Our table was right at the back. We were refunded $20 however that was no consolation. The food is about a $5 meal and it was difficult to see the show.

The Luau was fabulous, you start with a botantical garden tram the landscape is simply breath taking and just gets you in the mood for the festivities. Then the demonstration of the roasting of the pig with excellent photo opportunities. The food was very tasteful the drinks all you want mai tais, wine and beer. The singers during dinner very nice. They moved people quickly and you werent waiting long for food. After dinner the show was a great producftion they had 3 separate areas for all of these festiviteis and everything was covered. Really helped for those evening rains. The wings over Kuaui what a life experience as well so economically priced. You received more than your monies worth and 2 people flew for less than 1 helicopter air fare. The guides and pilot took your pictures with the plane provided free to you the pilot was very experienced and did such an awesome demonstration, as well their were only 4 people that are passengers and the pilot very one on one. In a heart beat I would go back to Kuaui and do this all over again.

Just ok. I think it was just WAY too many people to enjoy the actual show.

TOO MANY PEOPLE!!! With 750 people crowded into this gigantic building, the ambiance was certainly lacking. The food was just okay but the Mai Tais were excellent. The show following dinner was quite good although quite long - TOO long, in my opinion.

Very nice train ride with an experienced person explaining about the plantation. 1st Luau that told a story and not just the different dances from different Islands- very enjoyable.

We had the Manor House VIP experience and it was worth every penny. A tropical drink upon arrival, train tour, sit down dinner with champagne and front row seats to the show. It was awesome!

We did the river cruise, the luau at Smith's and a renewal ceremony. Fantastic day. Smith's has beautiful gardens, delicious luau and it was wonderful to renew vows after 46 years of marriage.

Luau Kalamaku The food was horrible and the show, while interesting, is nothing like a traditional luau. The food is buffet style and lacks authenticity. It is worse than the food on the ship. The ship will have you believe that this is an excursion, but they have their photographers there. Most traditional luau's are 30-50 people with various dancing and fire show. The guests are often brought in to participate. This luau is you and your closest 1,500 friends from the ship. Don't waste your money. Go to a real luau and skip the garbage at this event. The show isn't half bad, but is not a traditional luau.

We did a luau in Kauai (my favorite island) that was great. It was through the cruise line. Probably $10 higher than booking it on your own, but it was exclusively for cruise ship passengers only, and transportation included to and from the ship was convenient. We have done a luau before, privately, and it was okay as well, but this one seemed to be a higher quality luau, as was the food served.

You get more for your money, but as I said, you get what you pay for. Lineups, huge crowds, cafeteria buffet, should have provided fans during the show. Kept wondering what the NCL Luau was like

This Luau was at the end of a full day of sightseeing. The food at the Luau is very good. There is a show on a small stage in the middle of the dining area. The tables are round and several seats have their backs to the stage, so if you want a good seat facing the stage, try to get there early.

We booked the Discover Kauai and Luau excursion through NCL. There were a few fun stops, and the Waimea Canyon was the highlight of the tour. The Luau was fantastic. It was an incredible show, and the food was delicious.

We attended the Smith Luau and it was much more than a Luau, you got to tour their 30 acre tropical gardens, watch then dig up the pig, great food, entertainment and then they had the show. It was fabulous. Everyone said that the Luau is a must do in Hawaii but is a waste of time. This was a real Hawaii experience and maybe the other Luau are a waste of time but this one is not.

Smith Family Luau was enjoyable. The view of Wailua Park was spectacular. The food was very, very good. I'm a vegetarian and there was plenty of delicious food available to me. The show was informative and pleasing to watch.
