    Great experience. Very nice, polite and helpful staff. We enjoyed the performance except the belly dancer. We didn't like her at all. Two years ago I went on the same cruise and the bellydancer was fantastic. Very beautiful and with a smile on her face. The food was ok. The cruise to Bosporus something worthseeing. Transportation from our hotel ok... but felt exposed because noone was wearing a face mask for COVID 19 and the driver didn't say anything.
