Dhow Cruise

This week I went on my first Dhow Cruise.
It was aboard the flashy Rikks Floating Restaurant.
The ride around the Creek was actually really nice at night and was so relaxing. The buffet food was good with a very small selection of mostly Asian/Arabic food. We were served one soft drink and water and there was no dessert. Disappointing!
There was a party of 15 of us but we could not all sit on the same table as it would cause the boat to sink to one side. They did not inform us of that when we booked.

I actually did have a great time because I was with my friends, however I won't be using the same company again as they were a bit of a let down. There was entertainment for about 3 minutes. It was a weird tanura spinning the end he made his skirt into a baby. The music stopped and all you could hear was a baby crying...disturbing!

So this is my actual first negative review of a place! Shocking! The only thing I enjoyed was the scenery of the Creek and my friends company. I will be visiting the Creek this weekend just for a nice stroll, and will be avoiding Rikks!
