HONOLULU (KHNL) - A local star is celebrating a big birthday and a million dollar facelift.
A massive lei drapes the front of the "Star of Honolulu" as the company celebrates its 50th anniversary in the islands.
On board, guests celebrated with a private lunch and party and check out the ship's new interior.
The star is in the middle of $1 million worth of renovations.
And the company plans to bring another ship to Hawaii.
"We have some plans for the future bringing the new boat called Hokunai`a, he's currently in Billingham, Washington and will be leaving for Honolulu next week and starting operations in October on Oahu," said Ronald Howard, President of Star of Honolulu.
