“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

After reading all the other reviews we didn't expect much. We were picked up on time and the cruise started without too much delay. Our meal was very nice and plenty of it. The drinks were a good selection and the service excellent. We spent nearly an hour on the top deck with the other guests after the meal and took photos of Abu Dhabi.
To sum it up our impression was very favourable.
I would definitely recommend it to couples and families for a relaxing night out.

“Complaint”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

I have to say we were excited about the cruise. However just few hours before the departure I luckily checked the e-mail to find out the cruise was canceled. It ruined our plans for the evening. So if you dont want to be dissapointed, rather book something more reliable.

“Waste of time!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Cruise was only 8:45-1015. Badly organized. Bad service. For 4 people we got 1 small bottle of water, had to ask twice for more. Had to bring food from deck below up--on a moving boat. Food was just ok. Those who sat at front of boat had to be moved while still eating to make room for Tanura dance. Music blasting last 45 mins, couldn't have conversation. Only cruised within 10 block area of The Creek, round and round and round. Boring!

“Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

I actually liked it. We sat with our group ..the food was delicious. But my only complaint was they didn't play any music.. so it was kinda boring in the end.

“Food not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

We went on this tour in Dubai. The journey was nice and relaxing and one of the puddings was nice but overall the food was average - not what you would expect for the price.

If you are relaxed about pick up times you'll be OK but we were told pick up time was 7:00pm and we didn't get picked up until 7:45pm. We ended up calling the company to ensure we hadn't missed the lift as we were a little worried after they were over 15 minutes late for pick up. Wasn't really an issue for us but be warned you need to be patient!
