CRUISING IN DUBAI MARINA
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.
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!
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the boat located?
The boat is located in West Bay, Dubai Marina - you can see the map location if you scroll down.
How much is the price per person?
Its not a simple answer because every event is different, we tailor make each event to fit the needs of the group.
The price depends on the duration, timing, type of menu, entertainment and extras. You can see the price section for an idea of each component.
For small groups, we can work out a semi private option that will fit in timing with our other groups and will be a more budget option.
Can we have our own catering?
Yes, however please note it needs to be a full catering provider that will provide all necessary equipment and staff, not just the food.

WEDDING PACKAGES IN DUBAI
Onboard Alexandra we try to avoid ‘set packages’ but rather we work out ways that make a custom made package for every event and every budget.
Every event requires a different menu and different entertainment, different timing, different duration, different decorations and different logistical requirements.
By tailor making every package we are able to make sure that the wedding is perfectly suited for the needs of the event.
We are able to create packages for more expensive weddings but we mainly specialize in small weddings in Dubai since our boat capacity by the standards of a wedding is rather small.
If the budget of a wedding is low, we are able to put together affordable wedding packages in Dubai.
