Ready to go on a dinner cruise in the Dubai Marina.
I couldn’t wait to get on the boat and sail down the Marina while having dinner buffet-style. You know I love food.
The Dhow Cruise
When we arrived to the boat, there were fresh sweet dates waiting on a platter before we even stepped onto the boat. I can’t begin to describe how sweet these things were! Omg. I couldn’t eat just one.
I finally had to pull myself away so I could board the boat because my date kept encouraging me to try another one and another one because he saw how much I liked them. I’m telling you—I could have eaten the entire platter myself. Which means there’d be none left for the rest of the crew—but such is life.
This cruise was one of the most beautiful and romantic ever! I loved looking out the window at the water and all the beautiful buildings. It was a sight to behold.
Me and my dinner escort.
The buffet-style dinner was lovely. Of course, I had to get one of everything which required more than one plate. And since I don’t have eight arms, I could only carry one plate back to the table. But my date surprised me by bringing me a second plate with food from the other side of the buffet—which I hadn’t made my way to yet. But you knew I was headed there, right?
For someone that’s only known me a short time, he figured me out pretty quickly when it comes to food! He was such a gentleman taking care of me. Ahh, I just absolutely loved meeting people in Dubai.
It was so calm, peaceful, serene, and relaxing out on the water—ahhhhhh—and then the tanura show begins! Woah!
The tanura dance show was pretty cool. I don’t know how that man twirled around so fast and for so long without getting dizzy and falling over. It was amazing to see. I have to say, though, it was an enjoyable time that I will definitely go back to again.
And I can’t even begin to tell you about the breathtaking views I saw out the window and on the upper deck. It’s definitely something you had to be there to see. I could have cruised around on that boat the rest of my life without a care in the world.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, try to learn tanura dancing and see how long you can twirl about at 100 miles-per-hour without getting nauseous.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Always have a dinner escort with you so you can borrow their pair of hands to help bring back all your plates of food from the buffet table.
