Revel in the sights of nighttime Dubai on this memorable dinner cruise on the glass-enclosed ‘Bateaux Dubai!’ Enjoy a welcome drink and canapés and gaze through the boat’s wraparound windows as you cruise along glittering Dubai Creek to key attractions such as the Al Maktoum Bridge, Twin Towers and Grand Mosque, all illuminated against the night sky. Then, savor a delicious 3-course meal served at your table as a pianist plays in the background. Sip on a selection of sodas or house wines, depending on which option you select.


  • See the sights illuminated at night
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Free drinks included
  • A la carte dinner included
Walk along the red carpet and board the plush, glass-enclosed Bateaux Dubai. As your boat casts off, enjoy a welcome drink and canapés and spend the evening cruising back and forth along Dubai Creek.
Settle on the glass-covered deck, head for the open roof terrace, or get to the outdoor deck for unparalleled views of the city’s twinkling skyline. Enjoy the evening breeze as you cruise under the glittering Maktoum and Floating bridges, and pass the Clock Tower and Dhow Wharfage, Twin Towers and Deira Tower. Then, drift by the Old Souk, Grand Mosque and Old Boat Port before your vessel heads back, giving you a second chance to photograph the city’s dazzling landmarks.
As you sail, sit down to a delicious, 3-course dinner of freshly prepared, gourmet dishes. A wait staff tends to you as you admire the ever-changing backdrop from the boat's wraparound windows. You have the choice of two drink packages with your cruise: a standard selection of sodas or an upgrade that includes house wines.
During your meal, listen to soft piano music played by an expert pianist — the gentle melodies add a romantic touch to your evening. Then, after dinner, perhaps relax with your drinks on the outdoor terraces to make the most of the last, stunning views as you return to dock.
Your experience ends when your boat arrives back at the port at around 11pm.

Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Christopher M, United Kingdom, January 2017

From the moment we stepped on board we had the most amazing experience. We booked for four people two on the all inclusive alcohol drinks and two all inclusive soft drinks and this worked perfectly. We were made to feel really special and both the service and food was amazing and far exceeded our expectations. At the end of the meal the chef came out to enquire as to whether we had enjoyed our meal which we thought was a nice touch. As you sailed in the Dubai Creek there was not too much to see but it was more about the dining experience rather than the sights. Our age group was from 53-63 and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Be aware that if you are staying in a hotel on the palm in Dubai it could take you over an hour to get there by taxi due to traffic being busy as there is no pick up when booking this trip through Viator. We used a private taxi and it cost us 110 dirhams each way so you need to bear this in mind. The food served was simply top notch and consisted of canapes served at your table, amuse bouche, starters, main meal, dessert and tea or coffee. Should we visit Dubai again would not hesitate to book this trip again.
