What You Can Expect

Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise

Soak up views of Dubai on your Christmas lunch cruise on the Bateaux Dubai

Make your own way to the jetty on Dubai Creek for your cruise. Then, take the red carpet that leads on to the beautiful, glass-walled Bateaux Dubai. 

Receive a welcome drink and nibble on canapés as your boat leaves its moorings, and enjoy the next 2.5 hours as you cruise up and down the winding creek.

Take a seat inside the glass-covered deck, find a spot on the open roof terrace or linger on the outdoor deck to absorb the stellar views of Dubai’s illuminated skyline.

Relish the cooling evening breezes as your boat glides beneath the Maktoum and Floating bridges, and take snaps of the Twin Towers, Deira Tower, Clock Tower and Dhow Wharfage. 

Pass the Grand Mosque, Old Boat Port and Old Souk, and enjoy a second opportunity to take photos of the floodlit landmarks as your boat turns back along the creek.

Savor a delectable, 3-course dinner of gourmet cuisine, with a wide choice of dishes. See the Itinerary for sample menus. When you book, choose from two drinks options to accompany your meal—a selection of sodas or a package that includes house wines.

Enjoy the sound of lilting piano music from the onboard pianist and after your meal, perhaps return to the open-air decks to admire the last, memorable views.

Your experience concludes when your boat docks at the original departure point at approximately 11pm.

Very welcoming staff. Lots of little appetisers. The food was good and freshly prepared on board. The chef did come around after the meal. We booked this particular cruise so we could enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. Didn't expect to have a bottle each! Staff were attentive and very friendly. Good service. The boat itself was very clean and offered great views. There was a small booklet indicating places of interest you would pass and giving a little information on each. I did wonder if there may have been a little commentary but it would probably interfere with good conversation over dinner. Good experience.

This was by far one of the best trips/nights out we have ever had in over 40yrs of holidaying
The food was first class and the service very personal and attentative
There was an outside lounge bar area at the rear of the boat which we were encouraged to visit for the view of the area along the Creek even though there was windows with 180degree view while sitting at your table
We chose the drinks package with the meal which proved to be not only great value for money with a fabulous choice of beers and wine to choose from
The pianist was very good playing a varied selection of music to suit the occasion there was even a small wedding party dinning which typifies the quality of the whole experience
Our two waiter/attendants Ashwin and Harvey combined to make the evening a fabulous not to be missed night out
We will defiantly return when we next visit Dubia

This is truly a high end dinner cruise experience. The food selection is incredible and all dishes are absolutely delicious. The servers are very friendly and proficient and cater to all your needs. While the city view from the ship is not too different from strolling around the city, the ambiance of the dining room coupled with the excellent service and food still makes it a very worthwhile experience.

From the moment we stepped on board we had the most amazing experience. We booked for four people two on the all inclusive alcohol drinks and two all inclusive soft drinks and this worked perfectly. We were made to feel really special and both the service and food was amazing and far exceeded our expectations. At the end of the meal the chef came out to enquire as to whether we had enjoyed our meal which we thought was a nice touch. As you sailed in the Dubai Creek there was not too much to see but it was more about the dining experience rather than the sights. Our age group was from 53-63 and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Be aware that if you are staying in a hotel on the palm in Dubai it could take you over an hour to get there by taxi due to traffic being busy as there is no pick up when booking this trip through Viator. We used a private taxi and it cost us 110 dirhams each way so you need to bear this in mind. The food served was simply top notch and consisted of canapes served at your table, amuse bouche, starters, main meal, dessert and tea or coffee. Should we visit Dubai again would not hesitate to book this trip again.
