Here is a week-long Blue Cruise experience, the 7-Day Fethiye Kekova Blue Cruise. A perfect choice to cruise from Fethiye to Kekova and see the wonders of nature in between. A crewed cabin charter is a hire of cabin space on a yacht with single, double, or triple accommodation. The Gulet is with the captain and crew, for a specific period of time. There are 7-8 cabins each gulet. The route of the cruise is fixed, as are the ports of embarkation and disembarkation. The charter fee does include the cost of food, preparation, and service. On board, you will enjoy the delicious meals prepared with care by our cook, who will serve you typical local Turkish dishes which are as much a feast to look upon as they are to taste. Cabin cruises are designed for people who wish to make their holiday a totally new experience alongside new friends. Such cruises are often multi-national affairs, which makes them especially interesting.
