It is also a forum for a mixture of cultures through cultural services that will be provided by live library presentations, documentaries, lectures, from all over the world. includes a large electronic library database.

In the same way, a library carries and preserves the cultural treasures of a nation in the form of literature, periodicals, and audiovisual media. In this respect, the architectural concept of the library is based symbolically on the lectern, the Rehl, and translates this into a modern 21st-century vocabulary.

Enjoyable cruise experience.
Graham_M, 26-09-2022
A very well organised tour. Welcome drink and photos on arrival, before being shown to a table with our names clearly marked. The ship left promptly from Festival City and motored along the Dubai Canal passing the Burj Khalifa and the Rainbow Bridge as promised. The tour includes a bottle of water, a soft drink and the buffet dinner. Included in the buffet was the chef preparing various pasta dishes! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the food, which was served at the beginning of the cruise, and were then able to move about and enjoy the fabulous views. We also enjoyed the very decent saxophonist playing an eclectic mix as we cruised along!
Dinner cruise

Food was excellent but we were a little nervous that it was buffet especially since we’re still dealing with Covid & now monkey pox. One lady insist on leaning over food to mask. Definitely needed to be picked up at hotel since it’s far. We enjoyed it
If you want to see Dubai...

If you want to see Dubai at night, this is a must do. Nice dinner on the boat, with live music - all was organized to the point, pick up and drop off - with a small group. Don't miss this one - food was great with live music. Met my prince charming - to bad forgot to ask his name LOL

This was a superb deal. Wonderful canal dinner ride amidst the spectacular lights of Dubai. The food was good and the service was excellent. I can't recommend this enough. Be sure to get there at the start of boarding to a table on top.
Amazing night sky's in Dubai

FIONA_N, 09-01-2023
It was a great experience. The food was great and the staff was helpful. We had a birthday and they made it special with the saxophone player. The manager in the maroon uniform was great. I would highly recommend this as part of a Dubai vacation.

The boat was so inviting, with twinkly lights, beautifully set tables and a lovely atmosphere. Food was great and plentiful and the sax player rounded off the trip perfectly.

Food and service too class
Good experience
Christopher_M, 11-09-2022
The cruise, food and entertainment were good, with plenty of variety of food and the saxophonist playing was very good indeed. Great way to see the Dubai skyline at nighttime.
If we had any criticisms, it's that you're not able to select where you want to sit prior to booking, it is assigned seating only, and the staff were packing away whilst the cruise was still running, which took away from the experience a bit, but all in all I would recommend it
Very Good Experience
Faisal_M, 29-11-2022
Nice trip as enjoyed city view experience. Music and food is good.. Staff is also very friendly and serve it professionally.
Great cruise
Phillip_W, 24-12-2022
Great trip, food was good and the lights of the city were an awesome backdrop.
Only issue is the toilets are not the best on the boat
Good tour
Darren_W, 15-01-2023
Great tour, food was good and plentiful, staff very, very fresh and helpful. We had alcohol included, they weren’t slow at providing so that worked well
Not particularly worth the money, just an average excursion, compared to others we had booked.
Alison F, 12-09-2022
Not sure what I was expecting, but it did what it said on the tin. Dinner Cruise. The tables were set out and reserved which was a plus, but there was no on-board commentary on route, food was average, staff were friendly, but over all, a bit underwhelming, got some nice pictures but that was about it.
