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

We were sold this Marina based dinner cruise by our Kuoni hotel rep and she negotiated a reduced price for us as it was sailing that night, we were walking to the marina start point and there were a few vacancies. Try for 230 price? We were staying on a stop over at a beach hotel and walked to the... More

Delicious food and great service. Make sure to bring a jacket as it gets windy on the water. Nice to see the buildings it up at night.It is buffet style so you can decided which dishes and how much you want.

This tour was great and all my kids enjoyed it to the fullest. My Abu Dhabi Holidays recommended this tour for us and around 7 pm a driver came to pick us to our hotel lobby. We boarded into the Wooden dhow boat with the red carpet welcome which was anchored opposite to Marina Mall Abu Dhabi. Great view of... More
