What You Can Expect:
Soak up views of Dubai on your Christmas lunch cruise on the Bateaux Dubai Make your own way to the jetty on Dubai Creek for your cruise. Then, take the red carpet that leads on to the beautiful, glass-walled Bateaux Dubai. Receive a welcome drink and nibble on canapés as your boat leaves its moorings, and enjoy the next 2.5 hours as you cruise up and down the winding creek. Take a seat inside the glass-covered deck, find a spot on the open roof terrace or linger on the outdoor deck to absorb the stellar views of Dubai’s illuminated skyline. Relish the cooling evening breezes as your boat glides beneath the Maktoum and Floating bridges, and take snaps of the Twin Towers, Deira Tower, Clock Tower and Dhow Wharfage. Pass the Grand Mosque, Old Boat Port and Old Souk, and enjoy a second opportunity to take photos of the floodlit landmarks as your boat turns back along the creek. Savor a delectable, 3-course dinner of gourmet cuisine, with a wide choice of dishes. See the Itinerary for sample menus. When you book, choose from two drinks options to accompany your meal—a selection of sodas or a package that includes house wines. Enjoy the sound of lilting piano music from the onboard pianist and after your meal, perhaps return to the open-air decks to admire the last, memorable views. Your experience concludes when your boat docks at the original departure point at approximately 11pm.
