    FastCat is one of the most disappointing ferry ride i ever had… Expecting a fast and even gave them a 2hours allowance to bring me to Bacolod from Iloilo rather than their 1hour and 40 minutes advertised travel time, but yet it took me almost, as in almost 3hours to arrived at Bacolod last Friday night (12Feb2021)… And take note, we departed late, around 8:30pm or so, and so i expected i will ariived at Bacolod past 10pm but to my dispappointment, we arrived past 11pm… disappointing experience indeed…

    The passenger ferry stopped 2 months ago. Only Roro from Bredco, restricted due to Covid.
