Why You Should Go For A Dinner Cruise in Dubai Creek
A dinner cruise of Dubai in Deira Creek (or the Dubai Creek) is a very popular Dubai pastime. Sailing down the city’s ancient lifeline, the Deira Creek is a unique experience that not only introduces you to the luxury that Dubai stands for, but also brings you closer to the history of Dubai, a city that sprung up and grew around the Deira Creek. Several dhow cruises, or bateaux cruises as they’re called, will take you on a luxurious cruise down the creek and while you feast on a wonderful dinner, also show you the older part of the city in an intimate manner.
The dhows of today have come a long way from the days of yore when they used to be small boats with a sail. Dhows have evolved into modern cruise vessels that can comfortably house a world-class restaurant and take you around the Dubai Creek and the Dubai harbour. With facilities such as indoor-outdoor seating and 360-degree glass walls, dhow cruises are one of the most popular recreational experiences in Dubai. Famous for hosting lavish dining and entertainment experiences, a dhow cruise in the Dubai Creek is a must on your visit to Dubai.
Please note: On account of Prophet Mohammed's Birthday, there will be no entertainment shows and alcohol served at the Safari between 30th November - 1st December.
What to Expect on Your Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise
Your dhow dinner cruise will begin in Deira as you report at the designated pier on the Dubai Creek. You will be greeted by the friendly cruise staff who welcome you with fresh juices, Arabian coffee, and dates on your arrival. Post the welcome, you will board the luxurious wooden dhow and embark on a lavish as well as an entertaining journey down the Dubai Creek.
The dhow features both an outdoor deck as well as an indoor air-conditioned seating facility. As the cruise departs at 8:30 pm, you will be able to enjoy the sights of Dubai as it is lit up beautifully at night. The dinner is in the form of an international buffet with a wide range of dishes from around the world. From lip-smacking Indian food to tasty Italian preparations and Arabic delicacies, the dinner features delicious food that will go perfectly with your cruising experience.
As you enjoy your dinner, traditional dance and magic shows will also be put up for your entertainment. There will be a magic show, a tanoura dance, a horse show and a Homos (puppet) dance show. These shows are interactive, entertaining as well as humorous. The dhow cruise will finally return to its pier after a 2-hour journey at 10:30 pm.
