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.

99.6% of 7,512 travelers were presumably happy with 2GO as they left good or no review

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

I booked a 6 bed tourist room, they put me in a 70 person room due to operating with a bigger boat. The office in Coron is a joke, people are unfriendly and couldn’t even print my tickets so I had to go somewhere else to print. There is no service from this company whatsoever and I’ll never book with them again.

We had purchased tickets online for 6-8 pac room. After not finding the room and asking a worker on the ship, we got showed to a 30+pac room. After walking around the ship, looking for our room on different levels with our heavy luggages we got showed to the same room by a different worker. Not happy with the room since we booked a more private one, we checked our emails to see that the ticket given, had a different price on, by around 300php less per person which is 1200php less in total than we actually paid with 4 people. After realising that, we went straight to the info desk and the lady started checking the availabilities of other rooms. At the end we were lucky and got a tranfer to a 4pac room with two bunk beds which meant it was just us in the room. Make sure you have extra cash on the boat since not possible to pay by card and you have to pay extra 50php for a blanket and also rent bedsheets for 50php. It is also really cold in the room bevause of the aircon you cannot close. At least there is a mini shop and some food if you don’t bring any with you and going on and off the ship you get help with your luggage in case its heavy.

I booked the tourist cabin, which was falsely advertised as having a maximum capacity of 25 beds. Instead it had 60 beds!!!! The air con was freezing for people on top bunks. Bathrooms were horrendous! I went to the loo 5 mins after boarding and they clearly hadn't been cleaned for days or weeks. Hair all over the floor, blocked toilets and a revolting smell of urine and faeces. The aisle next to my bed was completely blocked and filled with a local families luggage. Thankfully I was allowed to move a few beds over. When I boarded I was shown to my room, I said thank you and then the guy who helped asked me for money!!!!!!!! And continued to hang around next to me, asking repeatedly for another few minutes.

I'm giving 2 stars due to the service before getting onto the ferry. We were told we could not use our "e -ticket" because it had to be printed out , even though the exact definition of e-ticket is that it's a online ticket. We got sent to the nearby office where the internet was very slow, they also had no WiFi ( I also had a Philippines Sim card which had no signal in that area) , after 30 mins we finally got onto our emails to print from their computer behind the desk. Before printing we were asked to hand over 50 peso each to print our tickets for us, or it would come out the girls pay check. I think that is ridiculous since we already paid for a "e - ticket" , we should have at least got an email warning us to print. Comfort was fine - I found I had enough room and there is clean sheets available. Food is mostly rice meals. No vegetarian food so I had frozen vegetables and rice for lunch and dinner - not ideal. My partner had some sort of meat dish which was ok for him. Entertainment was good and kept everyone in Christmas spirit. Ferry arrive promptly and staff were very friendly and helpful on the ferry.

We were a group of three with one senior citizen and 2 citizens in their late fifties. We booked online in a cabin for four so we would be together. But when we checked in, we were in separate cabins and the worst part was we were to occupy the upper decks of the beds. How do you expect old ladies with all sorts of aches and pains in their bodies to climb up and down those beds? Pls be considerate of the seniors. The crew guy who helped us did his job very well. He was able to talk to the other passengers to exchange beds with us, so we used the lower beds and he was also able to make us stay in one cabin. Very commendable. Sorry, I did not get his name.

pretty good. I could sleep well, and bed sheets were clean. Improvment points : 1) I am not tall and I touched both walls with head and feets (for persons above 1m72 it must be really umcomfortable) 2) The check- takes waaaaay too long. 4 hours before on the pier, 1 hour delay, and then you have to wait again 20 min to gets sheets... that's just tooooo much! 3) At the agency coron center, the girl from 2go had no idea. She told me I have to go to the main office at the port to exchange my voucher (that was not true, it was already a ticket) I lost again time and 2 times cab money due to incompetence of the 2go girl at the Coron center office.

Everything on board was fine. Staff and accommodation excellent. Am certain boarding and disembarking procedures could be simplified ESPECIALLY for PWD, retirees, and those 60 plus. Particularly at Caticlan.........surely ALL paperwork, residency papers/permits ,terminal fees and banca dues could could be checked & dealt with on board so exiting & transiting directly to a banca to Boracay would mean exiting and straight onto the nearby/adjacent banca As it is; a long walk with luggage and all the hassle ..........................
