Xclusive Cruise Dinner Dubai Marina Review Blog 05

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.

    I always imagine dinner cruises and Dubai as elegant. Put the two together and it seems epic. I bet the city lights look amazing from the water. Buffet and live music seems like a perfect evening to share with your parents.

    I see that you took the sunset cruise on Jumeirah Beach Residences area. I took a similar one and that too, through Xclusive Yachts, on the inner Palm and that was quite cool too! Sunset cruises are pretty awesome usually and Xclusive yacht’s services, food and yachts are the best!

      Hi Medha, I have to agree. The company really delivers! The inner palm route sounds nicer. I’ll take that note for next time I find myself in Dubai. πŸ™‚

    That is definitely one of the better cruises in Dubai, the average tourist who goes for cheaper options experiences sub-par food onboard but you had a live pasta station and food catered by Address Hotels- no better way to cruise the Dubai Marina.

      I guess that’s the reason I find them so easy to recommend to friends and family. I know they won’t be disappointed. πŸ™‚

    Dubai at sunset looks beautiful – such dusky colours in the skyline. The food from The Address restaurant sounds like it has something for everyone. And I love the addition of the musician – I’m sure that added to the magic of the Xclusive cruise!

    • March 19, 2018 / 2:24 am

      Hi Hannah! Yup, the musician sure did make the whole experience magical with his classic playlist. πŸ™‚

    A cruise is always a good idea and if it takes place during sunset in the magnificent Dubai Marina, then it is the really deal! I really love the editing in your photos. They transferred the sweetness of this sunset tour!

    Such a very relaxing experience. I really love watching sunset, so beautiful and so perfect to watch it in a cruise ship. Your photos are beautifully captured, I love the views from the cruise ship. Thanks for sharing this post!

    I loved Dubai. I would like to do this if I get back there. 5 star service sounds awesome for the buffet. That does sound very memorable.

  8. March 20, 2018 / 12:53 pm

    Dubai is mesmerizing at sunset. I liked your cruise experience. The service seems impeccable.
    If it doesn’t make too big a hole in the pocket I may try this.

    You seem to had a great, wonderful, memorable experience. I am sure Dubai at sunset while cruising with music would be looking just out of world. The Xclusive Cruise looks like masters in providing the great services and making customers happy.

    The only cruise I’ve ever been on was the Disney cruise. It was pre travel blogger days but one of the best experiences I ever had. On my to go to list is the Alaska cruise but now I’m totally impressed by this one. Sounds like the perfect item to add to a Dubai Itinerary.
