- 2010 was earlier, i.e. Sunset cruise. 2009 was an evening cruise
- 2010 had a buffet dinner while 2009 had a 5-course meal promptly prepared by a pro chef
- 2009 had a string quartet playing love songs while 2010 had an ipod plugged to the yacht sound system playing chill-out music
The definite edge of this year's cruise was the sunset, which the missus had been anticipating to witness for quite a while now.
It's interesting to note that one of our dates before the missus answered me in the year 2000 was on a boat cruise in Manila Bay as well (the more-affordable kind). We enjoyed the sunset there as well. Afterwards, we proceeded to Sofitel for coffee, which was how we ended up coincidentally this year.
The yacht cruise costs P2,000.00/person. Quite expensive but if you compare it with hotel dinners you'd practically end up spending the same amount. The plus-side here is obviously the romance the cruise brings.
