Cruise to Boracay!
This prompted me to search for the ferry schedule from Coron to Manila. As I was browsing, I chanced upon this photo (on the left) announcing a direct sail from Batangas Port to Caticlan. What got me more excited was the cruise style accommodation. I've tried the RORO route from Manila, but the 12 hour sea and land transfers are very exhausting. I was ready to book a trip the next day and called their hotline numbers (02-5287000). The ferry leaves Batangas at 8PM daily and leaves Caticlan at 8AM everyday. Travel time is approximately 9 hours and the fare cost less than 900 pesos per person one way. The trip did not push thru due to conflict in schedule with my companion, but now I'm thinking of going on the next long weekend after Holy Week.
