Full description

Enjoy Turkish food and entertainment with the mesmerizing Istanbul views at night on an unforgettable dinner cruise. While enjoying very delicious dishes on board, you will come across some of the best city views of the Bosphorus Strait at night.

Feast on amazing foods with unlimited alcoholic drinks while cruising along the European and Asian continents and enjoying traditional Turkish dances and shows. Start with pickup from the European side of Istanbul or arrive at the meeting point by yourself, depending on the option chosen. First of all is the Whirling Dervishes Show (Sema), a spiritual ritual performed by the followers of famous mystic Rumi. Then, watch Zeybek, an Aegean folk dance giving some epic, heroic vibes.

Start with some Latin and Halay which is an energetic traditional celebration dance from Central Anatolia. There will also be some Turkish classic Belly Dancing. It is time to heat up the place some more with some Roman dance, which is a very rhythmic and exhilarant performance.

Moving on to the Caucasian legacy, watch jaw-dropping Kafkas dance performance with traditional Caucasian music and costumes. Last but not least, visit the Black Sea region to witness their traditional dance Horon and set a high note before ending the night.

The main dishes are served at 10:00 PM. The delicious food of fish or mixed grilled meat plate will be accompanied by unlimited soft drinks as well as alcoholic drinks. After dinner, a live DJ performance starts to make this magical night even more unforgettable before heading back to the port.

I had a memorable dinner date! Firstly, the food spread was scrumptiously prepared, I also tried the Raki for the first time! :) The waiters were very responsive and always available at a near distance. There were performances that were very entertaining especially the dancers that made us enjoy turkish music alot! The overall tour was lovely as we streamed down the beautiful Bosphorus strait and the cruise was spacious both indoors and outdoors. We would recommend this for a beautiful evening away from the city to enjoy the food, company and view.

High professional appearance! You feel very comfortable on the ship and special thanks to Mr. Abbas, who really offered good service. Very friendly and very personable. 1 million dollar smile! I can also only recommend the photographer Onur, as he was very patient with us when taking the photos. Keep it up!
