The cruise was fantastic. Beautifully prepared attractions in the form of artistic performances, fantastic views, good food. The only drawback which, unfortunately, at the very end caused some disgust is the intrusive waiter Kemal who, an hour before the end of the cruise, repeatedly asked for a tip, simply tormenting him orally, and even handed over a piece of paper with the word "Tip". This final incident was unfortunately a bit distasteful due to the intrusiveness of the waiter.

We had a pretty good time. The food is correct at a private table. The show of dancers is continuous all night and in the end we all end up dancing like in a disco, encouraged by the dancers. The waiters did their job well, although between the first and second course it took an hour, but there was no rush because you are distracted by the show or going out to see the illuminated monuments. The only bad thing is that in the end the waiters ask you very insistently for a tip and they get a little unpleasant, they even took our dessert and they didn't listen to us anymore.

We were a group of 22 person and have booked in advance. The view on the tour was wonderful. The show was nice. Food for most of us was good. For my vegetarian colleague food was ok. Some parts of the gluten free food for my celiac colleague wasn't gluten free, so she couldn't eat it. Our bus picked us up in time and brought as back safely. The crew was nice, music was good and all of us had fun. We ended up dancing on the top floor, together with musicians and dancers. All in all it was a very nice evening, that I'd definitely do again.
