Description

Welcome the New Year in style in Istanbul on this Bosphorus dinner, show and sightseeing cruise. Board a comfortable boat, sip on a welcome cocktail, and admire Istanbul’s sunset-washed skyline, including the glowing Blue Mosque and neon-lit Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge from the water. Savor a scrumptious dinner and unlimited local drinks, and enjoy a dazzling Turkish folklore show including bewitching belly dancers. Come midnight, celebrate with a glass of Champagne, enjoy grandstand views of the city’s dazzling fireworks and dance to the onboard DJ until the early hours.

Leave your centrally located Istanbul by air-conditioned coach and travel to the cruise departure jetty. Alternatively, make your own way to the departure point.


Board your prettily illuminated boat and sip a welcome cocktail as you cruise onto the open waters of the Bosphorus; the strait that divides Istanbul between Europe and Asia.


Admire this scenic stretch of water as the sun sinks behind the city’s picturesque skyline. Glide past Ottoman summer palaces and mansions, and look for landmarks such as the Kiz Kulesi tower, Dolmabahçe Palace and Blue Mosque. Take photos, too, as you float under the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, with its illuminations shining brightly in the dusk.


Savor a delicious New Year’s Eve dinner of Turkish dishes served with unlimited local beers, spirits and soda. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. Imported drinks are available to purchase from the onboard bar.


As you dine, enjoy a colorful Turkish show of singing, dancing and entertainment. Be swept up by traditional Turkish music and Anatolian and Romany folk dances, and watch a spellbinding belly dancing display, as exotically costumed dancers shimmy around the tables.


As midnight nears, join in the countdown and toast the New Year with Champagne. Then, enjoy grandstand views of the celebratory fireworks as a huge display crackles and bursts above the Bosphorus.


Afterward, hit the dance floor as a DJ spins international and Turkish tunes. Enjoy the music and partying until your boat returns to the jetty at around 2:30am. Then, board your coach for your hotel drop-off, when your experience ends.
