What to bring aboard

Below you can find detailed information about what to bring aboard with you.

Life aboard one of our vessels is a relaxing affair, and we don’t believe in unnecessary formality. Packing is therefore fairly straightforward; simply pack the clothes that you feel most comfortable in.

If you’re going ashore for dinner, or you and your friends fancy having a couple of more formal dinners aboard one of our vessels, it might be wise to pack a suit, black tie, or evening gown. Aside from this eventuality, less is certainly more when it comes to packing for your cruise.

Here is a list of some suggested items that you may like to bring aboard:

  • A couple of pairs of shoes. Bring at least one pair which is suitable for walking long distances, while ashore.
  • The only slightly quirky recommendation we would make is to bring a pair of slippers with you. We ask passengers not to wear outdoor shoes aboard our boats, as dirt can damage the finish on our wooden floors.
  • A sun hat to shelter you from the strong, Turkish sun.
  • A couple of changes of shorts.
  • Something to swim in; swimming shorts or a swimming costume.
  • Some T-shirts, a short-sleeved linen shirt, or a thin, long sleeved shirt.
  • Long trousers. Although formal dress is not expected in the evenings, it may just be nice to get out of your shorts for a while.
  • Any formal wear that you decide to bring.
  • A thick jumper, just in case the sea air gets a little chilly.
  • A lightweight, waterproof jacket.
  • Sun cream and after sun.
  • A quality pair of sunglasses; you may not think that you need them, but being exposed to the strong sun all day can be enough to give you a headache if you’re not careful.
  • A camera.
  • Any entertainment that you would like to bring. This may include personal music players, books, games, or a computer (we have Wi-Fi aboard).
  • Any medicines that you require.

There is no need to concern yourself with bringing towels. One hand towel may be useful, but we will provide towels for drying yourself after swimming. As a general rule, if you’re unsure whether you need to bring something, leave it behind. The lighter you pack the more free space that you will have inside your cabin.
