The transfer from the hotel is not particularly comfortable. They indicate a too wide pick-up time frame and we were waiting more than an hour at the hotel door. Taking into account the traffic in Istanbul... Maybe you can't do better. The dinner is according to the price, and the show is a return to the past. The views from the boat, which is neat and clean, are the best. Sometimes the music was too loud to be able to talk... But in general... good.

Great experience! The excellent organization (we chose the package with the lift from the hotel and back), the very good and plentiful food, the really unlimited drinks and the really nice and engaging entertainment. We had a table next to the windows, so the view was spectacular all evening. It all ended with a party on the ship's roof. We are really satisfied and we recommend it!

We are three friends and we chose the activity only for the cruise with dinner. In reality then we found much more, in addition to the delicious dinner, the style, the gallantry of the waiters. In addition there is the possibility of having a paid photo book made. At the end of the evening the cruise turned into a multinational nightclub, where we all danced and all had fun.
