We really enjoyed our night cruise on Manila Bay. The food was good and the fireworks show as spectacular.

Very affordable not to be missed Sunset Cruise. The hotel pick up guides are very friendly and knowledgeable,the cruise itself is relaxing seeing the city lights at night and the onboard entertainment and food is good. 10/10

Our Guide Richard I think was his name was the greatest guide. He did an excellent job and made us feel very important and appreciated all the way thru the process, The driver was 30 minutes late arriving to pick us up and wasnt very friendly but the guide made up for it and was very professional. the cruise was awesome, very well planned and execute to perfection. Food was great, staff was great, music was a little loud when sitting upstairs but was tolerable. it was hard to talk and have a conversation with the music so loud. the sights and whole trip was excellent and will definitely do it again when in manila. I would recommend the cruise to anyone in the manila area. well worth the trip. fares were reasonable. 5 stars for sure. Thanks for a memorable evening.

Pick up was on time. Tour guide was good but there was a lot of waiting time between arriving at the dock and leaving for the cruise. We had a great top level view. The stench though from the River was not nice at all but abated as we left the shore. Meal was fine. Views great. Entertainment was pleasant - a duo. This was a great trip which we enjoyed and would recommend. Very relaxing

The tour was great,my family and I enjoyed the sunset and took memorable pictures. The boat ride provide an opportunity to see the city from the water. The food was well served and the music was impressive.
Overall we had a great evening /night, except that there wasn and #39;t a big crowd.

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.

It was not a 3 hour cruise, it was about 1.5 hours. No wine or alcohol. Buffet, going up and down steps with both hands full of dinnerware with boat moving. Tricky for a 70 year old guy but they have a great crew who helped. Also, it was 58 each but Sun Cruises actually only charges 650 pesos if you go directly to the terminal. That's about 13 US dollars. Really enjoyed the views and the meal was nice.

You should have told the truth about the tour. Your ad said 3 hour tour. We were only on the water for 1 hour and 10 mins. The live music was for only 1/2 hour. The boat only goes in circle for most of the trip. Good thing the drivers that fetch us were very friendly. I would still have booked the cruise, even knowing the truth. I only wish you would have been HONEST in your ad.

Would have liked to have been on the top, but a private party took the top over. Food was good and plentiful. Being stuck down stairs was not fun.

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.

Dinner Cruise didn't meet expectations.
Around the wharf, the Manila Bay stank.
They went around in circles in the boat for only 90 minutes of a 3 hour cruise.
The live music was only 3 songs. Very poor.
The food was ordinary.
Overall .... not good value for money!

Thanks so much for allowing me this option to let you now about this. The bus picked me up on time they were perfect. However, the Cruise It is not worth it. I am very disappointed with the food, the boat, the furniture at the boat tables and chairs old and dirty, the cleaning of the boat, silverware was dirty , the presentation was not nice at all. When the waiter offered me and served me water the water was dirty!! with white things floating and people were drinking it, they didn't notice! That was completely gross. The food was horrible and cold. OMG the chicken had parts of the chicken that you are not supposed to serve! or eat! The smell of the bay is horrible. It smells to bathroom or wet chicken. Unfortunately I was expecting a sunset but there were too many clouds so that was bad luck. That I understand . But I was expecting a better experience in terms of the cruise based on the price and how it is described . That cruise doesn't definitely worth what I paid. You want an advice. Don't take this tour. Better to walk in the sidewalk for the sunset with your own snacks but remember that the smell will disappoint you a lot. Too much contamination in the air and water : I do recommend other areas in Philippines though.

The bay smell so bad .... They need to offer Variety of food choices when booked (for a price, let say Steak or lobster Dinner).
