We've been visiting Dubai now for the past 8 years on and off and can't believe we've never tried this before! Booked the cruise as we were staying at the Jebel Ali for my Fathers 60th Birthday, only once we arrived in the resort did we realise the cruise is run by the JA group and a discount is offered...

We really enjoyed the whole experience. The dinner menu was larger than expected and it was hard to narrow down the starter, main course and dessert choice for each of us. Everything was delicious and the ambiance was fantastic!

My husband and I spent several hours to select a place in Dubai to celebrate our wedding and do not regret our final choice any single bit. We made a reservation through the website (no advance payment neccesary) and indicated that I have allergy on dairy products. When we arrived our reservation was found without any trouble, we were seated... More

Had a wonderfully romantic evening on the bateaux dubai. Food is excellent and plenty of choice. The presentation is exquisite. The pianist was excellent and really added to the ambience. One small disappointment was the drinks selection available in our package. It would have been nice to have the option of a cocktail as I don't drink wine. I was... More

Each course is perfectly timed from when you leave the dock to when you return. Great dining and ambience. Cruising the creek at night with lights from other dhows and buildings on waterfront creates a magical scene. Glass ceilings and windows allows you to see it all without having to go out on deck especially if in warm season. The... More
