What to Expect
You’ll be picked up at your central Istanbul hotel and transferred to the port, where you’ll board a private yacht for a cruise along the Bosphorus, the waterway that separates Europe and Asia. Its shores offer a delightful mixture of past and present, splendor and simple beauty.
During the 4-hour cruise you’ll pass the magnificent Dolmabahce Palace and then Ciragan Palace, refurbished in 1874 by Sultan Abdulaziz and now restored as a grand hotel. Overshadowing Istanbul’s traditional architecture is one of the world’s largest suspension bridges, the Bogazici Bridge, linking Europe and Asia.
Enjoy a delightful dinner on board, accompanied by a variety of drink selections and traditional entertainment.
Shrimp cocktail; cold and smoked meat plate; selected cheese board; Ottoman-style appetizer plate (Sultan Spring Roll, Exotic Medallion)
Grilled filled steak; or lean young lamb shish kebab; or Tournedos Chateau with mushroom sauce; or grilled spring chicken breast; or filled sea bass; or chef’s recommendation
Dessert and fruit:
Selected Turkish dessert; or seasonal fresh fruits; or fresh fruit salad
Bottle of wine, gin, raki, or vodka; bottled beer or soft drinks
