A relaxing way to see Dubai marina and surrounding landmarks. Plenty of space on the deck and air conditioned below deck. Clean looks, fresh water, good selection of BBQ food freshly prepared. Swimming and diving off the boat was fun. The crew were excellent. Nothing was too much for them.

This was a lovely, relaxing, excellent value for money trip. The staff were really friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The food was good and the boat was nice and clean. We’d certainly recommend it and would love to do it again on our next trip to Dubai. Thank you!

The trip went with the ship from the marina straight towards Al Arab and back the same way. It would have been cooler to use the way back and take a different route. Maybe around the palm tree. Then it wouldn't have been so monotonous. Otherwise everything was fine, everyone was nice and the BBQ was very good. Get enough water.
