Thursday night is the weekend in Dubai so traffic was terrible, but once arriving to the boat we were met by wonderful staff who made our experience very nice. Food was a nice buffet considering being on a boat but the entertainment was impressive; the whirling Arabic dance was twice as impressive in the enclosed space of the dhow. We thoroughly enjoyed the couple hour cruise.
Whilst the organization for getting to and from the boat was good, we were disappointed when we believed that we were going to get a 5 star buffet. Not so. The food was OK, but not high quality. The scenery by night was average, and the 2 hours was plentiful. The dancing performance was a surprise and lifted the nighttime experience. Probably would not do it again is we returned.
This is not the cruise you want to book if you are looking for a relaxing time. The car was picking up so many other people that we were driving around a busy Dubai with poor air con for over 1.5 hours. We made it to the Cruise just in time. During the cruise, I had to ask the waiters 3 times for iced water and its only after I became very assertive with my voice that they responded. The tables and chairs were really squashed together and yet again the air condition was poor. Food was very basic and not tasteful. Went to top deck and the front part of the boat has the hot air being blown out from the air con. By the time the show started on top deck, people just wanted to get back. I would not recommend anyone using this service.
This was a lovely evening. The creek is much bigger than I expected so it was like going up the Thames, but lovely for an evening with all the light. The food was great and there was plenty of it. Would highly recommend this, very good value for money.
Terrible, unsafe aggressive driver a road rage incident waiting to happen. He messed up an otherwise enjoyable dinner and evening. It was a scary ride to/from the ship. Complained to the tour organizer when we got back to the hotel. Don't pay for this service, you take your life in your hands. Good food, interesting dancing performance afterward.
The cruise is as advertised. The staff and entertainment were very good. If you are looking for a 5 star meal look elsewhere. The food is OK but not gourmet. The upper deck is only for viewing. all meals and entertainment are on the main enclosed deck. Pick-up was on time.
