People     Bosphorus Dinner Cruise

  • "Booked this through our hotel w/o research. They picked us up at hotel and wound around picking up others and fighting traffic. Got on boat and disappointed by appetizers - a cold plate of interesting bites. A bit of a hassle about drinks - hotel said the were included, but on board they claimed no. We persisted and they eventually said ok, and the drinks were repeatedly served. Main meal was fine (not 5 star, but tasty and hot). After dinner you go up top and they have a show with various dancers, culminating with a belly-dancer who pulls up some audience members to dance. Making the mistake of sitting in the front row, I was pulled up for the longest time, to laughter and tears from my wife and 20something daughters. Didn't get back to hotel until after midnight. Quite an experience. "
