The Man Behind the Meal
Meet the man behind our delectable onboard fare – Chef Norman Soderberg! Born and raised in the town of Keaukaha, Hawaii, Chef Soderberg grew up with a deep appreciation for the majestic creatures of the land and sea. This early love inspired him to pursue a career in the culinary field, which prompted a move to the island of Oahu. In his first culinary job at the Chart House in Honolulu, Chef Soderberg learned the basic dynamics and essentials of operating a kitchen, consistently demonstrating a personal desire to learn and grow.
This dedication has since led him to study under a number of renowned local chefs at celebrated local restaurants, including Chef Fred D’angelo of Restaurant Ola and Chef Chai Chaowasaree of Chef Chai. He also served as sous chef of Beachhouse at the Moana, which won multiple noteworthy awards under his direction.
As a member of the Star of Honolulu team, Chef Soderberg consistently delivers the finest in inventive cuisine, while adding a personal, island-inspired touch. Whether you’re enjoying a Pacific Star Sunset Buffet or a luxurious 7-course French style meal on our Five Star Sunset Dining & Jazz cruise, you’re sure to disembark smiling…and also satisfied!
