  1. Sir pwedi bang magtanong kung ang M/V Lapu-lapu po ba ay 7pm yung arrive sa Cawayan Masbate? Pwedi po ba maka reserve nang ticket sa kanila sa online? saan po parte nang cebu dadaong ang barko? at official date and time po ba nang barko yung nakalagay dito at yung pamasahe papunta cebu?
    Salamat po😊
    Salamat Po


    • @Christian Sy

      Regarding sa mga tanong mo, first ang MV Lapu-lapu ay walang biyahe papuntang Cawayan, lahat ng biyahe nila ay papuntang Cataingan. Second is, wala silang sariling website pero may mga online shipping reservation na pwede mo mapagtanungan kung nag-iisue ba sila para sa barkong nabangit, Pwede ka rin pumunta ta sa Pier 3 ng Cebu Port nanduon ang ticketing office nila, kahilera ng mga ticketing offices ng ibang barko,
      Lastly, Ang information na nabasa mo rito ay base duon sa schedules na posted sa kanilang ticketing office sa puerto ng Cebu. kung gusto mo ng updated maari kang magsadya sa nabangit na office baka may nagbago sa information na nakita mo dito.

      Salamat sa pagbisita sa aking blog.

    • Thanks trekero. I was wondering where will you be coming from? Anyway I am not sure if all of the ships plying these route will be available knowing October is no peak season and chances are they maybe on a routine maintenance, however, contact numbers are provided above so that you can call them ahead of time should have second thoughts about their schedules.

    • Yes, NorthBus terminal ka bili kang ng ticket RoRo Bus station alis mga 8:00 P.m papuntang Masbate City, tapos lipat sa ibang bus or you can choose to ride a pump-boat or roro vessel around 4 hours to travel booth or choose a fast-craft which can travel faster 1:00/30:00 minutes from masbate to pilar sorsogon…then you will ride a commuter van to legazpi city.vessel departure from masbate is 12:00 noon fast-craft departs on 5:00 a.m, 8:00 a.m and 11:00 a.m three trips different crafts.


  7. Are you sure about the daily trip between Cebu City and Cataingan? Someone had told me that the ferry from Cebu City to Cataingan is MWF and Cataingan to Cebu City is TThS only. And the time it leaves Cataingan port, are you sure it’s 8AM?
