A large traditional wooden dhow, the 'Arabian Discoverer' joins the
growing list that includes the popular 'MV Danat Dubai'; the ocean rafter,
'Gulf Adventurer', and a number of luxurious 'Cruising Chalets'.
The 'Arabian Discoverer', which will take to the waters in early July, is
designed to be the finest in Arabian cruising dhow hospitality. Licensed
for up to 200 people, guests will experience the uniqueness of Arabian hospitality and sample a large selection of Arabic foods and drinks that
reflect the diversity of cuisine from across the region, allowing a voyage of
tastes from across the Middle East.
"The new vessel will perfectly complement our other cruising options,"
explained Chris Anns, General Manager of Danat Dubai Cruises. "With a main deck that is fully air-conditioned and a superb open top deck, guests
can drink in the stunning views along the Creek whilst they relax in Arabian-style comfort."
The 'Arabian Discoverer' will also offer a unique cruise heading not only
towards the Arabian Sea but also under Maktoum Bridge and Garhoud Bridge.
While the 'MV Danat Dubai' will still operate its daily Afternoon Sundowner
Cruises and the Evening Dinner Cruises with live entertainment featuring
a resident pianist and belly dancer, dance floor and international buffet,

"We also anticipate that the 'Arabian Discoverer' will prove a popular
choice for wedding parties and special occasions where the client wants a
true taste of Arabia coupled with 5-star hospitality and service," added
