Luxury Gulet Cruises for Couples and Solo Travellers
While our primary business is hosting private cruises, we occassionally offer shared gulet cruises (also called "cabin charters") for couples and solo travelers. By sharing the boat and splitting costs with other like-minded guests, the price per cabin remains affordable for guests who appreciate the personal attention and niceties that come with luxury travel.
What Makes Our Shared Cruises so Special?
Besides cruising on an immaculately clean, comfortable gulet and enjoying spectacular scenery enroute, you will enjoy:
- interesting and unique itineraries in Turkey and Greece
- fantastic meals and snacks based on your group's combined tastes and preferences
- unlimited drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic
- the opporunity to connect with like-minded travelers. (In fact, many long-lasting friendships have started during our shared cruises!)
- friendly and professional service – before, during, and after your cruise
- being treated like friends visiting our home, rather than passengers on a boat trip
Each shared cruise is limited to a maximum of 8 guests to maximize comfort and personal attention.

Cruise Kekova in September

We were delighted to finally welcome some guests aboard to start the 2021 cruise season!See Cruise Details
The Pandemic meant our 2020 season didn't quite turn out as planned, and we were able to reschedule all shared cruises to 2021 to minimize risk to our guests and crew.
