Turkish cuisine
is considered to be among the finest in the world. On board the
M/S NORTHWIND you will find the finest Turkish dishes, prepared using the freshest vegetables, fish and meats. Our cook is an expert in his field. He will pamper you with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and a three-course dinner in the evening. If you have any special dietary requirements (if there are certain foods you dislike or mustn't eat), simply let him know. He will be able to prepare dishes to suit your exact taste.

Your meals on board: You may choose between Fullboard (3 meals + teatime) price € 30,-
Soft Drinks and alcoholic drinks are extra, we can buy them at supermarket prices and you just pay us the bill plus a service-extra for the crew of only 10%: We think that's a fair offer and all previous guest did appreciate that very much.
Meals are mainly served on deck under the awning which protects you from the sun. In cooler months, our guests dine in the deck salon.

Let's be honest about air-condition on gullets
There is nearly none of the gullet charter-companies who tells you the truth about the use of air-conditition on Gulets. Yes, M/S NORTHWIND has AC and you switch it on indivually. But on a boat the AC can only run when the generator is on, or in a harbor when connectet to 220 Volt. Mainly you are in anchorbays, often next to a neighbor, who doesn't like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it either during the night for example.
So most of the gullets (like we), have come to a gentlemens agreement not to disturb eachother - AC can be used on the most of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours to cool down your cabin.
