We spent a wonderful week cruising with the Arkadaslik team; Captain Oktay, Chef Ozan, Sailor Hakan, and Sue. We picked up the boat in Fethiye, and were warmly greeted by Captain Oktay and Sue, and taken to the boat where we met the rest of team. When we had our first view of the boat in real life, we had a feeling that we were going to have an amazing week - we weren’t wrong! We travelled as a group of 4; my Husband and I and his parents. We were also joined by another couple who we hadn’t previously met, it was a perfect mix, and we all enjoyed each other’s company greatly. As you would expect, travelling in July, the weather was very warm! Aircon in the cabin during the evening when getting ready, and before bed, was welcome, although most of us took the opportunity to sleep on deck under the stars most nights - why wouldn’t you?! The cabins were cosy, and the beds super-comfy, with gorgeous fresh white bedding. A well equipped bathroom with shower cubicle was a nice surprise too. There was plenty enough storage, although you don’t need a lot of stuff when spending a week on a boat - I took more than I needed but there still was plenty of room. The food was incredible - Chef Ozan created some amazing dishes, there was always plenty of choice for all tastes/dietary needs - you won’t go hungry! Drinks service was great too, plenty of choice and free flowing! The Arkadaslik team were all incredibly attentive, but I want to give a special to mention Sailor Hakan, who never seemed to stop! Cleaning, making tea/coffee, serving drinks from the bar - he was a superstar! And last but not least, Sue - a really lovely lady. Sue managed the booking process right the way through, and made sure that we were fully informed leading up to our holiday, asking us all if we had any special food/drink requests. Sue also suggested walks we could do off the boat, my favourite being a trek up to the acropolis in Lindos. All in all, we had a wonderful trip, and I have no reservations in recommending the trip to others. Whether you travel around the Gocek islands, or venture further afield like we did, you won’t be disappointed!! Thank you, team Arkadaslik! ❤️

Christine, Thanks very much for your review. We're always happy when a shared cruise blends so effortlessly, further proof that our guests may arrive as strangers, but always leave as friends. I'll pass along your kind words to Hakan. (If you looked up "hard working" in the dictionary, I'm sure there'd be a picture of him in the definition.) We hope to see you guys (and Sue and Malc) again some time. Thank you again for a lovely week! Lots of love from me, Oktay and the boys, Sue

Sue & Oktay are charming and highly competent hosts ably supported by Hakan and Ozan. The Arkadaşlık itself is a lovely boat, with comfortable cabins, a fantastic aft-deck area where all meals are served, and a good seating area on the fore-deck, perfect for pre-dinner cocktails. Plenty of room for sunbathing too on the main cabin roof which doubles as a sleeping area at night if you want to escape your cabin and gaze at the stars. Our cruise down the Turquoise Coast was a real pleasure, with lots of opportunities for swimming, sightseeing, and lots more. A highlight for me was spending the night docked at the harbour in Kastellorizo where we had a great meal ashore at a harbourside restaurant. İt wasn't on the itinerary, but Sue asked if we wanted to include it - we all did. All meals aboard were excellent, varied, and plentiful, and drinks flowed freely. Hakan's gin & tonics were particularly noteworthy! I can wholeheartedly recommend a trip aboard the Arkadaşlık.

Thanks so much for your kind review, Rob! We love it when our shared cruises work out well - people come aboard as strangers and leave as good friends. I'm sure the gin and tonics help everyone achieve that "relaxed and social" feeling ;-) We look forward to seeing you again - both on land and aboard Arkadaslik. Please feel free to stop by any time you see us in the harbour. Lots of love from all of us, Sue, Captain Oktay, Chef Ozan, and Sailor Hakan

Jon, Thanks for your review. We're surprised you didn't mention the fabulous opportunities for swimming ;-) Just kidding. It's lovely meeting a kindred spirit who prefers being ON the water to being IN the water. Take care and keep in touch, Lots of love from me (Sue) and Oktay

A great cruise along a very interesting part of the Turkish coastline. The boat is very comfortable, and the service, food and drink are outstanding.

We have just returned from a truly wonderful cruise aboard Arkadaslik. It lived up to every expectation most notably the warm hospitality of Sue, Captain Oktay, Sailor Murat and Chef Ozan, We were made to feel like their personal guests, the food never disappointed and was plentiful to say the least as were the many offers of drinks whatever you wanted. Along with the most stunning scenery of the Lycian Coast, Rhodes and Symi we had a perfect mix of beautiful blue water, gentle breezes (we were lucky with the weather this early in the season!) and adventures exploring on land in between. I don't think we have felt so relaxed after a trip as we did following this one not least because of the amount of laughter and easy conversation shared with both our wonderful fellow guests (strangers when we boarded but soon to become friends), Sue and Oktay. Until we can return we will 'dine out' on the fabulous photos Sue took throughout our trip and annotated on Arkadaslik's website. Don't hesitate to book - it will be a Blue Cruise like no other!

Shirley, it was a long time coming due to Covid postponements, but a true pleasure hosting you and the "Original Manjamma Man". The wait was definitely worth it! We hope you don't lose the relaxed vacation feeling too quickly. (If you do, peek back at your cruise page to relive some of the highlights.) With lots of love from all of us to both of you, Sue, Oktay, and the boys
