Prestige Cruise: Prestigious Buffet Or Not?

If I have reviewed airline meals before, then it's only just that I should review cruise meals too.  I was so excited for our first Tsinoy Foodies cruise buffet that when I saw Metrodeal selling a voucher for Manila Bay Cruise with a Buffet by Prestige Cruise at a cost of 250 php, we instantly took the bait.

Finding the Prestige Cruises Inc. tent and registering was easy.  We got aboard on time with the rest.

First Level
The Prestige Cruise boat had three levels.  We had to pay an extra 100 php each just to be on the top most level but the privacy was what we wanted.  Aside from us there were only two other tables there. 

I'm always starstruck by the beauty of nature so I really enjoyed the view.

Although there were parts in the cruise where it was just darkness, we were fortunate to cruise during Christmas time so we enjoyed the sights of Christmas lights and fireworks from SM Mall of Asia.

Although the buffet table is located at the first level, we along with the two other tables on the top level were called down ahead of others from beneath for the buffet.

So here's what I got...

There were around three viands and a fresh salad.  If I could describe them all in one word then it would be... "Bland".  It felt like eating hospital food to me.  On the other hand, fellow Tsinoy Foodies Kurt, thought it was better than eating at street side canteens.

The soup tastes like it's made from instant mix but a bit diluted. 

Our desserts were delivered by our kind server who awe also have to thank for our photographs.  It looked familiar doesn't it?  It's brownies from Brownies Unlimited (see previous entry).  

Our server also provided us with a glass of water which I couldn't drink because it tasted funny.  Kurt said it tasted like tap water.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Prestige Cruise buffet is not worth trying even if its free.  I suggest you skip it and enjoy the cruise doing something else instead.  It will also spare you some cash by not availing it.
