Ferry left 2 hours later than b

We arrived there early in the morning and they said that it was cancelled. Without any previous warning. They gave us the money back and said that the other company, Oceanjet, had a ferry soon. We went to buy the tickets, supposedly it was the same price, however this new one did not include the carry on baggage so we had to pay extra. The trip was ok, but the extra money and stress in the morning were unnecessary

The Ferry took off on time. The ride was smooth. It clean and boarding and off loading was quick. I do wish some of the pier fees [terminal, pier, baggage] were included in the ticket so I didn't have to keep searching for cash. Also, it would be nice if they offered some refreshments...even a vending machine would do.

Pier 1 cebu has both ferry companies Staff was informative. Tickets can be purchased outside.The women at the information desk inside were very good. Enter the terminal. Pay the terminal fee. To the right check in and select a seat. Check in staff were pleasant. Proceed to your gate. Supercat to the right side dock. Smooth sailing..good crew. Everything you need to know here 12go excellent company but for purposes of location pier 1 was absent in description which can be confusing for travelers when booking a grab cab. Taxi driver knew where.

The boat trip was OK: the boat very stable, on time and quick delivey of checked baggage. Just confusing getting to the ferry company desk to exchange the voucher for the ticket.
Ferry Tourist Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Jan 29, 2023
Communication & information is poor. Was very hard to figure out which pier to arrive to, theres a lot of misinformation out there. When you get there, it’s one more charge after another charge. The employees hardly speak Tagalog, only their native dialect, & are rude. The ferry itself & travel across the water was good. Fast, more helpful/kind staff, fun movie to watch, & decent breakfast food. Just from online booking, to ticket office, to the info mismatching everywhere, to the baggage fee, is the hassle lame part.
