Full description

Enjoy Turkish food and entertainment on a scenic cruise with the mesmerizing city of Istanbul as the backdrop. Come across sites such as the Dolmabahce Palace, Bosphorus Bridge, and Anatolian Fortress as you watch a vibrant dance show and listen to live DJ music.

Get picked up from the European side of Istanbul or arrive at the meeting point by yourself, depending on the option chosen. Begin your experience with the Whirling Dervishes show, a spiritual ritual performed by the followers of famous mystic Rumi.

Be captivated by the Zeybek, an Aegean folk dance with heroic vibes. Admire the energetic celebration dance of Latin and Halay from Central Anatolia. Witness Turkish belly dancing and some fast-paced Roman dancing. Move on to the jaw-dropping Kafka dance performed with Caucasian music.

End the experience on a high note with a demonstration of the Black Sea's Horon dance before dinner. Taste a delicious meal of fish or grilled meat, accompanied by unlimited soft drinks. After dinner, a live DJ performance will make your night even more magical as you head back to the port.

The interior of the Catamaran Cruise was very spacious. Since it was not cramped, both the service could be done very easily and the dance performances could be done very easily. The tables were also far from each other. There was a wide variety of food and it was very filling. Glad we joined.

cruise's departure port is in a very central location. We walked around Sultanahmet Square and Eminonu during the day. In the evening, we reached the meeting point easily by walking. We were greeted very friendly. Our meals were very diverse, we were very satisfied. They were all quite delicious. I wanted their dance to never end. I highly recommend. You should definitely attend.

We watched the history of Istanbul with the night view. The Bosphorus Bridge was so colorful that we could not get enough of taking pictures while passing under it. The entertainment on the cruise was great. Officials and dance performances were very professional. It was very spacious inside, very comfortable dance shows could be done. We are very satisfied, thank you very much for everything.
