1) WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR KIDS IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU! This is rule no.1!

I remember when I was making arrangements for my gulet charter in Turkey several years ago. I was traveling with my family of 2 children (4 and 9 years old) and as I remember the last worry on my mind at that time was NOT my own comfort.

I worried the most about:

– Will it be safe for kids?

– Does the crew speak English

– Do they have salon with DVD player so kids can watch cartoon while we cruise

– Do they have canoe and dinghy which are lots of fun for kids

– Where will we cruise so that they will be happy

What happened to the planning, when our biggest worry was not to run out of beer!? 🙂

If you are traveling with children it is a completely different “game” rather when NOT TRAVELING with children.

2) IF YOU HAVE KIDS THIS ARE THE THINGS TO SOLVE BEFORE THE START OF YOUR CRUISE!

If you have small kids your biggest worries should be safety on board, English speaking and patient crew, some nice small water sports equipment, the flexibility of the chef and itinerary with lots of nice beaches for small kids.

If you have teenagers your ONLY WORRY IS that they will be bored!?! So you should plan ahead! If you manage to make your teenagers busy and happy – you will be even happier. So concentrate on lots of water sports (adrenaline), the possibility for the kids to go out of the gulet every now or then and great bays for snorkeling and explorations. Maybe it looks like teens nowadays can not really be impressed with nature, but it is not true. If you take them to the right places they will swim in the sea again in the same way they did 10 years ago.

3) DIFFERENT GULETS ARE FOR DIFFERENT TYPE OF PEOPLE!

We have described this very well in our representational movie (this is one of the most important benefits of Cruising with Goolets)

“Not all gulets are for all people!” 

 

 

Imagine incredibly modern gulet and a stressed out gulet owner when younger kids will jump on deck and play hide and seek in his new kitchen?!

Now imagine a nice gulet with the safety net, large salon, easy going and nice family friendly crew used to cruise with families with a crazy party group that wishes to party all night long!?!

If you find the perfect crew, gulet and itinerary for your group you will have the best time ever!

If you transfer this knowledge to Turkey Cruisesit gets even more important.

In Turkey, you have more than 1.000 gulets for charter! The choices can be a bit overwhelming but if you know what you are looking for and if you know where to look – YOU WILL HAVE A WINNING COMBINATION!

4) PERFECT FORMULA FOR A PERFECT TURKEY CRUISES IF YOU HAVE KIDS!

The formula is very simple:

“HAPPY KIDS = HAPPY WIFE  = HAPPY HUSBAND = HAPPY HOLIDAYS FOR EVERYBODY”!

Translation:

HAPPY KIDS = kids that are occupied, safe, happy, not hungry and tired from all the activities at nine o clock in the evening are happy kids!

HAPPY WIFE = every heard of the saying HAPPY WIFE = HAPPY LIFE? This sure works also on your Turkey cruise holidays! If kids will be happy this means 1 thing less for their mothers to think about and this means much happier life for them.

HAPPY HUSBAND = occupied kids & happy wife? The husbands’ mission is accomplished and this means he can also truly enjoy his holidays…Happy life!

Everybody happy!

We have put all this info into a nice brochure (Gulet cruise tips) where you will find out everything about what should be important for you during your Turkey cruise holidays.
