Things You Should Know Before a Blue Cruise

Below is our basic guide to Blue Cruise holidays. The most popular options to choose from are cruises along the Aegan and Lycian Coast in Turkey. The ending points of Blue Cruise Voyages are always fixed, including several stops. 

The detailed route depends on the wind and weather conditions and is determined daily by the skipper and the guests. For example, a beautiful bay is chosen for lunch, and later for dinner and sleeping.

  • Packages: Usually sold with the flights, transfers from the airport to the ship and back, and full board on board on the ship. The price depends on the ship. For example, there are basic ships without air conditioning and 5-star ships with hot tub on board.
  • Cabins: Depending on the boat, cabins consist of double beds or two single beds, towels, and bedding. The amenities in the cabin are determined by class of the ship. Depending on the class of cabin and the ship, there might be separate toilets and showers included. Additionally, there is one cabin for the crew and the skipper on board. 
  • Living and Deck: There is usually a salon with a kitchen and table to eat and relax, a sundeck with a canopy and an outdoor couch, desk and chairs, and enough space for everyone on board to lie in the sun. The exact furniture and deck plans depend on the ship. 
  • Activities and Excursions: The boats usually have basic gear for snorkeling and swimming on board, for example diving fins. Excursions could be a part of a Holiday Package Deal, depending on the kind of Blue Cruise, for example Boot & Bike cruises.
  • Tips: It's customary to give a tip to the crew after a Blue Cruise. This tip represents a part of the crew's income. 
  • Food and Drinks: Packages are usually full board with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and tea/coffee in the afternoon. Soft drinks, beer, and wine are included at lunch. Drinks like rakı or imported branded alcohol can be bought on board.

Rent a Gulet for a Tailor Made Blue Cruise

A yacht charter in Turkey for your holiday is a unique experience. 

It's a great option if you are traveling with at least 5 people, in comparison to the price of a Blue Cruise Package deal. You will have full control of the route and places you visit in Turkey, or a nearby island in Greece. 

Ship rental offers also more privacy for yourself, friends, and family on board. We are happy to arrange a private rental with a daily flat rate fee for you, from carefully selected providers. 

This usually includes:

  • Marina Fees: Depending on your travel agency, marina fees in Turkey are already covered in an all-inclusive flat rate per day on the boat. There still could be additional fees if you want to visit a marina in Greece. Make sure that fees are already covered before chartering a ship or expect to pay the fees, if you are not sure how many days you want to stay in a marina.
  • Skipper and Crew: Charter boats in Turkey are usually provided with with at least one experienced skipper and a suitable crew on board. The crew usually consists of a cook and one or two additional service staff members. The price of the crew is usually covered in the daily rate. Keep in mind, that it's customary to pay an additional tip to the crew.
  • Equipment: Depending on your boat, there is usually gear for water sports, like snorkeling, on board. Usually, there are also swimming hoops, diving fins, yoga mats, and similar things on board. The available equipment differs from boat to boat. So, please ask us about available equipment before booking. 
  • Electricity and Gas in Marinas: Depending on the provider, fuel and electricity in the marinas, as well as insurance and taxes are already included.
  • Tips for the Crew: Expect to also pay a tip to the crew on charter boats at the end of your cruise. Tips are a part of their income. 
  • Food and Drinks: You can buy your own food and drinks and store it on the boat or let the crew take care of it. It's popular to fish on board, buy local food from the next bazaar in the marina, or to rent the boat all-inclusive with food and drinks provided.
