We were welcomed by the cheerful crew of 2GO Travel. ;)
This is their Mega Value room that consists of double bunk beds and a TV in air conditioned parts of the vessel. Guests staying in this room share a common bath exclusively for Mega Value passengers. Linens are not provided but you may rent for a minimum charge.
The Tourist room is an upgraded version of the Mega Value. The number of double bunk beds vary per vessel but they usually accommodate 6-14 pax.
Our group stayed in the Cabin room which is a private air conditioned room that could accommodate 2-4 pax. In fairness, who would've thought such room exists in 2GO Travel's passenger vessel?! Gone are the days where I thought the passenger sleeps beside animals or whatnot inside the ship. Hehe. Ang ganda nito! Hotel na hotel lang ang drama. ;)
Each room has its own private bath with toiletries provided.
Our room also has a full length mirror for selfie shots and a cabinet.
This is the Dining Area and it's open to all passengers.
If I'm not mistaken this "diner" is open 24 hours so you'll surely have hot meals on board 24/7. ;)
For passengers needs, there's a Convenience Store where you can also buy food, drinks, bath products, over-the-counter medicines as well as souvenirs from 2GO Travel.
Most rooms do not allow mobile charging unless you're staying in their Cabin and State rooms. Don't worry because 2GO Travel provided charging stations for all types of gadgets. They charge Php5.00 for 10 mins. of charging time.
Vacation starts on board as this vessel also features a Salon and Spa. How awesome is that?! Didn't have much time to get a massage but at least I got my nails done. Woot! ;)
There's an Entertainment area where they have singers and comedians performing from 9PM 'til around 1AM.
But the coolest part of our vessel tour would have to be getting access at the roof deck of the vessel as well as...
The Pilot House! :) Only a few get to have a chance to go and actually meet the "Master" or Captain of the vessel. Here's a group photo of the bloggers with Capt. Ariel Balagosa. He started with Negros Navigation (which is now owned by 2GO Group, Inc./2GO Travel) and has 35 years of experience in the Maritime Industry. Photo credit to Willa Stock of The Blogging Traveller.
