This was a lovely evening. The creek is much bigger than I expected so it was like going up the Thames, but lovely for an evening with all the light. The food was great and there was plenty of it. Would highly recommend this, very good value for money.

We had an amazing evening aboard the Jameela Floating Restaurant. The boat was very clean and comfortable with wonderful, friendly staff who couldn't do enough to make your evening a five star experience. The buffet was delicious and varied. We enjoyed the sights along the way as Dubai is amazing to see at night. The entertainment was also brilliant. We can't recommend this boat trip enough. A thoroughly. wonderful evening where you are also provided with transport from your hotel and returned safely afterwards. Derrick

A lovely way to spend the evening in Dubai

This was a great way to see many of the Dubai buildings at night while having a good dinner. The food was plentiful not amazing but very good and the boat was very comfortable. We were seated on the main floor of the boat indoors which was cold-AC, so bring a wrap. If you can when reserving ask for window seats. We were a group of 6 so this might not be possible as the other groups were seated in the center too so you'd have to lean over others to see the city views. The top deck is open air and very nice. I'd have preferred to be up there but almost everyone there was a smoker. The wait staff were very friendly. I was not aware that they would have a traditional dancer on the boat but it was a fun and pleasant surprise!

This dinner cruise was pretty good. Food was pretty good, and the show was good also. Seeing the other boats on the river all lit up was quite a show. The only letdown was with the transfer driver that took us back to our hotel. There were 2 men in the front seats that picked us up. They had the air on in the front of the van where they were but not turned on in the back. where we were A woman in the group asked that they turn the air on in the back and the men wouldn't acknowledge her until she asked a couple of times. I believe they finally turned it on when she asked for the 3rd time We did notice this several times around Dubai, where the Muslim men would not acknowledge women in general. It was definitely something we noticed in Dubai and one of the reasons we would choose to not visit the city of Dubai again. Just not for us.

The crew in the cruise were very attentive and the ambiance was like that of a 5 star restaurant. We were impressed with the service. The food was good but with very limited options. The entertainment wasn't that spectacular but we still enjoyed our trip.

This was a great evening out whilst overnighting in Dubai. Only set back was the long trip from our hotel pickup due to the traffic but to make up for this we were given a private lift home which was very quick. The buffet was plentiful and good,lots of choices on starters,mains and dessert. The included wine was quite acceptable and the service from the waiters and staff perfect for the occasion. There was lots to see along the creek,many other illuminated boats,and places of interested were pointed out to us. However the highlight was the entertainment which was in the style of Dervish dancing. Altogether an enjoyable time on board.

Whilst the organization for getting to and from the boat was good, we were disappointed when we believed that we were going to get a 5 star buffet. Not so. The food was OK, but not high quality. The scenery by night was average, and the 2 hours was plentiful. The dancing performance was a surprise and lifted the nighttime experience. Probably would not do it again is we returned.

Was nice to travel along the creek at night and see all the lights of Dubai and the all other boats. The service was very good but we were disappointed with the meal.

Terrible, unsafe aggressive driver a road rage incident waiting to happen. He messed up an otherwise enjoyable dinner and evening. It was a scary ride to/from the ship. Complained to the tour organizer when we got back to the hotel. Don't pay for this service, you take your life in your hands. Good food, interesting dancing performance afterward.

The cruise is as advertised. The staff and entertainment were very good. If you are looking for a 5 star meal look elsewhere. The food is OK but not gourmet. The upper deck is only for viewing. all meals and entertainment are on the main enclosed deck. Pick-up was on time.
