Dubai Dhow Cruise Photo & Video Guide
Dubai Creek Dhow Cruise & Dinner is one of the best ways to discover the night city. You will make a journey on the traditional wooden boat, try a delicious international buffet dinner and enjoy the excellent entertainment program. I also experienced this adventure myself to share with you real photos and video of the Dubai Dhow Cruise.
There are 2 types of Dhow Boat cruises in Dubai. One of them starts in Dubai Marina and rides along the Marina coast. The other one is going from the famous port area of Dubai called Deira and the boat is going along the Dubai Creek. I chose a tour that starts from the Dubai Creek.
On the ship there are two decks - the lower deck and the upper one. The top deck is perfect for a cruise in the winter when it is not too hot in Dubai. The lower deck is air conditioned what is great for summer tours.
So, the tour begins and you get on board a traditional wooden ship. Here you will be greeted with a welcome drink - traditional Arabic coffee.
After that, the waiters will start serving drinks. These are mainly juices and water, but you can also order alcoholic beverages for a fee. You can also start to try cold dishes, snacks and salads. Dinner is held in the form of self-service, so everyone puts in his plate the food that he wants.
The tables are served in such a way that you feel yourself travelling on a real floating restaurant.
As you can see, the menu is quite diverse. There are traditional Arabic dishes, as well as European ones and also some food that is suitable for children.
Since I am a vegetarian, it was a pleasure to find a variety of vegetables and other plant-based meals.
By the way, the waiters were always nearby bringing new dishes, so the plates were full all the time.
Dinner is going on in a friendly and festive atmosphere. There is a good music playing and you can enjoy the beautiful views of night Dubai Creek just from your table.
An international dinner involves a wide variety of meals. After eating you can taste fruits, desserts and order a cup of coffee.
All food is prepared according to the highest international quality standards by Carlton Palace Hotel.

The dinner ends with an interesting entertainment program. During the Dhow Cruise you can see one of the best Tanoura dance shows in Dubai. Beautiful costumes and charismatic artists will surely make your evening.
All the guests of the ship were very glad and had a great time on board. I also had a lot of fun and I recommend you not to miss the opportunity to travel on this traditional wooden ship, once you are in Dubai.
