Paid extra to upgrade to quad bikes and upgrade boat. The boat was atrocious, departed 50 mins late, overcrowded, no diversity, played majority Indian music and catered to one nationality, the food was tasteless, bland and cold, they didn’t have enough options to choose from. Honestly would not recommend.
I dont recommend this. Super crowded cruise, food was overcooked, and the customer service was a disaster. The people in the boarding area were rude, arrogant and ignoring anything i have asked for. I have made an appointment a day before and still i wasn't on the list. The only thing i liked was the dance show. And on top of all the boat was supposed to depart by 8.30pm and we were waiting till 9.15pm to finally move. Not to mention that you gotta share table with strangers cuz of the overcrowded place…
We went with 10 people and were exteremely happy with the service. Entertainment and cruise were very good. Food was ok but for the cost it was reasonable. Also, the host is very polite and helped us in resheduling twice because of bad weather.
This was a waste of time and money, poor customer service, over-crowded, not hosted on the boat/Dhow which is advertised on Groupon, food was low quality and cold... and insufficient to meet the requirements of the number of customers; Not recommended at all.
