Whilst the organization for getting to and from the boat was good, we were disappointed when we believed that we were going to get a 5 star buffet. Not so. The food was OK, but not high quality. The scenery by night was average, and the 2 hours was plentiful. The dancing performance was a surprise and lifted the nighttime experience. Probably would not do it again is we returned.

This is not the cruise you want to book if you are looking for a relaxing time. The car was picking up so many other people that we were driving around a busy Dubai with poor air con for over 1.5 hours. We made it to the Cruise just in time. During the cruise, I had to ask the waiters 3 times for iced water and its only after I became very assertive with my voice that they responded. The tables and chairs were really squashed together and yet again the air condition was poor. Food was very basic and not tasteful. Went to top deck and the front part of the boat has the hot air being blown out from the air con. By the time the show started on top deck, people just wanted to get back. I would not recommend anyone using this service.

This was a lovely evening. The creek is much bigger than I expected so it was like going up the Thames, but lovely for an evening with all the light. The food was great and there was plenty of it. Would highly recommend this, very good value for money.

Was nice to travel along the creek at night and see all the lights of Dubai and the all other boats. The service was very good but we were disappointed with the meal.

Organisation of booking and payment excellent. Transfers from hotel worked well. Warm welcome on boat, lovely food and atmosphere, a lovely way to start our brief visit to Dubai. Thank you.

Terrible, unsafe aggressive driver a road rage incident waiting to happen. He messed up an otherwise enjoyable dinner and evening. It was a scary ride to/from the ship. Complained to the tour organizer when we got back to the hotel. Don't pay for this service, you take your life in your hands. Good food, interesting dancing performance afterward.

The cruise is as advertised. The staff and entertainment were very good. If you are looking for a 5 star meal look elsewhere. The food is OK but not gourmet. The upper deck is only for viewing. all meals and entertainment are on the main enclosed deck. Pick-up was on time.

This was a great way to see many of the Dubai buildings at night while having a good dinner. The food was plentiful not amazing but very good and the boat was very comfortable. We were seated on the main floor of the boat indoors which was cold-AC, so bring a wrap. If you can when reserving ask for window seats. We were a group of 6 so this might not be possible as the other groups were seated in the center too so you'd have to lean over others to see the city views. The top deck is open air and very nice. I'd have preferred to be up there but almost everyone there was a smoker. The wait staff were very friendly. I was not aware that they would have a traditional dancer on the boat but it was a fun and pleasant surprise!
