Dinner Cruise at Manila Bay

Once again, Mr. Ivan Henares and Mr. Bobby Aquino invited the bloggers to this magnificent dinner cruise experience over Manila Bay. This is again sponsored by Sun Cruises.

The Dinner Cruise

For only P550, one can enjoy a dinner aboard the Sun Cruises' M/V Spirit of Manila while being embraced by the cool breeze coming from the South China Sea. A perfect getaway for families, barkadas, and lovers too. You can view from here the towering buildings of Ermita and Makati Business District, along with Manila's fine buildings like the GSIS and Manila Film Center. The cruise will also sail near the Asia's third largest mall, the Mall of Asia.

Apart from the city structures, people aboard can also witness the infamous Manila Bay Sunset while enjoying the live music being performed by an acoustic duo.

A Moment with PTB

The Pinoy Travel Bloggers, probably still full from the buffet lunch we had at Corregidor, did not turn down the invite of Mr. Bobby Aquino. Who would not want this free great dinner cruise?! booyeah!

Of course we enjoyed eating again while chatting and listening to the live music. We also had an instant photography lesson from sir Ian de la Peña and cleaning-the-lens-with-a-lens-pen demo from sir Leo Reyman. When the sun was about to set, everyone was eager to get its nice shot. We really had a great time there.

The dinner cruise lasted for about an hour and 30 minutes.

Before sir Ivan Henares left, we had a final group picture with him and expressed to him our deepest and warmest gratitude.

Some of us, including me, went home early while other bloggers still had a coffee at starbucks (wow rich pips).

eto ang mga nakulimbat ko from the Corregidor trip.
