Review by Doug for Maui Romantic Sunset Dinner Sail Cruise with Open Bar - Trilogy Catamaran

Perhaps Summer is Better

Posted on: 2016/04/12

Based on reviews, my expectations were pretty high. The only thing high was the cost and the brutal 30-40 MPH winds. This cruise should have been cancelled. The day before the Dinner Cruise I received a call to confirm my reservation. The weather unfortunately for 4 days was rain and high winds. The day before the wind was very strong. I asked about the wind conditions and was told no problem as they sailed to a calmer protected area. On the day of the Dinner Cruise we showed up and the wind was howling. You could not even wear a hat. The boat is very nice, the crew was great and attentive. The Captain even said Ma'laea Harbor was the windiest place in Maui. He joked that the salad may blow off the plates. He actually was not joking, the salads did blow off the plates. We were instructed to bring a light sweater as the evenings could be cool. By the end of the trip we needed full ski suits and gloves. Everyone tried to gather in the enclosed part of the boat to escape the wind and cold. The Trilogy out of Lahaina may be a better option as the wind is blocked by the mountain range. If you book, just make sure of the weather forecast. I can envision this being a very nice experience, but due to the wind and cold, it really should have been cancelled.
