Istanbul: Bosphorus Dinner Cruise with Entertainment
Get ready for a pleasant boat trip on the luxury cruise along the Bosphorus Strait, dinner from a menu of Turkish meze dishes, mains and local drinks. Sail past some of Istanbul's most magnificent monuments, while watching traditional entertainment along the way.
Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the yacht will be the start of your journey. Get a welcome cocktail on deck as you begin to sail as far as the Black Sea. Cruise between Europe and Asia, passing under the Bosphorus Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmed Bridge.
See the summer palaces of the Ottoman sultans, such as Dolmabahçe Palace, Çırağan Palace, and Beylerbeyi Palace. Admire the grand Ottoman fortifications of Rumeli Castle and Anatolian Castle. Soak up some of Istanbul's legendary nightlife as you pass famous night clubs, such as Reina and Sortie. Marvel at the waterside mansions and villas that line the European and Asian coasts.
While you are enjoying dinner, watch live folk dances from different places of Turkey. Be tempted by the sensual moves of a belly dancer, and relax to international music by the on-board DJ.
Back on the coastline, enjoy a comfortable transfer back to your hotel.
