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.

We went on this tour in Dubai. The journey was nice and relaxing and one of the puddings was nice but overall the food was average - not what you would expect for the price. If you are relaxed about pick up times you'll be OK but we were told pick up time was 7:00pm and we didn't get picked... More

We were told to be there 15 minutes before 730. And we were. But the cruise didn't start until 830! We didn't know if it was because they were still waiting for other passengers or our guide just told us the time they allowed guests to board the ship. A few minutes after the cruise started, a lousy magician started... More
