The Most Romantic Cruise in Bosphorus, Istanbul | Things to do in Istanbul


I was so excited for the first cruising experience in Bosphorus. Aoon had experienced Cruising in Bosphorus twice, Once in October 2016 and second time in our honeymoon in April 2018.

Perfect Weather of Cruising in Bosphorous, Istanbul:


We had our Cruise trip in mid of April in 2018, the weather was a bit cold but it was bearable on the upper deck.

The Ideal month for the Cruise in Bosphorus, Istanbul is between April to October. There are also cruises between November to March but the weather is really cold so you can’t enjoy the beautiful Istanbul from the Upper Deck.

Booking the Cruise:


We had been trying to book the Bosphorus Night cruise Online but unfortunately all the tours were fully booked.

For instance, I thought that we wouldn't be able to experience the Most Romantic Bosphorus Cruise on our Honeymoon and we randomly checked with our hotel if they were offering such services.

We have been staying in Double Tree Hilton, they have a special counter who are catering the needs of the Tourists and book the activities for them. Luckily, they had some slots left and we booked our Cruise with them.

The price of Bosphorus night cruise varies from company to company as some companies offer more luxurious experiences and great variety of food. The normal range is between €40 to €60 per person. We had paid €45 per person. Check Getyourguide for booking your cruise in advance.

Our Experience:


The bus picked us up from our Hotel around 7 PM in the evening, after that the bus had stopped in different hotels and picked the guest from there. It was a bit of a boring experience for us but It was totally worth it. After picking up all the Guests, we reached the starting point of the Cruise around 8 PM.

We had boarded the Cruise Ship, the Ship had set up table settings where people were sitting together. We would feel it much more comfortable if we had our own table.

The Starters had been served followed by Main Course and Dessert and Drinks. We weren’t impressed with the quality of food.


The live music was played by the musical band and everybody was enjoying and dancing.


The professional photographer was capturing the pictures of our special moments during the cruise and gave the photos at the end of the trip for 20 Lira each.


We had spent most of our time in the upper deck of the ship and were deeply indulged in the beauty of the city.

In April, the weather was chilled but we had our jacket on and enjoyed the chilling breeze of the sea. We went on the Upper deck in the beginning of our journey, nobody was there at that time so we choose the best spot for the view. Later on, people started coming over and Upper deck became full of people.

You can also enjoy the view from the lower deck. We were cruising between two Continents Asia & Europe. All the famous monuments and mosques of Istanbul were on the left side and enlightened up with beautiful lights.

One of the most favorite moments in the Cruise was at Sultan Mehmet Bridge, the view was so mesmerizing and inexpressible in words.

The Cruise ship took the turn back in an unnoticeable manner and all the people in the Cruise got the opportunity to enjoy the mind blowing view of Iconic Bridge of Sultan Mehmet.

Now, we were facing towards the Asian side, this side of Istanbul doesn’t seem so happening and a bit dull as compared to European side.

The ship was gradually moving towards our ending point. It was one of the best experiences of our Honeymoon.

The tour operators also had arranged drop off services to the hotel but we preferred to book the Uber and reached back to our hotel within 10 minutes.


Ending Note:


It would be best to book your Bosphorus Cruise trip in advance. The night cruise is more exclusive and expensive than day cruising in Bosphorus. If you are looking for cheaper Cruising experience in Bosphorus, you can have it on a day cruise for 15-20 Liras for two hours without any advance booking.
