Many Dubai Creek evening cruises are on Arabian-style dhow boats or sailing vessels. This dinner cruise is different, as it’s on a modern, glass-walled boat that allows for unobstructed views of the floodlit buildings you’ll pass by. The 4-course, waiter-served, gourmet dinner is prepared in the onboard kitchen, and beginning August 1, 2018, there’s new live piano accompaniment during your meal. Alcoholic drinks are available for purchase, or you can upgrade to include house wines and beers.

What to Expect

Travel independently to the Bateaux Dubai, docked at the Dubai Creek jetty, and board the glass-walled vessel via a red carpet for your cruise.

Enjoy a welcome drink and canapés, and admire the unobstructed views from the glass-sided cabin and outdoor deck. You’ll pass by Maktoum and Floating Bridges, the floodlit Twin Towers, Deira Tower, Clock Tower, and Dhow Wharfage.

Savor a 4-course gourmet dinner prepared in the onboard kitchen (see Itinerary for sample menus) as you're serenaded by a new live pianist beginning August 1, 2018. Enjoy a selection of complimentary sodas with alcoholic drinks available for purchase, or upgrade when you book to include a package of house wines and beers.

Glide by the Grand Mosque and Old Souk, and enjoy a second opportunity to view the landmarks as your boat returns along the creek.

Your cruise experience finishes when you disembark at the original departure point.

Hi Emily, We pad for the alcohol included package and this was 105AED more than the soft drink package. Hope this helps. Andy
