On Friday, I joined the #BloggersCruise, an initiative by the #NationalCruiseCompany and #NewinDoha.
We met at Marina2 at the Pearl Qatar, where we all had time to mingle a bit, prior to boarding the dhow, the excitement was evident.
Once aboard, the staff provided us with the safety on board information.
We embarked on a 3hour cruise, spending the afternoon on the upper deck, making new friends, getting to know each other, appreciating the panoramic view of Doha and the magnificent sunset over the Doha skyline while sipping on a beverage of our choice, definitely a moment to remember!
The dhow was expansive, the majlis on the upper deck was fully carpeted and provided a well laid out seating arrangement, with comfortable back rests.
Soon enough, the sound of the cameras clicking, the shuffling for more selfies, finding the right angle and the correct lighting for the perfect photo opportunity 🙂 #NajlaNabilPhotography provided us with tips on how best to maximize on our camera and device capabilities for better results.
Once the sun had set, we were invited to the enclosed dinner cabin, and treated to a delicious open buffet inclusive of hot and cold beverages, the tables were well set and dressed in white drapery, china and silver, all catered by #FourSeasonsHotelDoha while we enjoyed the sight of Westbay and its shimmering lights.
After dinner, we gathered at the upper deck to make the most of the evening breeze as we returned to the Pearl.
Before we knew it was time to disembark and say our goodbyes to new and old friends.
A dhow cruise is a must on your next visit or stopover in Doha.
