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.

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

Definitely recommended. Finding the right boat turned out to be a little tricky but once we found it we had the most lovely evening ever. Food was excellent and so was the service. I found the photographer service a bit over priced but the experience was an absolutely marvellous one.

We had a party of 11 people for the Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise. It was lovely. Food was awesome, the boat was elegant. The cruise was full that night and we had a great time. The whole boat is enclosed by glass and the air conditioning worked great. We were very comfortable. Exceeded my expectations. Make sure you bring your voucher--they couldn't find two of our reservations, but we all had our vouchers so no problems.

Excellent food, a great way to see the old Dubai. The alcohol upgrade is certainly worth it. was surprised that we had about a bottle of wine per person too all included.

Excellent food and very accommodating when 11 of us showed up who have each booked separately and they were able to get us all seated together.
