Review by ----------RHO---- for Alii Kai Sunset Dinner Cruise (from Aloha Tower)

Makahiki Means To Party, Eat. & Especially Drink

Posted on: 2014/10/16

For all you that don't know what the meaning of the word Makahiki is; it is defined as a period of celebration (in old Hawaiian times) of a prosperous and 8 months of working in the kalo fields and old fish ponds. Many hula dances, food to eat, and alcohol to drink. What is amazing is that this would need a lot of space for the Hawaiian community to celebrate this ritual here in the islands, but the Ali'i Kai Catamaran could host it all on their beautiful double decker! This was a sunset dinner cruise that I would never forget with an amazing ample amount of food, beers, and friendly staff that consistently check to see if everything is alright. My girlfriend had a blast as well too, especially when the male servers are called up to the dance floor. There is dancing gesture and its called "umi" where all the women in the crowds go crazy for! I found it extremely funny as a server "umi(ed)" in front of her. The sunset was beautiful as it hid behind some of the massive clouds that Honolulu has. Overall it was a wonderful evening and would recommend this to everyeone! Book it here with Veltra since it is a 2 for 1 promotion. (Saved me $84.50).
