Another main feature of a gulet cruise is the food. Usually cruises are fully catered, with delicious fresh food being provided by the cook from a tiny galley kitchen. Typical main meals are fish or grilled meat with a local salad. Drinks, with some exceptions for tea, coffee and water, are generally served from an honesty bar.
In addition to the cook there are usually at least two other crew members: the boat captain and a crewman. Between them the crew look after all aspects of your cruise. The itinerary is usually pre-set but the captain may vary this depending on local factors, including the weather. Because of the distances travelled, even fully rigged gulets generally travel under motor.
Gulet cruises are a wonderfully informal style of holiday: life on board is relaxed and there are generally few rules apart from those that ensure that the holiday runs smoothly. These holidays can be enjoyed from early May through to the beginning of November, and although July and August can be particularly hot, you are never far from a cooling swim. A good itinerary will have a balance between relaxing, swimming and exploring as much of this impressive coastline as possible.
