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.

I visited with my mother in feb 2016 - food was great, service was excellent, the boat itself was lovely and not tacky, soft music in the back ground as opposed to other boats with loud music / cheering / clapping - this was a calm, gentle experience which is what we wanted , the boat itself is covered in glass so you wont get cold but can enjoy the views the whole journey, brilliant experience in total!

This was an exceptional dinner cruise. The boat is so attractive and set perfectly for fine dining. The food was delicious and served by waiters who are intent on doing a fine job. It was truly a 5-star evening.

I expected a lot, but it just exceeded my expectations. I didn't try the rest of night dinners in a boat, but I tend to think that there cannot be a better one in Dubai. The boat is just beautiful, with an all-glass exterior. Everything is perfectly prepared for an incredible night. The food is also really good, it doesn't...

Lovely, almost romantic, introduction to Dubai. The canal itself was a little under-whelming, but the lights in all the landmarks were beautiful to see at night. The food, service and piano entertainment were excellent. We did not think to order the wine dinner, but were still able to purchase wind on board. Since we had just flown in that morning from the USA this was a delightful way to relax and still see the sights on our first evening. I would definitely recommend this evening on the water.

Worth every penny for the 2.5 hours trip.

First of all- finding the boat. The ticket does say between Emirates NBD and Dubai Chamber of Commerce but we stopped at the wrong Emirates building. We later found that the Chamber of Commerce was in complete darkness. To help others, look for the building with the chevron lights sergeant stripes on the opposite side of the creek. You will find the boat in line with that.
This cruise exceeded all expectations. The menu was the same shown on viator. The food was exquisite. Apart from the 3 course choices there was also a cup of cauliflower soup light and velvety and an amuse bouche. This menu must be michelin star quality. We had the wine package and both red and white were very good. The service was firsr class by both the server and the head waiter. The food was timed to last the 2 and a half hours with time inbetween courses to admire the views at your seat or on the viewing deck. Nice touch to be introduced to the chef at the end.
Its absolutely worth the money and we will do this dinner cruise if we return to Dubai

Food is great, especially seafood. The atmosphere is romantic. Among all the cruises, Bateaux Dubai is the best!
