Experience of Alexandra Dhow Cruise
As you cruise along Dubai's stunning coastline. You'll be able to admire the city's iconic skyline, including the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. As well as other iconic structures like the Burj Al Arab, Dubai Ain and Palm Jumeirah. The Alexandra Dhow Cruise also offers a range of entertainment options to keep you entertained throughout the evening. From live traditional Arabic music sung by performers and entertaining dances as seen below.
There's something for everyone on this cruise. You'll have plenty of opportunities to take photos and capture great memories of the cruise journey. Especially with the Dubai Ain as a backdrop. The cruise around Marina took off at nine o'clock and ended at about ten thirty. You have access to either the top or lower deck. Since it wasn't completely packed, I was fortunate enough to get seats on the upper deck.
The Tanoura dance was the most enjoyable of the night since the dancer interacted with each cruiser. The colours and lighting of his clothing were vibrant.
Food inside Alexandra Dhow Cruise
Samosas and salads were the buffet's initial delectable offerings. The chef gets everything ready as soon as the ship departs for docking and brings trays to the tables when they're ready. The main courses didn't really wow me due to the limited choices and much of the food was tasteless. Small pieces of cake were included in the desserts, which probably was the only thing pleasant.
Although I didn't particularly enjoy the cruise food overall, the trip was still fantastic overall.
In conclusion, an Alexandra Dhow Cruise is the ideal option if you're searching for a distinctive approach to discovering Dubai and its breathtaking coastline. It's the ideal place to unwind, rest, and take in the splendour of this magnificent city with cosy sitting, delectable culinary selections, and a variety of entertainment alternatives.
In case you're wondering where to buy these tickets, I got mine through Thrillark.
