I was not very excited going in the cruise but the weather and the two hours cruise was very nice. Fresh Air, beautiful environment, good music made it memorable. The only sore point is that dinner is not upto the mark - Oily food and one has to be careful. Overall a must place to experience when in Dubai

Not a bad way of seeing the city but for the same price you could drive up and down the Corniche in a taxi 50 times! The trip does not travel very far at all, just very slowly. They advertise 5* food. I really don't think so! Incredibly poor food and service, they service Pepsi or Lemonade as a choice... More

We went on an afternoon one hour cruise which just took us around a part of the Corniche. It was pleasant and we sat upstairs and enjoyed a nice breeze. There is not a lot to see, only the city outline. I am sure the night cruise would have been more interesting. The down stairs area is air conditioned and... More

I really didn't enjoy this. We sat around on the deck for about an hour before the cruise departed. There were far too many children on board - running up and down and stomping and making a noise. I love children but they really should behave on an outing like that. I thought it would be more of an adult/couple... More

It really is every bit worth it! The dinner is very good indeed with a nice choice of dishes. The service is friendly, professional and excellent (I think the one we were in was catered by Marriott), but the main thing is the absolutely amazing views of Dubai Marina by night. The lighting is so cleverly done on most buildings.... More

Facts....it is all after dark so sighting seeing is limited , no safety briefing given, very little to no interaction by staff, no commentary at all, smoking is permitted on the entire top deck which was not pleasant, selection of food good but not 5 star as advertised, restaurant lighting too bright so you could not see outside while seated,...
