Atmosphere cruise

The biggest problem came right when the map sent to us was pointing to the wrong dock. Luckily, we were on time because our ship left 1.2 kilometers away. Walking in high heels was not pleasant. The cruise itself was beautiful in the canal area. However, I would have wished the translation site had not stopped for an estimated 20 minutes, but perhaps went a little further. The food was good and there were nice options at the buffet. The dessert cheesecake was over when it was our turn. There was fruit salad left.

Good experience.......................................................

Food got over very fast. Many of the items(such as- Kebabs) were closed soon after the starting. There was no further serving after that. Please consider these while serving next set of guests! This is not only my feedback, as there were few other families and everybody had same opinion. Guitarist was superb!! All my Good Luck to him!! Locating this place in Dubai was little tricky!!!
