We took this Dhow Dinner cruise from headout because we want to see Dubai creek and also is cheap. But we know now why is it cheap. We don't really see much nice scenery in Dubai Creek. The entertainment in the cruise consist of tanura dance, magic show and 2 puppet show. The puppet show is a bit weird but the purpose of it to make the guest laugh. The food in this cruise is mainly Indian food although it's said international food. Most of the tourist in this cruise here is Indian tourist. Overall experience for me is not too bad but is not good either so it's ok only for me.

Pathetically organised. Just to make profits , the organiser started bringing in more tables. The buffet dinner was the worst part.it was told that dinner would be called table by table. Suddenly people from most of the table started having buffet without any notice. There was no person to handle it properly. It was like a crowded town bus.clumsy to the core. When we complained, he hardly gave us attention.if you want to throw away your hard earned money, then choose this.

We picked the Sultan pretty much at random as we walked along the waterfront. The boat itself is fine and the staff were friendly. We also were delayed by a group that was late boarding, which was extremely annoying. The buffet was mostly Indian, which I quite liked - it's not fine dining, but it was tasty and filling. The entertainment was strange. The magician was doing tricks that I used to do with my Boy's First Magic Set. The twirly dancer was quite good, but the horse and the giant Spongebob thing were just plain weird. However, we weren't expecting much, so weren't disappointed. What was disappointing was the Creek itself. As you cruise up and down the Creek, all you can see is industrial wasteland and building sites. We may have missed more interesting sites upstream because of our late departure, but I doubt it. So, while the Sultan was not strictly to blame, I found the overall experience poor. Save your money and go to a nice restaurant instead.

When we arrived we though this was going to be a great last night in Dubai but we were SADLY mistaken. Although our cruise had a set departure time we boarded and then sat for nearly an hour past departure time, obviously waiting for a large group who were late. If they have a set departure time other guests should not be made to wait for such a long time due to the lateness of others. It seemed that this large group who finally arrived had not been catered for, as the staff were scrambling to find chairs to seat them. The annoying thing was that although we were made to wait so long for these people they were then called to the buffet first! (Family of the crew perhaps!) As far as I'm concerned this cruise was spoilt by the huge number of young children on board. I have nothing against children except when they fill napkins with food and throw them at other guests! I was hit with quite a force by one of these missiles in full view of their parents. The mother didn't make the young man ( around 13-15 years of age) apologise and neither did the father. Very poor parenting. These children also had disgusting manners when serving themselves at the buffet acting as if there was no one else on board other than themselves. Entertainment was just weird! Terrible musician who played so badly that guests were cringing. Then there was a strange character dressed up who went around slapping the guests with its fake arms. This was followed by a "horse" which basically did the same and just went around head butting guests to music! The magician would have been fine for a children's party but was pathetic as adult entertainment. I wish we had saved our money as the cruise was only around 1 hour by the time the late comers arrived.

We reached at 8 pm with our car took time to find parking approx 15 min , it wasn't planned I went randomly with my friends and at the same time we decided to go for the dhow cruise luckily it was Sunday we found a table for 4 each person paid 150 dhs , I think on weekends price may go bit higher , dates serviced while accessing the gate , welcome drink while choosing the table I choose the upper deck the weather was very good since we are still on March , henna tattoo was there we paid 15dhs for it , optional , photographer was there also chargeable and optional ,the first show was Arabic singer , 2nd was tanoora dance 3rd was a doll dance 4th was magic show 5th was horse show , from 8:40 to 10:36 , international buffet was really good , we was the last table to go to the buffet but even if , the staff was refilling everything and was really fast nothing was missed all food was there , if you was setting near the buffet they will call u first , and if u was the other side you will be watching the show better , so you can make your choice , I chose the show side , it took approx 30 min to all the tables to get there food , it's really good organized , toilets on the dhow was very clean , this one of the best dhow worth it ,
