Manila Bay Sunset Cruise and Dinner Treat For Your Loved Ones This Valentines

Want to go on a sunset cruise and dinner with a chance to see spectacular fireworks with Sun Cruises? No need to book a flight nor take an overnight bus ride, all you need to do is go to Esplanade Seaside Terminal near SM MOA. Last weekend, I and blogger friends were treated with a super smooth sailing escapade along SM by the bay for an hour and a half. We actually did not noticed the time because we were busy enjoying each other's company over good food and we were serenaded with our favorite love songs from a band!  

Aboard a two-floor small yacht, we were blessed with a very good weather. As a matter of fact, I was so thankful to see another magical and golden sunset from the horizon. This reminds me of a similar sunset cruise I did in Phnom Penh and Bangkok many years ago. Yes, it was a short but sweet dinner cruise tour along Manila bay but it brought me so much comfort from the cold breeze of the air hitting our face to seeing the shadows of Manila's prominent skyscrapers. It is such a wonderful sight to see the dazzling lights from the lights of different colors that come from these tall buildings!

Manila Bay Sunset and Dinner Cruise Route
From Seaside Esplanade, the yacht passed by H2O Hotel, Solaire Hotel then back to SM MOA. Actually without darkness, this Manila bay cruise tour package is your chance also to see other historical sights and famous attractions nearby: Malate Church, 1322 Golden Empire Tower, Embassy of USA, Manila Ocean Park, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, Manila Yacht Club, Cultural Center of the Philippines and Folk Arts Theater.


Manila Bay Sunset and Dinner Cruise Food
We were served with very delicious five-course buffet meal: fish fillet with zesty lime sauce, baked chicken with pepper sauce, roast pork with balsamic sauce, callos and fresh vegetable salad in creamy dressing. Pardon for not being able to take photos of all these food because I was too preoccupied chatting with my fellow blogger friends whom I haven't seen for a while. We were asked what kind of drinks we want: wine, canned fruit juices or water. I chose a glass of chilled red wine to give justice to the great food I was eating.

Manila Bay Sunset and Dinner Cruise Fireworks Display
On the way to back to Seaside Terminal of Esplanade, we witnessed a colorful display of fireworks from MOA for 5-10 minutes. We were lucky because this only happens every Friday and Saturday! Currently seated, we rushed to the side of the yacht that gives the best view of the fireworks for a quick photoshoot of us holding a glass of our Cabernet Sauvignon.  Mission accomplished! We managed to have a few great photos of us smiling with a background of fireworks in full bloom!

I was able to ask one of the guys who are part of running this yacht. He said they follow very high standards when it comes to the safety of this Manila cruise tour. In every trip, 6 people form as a team to make sure that the guests will experience a very good cruise experience. This team is made of one Captain, one Chief Engineer, one Desk Officer, one Oiler and two Able Body Seaman.

Manila Bay Sunset Cruise TOUR PACKAGE 2019

Regarding my personal view, I think this yacht needs a retouch. The words "cruise" and "yacht" always meant a bit of luxury so I would suggest to maybe change the type of chairs or tables that reflect this kind of activity. Also, the walls could be painted with live colors and maybe change the type of decors they have. The outside look of M/V Spirit of Manila was very impressive so I think it would be also nice to compliment the look inside. Having said this, if you're looking for a budget kind of cruise, this is perfect. Hope to do a Manila bay dinner cruise with Sun Cruises soon with my family!
