From the moment we boarded yacht the young crew were pleasant and friendly. We were handed water and soft drinks as soon as we went on board and replenished frequently. We did the evening sail and as our first time in Dubai it was great to see it all lit up. We were treated to a buffet meal on board and very tasty. A big thank you to Djamel and the rest of the crew.

Something different to try if not tried before, the view is not as clear as I would of expected it to be. There seems to be a cloudy view from up there. Never the less we enjoyed it and the service was spot on.
