Do you sleep on the boat on a Turkey sail?

In short – yes! But you should always check with the company that you wish to book with, whether they have OVERNIGHT air-con in the sleeping cabins. Even if the cabins are advertised with air-con, they usually have air-con only during the day.

Most Turkey gulet sail companies have cabins WITHOUT overnight air-con cabins as the air-con can only operate when the engines are running during daytime cruising. This is not the case with Go Sail Turkey Turkish cruises – the fantastic news is that with us you’ll be sleeping in a comfortable cabin that has overnight air-con with your own ensuite. What could be better?

Our gulet boats are traditionally built, wooden Turkish motor-yachts, which usually hold around 18-19 passengers. As mentioned above, an amazing feature of sailing with Go Sail Turkey is that you get overnight air conditioning in your cabin, which you will struggle to find elsewhere in Turkey. However, that is not the only great feature in your cabin.

One of the most convenient aspects of doing a gulet cruise is that you won’t need to lug your bags around from place to place while trying to see as much of Turkey as possible. Most of the cabins have small wardrobes and cupboards for suitcases and rucksacks. All the cabins have wall sockets (European style – keep that in mind for packing adaptors!) and bedding provided.

Some of the ensuite bathrooms are wet-room style, whereas other bathrooms have a shower cubicle and are more hotel-style. You will get bedding provided but we do recommend bringing bathroom towels for showering and a beach towel for the many swim stops.

Included with your accommodation are your meals: breakfasts, lunches and dinners (please check your itinerary for the included meals), cooked by the incredible on-board chef. You will also get unlimited drinking water, an onboard rep, onboard crew, daily speeches, WIFI and air conditioning.

Layout of the cabins

We have three different cabin configurations, double (one larger bed, usually for couples) twin (two separate beds, 2 x single beds in one cabin, which can be side-by-side or bunk-bed style), and some triple cabins (can be a double plus a single, or 3 separate singles). All our cabins on all our boats have air-conditioning, ensuite bathrooms and bedding included in the price.

Triple cabins

Bunk bed style triple cabin on our Northwind boat featured 1 double and 1 single bed.

What happens if I’m a solo passenger?

We welcome solo passengers on board as this is such a great way to meet new people, explore new destinations and have an overall amazing time.

There are 2 options for solo passengers:

Option 1: You can share a twin cabin (2x single beds) with another same sex passenger. We never put opposite sex passengers together when we are allocating cabins for solo passengers. You will pay the normal per person price to share a twin cabin.

Option 2: You can pay a single supplement fee of 50% of the per person price to have a private cabin. This way you won’t have to share with anyone, and you get your own space. However, we cannot guarantee a double cabin as it does depend what is available on the dates you are booking.

How to secure the cabin you like

  • Make sure to book in advance to secure the cabin you desire, as the cruises get booked up quickly!
  • When making a booking, you will be asked for your bed preferences so please state whether you would like a Twin, Double or Triple cabin.
  • If you are unsure of what cabins you need then simply get in contact and we’ll help.

If you miss out on the cabin you originally wanted, not to worry as most of your time will be spent above deck enjoying the views, sunbathing, and swimming with your shipmates.
