Sightseeing Cruises
Set sail on a short Bosphorus cruise and enjoy spectacular views of Istanbul’s skyline, as you glide past landmarks such as Rumeli Fortress, Bosphorus Bridge, Kucuksu Palace, and Dolmabahce Palace. Alternatively, make a day of it and combine it with a Golden Horn cruise, sail out to the Black Sea village of Poyrazkoy, or ride the ferry to the Princes Islands.

Dinner Cruises
Soak up the atmosphere of Istanbul by night on a romantic dinner cruise and admire illuminated landmarks like the Blue Mosque, the Kiz Kulesi tower, and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. Tuck into a Turkish-style dinner, enjoy onboard entertainment from live musicians and belly dancers, and dance the night away on the dance floor.

Combo Tours
Discover Istanbul by land and water by combining a Bosphorus cruise with a sightseeing city tour. Take a guided walking tour of Sultanahmet and the Spice Bazaar; hop off to explore waterfront neighborhoods like Kadikoy, Galata, and Ortakoy; or ride the cable car up Pierre Loti Hill.
