Hello Rose, It is very unfortunate to hear about the experience on board the Al Faris Floating restaurant. We have been in Business since 2005 with proper documentation and License. If we intend to forge your signature then we are putting ourselves and our business of many years in danger. Kindly note we have CCTV footage from the cruise and have reviewed it several times which clearly shows yourself giving our representative your card with your own hands and even putting in your signature for authorization on the card. In regards to food Please note we investigated the matter and came to our knowledge that you had Allergies to certain food ingredients which was not mentioned while the time of Reservation. Travelers Tip: Before Booking your tours, Go through the Requirements, Tour Timings and Source of booking. Any how we will always be available to serve our clients with the best service no matter the allegations. Thank you for taking the time to write the review.

Kind of boring. No entertainment. Food was not satisfactory. The one positive thing is that the one waiter on board, was such a hard worker.

Average food, expensive alcohol... the views are gorgeous, but I feel the rest of the experience could be improved.

My niece and I had an absolutely fantastic time on this cruise! The food and staff were amazing, and the views from the deck were one of a kind! I heartily recommend this experience to all visitors to Dubai.

Very nice trip at Christmas evening.
, Dec 2020
We were a family with two kids (8 & 12 years) and spend the Christmas evening on that trip. Our kids loved the trip and also talked about it a day after. The food was good and we as vegetarians were completely satisfied. The route was very nice to see Dubai from another perspective. Also the start at the Dubai Festival Center was a good starting point with the Christmas market and the fountain and light show. The people on board were very engaged and made us a great time on board. Nice music and a great dancing show. We would do it again next year. The price for all of that together is absolutely worth. So we can recommend this tour for sure 100%.
Gone down hill...

Poor compared to last year. Really short entertainment and poor food, as well as a lack of availability of promised drinks. They asked for feedback at the end and when honest feedback was given, we where criticised and guilt tripped over it.

Dear Customer, Firstly I would really take this opportunity so sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused. On this particular our cruise manager wasn't available onboard due to an health issue. Would it be possible to write me direct so i can bring a smile back on your face !

Picking up from airport is a problem. I made my own arrangement to the place. Dropping off is a problem because cruise manager Mr Manohar said “NO” but person in the office was good and he made an arrangement for dropping off to the airport
