what to expect

Walk along the enchanting pontoon and board the plush, glass-enclosed Bateaux Dubai. As your boat casts off, enjoy a welcome drink and canapés and spend the evening cruising back and forth along Dubai Creek.
Settle on the glass-covered deck, head for the open roof terrace, or get to the outdoor deck for unparalleled views of the city’s twinkling skyline. Enjoy the evening breeze as you cruise under the glittering Maktoum and Floating bridges, and pass the Clock Tower and Dhow Wharfage, Twin Towers and Deira Tower. Then, drift by the Old Souk, Grand Mosque and Old Boat Port before your vessel heads back, giving you a second chance to photograph the city’s dazzling landmarks.
As you sail, sit down to a delicious, 4-course dinner of freshly prepared, gourmet dishes. A wait staff tends to you as you admire the ever-changing backdrop from the boat's wraparound windows. You have the choice of two drink packages with your cruise: a standard selection of sodas or an upgrade that includes house wines.
During your meal, listen to soft piano music played by an expert pianist — the gentle melodies add a romantic touch to your evening. Then, after dinner, perhaps relax with your drinks on the outdoor terraces to make the most of the last, stunning views as you return to dock.
Your experience ends when your boat arrives back at the port at around 11pm.
