This cruise was great fun - we started with dinner (which was better quality than I expected) and then went on deck for entertainment - a number of dances - all of course whilst enjoying the night view of Istanbul. The services was impeccable - the staff really looked after us and there was never a moment when we were without drinks. Of course this is a tourist activity and a little cheesy but it’s a great way to spend an evening in Istanbul and definitely worth the money.

Pick up from hotel at 7pm. Appetiser and salad served on the table where we can eat right away. We can choose either one: fish, chicken or beef for the main dish. Food is fresh and delicious. Waiters are attentive and fast paced. A photographer asked for permission to take our photos and we can choose if we want to buy the photos or not for 20 tl each. After the dinner, we proceed to the upper deck to watch the shows. During the shows, they served us complimentary baklava and coffee/tea. Baklava is abit too sweet for my liking. The shows go on for a an hour plus and is entertaining where guests could participate to dance. At the end of the shows, every guest is free to dance. It can be quite chilly at night, so be prepared to bring your own jacket. After that they send us back to a place nearby to our hotel. Overall I find the cruise tour to be worthwhile and its a must try for anyone who come to Istanbul.

The waiting staff were very friendly and the food was good although the vegetarian option was lacking as it was made up of veg, potatoes and rice. The meat dishes were good though. After dinner everyone scrambled upstairs to try and get good seats for the show. We couldn't see much from the back but enjoyed the atmosphere out on the upper deck. Tea, coffee and dessert were served upstairs then, and people could dance until we returned to shore just before midnight. We did the cruise on Sat night which was then a total traffic nightmare to get back to the hotel.
