I had so much fun in this cruise. The food was excellent and the show was great. You may admire the Bosphorus Bridge and other attractions in the night and this a wonderful experience. Recommended.
This was a very good cruise in the Bosphorous Strait. The food and wine was great as was the bell-dancing show. The driver delivered us to the boat right on time and picked us up and delivered us back to our hotel. It was great.
The food was great and it was entertaining. Met a nice couple from USA and had a nice conversation and evening
fun night on the Bosphorus. My kids enjoyed the music and danced the night away after the entertainment ended. superb cakes! wonderful evening.

It was fine but I think seatings and ambience needs urgent improvement. Some more vegetarian items on the menu
Great entertainment... the food was good, except for the main dish.
This dinner and belly dancing cruise was ideal for my family of four, with two sons in their early twenties. We were collected from our hotel and taken to the river to board. The cruise was nice but just about half an hour too long. The three course meal was ok with the drinks but do not expect a high quality menu. The food staff were polite but they were always in a rush to get the food out. We liked the variety of Turkish food provided in the entree but the main dish was not as good. The entertainment was very good and the dancers engaged many members of the audience. Everyone had fun. The views at night were spectacular and many great photos to be taken. I would recommend the cruise as long as you are prepared to accept a lesser food selection. Overall pretty good.
This was a nice dinner cruise and the Belly Dancer had amazing control over her body. We had a 3 course dinner which was an appetizer plate, a choice of fish or chicken (both were very good) and fresh fruit which was served during the belly-dancing/cultural show. I would recommend taking a coat or shawl for the show. You eat dinner on an enclosed deck but then go upstairs in the open air to watch the show. As the boat is going somewhat fast when you get up on deck, it is chilly. There are also capes/shawls you can buy on board if you want to. However, once the show begins the boat is going slower and it is not as cold. In summary, this is a worthwhile excursion and a nice way to spend time on the Bosphorus.
The cruise was pleasant and the food was good as well as the entertainment. It's a great way to see the city by water at night. Despite the picture, all eating is done inside which was a bit disappointing. The transportation to the cruise was late and we just got there on time. Overall it was well run and I would recommed it to travelers to Istanbul.
Even in the rain, it was a lovely outing. We enjoyed the meal and the performers were talented. Cruising the Bosphorus was very romantic - a great way to finish off our trip to Istanbul.
This was described as a romantic cruise, but the Portuguese couple that we met on the bus that picked us up agreed that being packed onto a boat with about 200 other people didn't fit into that category. The food was OK and the belly dancing reasonably good. The saving grace was the generous servings of relatively good red wine.
