Aboard the Dubai Marina Dhow Cruise

What can you expect at Dubai Marina dinner cruise
in the traditional dhow?

What do you think are the best ways to spend a night in Dubai if you are a tourist? Do you want to enjoy the night views of the city while having a gourmet dinner with a loved one?

Whether you are a resident of Dubai or just visiting, you will not be disappointed spending a few hours in a dinner cruise in the marina. The Dubai Marina is the second largest artificial harbor and canal city in the world. Its 3-kilometer stretch is the location of posh residential buildings, luxurious hotels, and high-end commercial establishments.

Dubai Marina at nighttime
Dubai Marina is a posh stretch in Dubai city, home to high-end commercial buildings,
luxurious hotels, and the main waterway in the city, home to dhow cruises.

If you want to appreciate the architecture and engineering marvels of Dubai, you can go on a cruise during the daytime. However, if you want to marvel at the spectacle of lights of the marina, you should go on a cruise at night.

You will have a chance spending leisure time with loved ones and friends if you go on a night cruise. Here, you can enjoy sumptuous meals aboard a traditionally themed dhow cruise in Dubai Marina.

What to expect

Most of the dhow cruises in the Dubai Marina offer similar services but the menus may vary. Generally, you can expect the following in most of the cruises:

  • Buffet dinner
  • Vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes
  • Continental and exotic food
  • Unlimited soft drinks
  • Unlimited coffee and tea
  • Juice drinks
  • Pasta station

Some cruises offer live entertainment such as musical presentations and dance performances. The main attractions, however, are the landmarks and buildings that are all brightly-lit in the evening.

Dubai Marina Dinner Cruise

So, who will you be taking to the 5-star Dubai Marina dinner cruise in a traditional dhow, or Arab sailing vessel?

1. Have a date with your partner

Dinner is always an opportunity for couples to spend a romantic evening together. However, instead of a typical dinner in a restaurant, why not have a dinner cruise? Being aboard the Dubai Marina dhow cruise is one of the best ways to appreciate Dubai from a different vantage point together with your significant other.

The floodlit landmarks such as the Grand Mosque are a perfect contrast to the dark night sky and sparkling sea.

Feel the gentle breeze as it touches your skin. Hold hands with your partner as you gaze at the views from the top deck. Even if you have resided in the city for quite a while, spending a romantic date in a pleasure cruise will always be a refreshing change.

2. Celebrate your parents’ wedding anniversary

Will your parents be celebrating their silver wedding anniversary this year? Why not treat them to a cruise in Dubai Marina? If you can afford it, why not rent an entire dhow for an hour or so, or have it exclusively for the night.

Your parents will surely be thrilled to spend dinner time with the entire family. If you have many siblings who have families of their own, it will definitely be a big party to remember. You may bring your own food or hire a food caterer. You may also bring your own entertainment, or you can choose to hire in-house entertainers.

3. Treat your visiting friends

If you are an expat residing in Dubai and your friends from abroad are paying you a visit, treat them on a cruise in the Dubai Marina. It’s one interesting and unique way of introducing them to the magnificence of the city. They will surely be impressed and may even consider living in Dubai.

4. Have a night’s out with your co-workers

If you are having a company celebration for a newly-closed deal, you may celebrate on a cruise in the Dubai Marina. Just be sure to make reservations early to have the best seats. If you are the boss, you can treat your employees for the night.

The cruise would be a little more special if it’s the first time that your team members are going out together, and it would help strengthen the cohesiveness of your group. Why spend a fortune on expensive team-building activities if you can just opt for a tasteful and relaxing dinner cruise?

Create a lasting impression

Whoever you take for a cruise in Dubai Marina, you should try to create a positive and lasting impression. The ambience and delicious food will certainly help set the mood.

Whether the cruise is for deepening personal relationships or cementing professional ones, a night in Dubai Marina will provide the opportunity to delightfully strengthen those bonds.
