I can't rate this tour since there was bad weather on the night of our tour. Fortunately, our party was offered a dinner with cultural show which was absolutely great. Dinner at Zamboanga Restaurant was delicious and everyone was very polite and helpful. Maybe next time I will be able to make the cruise. I will rate the Zamboanga Restaurant and Traditional Cultural Show instead since I have to rate something to submit my review.
Very disappointing. The information provided by Viator upon which my booking was based was seriously flawed. False, even. My booking was for a 5:30pm start, but there is no such start time. It was a 4:30 start and this "sunset" cruise was over and back to shore again before sunset. Furthermore, the stated sites to be seen included the Mall Of Asia from Manila Bay, yet the cruise didn't even go anywhere near there. In fact, it went in the opposite direction altogether.
If it wasn't for the broken promises and the unfulfilled expectations, it would have been a pleasant enough little cruise, but it certainly was NOT what I booked or paid for. Frankly, I feel very ripped off.
Whose fault was it? Probably not Sun Cruises themselves. Their dockside signage of departure signs looks like it has been up on display for years, so that means either Brown's Travel (through whom Viator made the booking), or Viator themselves.
Whoever it was should have the moral conscience to send me at least a 50% refund, because what I got was NOTHING like what I promised.
My family's experience of the recent boat trip is not so pleasant. The service car that picked up and brought us back to the hotel from our boat trip which is apparently too old and needs to be junked. Also, the food that was served to us is really not good, aside from being not sufficient. Before the boat departs, we heard the boat captain shouting at and have arguments with some boat riders who were unable to board the boat for reasons which we do not know. Such shouting should not have happend in front of the many other boat riders on board. For these reasons, we are not sure if we will be in a position to recommend this to our friends. Sorry for our comments but we are just being honest about it.
