The food was slow to arrive and weave it did it was flavourless. The show was boring in fact the best view was actually watching the live feed from the camera to the TVs located around the boat. The show and dinner distracted from the extremely poorly commentated view of the foreshore and the palaces. Don't get me wrong the... More

Do some search on internet before booking the cruise, as there is huge price difference between each operatore while there is no difference in quality of Curise ! Do not expect private seating. Food is reasonble. It will be more pleasant and enjoyable during summer as one can sit on upper deck with open air.

The seating is crammed in and unless you're a party of 8 there is no private seating - you'll be seated with others on a long table. There's one corridor for people to walk in between tables but it's also where the waiters are rushing back and forth carrying trays so be careful. The food and service was awful! Salad... More

The 4-hour dinner cruise was capped a holiday with a friend. The food was good and the drinks (on the house) were generous. One should not miss the cruise if in Istanbul.

The food was NOT good. The Belly dancer was excellent but the rest of the show was pretty corny. Again, the food was NOT good. Don't waste your money. We were sooooo ready to get off that boat. Such a waste of time and money.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
