Driving Directions

Google Maps

If you are driving to the boat, use ‘Masjid Al Rahim’ (click for map) Mosque in Dubai Marina as a reference.

Another nearby landmark is ‘Lotus Hotel & Spa’ in Dubai Marina.

If you are taking a TAXI you can tell the same Masjid Al Rahim mosque as reference, make sure to clarify its next to Lotus Hotel & Spa.

Driving Directions

  • You should take Sheikh Zayed Road Until ‘EXIT 29’ and stick to the left fork once you are taking the Exit.
  • After you have taken the left road on the fork and once you are on the bridge, you need to take the first right.
  • As you follow the road you will see the mosque on your left side.

Parking

Option 1: All along the roads in that area is street parking owned by RTA. Make sure you pay the fee by SMS.

Option 2: Incase you cannot find RTA parking, there is a paid parking lot called ‘Green Parking’, located just after the Choitram supermarket, slightly down the road from Lotus Hotel & Spa.

Walking To The Boat

  • Usually infront of the boat we have a Team Member, Anjoh (052 899 6337) who meets guests and guides them towards the boat.
  • Once infront of the mosque, to the left of it there is a path/walk way which leads down to the ‘Marina Promenade’ which is basically the pedesetrian path along the water.
  • Once you have walked down the pathway, walk to your right, there is a glassdoor entrance.
  • At the entrance, specify you are going to “Alexandra” and you will be guided to the boat.

I had a wonderful time on the dinner cruise here. The staff was very helpful and friendly and made sure that we arrived on time. We were seated downstairs on a great table, and there was plenty of food, even with the boat being almost full. The food itself was nice as well. Overall I think the trip is certainly worth the relatively low price.

DUBAI MARINA DINNER CRUISE – MORE INFORMATION

Dubai Cruise Dinner

You might be wondering, what is a Dhow Cruise, and what is Dubai marina and what do they have in common?

‘Dhow’ is a traditional Arabic vessel that has been used in the region in recent history as a fishing, transportation and pearl diving based vessel.

In recent times, many Dhows have been refurbished into ‘floating restaurants’, i.e: vessels that have seating capacity that take onboard guests for Cruises, usually with an Buffet Style dinner and some form of live show.

Dubai Marina is a new area in Dubai, an ultra modern area with lots of apartments, restaurants, yachts, boats and a generally great vibe.

Thus a Dhow Cruise Dinner in Dubai Marina is a dinner cruise onboard a Dhow Vessel with a Live show and International Buffet Dinner.

Dhow Cruise Dinner Dubai

Over the years it has become a culture of its own, and now the Dhow Cruise Dinner has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city.

Its a perfect combination of both a cruising and a dining experience which allows visitors to both get a unique view of the city sky-line from the water as well as to have dinner and enjoy an entertainment program aswell.

Dhow Cruise Dinner in Dubai Marina

Dinner Cruises in Dubai Marina have quickly become a part of the norm and now are part of the standard Things to Do in Dubai.

Initially Dinner Cruises have been operated exclusively in the Creek, but with the opening of Dubai Marina, this tradition quickly transferred over to this part of town.

What is Included in a Dubai Dinner Cruise on a Dhow in Dubai Marina?

Onboard Alexandra, we offer a rather extensive International Buffet Dinner with 5 salads, 7 main course dishes, a seafood soup and 4 dessert options.

We serve a small appetizer onboard for the guests upon arrival, until the boat pushes off and the buffet is opened.

We also have onboard a live program consisting of a ‘Tanura’ dancer, originally a dervish traditional dance that is extremely colourful and interesting to watch. It is essentially a man dressed in a very elaborate dress with lights that spins for approximately 15 minutes, creating a wide array of patterns and twirls with his skirting lights.

Its rather hard to describe in words, and must be seen.

What alternatives are there for a Dubai Dinner Cruise?

Well, the only other alternative to a dinner cruise onboard a Dhow is a ‘House Boat’, an ultra modern, square shaped boat that is essentially a house on water. There is definitely some advantages to this form of dinner cruise, however it does not have the charm of the traditional lifestyle that is local to the UAE.

The Dhow Cruise Dinner in Dubai Marina provides a very existential and philosophical contrast between the new and old. A traditional wooden boat that has been used for decades in an area that looks like its from the future.
