Celebrate life with a traditional Hawaiian luau. Enjoy succulent Hawaiian food -- like roasted pork and delicious coconut custard -- and enjoy local dancing, folk music and traditions.

The food was good. The entertainment was great. The sunset was amazing. Definitely a must do.

Lots more people than when we went to one several years ago on Kauai, Food was OK, the pork wasn't from a pig in a pit. The entertainment was pretty good - heavy on Tahitian dancing, not Hawaiian.

We did the sunset luau and it was the best. We were on the Sheraton Hotel grounds and the food was fabulous. We had an open (free) bar and a great show. I would do this tour again.

We left the ship early per the instructions on our ticket for the Drums of the Pacific Luau. We allowed the recommended time for tendering, but the wait to tender was short so we arrived at the dock more than 30 min. earlier than expected. After a wait of 45 min. or more someone came by passing out cards for the busses. It was then that we found that the busses were to arrive an hour later than our ticket showed. So we had to wait some more. Eventually the busses came -- about 15 min. later than we had been told -- and took us to the luau. Our busses were the last to arrive and the entertainment had already begun. The food was OK at best, the drinks were lame, but the show was lively and well received.

The Luau was very good and just what we wanted. However, it was overbooked at the Hotel that put it on leading to crowding and difficult access. The food was good and the show excellent but lines lead to irritation among the guests. Smaller attendance would have giving this a better rating.

We also visited the Old Lahaina Luau in Maui. We took the bus out there (a bit tricky and not much savings: $2.50 each for the bus but only $8 plus tip for a taxi; we shared one back to port). The Luau was lots of fun. They have about 400-500 people but everything was so well-organized, you don't feel like you are part of a crowd. The site is beautiful, the food good and the dancing spectacular. The service was fine, albeit a little overly friendly. (No, I really don't want to hug a half-naked young man goodbye... but maybe others do.)

Great Luau...with wonderful dancers/great food/drinks included. Well presented, and well worth the price. Highly recommend.

Very nice, well done. A bit more crowded due to the cancellation of the Honolulu Luau. 6 buses full of people added to the tendering woes.
