World Dream

While  the World Dream arrived today,

the Celebrity Millennium left yesterday for


Commonly a cruise stays for just one day.

Some hotel groups on the island obviosly have cooperations with the cruises. So could the sea voyagers of Celebrity Millennium, rest on beach beds belonging to the Regency Hotel. The World Dream cooperates with Paradise Garden. Of course, all these Hotels and Cruises are Chinese owned.

Must a sea voyager not wonder sometimes, why his cruise made port at one of the most crowded island in the Philippines, if there are more than 7000 beautiful islands at choice? What’s more, since all the best facilities needed, are available on board?

Cruise Boracay

Since a few years cruise ships started to drop anker off the coast of Boracay. I Cruisesalways wonder why cruisers who pay a lot of money for a cruise, want to come to an overcrowded island like this when they could choose from a wide range of more than 7000 fantastic pristine islands in the Philippines. Here on this island is almost nothing authentic anymore. It’s just an open air mall with hardly anything special to offer.  What it has to offer however, are a lot of environmental issues. At the latest since Mc Donalds & Co arrived, the island feeling has reduced to a mere walk on the “famous” White Beach, which nowadays is more green than white because of the algea investation.

Apparently the cruisers visit an island where the authoroties don’t pay much attention to nature but pay a lot of attention to mass tourism which is obviously good for the statistics and their pockets. So it is for the cruise ship company. For them Boracay is a suitable stop where they can cheaply dump there garbage and their tourists for a day.
