2019 CEBU to BACOLOD / BACOLOD to CEBU Ferry/Roro Schedules

There is currently no direct ferry or fast craft trip to Bacolod from Cebu city or vice versa. You have to get to the ports of San Carlos-Toledo or Escalante-Tabuelan first. In this post is the Lite Ferries Shipping and FastCat schedules for the trip between Toledo city of Cebu and San Carlos city of Negros Occidental. In my other article, you can just ride a Ceres bus which will travel in this exact route all the way to Bacolod city or Cebu city.

Lite Ferries Shipping is cheaper but FastCat travels faster. Both are roro or freight ships and the travel time for Lite Ferry is 2 hours while for FastCat it’s only 1 hour. There are trips every day for the two ferries.

Hi Elmer,

I found your blog thru looking online and it looks quite helpful for people looking for any other options apart from plane.
Anyway, do you have any idea if my starting point is Badian going to Bacolod (planning to travel on 29th of Dec). Any advice on which way would suits better and less time commuting using the bus to Bacolod. Your answer is highly appreciated. And thank you in advance for making / finding time answering my queries.
