The trip was really awesome and the entertainment onboard the cruise. The second course was tasty but they could add a source so that its not so dry and the dessert was a bit off putting. Being in a Turkey I would have expected Baklava but all we got was grapes and melon.

Incredible experience. I would 100% recommend anyone reading this to book this experience. A driver came up pick us up from our hotel and then we had a nice dinner with entertainment and great music while touring the sea. We were dropped off back at our hotel in the end and it was such a good experience.
