I already rode a ferry boats to Bataan & Camiguin. Also, some small bancas. And lucky for me, the trip was enjoyable. It was rather short trips so the sights are limited. But I did enjoyed seeing your destination from a far, and seeing it closer and closer.
I would sure love to be on big ships ala-Titanic on longer sea travel. From what I heard, spending time inside the ship is an experience in itself and view would be nice in calm weather. It presents longer time to take enjoy beautiful place, take more photos and simply chat with companions during the journey. I envy those who have provinces to go to during vacation and been accustomed to sea travel.
Barring being sea-sick or rough waters, I pray that I may be able to tour the Philippines via sea travel in the near future.
