Tipping on a Gulet Cruise

Should I tip? How much should I tip?

While tips are not required, they are customary and genuinely appreciated by our hardworking crew. Gratuity amounts are at your discretion, but 10% to 15% of the charter price is standard for exemplary service on a gulet cruise. (Unlike larger cruise lines, gratuities are not included in our charter pricing.)

If you feel a tip (“bahşiş" in Turkish) is warranted, you may give it to Captain Oktay at the conclusion of the cruise and he will distribute it to the crew on your behalf.
