FAQ

When is the best time to go on a cruise?

The answer to this question really depends on the type of person you are and the type of vacations you like. The two biggest considerations to make when thinking about the appropriate time for your trip are the weather and the amount of people looking to travel. If you like the heat and being with like minded travelers, you will want to consider a summer trip (July and August). May and October will have you feeling the strong Aegean winds, and you can do that without many other passengers.

Why Cruise out of Turkey?

Beginning your trip out of Turkey will allow you to have an extremely unique experience. This is because the Mediterranean offers things to its guests that most other cruises can't. The history that can be found in Turkey, Greece, and Italy cannot be found on Caribbean or Artic cruises. By cruising out of Turkey, you can mix relaxation, luxury, fun, and history.

Is there entertainment on your boat?

The simple answer is yes. We try to accommodate to all our travels (business travelers and pleasure travelers). Our boats have multimedia rooms with Satellite TV, a huge DVD collection, board games, and the Internet. For business travelers we offer satellite faxing and hi-definition inkjet printers.

What sort of food do you have on the boat, and is there options for eating off the boat?

Our boats provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even tea/cocktail hours. Our highly trained chefs prepare delicious local cuisines for our guests on a daily basis. We also understand that there is something special about eating at local restaurants, and we encourage our passengers to explore local towns and communities. We provide a full, up-to-date list of local restaurants that we can vouch for. Don't hesitate to ask us for the list.

What do I do if I have dietary restrictions?

We know that not all passengers are the same, and some need special treatment or consideration. We work our very hardest to fulfill the needs of each individual passenger, whether its a special diet or desired activities. When booking, make sure you inform us about your special needs and wants.

Do I need to acquire a Visa to go on cruises through Turkey and the Mediterranean?

As of 2014, any United States citizen who is traveling to Turkey for less than 90 days must obtain a Turkish visa online. It is a rather easy to go through this process, so make sure you do it before you leave. No longer do immigration officers in Turkey offer stickers once you land.
