Milagrosa J Shipping Iloilo to Palawan

milagrosa-shipping-palawan-001Milagrosa Shipping is one option to use when traveling to Puerto Princesa, Palawan¬† from Iloilo, Panay. It’s handy for overlanders that are coming from Boracay and want to head to Palawan with out backtracking.

Milagrosa has 2 boats – the bigger one leaves Iloilo at 7pm Monday nite and the smaller one leaves on Thursday nite.

Always call first just to be sure of the schedule. Last year the smaller vessel was in dry dock for a few months and there was only one trip a week.

Miligrosa Shipping

milagrosa-shipping-palawan-013The vessel will make a port of call on Cuyo Island. You have about 5 or 6 hours to get off the boat and do a bit of exploring and get some food.

milagrosa-shipping-palawan-026I have done this trip twice and am satisfied with the deluxe accommodation. It’s on the upper level and you get a good breeze up there. Economy is a tad cheaper but it is quite crowded and hot. There is a shower on the boat which helps you from getting too grubby.

milagrosa-shipping-palawan-020There is a reasonably fast internet in Cuyo, the Feroland Hotel. It’s a good way to kill some time without getting too heated up walking around. There isn’t really that much to see in town, but it’s a good idea to pick up some food and drinks because you will not arrive in Puerto Princesa until 8am the following morning.

You land up spending two nights on the ship.

I took my bike along – 977 pesos plus port fees, stevedoring, arrastre, customs and all sorts of little nicks. In most ports it is an easy process but in Puerto it takes 7 steps.

  4. Hello Sir!

    I am considering this shipping line to Iloilo from Puerto Princesa, aside from Montenegro. Do you have any idea on what time and certain day of the week does this sail going back to Iloilo? We’re going to Cebu next month to do a Cebu-Bohol trip and we’re trying to weigh things whether getting a direct flight PPS-CEB through Cebu Pacific would be better instead of taking a ship (+ on ship because we get to travel more).

    I hope to hear more from you sir. Thanks!
