Luxurious cruise by the Dubai Water Canal

Your dhow dinner cruise will begin in Dubai Festival City as you report at the designated pier on the new Dubai Water Canal. You will be greeted by the friendly staff who welcome you with Kahwah (Arabic coffee) and assorted chilled refreshments on your arrival. After the warm welcome, you will board the luxurious glass-enclosed dhow and embark on your dinner cruise down the New Dubai Water Canal.

On your way, you will be able to view the dazzling IMAGINE fountain show. You will also get to pass by landmarks such as the Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, historic dhow building yards, and the Ras Al Khor bird sanctuary. See the glitzy, avant-garde Dubai Design District, the center of the current downtown Dubai. Admire the stunning Burj Khalifa - the world’s tallest tower, and check out the central business district – Business Bay, a stellar destination. Marvel at the architecture of luxury hotels such as Al Habtoor City and JW Marriott Marquis. Finally, hit up the strikingly lit Dubai Water Canal Bridge, and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience of gliding under it.

The accompanying dinner will be in the form of a lavish international buffet with food stations for Arabic appetizers, grilled meats, fresh salads, delicious Arabic sweets, and soft & hot beverages. The dhow cruise will finally return to its pier after a 2-hour journey cruise.
