Your yacht dinner in Dubai

Our Dubai yacht charter specialists will give you all of the needed details about your itinerary in advance. In fact, deciding the itinerary is one of the first steps, along with choosing the type of vessel.

For a one-day charter, like the one offered for a yacht dinner, you will have several options to choose from, all starting from the Dubai Marina.

Most dinner cruises start boarding at 6:30 PM and depart around 7 PM to ensure that the guests have a pleasant experience at sunset.

Itinerary examples include:

  • Dubai Marina – The Palm Islands – Atlantis – The Jumeirah Beach Residence;
  • Dubai Marina – Palm Jumeirah Lagoon – the famous Burj Al-Arab;
  • Dubai Marina – Ain Wheel – Jumeirah Beach Residence and Harbor.

Most dinner cruises have a duration of 1.5 hours.

For a complete experience, and one that will allow you to see all of the important landmarks, we recommend choosing a cruise with a duration of 2.5 hours.

More information about your dinner cruise is listed below:

  • The dinner cruise is available daily and you can receive an instant confirmation, provided that your chosen time slot is still available;
  • The dinner cruise boarding will usually commence 30 minutes before the departure from the Marina;

Sample menus for your yacht dinner in Dubai

Our team caters to the needs of guests who follow strict diets due to medical reasons, as well as those who are pretentious eaters.
We will help you choose a yacht menu in advance, based on your preferences.

Below, we list a sample menu for a yacht charter. Please keep in mind that the ideas are for information purposes only and should be used as a guide:

Italian dinner

  • Welcome drink (optional);
  • Appetizers: bruschetta, beef carpaccio, cheese, and meats selection:
  • Main course: choice between grilled lobster, pesto-crusted lamb medallions, seafood pasta, or other pasta varieties;
  • Dessert: panna cotta, tiramisu.

Asian dinner

  • Welcome drink (optional)
  • Appetizers: dumplings (varieties to choose from), baked fish cakes, sushi (varieties to choose from);
  • Main course: Choice between Hoisin duck, grilled prawn with noodle salad, spicy crispy pork belly with work fried greens;

Luxury menu options are also available, as well as buffet-style menus.

A dinner buffet can include a grill section, salads, pasta, rotisserie, ethnic cuisine (Indian, for example) and others.

You can choose the buffet option if the dinner cruise is perhaps shared with friends and family.

For romantic dinners, we recommend choosing an à la carte menu (where you can order individual dishes from the menu) or the special table d’hôte (the set menu, often used for luxury cruises with exquisite meals).

Because the dining experience is the main event of the cruise, we encourage our guests to reach out to our yacht charter experts in advance so that we can plan the menu knowing more about specific tastes and preferences. 

How to prepare for your yacht dinner in Dubai

First of all, we advise our clients to book their yacht dinner in advance if they wish to schedule this event for a very important date.

If the yacht dinner is a spontaneous decision while you are visiting Dubai, advance planning is not mandatory. However, because many vessels are booked in advance, when you plan a special dinner night in advance you will make sure that your desired date is available for booking.

If this is your first time on a yacht, you should know that you will be asked to follow a few rules. These are both for your safety, as well as to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone onboard.

The captain and crew know the vessel better than anyone. They will be the ones to ensure that you are informed of the general safety rules and that you have a very pleasurable experience onboard.

You will receive a safety briefing and orientation as soon as you come on board the vessel. The information about lifejackets and the layout of the yacht is important, and it is a mandatory step, just as when you fly on a commercial aircraft.

Certain areas of the boat, such as the crew quarters and the galley, are off-limits.

One of the most important rules on a yacht charter is the one concerning footwear. You will be asked to remain barefoot or use special boat shoes that are clean and have white soles so as not to damage or stain the deck.

In general, there is no smoking inside the cabins. A smoking area is usually designated on one of the outside decks.

Bringing your pets onboard is only permitted in some situations.

yacht cruise in Dubai, especially a dinner cruise, can be an unforgettable experience.

Observing the simple rules described above, as well as paying attention to any other essential information offered before you board the ship (and by the captain and crew once you are onboard) is important to ensure not only your safety but also your wellbeing.
