We went to celebrate our son's birthday on 27th August. Cruise was beautiful, we sit on the upper deck. Weather was hot and we feel humid but when cruise starts moving, we enjoy the cold breeze. Staff was friendly, captain was professional. COVID safety rules were followed. No nonsense of crowd. Food was average as not much verity but what all was available was tasty. Overall fantastic.

Excelente tour! Cumple con todo lo indicado en su detalle. Nuestro guía Adnan fue muy servicial y atento. Además de contarnos de manera muy completa la historia de Dubai nos ha sacado fotos increíbles que quedarán para nuestro recuerdo! Tks Adnan, you are the best!
