Wow! No words can describe how relaxing and memorable this experience was. The first time I experienced cruising was in Ha Long Bay, Vietman where my brother and I had a day excursion. This time, I decided to bring my parents in a sunset cruise organized by the only five star dinner cruise operator in Dubai Marina, Xclusive Cruises.
Xclusive Cruises holds dinner cruise along Dubai Marina every night for tourists or even locals looking for a serene experience while munching on great food. There are two time slots; 5pm and 8pm. The 5PM slot was the sunset cruise. The price was inclusive of buffet menu catered by The Address hotel, five star service from the crew, and a musician that played moving classic songs to top off the whole experience.
I decided to go for the early dinner so we could enjoy the magnificent view of the sunset from the middle of the ocean near The Palm Jumeirah as well as to see the tall buildings with unique architecture along the famous Dubai Marina. I couln’t have made a better decision for a first timer. The food selection was amazing. There was definitely something for everyone. Salad, Fish, Chicken, Noodles, Dessert, Indian, Greek, Asian – you name it. Not to mention, they have a live pasta station where the chef cooks your requested choice of pasta and sauce right in front of you. You can have those delicious food while watching the ocean, sunset, yachts passing by, jet skis, and luxury resorts. It was definitely alot to take in at first. I just felt so drawn with the ocean and music, I kept on saying “This is so beautiful!”.
The cruise lasted for an hour and half. We were back in the docking area before the night sky and even after departing the cruise was an experience. Walking along Dubai Marina is such an entertainment most especially at night. You can see the warm lit lights wrapped in the perfectly aligned date trees, dhows and yachts cruising with different music, and when you look at the water, you will see a colorful reflection of all that’s happening in the lively area.
If you’re planning to have a memorable and relaxed activity in Dubai, I highly suggest having a dinner in Dubai Marina that’s operated by a tried and tested operator – Xclusive Cruises. Their reservation is very responsive with my questions as well. And oh! Don’t forget to arrive 30 minutes earlier so you won’t miss the cruise. So sad to see some guests running and being left.
