It was really great from start to finish. Our driver Babar was great, he explained things to us well and was super friendly! For the cruise we went around Dubai Creek. There was a cool atmosphere and all the staff on board took great care of me. As for the food, I enjoyed it 😜. Thank you for this experience!

The whole experience can be better if support team provided with the correct information if pickup. They told pickup at 8:00pm while actual pickup was 7:00pm due to which I need to rush from my previous experience in a hurry to catch the cruise Overall cruise experience is OK but entertainment can be made better to improve the overall experience

It was an amazing experience with loads of beautiful views and fun tanoura dance and music. The food served had a lot of Indian options and overall a great experience that everyone must try.

Cruisin' by the Dubai Marina

Board an Arabian Dhow and dive right into the charm of Dubai Marina. With a welcome drink in one hand and dates in the other, it's just the quintessential Emirati-style start. Around you, the city lights twinkle, with the Cayan Tower spiraling up into the night sky. Oh, and the soft tunes of Arabic and Hindi music? They're just perfect for setting a magical vibe.

Belly up for a buffet and beats

The buffet's open, ready with dishes from around the world and Asia. Grab a plate, fill it up, and relax. The spread is extensive with Arabic and Russian salads, koftas, kebab, Indian curries, and Asian and continental dishes like noodles, pasta, fish and chips, and more (not to forget the desserts). Later, watch a Tanoura dancer spin in their colorful skirt, a traditional Egyptian dance form that’s just fun to see. It's all the little things that make this cruise feel special.
