Ferry Business Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Feb 26, 2021
OceanJet did not know what to do about the advanced booking voucher. They have to be briefed about the services provided by PHBus and 12Go.

Ferry Tourist Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Oct 30, 2019
The whole trip is ok. Can't blame if the trip took more than 45 minutes because it is really wavy. The gentlemen who assisted us inside the ferry were nice and friendly. But the people in the check-in counter were not. Since they are the frontliners of Oceanjet, they should be accommodating and treat every passengers in a nice way. Also, they should not be communicating in local dialect. They should remember that not all local passengers came from Iloilo. Some, like me, came from Manila and do not have any idea on how to speak fluently and understand their dialect. It made me feel uncomfortable.
