Did this cruise on a beautiful, sunny day when the weather was in the mid-10s Celsius. The 1.5-hour cruise was only 12 lira. They sell tea and other drinks on board for 1+ lira.
Beautiful views of the European and Asian skylines of Istanbul. The cruise is just the right length if you're like me and get antsy from sitting for too long. They appear to be giving descriptions of the sights over the loudspeaker, but it's impossible to hear anything. Lucky for me the couple sitting next to me had hired a tour guide and I got to hear his descriptions. You pass by or see the key sights, such as Galata Tower, the Blue Mosque, Kale Fortress, Dolmabache Palace, etc. and because it's a smaller boat than some of the other cruise lines, you stay pretty close to shore so you can get good, clear pictures.
