A "really great day"! So the conclusion of our sons 10 & 15. We were just amazed! Picking up at the hotel went smoothly. In the afternoon of the day before we received information at what time we would be picked up at the hotel locker and how we would recognize the bus. He was there on time and took us to the ship in 40 minutes (other hotels were also approached). Here we were able to decide whether we wanted chicken or fish for lunch. We made 4 swimming stops. At 3 you could jump off the ship EVERYWHERE. The music was always great and yet a bit "German-heavy". The foam party at the end was awesome! The music, the animation... just great! Raki was €5, beer €3, soft drinks €1.50 and water €1. Gözleme was available for €2 each. Pringles chips cost €3 (the large can). We would book it again next year if we came back! Just great!!!!

Very nice trip. Bus was on time. The ship is very clean and the crew is super friendly. The food was delicious with trout and chicken schnitzel, salad, bulgur and bread. It was plentiful, and the rest was distributed among the passengers. Drink prices were okay. It was a very nice long boat trip, with plenty of swimming opportunities.

The whole tour was really great. We didn't see any turtles or dolphins, but the lunch was great, the swim stops were great, and it was great value. Only the transport to the ship was a disaster. Absolute mass processing. More people picked up than seats. And the bus driver was 30 minutes late. But otherwise a great experience with absolutely friendly staff and a great atmosphere.
