  • "This 4-hour dinner cruise starts with an excellent meal at the dock, and then when you just about finished, the boat pulls away and begins the cruise. The entertainment of typical Turkish dancers is on the open deck above. The dancers engage the audience, and it is an excellent show. One not to miss.
