LIFE ON BOARD
Our guests often ask how day by day life looks on the gulet. Everything on the cruise is adjusted to your preferences and wishes and we all try to make your cruise as enjoyable as possible, organizing additional activities, trips, tours and anything you like to be an addition to your vacation.
The cruise starts on Saturday afternoon, after you check in and settle into cabins, the gulet cruises to your first destination. Dinner is served on the yacht and you have free time to sightseeing. The next morning, breakfast is served at the stern deck and you start sailing towards the next island. Gulet stops in some nice bay, where you spend the day swimming, sun tanning, doing water sports and having lunch. Late afternoon, gulet sails to the port (or can also stay on anchor, near the port) and you can visit the town, have dinner or have organized trip.
Every day, different island is visited, which makes this type of vacation the most adventurous and interesting.
Depending on your preferences, the cruise can be easy going or active or combination of everything.
Indoor areas of a gulet are more spacious than on other yachs. Cabins are usually bigger and equipped with all the facilities for your comfortable stay. Every cabin is air conditioned and with en suite bathroom. There is enough storage space as well.
Depending on the size of a gulet, there might be 3-8 cabins. Some gulets have Master cabins and most of them have cabins with queen size bed or twin beds.
Some gulets preserved the original look of the cabins but some did remodeling and upgraded the cabins with more elegant or classy design. The most important is that all of them are regularly maintained and more value is added every year.
Cabins are cleaned every day and towels/bed linen changed.
Gulets are the yachts with the most attractive outdoor areas. Everything is adjusted to the needs of the guests and to as much enjoyment as possible.
The main area is stern deck, where there is a big dining table and comfortable, sun padded leisure sofa, that stretches throughout the beam. This area is always shaded, for more pleasant dining and leisure.
The sun bathing mattresses are on the bow deck and this is very popular area for socializing with your friends.
