Ferry Business Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Jun 20, 2022
Sorry but i just dont like to walk that far from the port to the ship itself Also, the short fat lady/receptionist (nov 6/ 7am in charge) on the deck checking/spraying alcohol her facial features is a bit disturbing maybe she is not in the mood to work or have a bad day while the rest of the staff and the tall firm lady receptionist is so nice

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.
