See the Illuminated Monuments From the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires

Get picked up from your hotel or arrive at the port. Hop on the cruise boat and be seated at your private table as you admire the stunning panoramic views of the Bosphorus Strait that separates Europe and Asia. See Istanbul's iconic landmarks, including Dolmabahce Palace which served as the main administrative center of the Ottoman Empire from 1856 to 1887 and from 1909 to 1922. Others include Beylerbeyi Palace, Bosphorus Bridge, Rumeli Fortress, and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, the 5th-longest suspension bridge span in the world. Illuminated at night, the sight of these monuments from the Strait is breathtaking.

Enjoy Traditional Onboard Entertainment

Watch talented performers dance and perform traditional music from different regions of Turkey. The entertainment consists of a Katibim show (a traditional Turkish musical performance), an Asuk Masuk (an imitation play of dwarfs from the Taseli district of Silifke performed by two male dancers), a mixed folk dance, belly dancers, Caucasian folk dance and live DJ performance.

Next, it's time for a three-course Turkish-inspired meal. Indulge in mouth-watering dishes, such as tender lamb shank, succulent grilled chicken, and savoury stuffed vegetables. You can wash it down with unlimited drinks (based on the option selected) from the onboard bar. The lively atmosphere onboard is contagious, and you cannot help but tap your feet into the DJ's music. After cruising for about 3 hours, the ship returns to port.
