Advice when it comes to food – Don’t save money. If you are on a budget, we always recommend booking a 3-star Gulet and choosing 4-star food, rather than the other way around. Five years after your cruise, you will not remember the cabin where you slept. But you will remember the food you had. Never save money on food. This excellent food with the added pleasure of dining on your Gulet’s aft deck makes a pleasurable culinary experience and a memorable part of your charter Gulet holidays. You enjoy your meals on a large dining table on the spacious aft deck of the Gulet, always in the shade and overlooking the bay, the sea, and other beautiful scenic. Meals are always a highlight on board and lots of fun, especially when the entire group gets together. Food is almost never served in the salon. This happens only if the weather is terribly bad, which is incredibly rare in Turkey between May and October. In fact, food and wine taste even better when enjoyed in the open air on deck overlooking a stunning Mediterranean bay under the stars at night.
Gulets are provisioned early in the morning by our local team, using only local produce fresh ingredients which are mostly organic, and all meals are prepared by your own chef on board for the ultimate alfresco dining experience. Please be sure to inform us of any special dietary requirements you may have so that the chef can prepare accordingly.
Perhaps, the most important thing about a Gulet charter is that most of the Gulets allow you to bring drinks or alcoholic beverages at no fee. Just some charter Gulets have bar sales; there, you are not allowed to bring your own drinks on board. However, if there is no bar, feel free to bring as much drink as you want. Simply prepare your preference list including beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, that you would like to stock on board and it will be taken care of. If you are interested in trying a selection of locally produced premium wine, or top shelf champagnes from around the globe, just let us know. You’ll pay the local supermarket price.
You are free to decide on the menu depending on your preferences. The provisioning is made in advance according to your wishes or your special dietary requirements and health conditions, such as gluten-free, and diabetes foods. This is something we agree about with our guests much before the cruising begins – all the guest are asked to fill in the preference list.
During the cruise, depending on your itinerary, provisioning stock up on food and drink can also be made at harbors along the route. Our team will assist to organize your provisioning. Excellent and very best service is the first aim on board of our Gulet Charter Collection.
Just relax and enjoy
