Manila Bay Dining Cruise

On a Saturday - dinner with my college friends day! After strolling Baywalk to death, we ended up cruising!

Prestige Cruise offers a 1.5 hours cruise at Manila Bay. It is located at Harbour Square, CCP Complex. Cruise rates are P250 for cruise alone and P495 for cruise with dinner.

Dont expect much please. The ferry is not classy at all! Plain fun and bonding it is! We availed the 7:45pm schedule but as early as 7pm passengers can already board. I suggest board early so you can choose the area of you want.

Capacity of the ferry is for 50pax only. I noticed that there are only 10 of us in that batch who are Pinoy. All others are Asian visitors. Wow, andami pa din nating bisita despite the crisis. Im happy they're loving Pinas like we do!

Now, the food. The waiters served Mini Tacos. Then Cream of Mushroom soup with Asparagus. For the main course, Grilled Salmon with buttered vegetable. And cupcake.

the so so dinner!

Again, dont expect too much. Best to cruise when you're hungry enough to eat anything served infront of you. Believe me, this works!

after the so-so dinner

I think more people prefer the 5:45pm sked, the best time for the sunset. But luckily for us, we have some views to enjoy too. The fireworks from Intramuros (probably there's a wedding), after a couple of minutes, the fireworks from Mall of Asia fascinated the passengers.

The different views ...

Pier1 or The Jumbo Floating Resto?

There is a local band who performs inside. 2 girls are singing Korean/Taiwanese/Japanese/Pinoy songs. Impressive! Asian visitors sang along loudly with them. Later on I talked to the singers, and found out that they dont even know what they're singin. But still, they amazed me!

The Asian moms stood up and walked to the center which turned to be their dance floor. Their dance steps are hilarious! But they seem to enjoy dancing so let them enjoy the night.

the partying asian people

After 5 or 6 foreign songs, we realized that it was a dinner cruise with cultural show! This cruise is never good for couples. This is not the place to date, ok? But for fun and experience, try this! Something new yet cheap.

Hi, Chyng.

Siguro sa Feb, they will dress that ship base sa okasyon. Hehehe. Maganda din siguro jan sumakay before sunrise. Sana lang di maamoy ang dagat.

Kung ganito nga ang scenes, ok ito pangbarkada. Hehehe.

KRIS JASPER said...

Im just wondering if the fireworks everyday?

Hala. Na-try na din namin to ni BF way back when. Exact same menu pa nga ata. Hahahaha!

And yes, I'm going to agree with you that the food was just so-so. Nakakatawa pa nung nagtry kami nito, the waves were sloshing the boat (and our food about). Napuntahan ata ng tubig dagat yung food namin. :/

(sorry, my nth comment in your blog. It's just that you write about places so close to me. And we have absolutely the same values on tipid dates and cheap eats. :P )
