We were offered this as an alternative to the excursion that we wanted to book. We were due to be collected from our hotel at 7:45 PM they rang us at 6:40 PM to say that they were now picking us up at 7 PM. When they hadn't arrived by 7:30 PM we rang and they were told that the... More

The cruise along the corniche was relaxing and enjoyable. The food on the other hand landed us in bed the entire next day causing us to cancle plans due to the food poisoning we got from it. The roach on the desert should have been an obvious warning which we did not heed and paid the price. If you wanted... More

There are many cruises and the one we went to the dinner was the only thing on the cruise. They could include options for entertainment. The spread was elaborate and may be a bit too much. Drinks can be purchased on the cruise. Overall an ok experience and could do better .

Opportunity to sail down the Corniche and enjoy the shoreline of Abu Dhabi Corniche, on a Dhow boat. Lovely food served and good scenery.

The experience on this cruise was average ... Not so great. They don't have much too offer. The view around is good. Food for vegetarians is average. Not worth spending so much !! There are better things to enjoy at Dubai!!

I enjoyed the Dhow Cruise in the late afternoon as it was included on my tour list. It only last for an hour but it was a nice experience. Foods are available on purchase and drinks as well. Better to choose a nice Cruise for a better experience but simple cruise can do if you just want to see the... More

After reading all the other reviews we didn't expect much. We were picked up on time and the cruise started without too much delay. Our meal was very nice and plenty of it. The drinks were a good selection and the service excellent. We spent nearly an hour on the top deck with the other guests after the meal and... More

I have to say we were excited about the cruise. However just few hours before the departure I luckily checked the e-mail to find out the cruise was canceled. It ruined our plans for the evening. So if you dont want to be dissapointed, rather book something more reliable.

Cruise was only 8:45-1015. Badly organized. Bad service. For 4 people we got 1 small bottle of water, had to ask twice for more. Had to bring food from deck below up--on a moving boat. Food was just ok. Those who sat at front of boat had to be moved while still eating to make room for Tanura dance. Music... More

I actually liked it. We sat with our group ..the food was delicious. But my only complaint was they didn't play any music.. so it was kinda boring in the end.
