the upper deck is a great space with great views and the feeling of being outdoor on a boat, while having the benefits of being comfortably seated in a restaurant environment.
the upper deck has its own buffet setup and own audio system that can be different from the lower deck.
the lower deck is climate controlled and its optimal during the warmer, or in fact the cooler months. It is air conditioned and has full height panoramic windows.
This deck is perfect for semi-private events with a tight budget for 25-45 people.
All extras such as live entertainment, decorations and special requests will be quoted individually.
This option is perfect for smaller groups of 25-45 guests. If you are less than 25 guests, the best option is a sharing dinner cruise.
You will be joining our regular cruise hours and have the lower deck of the boat exclusively, with other guests on the upper deck.

Lets say you want to have a semi-private event for 35 guests, during our normal dinner cruise time.
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
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:
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
Any other entertainers will need to be discussed seperately and will cost more.
Dubai is filled with a thriving community of a large mix of expats and companies which are constant need of a wide range of private parties – corporate dinners, weddings, engagements, conferences, birthdays & team building activities.
Its very difficult to organize a party that which will actually stand out and be enjoyed by all the attendees.
A lot of things need to come together for a succesful private party;
Right choice of party venue
Right choice of catering & menu
Right choice of entertainment
Right logistics & timing
When people look for a party venue, most think of a ‘party hall’ or a ‘party hall in a restaurant’.
The reality is, most party halls are enormous and although well suited for large parties, they are quite boring for small ones and also unaffordable.
A few years ago we started working on private events with Alexandra and have gotten some excellent feedback on the private events which we have ran, which were tailor fitted to the event.
Since the beginning, we have had more than 50 private events of the widest catergories – weddings, engagement parties, corporate events, birthday parties for adults, birthday parties for kids & team building activities.

As mentioned above the very first and arguably the most important component of any private event or private party is the event.
The venue needs to:
Accomodate the right number of people
Thematically fit the overall mood of the party
Alexandra is a very unique venue for a small to mid size event of a maximum of 100 guests.
The venue is unique in a couple of ways:
It has both an A/C ‘hall’ and an open air area in one ‘venue’
The boat is unique, made from teak wood and decorated interior.
Entire venue is wired for clear audio
Live entertainment, vocals, dance
Wireleess microphone for speaking
Male and Female washroom onboard
Buffet tables on upper and lower decks
Alexandra thus combines within itself a lot of characteristics that make it fit for any kind of event.
