An 8 day gulet charter can take place just about anywhere along the Turkish Riviera. Although the reasons may be obvious why one should book a gulet cruise, there may possibly be more based on personal experience.
First of all, what is a gulet? Well put simply it’s a wooden Turkish yacht. Expanding on this, a gulet is a magnificent vessel designed to spoil and pamper her guests on a Gulet charter holiday along the shores of the Turkish Mediterranean. For the most part, gulets are quite large in size, and introduce their elegance and spaciousness once you step on board – which can be overwhelming at first. However gulets do come in a variety of sizes, and filled with many luxuries to make your gulet holidays not only comfortable but also rewarding.
Many of the yacht charter itineraries last for 8 days and 7 nights. The most common embarkation points are from Marmaris, Bodrum, Fethiye and Greece. The same applies to disembarkation. While some guest groups charter a gulet for 8 days, during the cruise, they sometimes decide to not take the full course and stay anchored at a habor which they have found comfortable spending the rest of their vacation at. There may be many reasons for this but one of the most often favored reason is the nighttime entertainment on land or possibly that the bay is isolated, quiet and very private without any outside attractions to disturb the peace for the remainder of their gulet holidays at sea.
There are quite a few routes to choose from but guests can also plan with the captain, their own custom itinerary provided that the gulet charter booking is for the whole gulet and not a cabin charter; as cabin charter itineraries are pre-set in advance and offer no choice in itinerary for a specific gulet scheduled to take that route.
Amongst the many reasons why, personal or otherwise, spending a unique holiday experience, renting a gulet sailboat and cruise the Mediterranean; the reasons that stand out the most are:
There are no set schedules to follow. No long line ups at mealtimes. Menu choices are what you like and not what has been prepared. The pool hasn’t any cut off hours – the sea is yours for whenever you wish and however you wish to enjoy it! There are always sunning mats available so that you do not need to place your towel on it at the crack of dawn to reserve it.
The gulet boat is yours for your holiday and the security is always on duty with the crew on board within steps away. You are served personally and so the service is not shared with an overcrowded group of other guests.
The gulet charter cruise is designed with you in mind. It has been prepared with your requirements and expectations from the time you reserve and establish your plans with your gulet charter agent.
With all sorts of holiday packages available, a rewarding holiday is one that is created to serve its purpose by providing you all the pleasures that has been well deserved due all the stress, hustle and bustle of your normal everyday life at home and work.
When a yacht charter is booked as a group, the end result doesn’t place a huge hole in the wallet. Also choosing the off peak season while the weather is still quite favorable for gulet cruise holiday can make the budget stretch even further. These are the months of May and June; as well, October and November.
Reading about history can be interesting and peak the interest to know that there were once great wonders around the world to now know about. However living the history on a Blue cruise exploration to the many ancient cities that once were the steps of Alexander the Great, Anthony and Cleopatra, and King Midas is a whole new and unique experience altogether.
Visiting a country such as Turkey for the first time, learning its culture and tasting its cuisine can be an exciting experience. You can stay at a hotel and discover these newly distinguished attributes about a foreign country. Be that as it may, a gulet charter in Turkey or Greece is the ultimate lifetime experience.
From the moment of embarkation, each day is different from the previous. Every port or habour exhibits a contrasting display of personality and charm. While quiet and inviting bays and coves render an exclusive collage of breathtaking canvas. The exploration and discoveries combined, each tell a tale of its own… bringing forth memories to share and relive for a lifetime.
Convinced that that these are the ingredients for the Blue Cruise journey to take this Spring, Summer or Fall, the next step is to book it early and start reaping the rewards.
