An average experience

Dhow cruise is one of the attractions for a visitor to the city of Dubai. We reached the boarding point for the Dhow cruise at Deira creek opposite Radisson Blue Hotel at about 8:00 pm. The boarding took place at about 8:30 pm. We chose to sit at the lower deck. The cruise started at 9 pm. It was a hour and twenty minutes duration leisurely cruise over the creek. One gets to enjoy the sights of the city on both sides of the creek. Buffet dinner was served during the cruise which was just okay. Post dinner there were a few enjoyable performances by local artistes. The cruise ended at the boarding point.

A well-managed cruise

There is nothing spectacular about it but if you have experienced Goa cruise, you are gonna like the Dubai cruise. The experience is far better. Just like other things in Dubai, the cruise is well-managed, clean and very good quality wise. We tried to reserve a table on the upper deck but had to settle with a table in lower deck. The difference is that upper deck is open air while the lower one is closed with glasses but it's very well air conditioned. The sitting was fairly comfortable on both decks like in a good restaurant. Once the cruise started to sail, we saw huge buildings lit with beautiful lights and other cruises passing by us highlighted with decorative neon lights. It was like a riot of colors and light in the dark night. The food served in buffet including the desserts were also quite good which I wasn't expecting to be honest. In between we had our share of fresh air on the upper deck. After 1 hour or so, a local artist gave his performance wearing a heavy dress decorated with lights which again was good. Remember, they don't serve liquor on cruise which was a setback for me but the overall feel of the cruise made up for it.

Life line of Dubai

Dubai Creek is a man made creek about 14 Kms in length which divide the Dubai in two part Bur Dubai and Diera. This looks very beautiful at night. All the Creek is beautifully maintained in both the sides. If weather is not very hot you will love to walk along. At night Dhow cruises start from here looks very beautiful. There is public transport available on the Creek to cross one side to another giving you a very beautiful view of Dubai.

Ride on Boat not cruise

This visit is almost included in package by all travel agent. So it was also in our tour. Visited creek in night. There was a tour of almost 1 and 1/2 hour. It was a boat with dining table for almost 100 persons where we have to seat and watch. Base is Air Conditioned while top floor is open. Nice view from top but coll wind is always there which is not suitable for child and senior citizens. Dubai was seeing colorful on both side. There was a nice dinner along with local dance and some other program. Not a bad visit.

Classic Creek Cruise !!!

Cool Cruise!!! Tasty BBQ Dinner!!!There are 2 Dhow cruise in Dubai, 1. Marina Dhow Cruise - which is absolutely Top class in terms of sightseeing as well as BBQ Dinner. 2. Creek Dhow Cruise - which is Ok but compared to Marina it's not up to the mark regarding sightseeing as well as BBQ Dinner, but if we go only to Creek Dhow cruise and not Marina Dhow Cruise we can't find fault with Creek dhow cruise, only when comparing both, Creek cruise is below Marina dhow cruise.We booked all our tours through Happy tourism and we paid AED 125 each for Marina and AED 80 each for Creek, Rikks floating restaurant was allotted and it was absolutely awesome, we took some fabulous photos and videos to cherish.

A good place to relax

The half a day city tour was over and we were dropped back in the hotel. By 4. 00 pm our tour guide took us to the creek where the boat was docked. The boat cruised along the creek and its an awesome sight to see the sky line of Dubai in the twilight on our way to the tip of the sea. The speed of the boat increased as we were nearing the sea. The boat was filled with sound of music, full of fun and dance. We were served with small eats and refreshments with beverages. The cruise was halting at the entrance of the sea for us to have sea view. We were served with a buffet dinner of Indian food, which was very tasty. On the way back to the creek, we had glimpse of an awesome, magnificently lit sky scrappers and the speeding cars of Dubai. We had an unforgettable experience in the Dhow Cruise in the Dubai creek.

Great Night out

We had a Creek Cruise on the show, and it was a beautiful evening well spent, with a nice weather, beautiful music and amazing food. Magic show and Tanura dance for the kids. Alternately there are also water taxis ferrying across the creek for just 1 AED. Totally a unique experience.

Waste of time and money

Very average 3 star cruises on Dubai Creek unless you go for 5 star category. Dinner is generally cold, you get hardly any views till you are inside creek. The same money can be used for better dinner buffets at star hotels.
