Cruises to Manila?
 
I never see any thing about cruise to the Phillippines and Manila. Are there cruise ships that visit ports in the Phillippines?
We have always wanted to visit that area and would love doing it by ship.
If you know of any cruises there let us know.
Thanks,

Tom Tom

We are stopping in Manilla in mid-March. Our cruise leaves from Sydney and ends in Beijing (Tianjin). I have always wanted to see Correigador [sp} and my wife is taking a tour of Manilla.

A lot of world cruises stop in Manilla; it is a chance for many crew to see their families. When friends have sailed this route before, they all tell their stewardesses that they don't need cleaning that day.

There are many cruises available in Manila. You can check them on net. But I love your idea of cruising. Believe me you will find some sweet memories while cruising. All the best for your journey.

I do not remember very many great cruises around the Philippines, but I know some cruise lines stop briefly, but you can jump onboard a ship almost anytime. We visited the Philippines a few years ago to visit a friend that lives there. We rode a ferry from Manila down to Dumaguete and were aboard the ship for about 24 hours.

You would not classify it as a cruise. No luxury was involved. Meals were very basic. The only entertainment was the television and the water. We saw many day cruises on small vessels, but not many offers for longer cruises. There is one cruise we have looked at a few times that goes from Hong Kong to Manila and takes about 3 days, but I do not remember the cruise line now.
