Most frequent questions and answers

Example #1: Private Event

Lets say you want to have a fully private event from 8-10pm, with 75 guests and a the bronze menu.

  • Boat rental: 2500/hour x 2 hours = 5000 AED
  • Catering: 65/per person x 75 people = 4875 AED
  • Total = 9875 AED

Note: decorations, entertainment & any drinks packages to be discussed seperately. For duration of 3 or more hours we will provide discounts.

Example #2: Semi-private

Lets say you want to have a semi-private event for 35 guests, during our normal dinner cruise time.

  • Lower deck rental: 2000 AED
  • Catering: 65/pp x 35 people = 2275 AED
  • Total = 4275 AED

Yes you can, although we dont recommend this.

Many people are under the impression that catering = food, but besides the food, there is a lot involved

  • Waiters
  • Table setup
  • Cuttlery/crockery
  • Buffet setup
  • Food delivery (special truck + equipment)

So if you plan to have your own catering, you will need to find a caterer that will be able to provide all of the above.

Yes, we can make a completely custom menu for your party.

If you go for a private function, there is no restriction on timings since you are paying per hour.

The prime time hours (8-11pm) are more expensive because they conflict with our daily dinner cruise.

For semi-private events, you will be joining our dinner cruise and so have to follow the timing of it:

  • 8.30 – 9.00 pm boarding time
  • 9.00 – 10.45 pm cruising

We have a licensed bar onboard and drinks can be bought for an extra charge if you would like them. We can also work out an alcohol package for your event on request.

You can find us on google maps as ‘Alexandra Dhow Cruise Dubai Marina

You can reach us by car, or the metro – this involves an approximately 20 minute walk.

Entertainment is also a tricky component since any live performance in Dubai requires a permit.

We can offer you 3 forms of entertainment

  • Live female singer
  • Live tanura dancer
  • Magic show

Any other entertainers will need to be discussed seperately and will cost more.
