First, the cruise was supposed to be done around 10:30 PM and not 1 AM. We finally left the dock at close to 9 PM to start the cruise and we were picked up at our hotel at 7 PM. The food is not very good, I had the chicken. The rolls come individually wrapped in plastic, similar to airline... More

This cruise has decent cuisine and excellent service.The night view is incredible!The show performers are quite skilled so the show is delightful to watch. The roving photographer took some excellent photos of us.My only complaint is that the room was way too crowded. Squeezing in so many people made me uncomfortable and nearly ruined a lovely experience.

The dinner cruise was a great experience, a wonderful way to see the historical constructions of Ottoman era. The dance show is well rehearsed and expertly executed. With cheerful performers and lively staff. Food was not-too-good-not-too-bad. But the rest of the experience was great. Hotel Pickup was in time and the drop off was without hassle.

Went with a large group of colleagues. The experience was great just for being on the Bosporus but the food was slightly lower standard than expected eg over cooked meat and fish served a bit cold. There was plenty of wine and beer though. The music and dancing was fun but that would depend entirely on your cruise mates of... More

I just loved it !!! The food is really delicious and the service is distinguished. Aziz is very professional in his job he serves with passion. The show is very entertaining and very Turkish. I will certainly go there again when visiting Istanbul.

This was such a wonderful experience. So here I am in Turkey and I'm solo going to this dinner cruise. My experience at this point led me to majority of people who did not speak English (expected).

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
