This was an evening that just got better and better. The food was OK but as ever you dont go on mass dinner events for the food only. The entertainment was varied and excellent especially the dancing manager . All the staff were efficient and friendly, and the hotel pickup/drop off is a great help to those not knowing Istanbul

Social distancing amongst guests. Food was quite adequate, along with outstanding servers. My daughter was given 'the royal treatment', to which she milked for all it was worth. She loved it. The dance troop was surprisingly more talented than I'd expected. Ship was at not much more the 1\3 capacity, which allowed distancing and more 'hands on' service. DJ had guests hoppin later on towards the end. It was a well run tour and honestly my best evening in Istanbul. Thanks to the entire group. You'll see me again next time I'm in Istanbul.

As a couple, Transfer from Hotel to location, the Ship is beautiful, at the table with other people, to eat: personally tried everything even if some dishes never tasted, from the presentation to the good taste. Unlimited drinks, excellent show and courtesy and service equally. We recommend for a different evening good quality price.
