We booked this trip on our last night in Dubai. We got 15% off the total price with our club carlson card as we stayed in the Radisson Blu hotel. It worked out at the equivalent of £15 per head.

The cruise itself was great, relaxing and good for sightseeing and photographs. It lasted just over 2 hours. The food on the buffet was also very nice. There was a good mix of food which including curries, fish, steaks. The general quality of the food considering it was a buffet was very impressive. Included in the cost were unlimited soft drinks along with the food. We found that the cost of the trip was very good especially when you consider that you get all of the food you can eat and a 2 hour boat trip along the creek.

We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone going to Dubai.

Took this trip as a date with my wife. As we were on the Bur Dubai side, we had to take a abra across. No one know where this boat was docked and everyone recommended to take the abra back to the opposite side and catch a cruise from the other side. Had to call customer service again and ask for a landmark and took a cab there. Even the cab driver was shocked that a cruise departed from this side. Was served with a complimentary jiuce but then it turns expensive. A bottle of water is 20 AED. As soon as the boat departed we were hit with a sand storm. The way the boat was swaying, everyone was rushed from the upper deck to the lower deck as all beverages were covered with sand. Saw another boat almost tip over while trying to take a turn. Police boats were flying everywhere and there was no news that a person from the abra and fallen in. Even when the boat tried to dock, it hit its side so hard that everyone's food and drinks fell down and the musicians instruments started flying everywhere. The only good part of the cruise which we could not enjoy was the food. Worth every penny of it. After the food was done which everyone had in the first hr, bills started coming in. They were so scared that people would walk out that the wait staff were guarding all the exits. Until you paid the bill they would stalk you. Once the rain stopped we again went on the upper deck and saw the destruction. Tables and chairs were everywhere and the mast was broken. Luckily we paid with the entertainer voucher as we barely stayed over an hour on the boat and barely got to enjoy the cruise. Apparently all the boats docked there had some damage and water was everywhere. As the abras were not running, we had to catch a cab home which in itself was a challenge. Had to pay a premium to get a cab to get us home.

The Boat was pretty worn down. In a sense it really looked like the Black Pearl in the Movie Pirates of the Caribbean. We settled in the galley of the ship were the buffet table was set up in the middle of the ship. The buffet was not that great and not bad also. You have your typical fish, pork and chicken. Nothing Special about that also. The entertainment on board shows nothing but pure mediocrity, and when I said Mediocre, it was still an understatement. Mainly because the entertainment we had on board was just a guy in his mid-50's playing a guitar and piano. His not even playing Arabian songs. but some "Im a barbie girl" kind of song, which was really annoying. As for the lounge you can see in my pictures. We tried to get comfy despite it being really dirty and dusty. As if the boat just got out of the Bermuda Triangle or some Old Factory. The whole boat looked so filthy and so dirty that you wouldnt even dare try lying down on their sofas. There was a nice chill spot with low ceilings at the back of the ship on its lower deck. But the problem is its really dirty and god knows how many Arabian Germs or Scabs are there . And did I tell you it was low ceiling? SO you practically have to kneel down and walk that way while entering that area. The Dubai Creek was okay in the night from the boat.

After eating dinner.. we went up and just hanged out STANDING since all the chairs was too dirty to sit in or already occupied. The whole trip was around 2 1/2 hours we arrived back at port around 10pm

All in all

Ambience 7/10
Cleanliness 4/10
Food 7/10
Service 7/10

I don't recommend this cruise if your going to Dubai.. You wouldn't miss anything if you didn't come to this cruise... I promise you that mate

The boat is decent for dinner. The food was marvellous and had good variety although was more of Middle east and Indian style which I felt was perfect for the night. Service was staff was also great. Only drawback was that alchohol was outrageously priced.
