Make an evening in Dubai extra special with a 2-hour Dubai Creek dinner cruise on the world's largest ‘dhow’— a traditional Arabian boat. Step aboard the beautifully illuminated Rustar floating restaurant, and admire Deira’s sparkling landmarks over a sumptuous dinner buffet. Settle on the outer deck or in the elegant cabins, and savor international and Emirati dishes prepared by the 5-star Movenpick hotel as you pass the floodlit Rolex Towers, souks and other landmarks. As you dine, enjoy an array of entertainment, including traditional Emirati dance shows and live music.
What to Expect
Begin your evening with hotel pickup from your Dubai hotel. The boarding starts between 8pm-8:30pm with the cruise departure scheduled at 9pm.

Experience a warm welcome with drinks from the onboard staff. As your cruise leaves the dock, the buffet will be ready with live music in the background. See the glittery area of Deira, passing sites such as the National Bank of Dubai, Sheraton Dubai Creek, Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Rolex Towers, the traditional souks in Bur Dubai, and more.

Tanoura and Emirati youwla dancers will provide live entertainment on board, and a cash bar is available to order additional drinks. There will also be a henna painter if you're in the mood for a decorative tattoo.

After two hours of entertainment, dining, and sightseeing, you will be dropped off back at your hotel when selecting the options with transfers. Upgrade your ticket to include private pickup and drop-off.

Nice Evening

The night was really nice. Spent almost 2 hours dining on delicious food and the odd beverage. Cruise was really calm and the Dhow was really nice and exceptionally clean. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Views along the way were amazing.

She probably would enjoy. It’s not fine dining thought. It’s a nice hot & cold buffet but wasn’t exceptional. Not sure what you mean about hooks?
