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.
Our friends and my husband were extremely happy with the service, the trip and the food !!! It couldn't be better. The ambiance very inviting and warm !! Undoubtedly, we'll recommend your services and this trip to our friends.
Overwhelming experience. Stylish boat, discrete piano music, delicious food, punctual itinerary. Absolutely worth the money.
Really lived up to expectations. A very good meal with excellent service.
I visited with my son on Nov20, 2016, the boat is just beautiful, food was delicious and servers 5 star, just amazing! Worth every penny, very nice tour, we will back! Thank you so much for great experience.
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.
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!
It was everything and more than described! The food, service and staff were excellent! Would definitely recommend
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.
amazing tour. The staff are so professional. The ambiance is so relaxing.
The best way to relax and spend quality time time with the family. Excellent five star dinner and services.
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.
Beautiful night. Was pampered from start to finish, food was awesome, worth upgrading to drinks package.
There are so many different tours to choose from, how do you choose?! This was unexpectedly fabulous and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who can't choose on a dinner boat cruise. The food is cooked fresh on board and is first class. We chose the unlimited drinks option, although I personally don't drink that much, but even for just a glass of wine during dinner, it is probably worth it I would say. The staff were fantastic and continuously offered us more drinks, and checked on us throughout our meal. There are so many flashy lit up boats on the river, but this is not one of them - all glass and very chic. We didn't really know what to expect but were not disappointed. And we would definitely book this again if we make it back to Dubai.
Excellent romantic candlelight dinner. The food and service were excellent. Alcoholic drinks are not included. A little bit difficult to find the right boat, we had to ask a few times were to park and which was the right boat.
Booked the Bateaux Dubai dinner cruise for our 30th wedding anniversary, great food, good night out, as we went during the Ramadam period the cruise was very quiet think there were only about another 30 or so people on the cruise - but as a bonus we had great service and not rushed, would certainly do this again - as a tip get the alcohol package as alcoholic drinks are expensive in Dubai
