The entertainment and the DJ was the best part of the cruise. The skyline views in the evening was beautiful and the food was great. We went as a family and it was a good time for everyone. There were also lots of singles and wide variety of ages in the cruise. After the dinner and shows the DJ played music and opened up the dancefloor. It was so fun and music selection was great. Would highly recommend this dinner cruise.

We enjoyed a great cultural mix of people at our table--a couple from NYC, newly weds from Mexico City, a single woman from Ukraine, and a father/daughter from Switzerland. It was a party boat! It was mainly bout the dancers and entertainers and offered no narration of sights along the River. The entertainment was varied and enjoyable and the music was enjoyable. A fun night!

The whole experience was a big meh.

Firstly, The food was horrendously horrible. The chicken was bland, everything tasted like it was washed away of everything that makes food taste good. Bland, hospital like food that you would be forced to eat if you had a stomach infection. If that wasn’t enough, the so called 3 course meal is a salad, bread and chicken. They didn’t give us enough time to eat the appetiser and threw away like 80% of the food they gave us because of how much extra they allotted to each person. The salad was just cut lettuce, but an entire lettuce per person. There was enormous amounts of food wasted. Plus there were no good vegan or vegetarian options. You’d be better off eating McDonald’s.

Secondly, the cruise is crowded. Not too much so, but enough that there isn’t really a lot of room to move. Another issue was that there were a lot of “petty charges”. This is when you charge for the most basic of things because you don’t want people to enjoy the experience. Ice cream for example was chargeable. Not a reasonable amount, but like 100-200 liras. There were also other things that made no sense that were chargeable.

Thirdly, while the performances were great and the staff was polite and helpful, the whole experience seemed to drag on and on. We were done seeing the entire Bosporus in about 2 hours with performances included. The last half was the boat crawling and wasting time going at the slowest pace possible. We didn’t even end up going near the Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace.

Lastly, for the cost, I would strongly recommend that you either get a private boat or go for a different cruise. The only thing going for this cruise, was the staff and the views. Everything else was subpar. In addition, it didn’t help that they allowed smoking on board as many older Europeans are addicted to smoking and have no consideration for others inhaling their poison.

My friend and I weren’t able to attend the event on the date indicated as we were too exhausted to do the cruise that night. I messaged Ercan and he was very flexible in every way possible, he offered us to attend the cruise the next day instead and we were truly thankful to him.
He goes above and beyond to meet his customers needs and demands and make the experience truly pleasant.

The cruise, the food, the music and the dancing was incredible.
We loved it and look forward to doing it again next time we’re in Istanbul.

Thank you again Ercan and tourmania for everything :)

Worst cruise experience
Cruise was supposed to leave at 8pm but instead left at 9.45
The dancers were supposed to start it soon after 9pm but it took a long time. We were standing on the deck, in cold weather and in the end, we gave up and went inside to sit in some warm room. Many others followed us too
We also did not get the desert and we’re told it was over.
I will not recommend this cruise to anyone. Name of the boat was Turner, an orange colour boat.
Really regret wasting our precious time in a limited holiday on such disorganised cruise dinners.

It was really fun. We were picked up on time, treated well, given a lot of service, a sea sick pill for me who needed it and more. The shows were entertaining and we had time to take and enjoy photos.

The main floor of the cruise was rented out for a wedding party, and we had "dinner" on the next floor up. while I did not get sick, it was still the worse food I had during my entire visit to Turkey. Cruise was okay, we sat in the dock for an hour, so a 4 hour cruise was really just waiting 1 hour for a 3 hour trip. The poor staff really did the best they could, but there were so so many people jammed onto the boat, they could not keep food and drinks coming out fast enough. I loved my trip to Turkey, but this cruise was the worst. Even the Istanbul airport was better.

We loved the food and the service, people were so nice and the show was so amazing and so beautiful. the tables felt a little stuffed because of the chairs but some chairs could be removed if necessary so there we no problems whatsoever. Getting there was easy too, we were picked up by a driver who also dropped us off. Amazing experience. :)
