How about doing something different to ring in the New Year, 2023? Gift yourself a special New Year’s Eve by going on a cruise aboard the Ocean Empress, the largest wooden dhow that exists. Dhows are traditional Arabian boats that were used for fishing. When we say traditional, we don’t mean that it’s a boat from the pages of history that merely takes you from place to place. The Ocean Empress is a luxurious boat with all modern facilities.

The ambience on the dhow is just amazing! It’s the ideal venue to usher in the New Year. The dhow’s bursting with energy with live entertainment shows keeping it buzzing all along. Jive to the latest numbers from all around the world as the dhow comes alive with partygoers out to have fun on New Year’s Eve. Take in the sights and sounds of amazing Dubai as the boat sails through the upscale Dubai Marina. The dhow gently cruises past major attractions like Bluewater Island, the JBR, Palm Jumeirah and the Atlantis.

Enjoy delicious food served in a 5-star dinner featuring canapés, a live cooking station and a buffet with international cuisine. The New Year Party on the Mega Dhow lets you enjoy how Dubai buzzes with life during New Year’s Eve while you still get to stay at a distance from the large crowds.
