Great for pictures
emmalouiseking, Sept 2023
Great for pictures But the whole experience was a bit of a let down. Travel to and from meeting point was perfect and on time. Arrival on boat was lovely was served starters while we waited for remaining guests but drinks didn’t start until we were about to sail. Never came around with drinks again we had to keep asking for additional drinks, service let them down here and there were plenty of staff. Food was okay but a few dishes on the bone so would have been better with alternatives. There was fresh pasta cooked though so that was good. No guided tour or sights pointed out so we took a lot of pics but we weren’t really sure what was what and could have missed things.
Pleasant , low action cruise .
Susan_G, Sept 2023
Attentitive staff. Good food. Pleasant cruise , would have been better to me if they had a commentary though. There was minimal communication re what buildings we were seeing . A map on board on where we were going also would gave been helpful. The bridge fountain was not going , so was disappointed, and even then we were not told about it, until I asked . Better if you were in a group or couple . Low impact activity. Restful and relaxing. Not for those that like action. Nice saxophone background music , but no dancing on our cruise
Canal evening cruise.

Yvette_P, Sept 2023
Excellent Food and Live Entertainment while experiencing some beautiful sights! The Waiters were attentive and friendly too! The air conditioning was just right !! The Red Carpet entrance was a great way to start the evening after taking memorable pictures with my friends!
First class cruise

Very professionally run with very polite and attentive staff. Boat was very clean and food was very good. I would highly recommend this cruise
Beautiful views for a great evening experience in duvai
ellen_d, Sept 2023
We loved seeing Dubai at night from the water. The views were beautiful especially the fountains. U should not advertise the waterfalls since they have not been working since before Covid
Good food but lack of tour content
Mark_B, Sept 2023
What’s good: Food was very good, nice selection and good quality. Boat was clean and great viewing form lower deck if it’s hot and you need air con. All staff were very good and lots of them if you needed anything. Not so good: The tour content. Basically a tour of downtown Dubai buildings. We wanted to see the waterfall bridge and while it was on the list of sights we didn’t see it.
It was a wonderful...
Philomena_O, Sept 2023
It was a wonderful experience having dinner on the cruise, great scenery and great music. The food was fantastic, the staff was beyond exceptional; when we were running late due to traffic, they called us constantly to check on our location until we made it. They would be been well within their rights to leave us behind but they didn't. They welcomed us as soon as we got on board. I can't recommend them enough. Truly A+ experience with A+ staff. Thank you!!
Be enthralled with the sights….
Tamara_S, Sept 2023
Lovely food; lovely staff; and beautiful scenery of Dubai sights. Recommend this cruise as the atmosphere was so lovely, staff and all.
Ruthie_S, Aug 2023
No one said anything once we were on the “ luxury”?? Boat. No mention of where we were all night. No safety briefing… life jackets? etc. Buffet meal .. very mediocre. We paid for luxury package with alcohol, but couldn’t drink it. Their only choices were house white, red or beer. ( we drink vodka). Driver each way said not one word. A strange, very unluxurious experience for $ NZ 420. For 2 pax.
A decent experience
Joseph_P, Aug 2023
Pros - lovely views, good length of trip, good organisation Cons - food wasn’t good at all, wasn’t cheap and staff trying to upsell too much
shamil_g, Aug 2023
The most memorable part of the trip was supposed to be the waterfall from bridge. But that apparently was not in service. False Advertising by Viator! I would like a refund
Dubai dinner cruise
Christine_Q, Aug 2023
This was a very nice cruise. It is beautiful at night seeing all of the buildings lit up. The food was ok. I have very picky eaters in my group, but they did have a nice selection of things to choose from. The did have a pasta station which was perfect for my group. The only thing I thought was that it was a little long. It got a little boring at then end and we wished that it would have ended about 30 minutes earlier.
Brilliant evening
Philip_E, Aug 2023
Thoroughly enjoyable evening from start to finish, friendly knowledgeable staff and excellent food . Would recommend.
Pleasantly thrilled
Terry_K, June 2023
Not knowing what to expect, we were really pleased! We had a reserved table and were not rushing around trying to pick a table. We had bought the drinks package which turned out to be all you can drink from their set menu - white wine, red wine,& beer. There were a couple of choices of each & they weren’t bad. Then came a multiple choice for how we wanted our custom pasta - which noodle, sauce, & other ingredients. Then a buffet which was good. The boat was lovely with big windows, set tables with white tablecloths and plenty of service people. All quite nice. Then of course the cruise from Dubai City Mall through downtown and all the way south to the Dubai Marina area. The lights were spectacular!! We were so glad we did this. We did Not so the “pickup” option but were not clear where the departure point was. The ticket info gave coordinates so we weren’t really clear where the specific dock was. It turned out that we had Ben sent a WhatsApp message with clear details but I did not see that until after the tour. This info should have been on the actual ticket.
Beautiful experience
Theres_k, May 2023
I enjoyed the dinner, the customer service was excellent, I enjoyed the deck view and the ride. If you want a small family dinner, this is good. There is other ship with live party going on, but if you want a small beautiful dinner. This is it
