Nice trip, the ship very nicely prepared and great show. Food was very good and sufficient. Unfortunately, it was cleared away very quickly. The artists were very good. The photos were very expensive and in the end everything was cleared away very quickly, you felt a bit thrown out. In places like a sales event.

First of all, the food really is 5 star and well worth spending a bit extra to get a nice meal and boat. The service was great on board and the show was very entertaining to watch and get involved in. Recommend this to anyone, if you are planning to go have dinner in a restaurant I would recommend going in this cruise to get great food and entertainment. Great hospitality from all on board.

'we had a great evening cruising up and down the creek. Met a wonderful chap on the boat forgot his name something to do with marketing. he was really informative about the creek and his home turf Kerala in india. The food was excellent aboard the ship with a good variety for all. the staff were all great and attentive especially as my wife was not feeling particularly good when we arrived at the Dhow. The entertainment was different and interesting, how on earth the guy doing the Twirly whirly dance kept going I dont know. Good value for money included a pickup at the hotel too. I would rate it the best Dhow on the creek. a nice clean entertaining boat
