Turkey Introduces 'Halal Cruises' for Muslim Travelers
HALALcruises will be Turkey's booming tourism offering in 2017 with ships sailing along the Danube River, the Nile and the Rhine River, exclusively serving religiously observant Muslims.
Everything on board complies with Islamic values: Halal food products, separate spas for men and women, women-friendly swimming pools and sports centers, spacious praying facilities and separate traditional Turkish hamams, or saunas.
Passengers will enjoy cruise tours of two-to-six days and will visit four countries, including Austria and Serbia. The tours, designed to provide three square meals daily for the families, cost between 999 euros and 2,000 euros.
