The experience was excellent! The price for the app was below what is offered on the streets of Istanbul. I chose the option that included the transfer and drinks, in my point of view they were great choices. The transfer picked us up within the agreed time frame. The reception was super fast and within moments after getting on the boat we were already eating the starters and receiving the first drinks. I tried the wines and beer and they were very good. Dinner had a plate with very tasty starters and a well served main course. The shows at night are quite typical and lively. The app also offers the possibility of paying €5 more for a well-located table, I thought this additional investment was excellent as it was possible to enjoy the night view of Istanbul during the entire dinner.

The meeting point details were clear. We found the ship easily. The staff was attentive and friendly. There was a full lineup as far as entertainment- a lot of variety. I thought the belly dancer was extremely talented but it was a bit crass when she was going table to table to collect cash. The food was just okay- it was what I was expecting for such a touristy activity. I still would recommend it to people who want to see the sights and enjoy some entertainment.

Very entertaining few hours. We reached the yacht at 8:30 and the cold starters were already at our table. We had that and the yacht left the dock at around 9pm. Then the mains came which was tasty as well. I enjoyed the portion size as it was not too big or small for me. Desserts came at the end. They were serving Turkish tea and coffee as well as soft drinks which were included in the standard ticket. The entertainment was really fun as well. We went up to the decks at the top and had really good views of both sides of Bosphorus and the bridges with lights on. We were dropped back at the dock around 11:30, which was very helpful as the last tram from Kabatas to Sultanahmet was at midnight. All in all really enjoyed the cruise dinner and was worth the money.
