Dodi Princess was a cruise boat on Lake Volta in South Ghana. It was owned by the Volta River Authority and under the management of Volta Hotels. It was the only cruise ship in Ghana.

The ship was replaced with the 176-passenger restaurant ship, Dodi Princess II, built in Akosombo, Ghana by Onur Makina of Istanbul, Turkey.

The ship had three decks. The first (lower) deck was an air conditioned, strictly non-smoking cocktail bar, for guests to enjoy a quiet cruise. The two upper decks were open-aired and allowed passengers to enjoy the scenery of the Lake Volta while being treated to live band performances from musicians. The middle deck houses a sick bay with the upper deck having a large gridiron for barbecue.
