Holidays and cruises go hand in hand. In Dubai there are many cruise options for those wishing to do some sightseeing aside from the traditional land route. Cruises in Dubai vary from charters of dhows and catamarans as well as yachts.

Guests have the option to do a catamaran cruise for fishing as well as sightseeing purpose, or a luxury cruise charter on a yacht to feel like a super star for the day. However, most tourists prefer to do a cruise in Dubai on dhows. Dhows are traditionally made, hand crafted, wooden vessels of different sizes for commercial and tourist use. Since dhows offer a cultural cruise with a true taste of Arabia along with modern amenities and facilities normally only found in yachts, tourists opt for this option.

Dhow cruises in Dubai are very popular for dinner and entertainment in the evenings. Daily dhow dinner cruises are found along the Dubai Creek and Dubai Marina. Cruises in Dubai generally take place for two hours in the evening (usually 8.30 to 10.30 pm) with a fully inclusive open buffet and musical entertainment on board. Buffets are usually international menus to suit tourists of all origins. Dhow cruises in the day usually do not include meal options. Day cruises in Dubai for sightseeing usually last up to an hour and refreshments are sold on board or included in the price, depending upon the operator you choose.

Different Cruise operators will also offer you different routes to choose from. The Dubai Marina is a newer location and the cruise route covers new Dubai and the recent developments in the city. The most talked about landmarks in Dubai are along the New Dubai cruise route. The most luxurious hotel in the world (Burj Al Arab), the engineering marvel of the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island with the lavish and legendary Atlantis resort, The Dubai Marina and world class waterfront properties are all within close vicinity or the Marina Cruising route.

Another cruise route option is the Dubai Creek. The Creek route covers the trading areas and where the city initially started its development from. This route covers the traditional shaped buildings with towers at Bastakiya in Bur Dubai, along with the Dubai Museum as well as the spice and gold souk markets in Deira. Some tourists like to cruise along both routes and get the complete picture of the entire city, all whilst cruising gently along calm waters.

Cruise in Dubai with a dhow boat for a great perspective of the ever evolving city of Dubai. Full of glorious contrasts and contradictions, tourists keep coming back to see what is new on offer.
