The most frequent questions we get about our cruises and answers that work!
As the name suggests, the 18-39s cruise is aimed at travellers in that age bracket. The 18-39s cruises are not “party cruises” as they attract travellers looking for a more balanced trip with lots of swim-stops, sightseeing and exploring during the day, with fun and socialising in the evenings and the party in some coastal bars on at least one night during the cruise.
The mixed-age cruises can have travellers on board aged between 6 and 69 and tends to attract families, slightly older travellers over 39, young professionals, couples and solos of all ages.

All our meals are served buffet style.
Please see our detailed description of our meals here: WHAT KIND OF FOOD IS SERVED ON MY BOAT?
Please tell us about your special dietary requirements (we have catered for vegetarians, vegans, lactose-intolerance, gluten-free, allergies, kosher and many other dietary needs) before your cruise starts and our onboard cook will do their best to cater for them.
Meals on board are also served buffet style so you can pick and choose what suits your diet most.
You can only bring your own snacks onboard such as peanuts, crisps, biscuits etc. But you cannot bring your own drinks onboard, including water (as this is included).
Our gulets do not have card facilities onboard. All payments for your bar tab can be made only by cash locally on your last day before you check out of the boat.
We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
ALL CLEAR travel insurance offer good prices:
The boats have at least one power socket in each of the cabins and there are also some in the salon area. You can use the power sockets when the engine or generator is on.
No, you will not be provided with towels. You should definitely bring your own bath and beach towels.
In a word, no. There are numerous reasons why:
(1) When we experimented with wi-fi routers onboard the boat, we found that it caused more issues than it solved as we had several complaints per cruise regarding poor reception, bandwidth, dropout etc. Unfortunately, this was out of our hands as the boats often dock in secluded bays and cruise through areas with poor reception.
(2) Due to the above issues with shared routers, we noticed that guests had better reception individually when they used their own roaming or purchased Turkish SIMs. So this is a good solution and stops us being blamed when reception is poor!
(3) We also get hundreds of comments per year saying that guests loved the experience of having a “digital de-tox” and simply getting back to more of an organic trip experience. However, we understand that some people may not want that de-tox, or may need to be online frequently for work reasons. Therefore, we find the individual choice to go on roaming or use a Turkish SIM works perfectly!
