Have you ever had any childhood memories of US based TV shows being shown in our local channels? Knots Landing, Melrose Place, Falcon Crest, and Love Boat? Those were the TV shows our parents were glued at while we wrestle with them with rallying cry to switch channel so we can watch our favorite cartoons?
Once we hear Jack Jones singing "Love exciting and new, Come abroad, we're expecting you…. The love boat, soon we'll be making another run..", we know that Mom and Dad are into our singular living room TV set.
Just yesterday, I had that fond recollection(fond because I love the song nonetheless) as I step on the gangplank and the band sang the Love Boat theme.
I was at a Prestige Cruises Inc. yesterday to have my dinner, and more than that, to relish an unimpeded view of the breathtaking Manila Bay sunset.
Located at the harbor square of CCP complex, in between Jumbo Floating restaurant and Gloria Maris, Prestige Cruise has been offering cruise services that includes an hour and a half cruising while you challenge your gastronome with their buffet. The choices were scrimpy but for the price(I got it at 50% off voucher from a group buying site), I could't complain. They have macaroni salad and a roast beef as their main entree. and the rest were DIY salads, chips, and nuts and other hors d'oeures. I normally don't eat rice on a buffet but because their roast beef is so cheesy and tender, I feel like eating it without rice would make me a bit icky. The beef is a lot like tender sections of a bulalo.
If you would like to avail cruising services, I highly suggest booking in the week end 6PM slot so you can also see the spectacular fireworks of the SM Mall of Asia by the sea. Look at me, I acted out like a mutant controlling the fireworks a la gamma ray bursts as I screamed, "behold my powerrrrrr!!!"
It would have been a totally fantastic experience had they not move their boarding place from MOA to CCP Complex, and if they are easy to contact with for reservation(I literally spent one and a half day just to get my reservation).
