The Dubai Marina water canal is a renowned piece of architecture and a premium area for a dinner cruise.


We operate 2 very similar refurbished dhow boats in Dubai Marina, Alexandra I and Alexandra II.


An important part of any function is the entertainment!

We can offer you 3 excellent options to entertain your guests.

Live Vocalist

Who doesn’t love a beautiful female voice? Our lovely singers will add a little flavor to your dining experience with some pieces that you will surely recognize!

Tanura Dance

The tanura dance is a flurry of movement of light that is extremely visual and will definitely leave an impression for someone seeing it for the first time.


Everyone loves to see things they cannot understand. We all want to feel that inner child, and one of the few things that can do that is a craft illusionist.


Below is a sample menu which we use on our daily dinner cruise, however we have a

wide range of menu builders which will be shared to you along with a quotation.

we have said everything about ourselves, but what is more important is what others say about us

we dont hide from our mistakes, all the review platforms below


Dubai is filled with plenty of businesses from small operations to large multinational corporations and like people, businesses need a time to take a break from the monotony of work and to refresh their spirits and improve motivation.

Most organizations have an event atleast once a year and at Alexandra we try to make it a point to make every event memorably and genuinely enjoyable.

In reality, a lot of employees participate in such events not because they particularly want to, but because they are expected to. We believe its not right, and work meticulously to ensure that every event is planned to perfection.

There are 4 key elements of any corporate event and only when all 4 work together in unison is the event a success.


The first and foremost element of any event planning is selecting the venue.

Alexandra is a unique venue and is a perfect fit for a small to mid-size organization.

Here are some quick characteristics of the venue:

  • Upper open air deck, 55 people seating capacity

  • Lower air conditioned deck, 55 people seating capacity

  • Boat is fully wired with top of the line sound system and wireless microphone

  • Buffet tables on upper deck and lower deck

  • Sound system allows for any kinds of audio setup


Everyone enjoys a good meal, and a corporate event is not possible without a good meal that everyone will enjoy.

Everyone however has a different perception of a good meal is.

Every corporate team is comprised of different nationalities and thus its important to select a menu that everyone will enjoy.

Besides the taste in menu, another important aspect is budget – and the menu must match the allocated budget of the business.


Logistics & timing of the event is crucial to make the event a success.

Some teams prefer a lunch timing, some prefer an early dinner and some prefer a late evening cruise.

Some prefer to join our sharing cruise and some want to have a private cruise with a custom duration of the cruise.

Some corporate companies require transportation.

Table arrangement and set up is also unique to every team and needs.


The last component of any private event is the entertainment or live show.

We offer 4 main activities for corporate events:

Team Building Activities & Host

The Team Building Activity consists of splitting the entire group into equal teams and going through a set of games which require the teams to work together in order to defeat the other teams.

This lasts about 60-90 minutes and is only feasible for around a maximum of 50-55 people.

Live Singer

We have a full time singer, Natalia who sings pop, jazz and soft rock in English. She is able to do a maximum of 2 x 30/40 minute sets.

Live Tanura Dancer

We also have a full time dancer – Walid, who is a real maestro when it comes to dancing. He can ‘spin’ for a straight 15-20 minutes and his show is truly dynamic and visually impressive.

Magic Show

For private events, we work with Ashik, who is a very well known magician in Dubai and is able to do a wide range magic tricks that will amaze even the most harden sceptics.
