so great. The ship is beautiful and it was so cool to see the U.S. Coast Guard escort us out and back into the port. The men and women who perform on the cruise are so talented and their shows were so beautiful and fun!Even when I got some motion sickness (ok, i got sick...), the staff were so nice and concerned and gave me some special treatment. We sat on the back deck for a while as I recovered. The sunset looked like fire in the sky and it was just breathtaking.A huge thank you to everyone at Royal Star Hawaii Transportation and Star of Honolulu for the wonderful experience and VIP treatment! We will definitely see you again and we will recommend your cruise to all of our friends!read more

We recently did an 8 hour private tour in an executive SUV while we were in port on a cruise. Carlos was our driver and he was absolutely wonderful! We were traveling with my mom, who has trouble walking, and he went above and beyond to make sure to let her out in places where she wouldn't have to walk so much. He had a lot of information about the island and places we went to. He also found us a great place to eat for dinner. On our cruise ship, we had Hawaiian Ambassadors who told us all about the spirit of Hawaii, the friendliness of the people of Hawaii, and how the islands are more like one big happy family. Carlos is the epitome of just that, he was not only personable but after our time with him, he felt more like family to us than someone who was driving us around the island.read more

Royal Star did a great job with our wedding. The ceremony and the reception was at Kualoa ranch but most of my wedding attendees were staying in Waikiki. Thanks to the great deals with Royal Star, we were able to bus our attendees up to Kualoa ranch in less than 45 minutes and they could drink and be merry with no DUI's or accidents. Carlos Lee was the driver and he was professional, punctual and courteous. He even stopped at two places in Waikiki to make sure everyone could make it to the bus on time. My family and friends were able to relax and enjoy the time we shared with them at the wedding, and a couple extra drinks, because of the great work Carlos Lee and Royal Star Hawaii did for us. Thank youread more
