The pickup is unfortunately not announced in advance, but only when the driver is in front of the hotel. This is followed by a minibus ride through the narrow streets of Istanbul to the place of arrival. Nothing to complain about. Then you get on the boat; the seats are assigned to you. There are shows like a dervish, 2 swordsmen, a belly dancer and a dance group. The music was too loud for me. Music can of course make a meal even nicer, but instead of bad music, silence is more pleasant. The food was good, I recommend the chicken and the fish, but I didn't try the latter. The meatballs were a little too small. The view is lovely.

The view was great and the transport from hotel to ship and back was also very well organized. The food was ok, but the service was very good and the waiters were all very nice and accommodating. I personally didn't like the music, but it was adapted to the audience. Overall it was a nice evening.

Very funny ... dancing and folklore shows accompanied the evening on the Perennial ship. Opportunity to meet many people. Breathtaking exterior panorama with night view of Istanbul illuminated by a thousand colors. Excellent service but then the waiter eventually asks you for a tip. The non-standard dinner can improve. I recommend this experience. We booked online.
