Went with Rayna tour operator for dinner cruise around the Creek. Pleasant way to spend an evening via a cruise and dinner but nothing special and no particular views from river but interesting to see the variety of other boats, and interesting to see the huge amount of unfinished construction further along the Creek

It had been 20 years since I last visited Dubai and a lot has changed but one of my favorite memories was the dinner and show we had at the hotel. Well apparently they don't do those anymore so I took the next best thing; Dubai: Deira Creek 5-Star Buffet Dinner Dhow Cruise. I booked online before getting to Dubai as I found out there are many of these that sail nightly but I think I had one of best on the creek. Very nice ship and the staff was excellent. The dinner was enough for me and very nicely arranged. We sailed down creek and back when the show started. It was nice but not as good as I had 20 years ago, but that is life and things change. I had a very pleasant evening and would recommend this Dhow cruise to anyone for a most enjoyable evening.

We had paid for collection and they failed to realise the hotel had changed names and therefore it cost us 100 AED to make it to the boat. The food was all Indian and some Chinese noodles, it was truly disgusting and then wanted to charge 300 AED for a bottle of Jacobs Creek wine! The show was pathetic , one guy twirling in a dress and then a bit later came out dressed as a horse! They then took us back to the hotel via 2 other drop offs which resulted in the journey of 1 hour 40 minutes. Such a waste of money and where the hell do they get a 5 star rating from! I won’t go into the toilet situation as it will make people ill

The tour was organized by Dubai tours. I had to postpone my visit to Dubai and informed the tour company 48 hours before. They agreed to change the date.

On the day of the cruise, 20th May, I had a WhatsApp message that the pick up time would be 4.15pm. Subsequently they had called the hotel to inform them that the pick up time was 4.30 pm. We were in the lobby of the Holiday Inn Bur Dubai on time. However the vehicle did not arrive till 5.30pm. The booking stated that the cruise was a 5 star buffet and departure was 8pm. I called the contact at Dubai tours and he kept saying the driver was on the way.then he stopped answering his phone, by my 3rd call.

The driver turned up at 5.30 and was not apologetic as he said that he told Dubai tours my pick up was 5.30pm and was the last on the route. He dropped us off at the quay. Did not announce which boat we were supposed to take or what time he would pick us up. He only told 2 people in front, which boat it was. There was nobody from Dubai tours present on the bus.

We had to make inquiries and stand outside till 6.15pm till the dhow was ready. I called Dubai tours and only then did they tell me the name of the boat.

The cruise started at 6.45 pm, not 8 pm as in the TripAdvisor ad. There was zero entertainment. The dhow was very old and poorly maintained inside. The food was passable, but there was absolutely nothing 5 star about it.

There was nobody from Dubai tours to explain anything about the shows, Dubai creek or anything else.

This tour group should be blacklisted on Viator, for pathetic service and not delivering what was promised on Viator. It is a poor reflection on Trip Advisor and Viator that such a rip off was permitted. The cruise was very badly organized and it was not worth the money paid. Compared to other tours also booked through Viator with Orient tours LLC and JTR tours which were excellent, this was terrible.

VIATOR, PLEASE BLACKLIST THIS

CRUISE BY DUBAI TOURS.

A partial refund should be made for two pax.

This was the biggest mis-sell I've ever had. The cruise looks nothing like the pictures. The boat was dirty and shabby, there were not even any tables or lighting available on the top deck - it just looked like an empty hall with groups of dirty looking men in unfriendly groups hanging about. These other dinners were what looked like off-shift taxi drivers in joggers and t-shirts that hadn't eaten for a week who gathered round the buffet ALL night like locusts. The staff were nice enough, but the whole thing was a MASSIVE disappointment after looking at the pics and reading the reviews - we suspect the reviews are fake as this isn't even 2 star let alone 5!!! We had an amazing time in Dubai, but this trip was a disaster and there were no "views" to look at either other than a few buildings at the start - the rest was a petrol station and industrial unlit buildings - what a waste of money. REALLY disappointed - have emailed company for a refund as a complete WASTE of money.

The evening started badly and deteriorated sharply. The driver arrived 1 hour and 15 minutes late, which resulted in the boat leaving 30 minutes later than advertised.

The trip was billed as 5 star, with an international buffet. As soon we arrived at the pier I became concerned. We booked to travel on a wooden Dow. This was not a Dow, it was a completely different boat with worn carpets, dirty tablecloths and rickety furniture. The food was far from international cuisine. The only international dish was plain pasta. The "curry" tasted as though a whole packet of sugar had been poured into a pot to obscure the taste of the questionable stew and was Luke warm. The staff looked disinterested and packed up all around us before we had reached the shore. Apparently there was the option to wear lifejackets, but who knows where they located and there was no briefing or advice given.

To summarise the driver was late, rude and dismissive. The staff were totally disengaged and provided no explanation either before, during or after the cruise. This is NOT a 5 star experience. All fellow  passengers looked as eager to get off the boat as I was. The description of the trip is very misleading and not what you expect for a quality destination like Dubai.

The dhow was run down. First of all it is a two story dhow that looks nothing like the advertising picture. The food was terrible, barely a 2 star quality and service little above this.
Our table cloth had food spillages on it and cutlery filthy.
They also advertise traditional dancing and singing. There was one traditional dance and NO singing. Instead there was unbearably loud music that was a mix of Indian music and hip hop/Reggaeton.
In the beginning of the dinner there was also a lady coming around doing henna for an additional 25dirhams, which seemed reasonable. Unfortunately the Henna paste used caused my hand to severely blister - I would not recommend.
The only reason I chose this dinner cruise was due to previous reviews being good, these were certainly not accurate at all.
