We spent our first evening in Abu Dhabi eating our evening meal while sailing along  the marina and taking in the Dubai Jumeirah.  The cruise was part of our package so good value for money. It lasted two hours and the scenery, good company, food and relaxed atmosphere, made it an enjoyable evening. The boat was authentically decorated with tables... More

There are many Dhow dinner cruises on offer, but ours was included in our tour package so I don't know the exact name of it. It was an interesting experience but I am not one for buffet dinners because, apart from the lines, the end product is usually cold.

We booked this cruise with not terribly high expectations however we were pleasantly surprised. We were collected at our hotel in a very comfortable car with a very pleasant and knowledgeable driver. The cruise was somewhat delayed awaiting the arrival of a coach party. The food was very good we were seated on the lower deck but after the meal... More

We were under the impression that this cruise did not have a group on board and when we turned up there was a big group which took away the atmosphere. It was a big buffet but you had to queue for so long to get any food and it was a bit of a free for all. Definitely over rated.

It is just like any other cruise. The boats are well decorated and serve dinner too. There is a dance performance too. One has air conditioned lower level and an open deck. Use the air conditioned area if cold outside. The duration is 2 h which is slightly more. An hour or so should be good enough.

We sat downstairs without realising there were tables on the open top deck. The cold food was delicious but sadly the hot food was cold. There seemed to be no way to keep it hot. Soft drinks were included with the package and the wine was very expensive. We stood outside at the back of the top deck after dinner... More

I went with my wife and there was a 30 min delay; so the whole trip was 1 hr 30 min and not 2 hours as advertised. On top of that, they offer you wine without telling you its an extra 40 dhs per glass. The trip itself is nice but you better make sure you board the boat the... More

This was fun. Nice, easy cruise along the Corniche with a traditional Emirati buffet dinner along the way. We had a nice time, met some lovely people, enjoyed the view, and had a good meal. Hard to beat for the price. Highly recommend this!

There are a number of offers for a Dow Dinner Cruise in Abu Dhabi, and their different prices reflect fairly the very different quality. The best one is that one leaving in front of the Marina Mall, as it includes an excellent buffet, instead of a set menu' as others. Also, the path for the cruise is just THE best... More
