Party in style at a traditional Hawaiian luau. Enjoy traditional Hawaiian food -- like roasted pork and the ubiquitous purple poi -- and enjoy local folk music and traditions.
The dancing and show were terrific!! The skies cleared up and we had great dinner. Only down side was a table full of ppl with children that were talking and crying the entire show. The adults were worse than the kids and they made it almost impossible to understand much of what was being said.
Too many people and seating was terrible. Couldn't see the show except on an angle. The sound system needed updating to better quality. The food was just so-so. The whole experience was disappointing. A waste of time and money.
We used the bus arranged thru Chief's Luau for transportation. The setting was beautiful (already seen earlier in the day on the Pali Coast tour from the ship) and the show was wonderful. The food and drinks were good enough, but nothing to rave about. We paid for the highest level but I really don't think it was worth the difference in price, particularly if you weren't there early enough to get one of the seats closest to the stage. Go for the basic package or the middle level at most.
EXCELLENT - there must have been 10 costume changes during the luau. The entertainment was very good the dancers the fire guy. The food was "ok" the poi is tasteless - taste like whatever the both is. Pork and shredded beef - plenty of food. The fruit alcohol drinks were also good. Some people paid extra for seating - not necessary all the seats are good - at picnic tables and you get a lai here also. Good time this night-
Paradise Cove with fantastic bus guide named Rich - funny and he has a phenomenal ability to memorize all the passenger's names on the one hour trip to the facility. Good food, excellent hula dancers and loved the male fire dancers !
Got us back to the ship around 9:35 PM with plenty of time to spare for scheduled ship sailing.
Chief's Luau. The show part was nice. I couldn't get past all of the flies on the food. It was terrible. Other than that, and that was a big deal, the show was nice, the area was pretty, the activities were entertaining. It was not worth the cost. If you decide to go, don't pay extra for an extra drink.
We loved the Royal Hawaiian Luau. It's intimate, on Waikiki beach, and wonderful. It rained a little and here comes a worker with a huge towel to protect us from the rain We sat there and enjoyed it while others ran for shelter.
This was a luxurious experience.
The Chief's Luau is the best! His fun filled presentation, the stage activities, the hog cooking demo., the food and total package was Great! We had heard this Luau was the greatest. We were not disappointed.
Couldn't go to the Missouri due to high winds :( That was a disappointment but the tour guide made it up by driving us up along the coast and around the mountains for a nice drive out in areas that would normally be another tour...And they still gave us 30% off our tour!
Mob scene! Good food and very good show, but 1200 people is quite a crowd. During the show it poured and continued to rain most of the evening. An expensive disappointment, but I was the one who picked it so I should not complain.
