As far as the vacation destination of your dreams, it doesn’t get any better than the island of Maui. Known for its gorgeous beaches, lush landscapes and world-class hotels, Maui is filled with adventure from the mountains to the sea, sunrise to sunset. Many a Hawaiian sunset has been enjoyed from the comfort of shore, toes curled up in the sand while watching the sun dip below the horizon. We at Hawaii Ocean Project offer some luxury to the activity with our Sunset Dinner Cruise, an intimate voyage aboard the Maui Princess with dinner and live entertainment; though, let’s be honest, the setting sun and the awe-inspiring wonder of the stars will keep you plenty occupied. You might not experience sunsets the same way again.
When we promise our guests luxury, we deliver. The Maui Princess is the largest luxury vessel on the island. You’ll enjoy premium top-deck seating replete with panoramic views of the ocean so you never miss a thing. The wide-open space of the vessel makes the entire experience feel like a floating restaurant along the stunning coastlines of West Maui. Honeymooners and couples will find this incredibly dream-like and a hallmark of their romantic stay on Maui, while families will enjoy a relaxing voyage at sea serenaded by the calm rustle of the ocean. For kids, it’s a keen opportunity to spot dolphins, humpback whales, and other varieties of sea life when most boats and vessels have docked for the day, meaning the ocean is all yours.
With luxury comes quality table-service to match. Guests will be waited on by our attentive staff ready to serve you upon request. You’ll be treated to a three-course meal with salads and dinner rolls to start. Your choice of entrée: Prime Rib carved on-board, delicious Island Roasted Chicken, Macadamia Nut Encrusted Mahi Mahi with Buerre Blanc Sauce – which is as mouth-watering as it is a mouthful, and, for those seeking a healthier option, Vegetarian Patty served with steamed vegetables dipped in marinara. Soft drinks and juices are unlimited to help you wash the deliciousness down. Just remember to save some room for our very special Cheesecake dessert served with a delectable fruit glaze topping.
Guests have two and a half hours aboard the Maui Princess, so there’s no need to rush. Get to know your fellow travelers. You may even find yourselves delighted by our friendly crew and wait-staff. Otherwise, feel free to kick back and take in the mesmerizing beauty of nighttime Maui and the enchanting glow of the moon and stars above. If you think Maui’s majesty can only be found when the sun’s out, think again. Did we mention that the bar is fully stocked? Guests 21 and over and over will get 3 alcoholic beverages included with their meal, additional drinks at $4 – $6. Live entertainment will be featured on deck so grab a partner and sway to the soothing sounds of Hawaii.
Check-in time is at 5:00pm, with the cruise set to depart at 5:30pm just as the sun is setting. We’ll be out at sea in time to catch the mystifying pink flash of the sun kissing the horizon. For our guests staying in Kaanapali, we are conveniently located at Lahaina Harbor on Front Street. If your accommodations are located in Central or South Maui, we recommend leaving an hour before check-in. We’ll have you back at 8pm soundly.
Our Sunset Dinner Cruise is a great way to cap off your stay on Maui or highlight your journey on the island so far. It’s dinner and a show on a grand and romantic scale. What are you waiting for? Clear your vacation itinerary and book a voyage with Hawaii Ocean Project today!
