2GO

Company Information

Formerly known as Negros Navigation, 2Go Travel is one of the core subsidiaries of Philippine-based 2GO Group Inc. which was established way back in 1949.

This specific line of business specializes in passenger ships and fast ferries and was born out of a merge among the biggest shipping lines in the country: SuperFerry, Cebu Ferries, and SuperCat which became known as SuperFerry and subsequently acquired by Negros Navigation.

They have one of the most modern and expansive fleets of inter-island vessels in the Philippines. As of this time, they have 8 roll on/roll off passenger vessels that can accommodate up to 1800 passengers as well as 10 fast ferries, and 8 cargo vessels. Some of the bigger vessels are complete with hospitality staff, salons, spas and more geared towards giving passengers a comfortable experience while hopping around the archipelago. 2Go Travel currently has 106 outlets all over the country located in kiosks in malls, travel agencies, and various ports.

Routes served by 2GO

Understandably, Manila has got to be the most popular point of origin going to various destinations in the country.

Manila–Cebu

2Go sails for Cebu from Manila 4 times weekly on
FRIDAY, SUNDAY, MONDAY, and WEDNESDAY.

There's a distance of around 416 nautical miles between the Port of Manila and the Port of Cebu so you can expect your travel duration to be about 22 hours. Ticket prices could be anywhere from PHP1500 to PHP2500 depending on your accommodation.

Manila–Cagayan de Oro

Manila to Cagayan de Oro is quite as popular with thrice weekly departures on
THURSDAY, SUNDAY, and WEDNESDAY.

Expect your travel time to last around 48 hours as you cross a distance of 1400 kilometres. Tickets cost anywhere between PHP2000 to PHP3000.

2Go also departs for Zamboanga from Manila once a week every SUNDAY. Travel duration could be as much as 42 hours and tickets available from PHP1200 to PHP6600.

Manila–Bacolod

For Manila to Bacolod route which would take about 27 hours, there are departures every
THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, TUESDAY.

Prepare to shell out anywhere between PHP1800 to PHP5500 for tickets.

Manila–Puerto Princesa

2Go also sails twice weekly from Manila to Puerto Princesa, a voyage that can last 30 hours, with tickets costing between PHP1400 to PHP2500.
Every TUESDAY and FRIDAY.

From Batangas

Aside from Manila, 2Go Travel also operates vessels from the Batangas Port going Caticlan for those who are bound for Boracay as well as to Romblon, Odiongan, and Roxas City.

Batangas to Caticlan, which normally just takes roughly 10 hours, is a really popular route so make sure to book your tickets in advance especially if you are traveling during the summer months.

2Go sails for Caticlan Jetty from Batangas EVERY DAY EXCEPT MONDAY and ticket prices range between PHP1100 to PHP1400 per pax. Aside from these routes, 2Go basically links various destinations in the Philippines from Zamboanga to Manila.

Pros

The overall feedback about traveling with 2Go has always been positive.

If you're not in a hurry then it is a great alternative to flying because it is relatively cheaper and not entirely uncomfortable.

Some of 2GO cabins and accommodation options will remind you of a hotel room complete with private toilet and bath.

No matter what your budget is, there's bound to be an accommodation that would fit your needs and preferences.

Unlike sea travel of long ago, 2GO have really placed a premium on the safety and comfort of their passengers. Prior to boarding, they will ask you to step away from your bags so that bomb sniffing dogs could check them. There are sufficient life jackets on board, lifeboats, an in-house medical unit, a rescue boat and even a few police representatives.

The amenities and facilities are also not to be frowned upon starting from a front office that's again reminiscent of a hotel, along with a 24/7 cafe, a full bar, live entertainment, salons, and spas.

There are also charging stations so you can charge your gadgets if you are not staying in a cabin or staterooms for only about PHP5 per 10 minutes.

Besides the fact that they have made booking online quick and easy, you can also ask to further arrange transfers with their partner companies to make your travel even more convenient.

Cons

Most of the negative reviews are complaints that resulted to a trip being cancelled due to weather conditions. Be ready – de flexible. There are some reports of delays of the vessels without clear information about any specific time or further updates, and no complimentary food, and drinks are offered in such cases.

It sometimes takes as long as 2 month to get the refund if you cancel your tickets paid for by a bank card for any reason.

If you are unable to print your tickets out after booking online you will be asked to pay for your real ticket at the port.

Keep in mind

Keep in mind that once a storm signal number 1 has been raised, maritime vessels including the bigger ones will no longer sail so cancellation is not uncommon especially during the typhoon season. If you are traveling around this time, be prepared to be more flexible in your travel arrangements.

Also, it can get quite hot during the summer so you might want to steer clear of the Super Value non-airconditioned accommodation when traveling at this time.

Travellers Reviews

As can be expected, reviews about 2Go are mixed.

Travellers often report that 2Go vessels are generally cleaner compared to other ferries that they have tried in the country. Toilets are working and the staff are pleasant so they find the entire experience a good value for money and would definitely try it again.

Many point out at the convenience of travelling by night since it can double up as a cheap accommodation plus there is entertainment on board.

Similarly many travellers complain that the air-conditioning in the tourist accommodation is often freezing cold but overall the price and experience are hard to beat.

Overall though, we would say that 2GO have greatly improved the sea travel experience for everyone and is a good plan B when airline tickets are at its most expensive.

It was a good trip. Very stable ride and crew are nice. I love the Halloween theme and the efforts put by the crew. I On improvement - I think the group tour is not control properly - that time there was a marine academy school with 250 pax roaming around the vessel that sometimes bothers me.

The accommodation had been booked for my former senior student, owing to its lowest price. However, we were very disappointed about the congestion in the super value class. It was very crowded and the atmosphere was sub-standard. The entire space seemed to be bad smelling "quarters for slave prisoners". Consequently, we requested an upgrading to tourist class for an expensive fee. Moreover, the meager meals were not satisfying. Other items had to be bought separately in order to have a healthy meal.

It was our 1st time to travel by ship with my family we are 12 in a group. We had lots of fun in fiesta island joining the band singing and laughing with thier jokes. About the cleanliness it was good but for the prices of food medyo expensive and i don't like the combo meal with cake. Bakit parang wla kaming choice. Bakit kelangan ma may cake pa. Well un lang nman. Thank u.

Very smooth ride. Small bed but ok matrass. 50 peso for extra blanket which was necessary because of the AC. Only bad point is the procedure to be allowed on the boat: we bought the ticket online and we had to go to a 2go office to make it official. Went from Airbnb to 2go in Coron town, they send us to 2go office near the port, they send us to the office in the port. Only the online ticket should be enough, no need for so much hassle.

I arrived to the port, from Baguio, six hours prior to departure, then I received a text saying my departure is rescheduled 2:30 pm next day. So I called them asking if they can have a place to recommend for the mean time, but the one I talked to said they don't have and offered instead to refund. ? ? ? ? ? There were other passengers with me on that hot waiting area ( the white tent ) who cannot do anything because they had lots of baggage (yes we were asked to stay inside the hot white tent because we came too early). Then 2GO decided to check us in somewhere two hours later, because after that our schedule was again adjusted further, 8:00 pm. All the rest are fine with me.
