It was a fun dinner cruise with the dancing entertainment. But the negative for us was that the dj played the music way too loud for the after dinner dancing. We had to go out onto a different deck to escape the overwhelmingly loud music. Actually painful to our ears.

This whole evening from beginning to end was fabulous! The driver communicated with us before pick up so we knew when they were coming. We were taken to the boat where we were welcomed on board and shown to our private table. The service, the food, the entertainment and the music was fabulous. And all of that besides the amazing views of both the European and Asian shorelines and the incredible bridge all lit up. We visited Istanbul for 4 days and without a doubt this was the social highlight of our trip. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the entertainers are super friendly. The host was very accommodating. Not a lot of food though. When we asked for fish, we literally just got fish. No other sides whatsoever, when we requested it- apparently the kitchen was closed. I wish the waiters were a bit friendlier.
