    The 2Go Ferry departs the North Harbor, last time I checked.

    How did he get to Manila? I'm pretty sure he wasn't born there.

    2go travel run a ship weekly from/to Dumaguete, usually st michael the archangel.
    This is the only ferry connection direct between the two cities.

    Meals in the Executive dining area leaves much to be desired
    You are correct Sir I made the trip last year thank god I only booked one way and yes I had the stateroom, meals included if you can call one chicken drumstick and a cup of rice a meal, served while listening to the drunken locals in the adjoining videoke bar. Executive dining area me thinks not.

    The ferries here are a joke. Crap food, cramp beds, tiny toilets (doubt he would fit inside one), filthy hallways and the noise.

    Let him do one hour on a plane and just have him ask for a front row seat where he has more leg room to stretch out.

    I'm pretty sure that doesn't have anything to do with leaving Manila to come here.

    However, they are in the air as I type this, flying business class from Rome. If he would rather have the experience of taking a 24 hour Ferry vs a 1 hour Flight, I don't care and don't see why others would either.

    I am giving him the options, which one he chooses is up to him. (He likes cruising and is leaning towards the Ferry. I am not recommending a choice, although I would/have chosen flying every time)

    When I travelled, they had a buffet style and also a menu you could order from. What you are describing sounds like the the cafeteria on the lower deck. The dining room I was talking about is on the third deck and does have limited seating.

    No sir believe me I was in the so called Executive dining area with 5 of my friends who were equally as disappointed as I was.
