“The Philippines is a wonderful destination to explore by sea. The country has 7,641 islands interconnected by majestic bodies of water that showcase the best of our natural wonders.

It’s a smooth sailing experience as the passenger-cargo vessel offers hotel-like amenities such as lounge areas, a multi-purpose room, cafes and restaurants. Travelers looking to relax can check out the available self-care services in the salon or they can spend quality time with family and friends at the KTV room. 

Passengers can also enjoy the stunning 360-degree view of the sea and the Philippine islands from the sundeck.
