Walking along the creekside of Baniyas Street, you can’t miss Radisson Blu’s famous dhow. She was docked right across the hotel, brightly lit to welcome everyone who boarded.

Now I’ve gone on a few dhow cruises before, but out of the ones that I’ve tried, Al Mansour Dhow is the only one that has never disappointed in terms of food, service, and overall experience. Since she is handled by a 5-star hotel, you can expect her spread is the same delectable quality as her restaurant counterparts in Radisson Blu. Just look at these pictures and you’ll see why our tummies were satisfied that night:
As we sampled the various dishes, a musician entertained us all by playing his oud.

Sooner than we wanted, the cruise ended and we returned to where we had been earlier.
All in all, it was another terrific experience. A dhow cruise is always one of the things you should do when in the UAE, and you can't go wrong with Al Mansour Dhow. And now that the winter season is fast approaching, the weather would be perfect to dine al fresco on the upper deck.
Thank you, Radisson Blu and Al Mansour Dhow for the invitation. My sister and I had a memorable night!
