This route is perfect for families, where several generations traveling together.

Children will get lots of swimming and be enjoying the sun.

Their parents will be happy because they will be able to check several different towns and will be able to take a walk around several towns.

And grandparents will enjoy it because it is laid back cruise with not stress and even some archaeological sites, monasteries and history lessons to be experienced.

This is not a day – by day route description. It is merely an example of the places you can see inside a single week.

The best part about the Blue Cruise holidays is that the routes are flexible. If you wish to stay at some place for more days or if you do not like some town, you can just change it with the captain and go to next destination.

To make it simple, here are some of the places you will experience.

1) You can start the cruise in Bodrum. Very interesting for shopping (lots of stores) and great for sightseeing (castle and archaeological sites). One of the most interesting towns in Turkey.


2) Turkey is very beautiful however if you wish to explore more towns, islands and ports I suggest you to go and have a trip to Greece islands.

They are very interesting to explore.

A great thing about Greece is you can leave the gulet every evening and go try out local taverns or get lost in old city centers.

Lots of this islands and towns also offer extra trips around the island.

If in the meantime you have enough of the ports you can just go away from it all and drop an anchor in some isolated bay.

Here are a couple of examples of Greece Islands.

Kos Island

Symi Island


Nisyros island


Rhodes Island

This is only 1 part of the cruise. As mentioned above, one of the best things to do with gulets is to anchor in an isolated bay and enjoy easy going dinner under millions of stars – on the board of your gulet.

There is also time for some archaeological sightseeing (if you would be interested of course). You can check this out on island Kos for example.

And talking about extra trips. Would it be interesting for you to check out this volcano on Nisyros?

During the day, you also have lots of time for swimming and relaxing. Here are 2 examples out of many others (Bencik bay and Dirsek Buku).
