On the ticket the ETD was 8pm so we are already there around 5pm at the pier. Then it was already 9pm, 10, 11, then finally at around 12mn we were able to depart.but we dont even told that we were delayed and we dont know the reason why it was delayed for that long period or tym. Staying at the boat was not that easy its so hot. Then supposedly we arrive at cebu 6pm the next day.. I have choosen that trip because i know that i can still get a boat going to bohol @10pm but then we have reached cebu at 11pm then we were able to dis embark the boat around 12:30am- 1am. So how would i reached bohol on that day? It was very dissapointing. We dont have sleep because we need to stay at the pier until morning. So that we can catch up the 1st trip going to bohol. Lots of toilets but only few are working most of them was locked then some are OUt of Order. Though the entire boat was clean
