CEBU SHIPPING GUIDE - SCHEDULE and RATES (2 of 12) - TRANS-ASIA SHIPPING

CEBU SHIPPING GUIDE - SCHEDULE and RATES: Getting to Cebu, Visayas and Mindanao by Ship, Boat and Ferry
Ever tried booking for a ticket when travelling via ship or ferry? Or have you planned that perfect trip to Cebu or nearby islands only to found out that there is no scheduled trip on the day you set?  Did you check for other travel options with other shipping companies but could not find their info?  I did and it was such a great inconvenience to grope for answers and could find none.

This is the second of the twelve i'll be making of a detailed list of Shipping Companies you might consider in travelling to and from Cebu or its nearby islands in Visayas and Mindanao and even Luzon.  This might help you or guide you in planning that trip you've been longing to take.  Check out the daily schedules and rates/fares so that you can plan your budget and set your travel date.  Links to websites and contact information of the shipping companies are also listed below if you have further inquiries or if you may wish to book online.  I suggest you book online ahead of your schedule planned trip to avail of promo fares offered by shipping lines.

NOTE: ALL SCHEDULES AND RATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE, so it is better to contact the local office of the Shipping line to verify the schedules and rates.
