What Type Of Dishes Are Available On A Turkish Gulet Cruise?
When you have decided on a Turkish gulet cruise, among the preparations made are provisions, prior to your arrival to the boat. Usually you will have three options to consider for your meals. There is a Standard Chef’s menu, an Exclusive full board menu and a shopping list where you choose the foods, and other groceries you wish to buy. However a very high choice is the Standard menu or Exclusive menu. It’s easier to choose a menu than to try and figure out what you need of how much during a one week blue cruise holiday. Yacht agents and boat crews have done this hundreds and thousands of times that its actually quite easy to place the order for these items according to the count on board. Not only that, all the chefs or cooks are well experienced in preparing dishes from the Turkish kitchen. So to answer the question, yes, you will be served Mediterranean and/or Aegean Turkish dishes for your gulet menu on board.
The difference between the two menus is that there is more variety in dishes and deserts in the Exclusive full board than the Standard menu. However if you are not too fussy about variety, the most popular one of the two is the Standard. Contained in this menu are dishes either grilled or barbeque poultry, fish and meats. You will also find a fresh selection of Turkish garden green salads, different kinds of vegetable casseroles, and plenty of fruit plates of ones that are in season. On some gulets, the chef, captain or owner will add a few surprise delights as well. 🙂
The Exclusive menu is a bit more in price, however it offers more variety and different dishes and salad variety. Rather than a Turkish garden green salad, you will find Octopus salad, and Greek salad as alternatives. The appetizer choices are many as well.
You can do your own shopping too for your gulet cruise in Turkey. What happens in that case is the agent sends a list, you choose which items you wish to buy and how much of them, as well as other provisions that you will need during your holiday. The payment is made with your first payment of the yacht, then crew purchases and stocks the boat before you arrive so that all items are already there for you upon your arrival.
The only part that is not included in any one of these menus are drinks – whether soft drinks or alcohol. That is another list that you will need to choose from or list.
