Dhow cruise operations in the Creek were stopped with immediate effect on Sunday following concerns raised about their safety.

An emergency meeting of all the departments involved in cruise operations will be held on Monday to decide the future of the dhow cruise industry in Dubai. At least 15 dhows operate on Dubai Creek offering cruise trips to passengers especially tourists.

Dhow cruise operators in Dubai believe the Bahrain tragedy is unlikely to have any negative impact on cruise tourism in Dubai.

Pakistan’s first lady in UAE

From Khaleej Times

Begum Sehba Musharraf, the First Lady of Pakistan, arrived in Abu Dhabi yesterday on a two-day visit to the UAE on the personal invitation of Shaikha Fatima bint Mubarak who hosted a dinner in Begum Sehba’s honour.

Pakistan’s ambassador Ahsan Ullah Khan said he had great expectations from the visit, saying it would go a long way in further entrenching the fraternal relationship between the two brotherly countries, which have common views on regional and international issues.
