Invest the money for a unique experience! I spent my 40th birthday on the yacht with my family. We had a very friendly employee who accepted us and always told us something about the sights. Too bad the captain was very reserved and didn't say hello to us. There is still room for improvement. We opted for the fish menu. That was a dream, freshly caught and grilled fish with appropriate mezes, followed by a fruit platter with a unique view of the Bosphorus Bridge. I would book it again and again. It's just something special and not as crowded as the simple boat rides.
