Enjoy an award-winning dinner cruise with your family, friends, or loved one. The dinner cruise glides you through the Dubai night as the monuments sparkle brightly. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Marina Promenade while you dine buffet-style on a wide array of continental and exotic dishes, along with an excellent selection of juices.
Choose a sunset or later evening cruise on booking, and travel independently to the departure pier at Dubai Marina. Step out along the red carpet onto the prettily lit, glass houseboat. With an upper, open-air deck and lower, glass-enclosed deck—the plush, spacious boat is perfectly designed for relaxing over dinner and soaking in the views. Sip a welcome drink, and admire the skyscrapers around the marina, either as their lights switch on at sunset, or they’re fully illuminated against the night sky. Then, enjoy the pleasant breezes as your boat sails along the marina, passing landmarks and then take in the stunning panoramas of the Burj Al Arab hotel, the new Bluewaters Island, and city skyline before turning back. Along the way, savor a delicious buffet dinner of international dishes alongside sodas, juices, water, tea, and coffee. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. As you eat, enjoy gentle background music and a live guitarist, and after dinner, relax outdoors to relish the views again before returning to the pier. Your experience then ends when you leave the boat.

Good food, awesome view, the guy on the guitar was amazing. I will definitely come on board with them again.
Excellent trip: well organized, tasty food, good service, great Matre'D.The only negative was that half way through the trip, the waiters started clearing the table: we came back with deserts and we had no cutlery, napkins, etc. We were having the bottle of water and that's it; even the glasses were gone.
This was a lovely cruise and the food was fantastic. The waiting staff couldn't do enough for you. There is no alcohol served on this cruise which we were aware of, however, some people got off due to this reason which I thought was odd. Also, the details say that you cruise out to the Burj al Arab....you do not. You go around the marina and out by JBR beach and that is it so don't go expecting to go to the Palm etc because you won't be.
A pleasant evening to finish our holiday. The boat looked nice with fairy lights and I enjoyed the views of the Dubai waterfront at night when the lights were on. Some parts of the marina look unattractive by day, but hey ho.
Would recommend you choose hotel pick-up with this tour, even though that puts the price up. We chose the no pick-up option and got there by taxi, and the taxi driver didn't know where Pier 7 was so he dropped us quite far away from the boat.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was a great experience!
My criticisms are that the meeting point should be made clear. The boat did not depart from Pier 7. Allow plenty of time to locate the boat as this could easily be missed.
Also buffet food tasted okay but I would have preferred if dishes were warmer. Dessert Selection was really lovely. I ate more desserts than the actual main meal.
If you are a food lover then this trip might not be for you but if you are looking to enjoy a great evening with family and friends then it's perfect! The sunset cruise is better as you get to enjoy views in both daylight and night sky.
