Begin your evening with hotel pickup from your Dubai hotel. The boarding starts between 8pm-8:30pm with the cruise departure scheduled at 9pm.

Experience a warm welcome with drinks from the onboard staff. As your cruise leaves the dock, the buffet will be ready with live music in the background. See the glittery area of Deira, passing sites such as the National Bank of Dubai, Sheraton Dubai Creek, Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Rolex Towers, the traditional souks in Bur Dubai, and more.

Tanoura and Emirati youwla dancers will provide live entertainment on board, and a cash bar is available to order additional drinks. There will also be a henna painter if you're in the mood for a decorative tattoo.
