Ryan: AFAIK, there are no cruise ships passing by Cebu. There is a cruise ship that traverses the Coron, Puerto Galera and Boracay route. You can charter a private yacht however if you need be. Soon Manila will be a stopover of international cruises as well. Why Cebu is not included in the itinerary is actually a good question – there are a lot of good tourist spots nearby but I guess, it would be up for the LGU of Cebu along with the other provinces in the area to work on this and partner with a cruise company. Who knows, in the near future we would be seeing a luxury liner docking in Cebu.
Cheers.

    There was several Cruise Liner in the Phillippines before, however it came to a screeching stop due to several factors. It was reported that Custom workers in PI have repeatedly abuse the rules and have their relatives/friends to go inside the cruise line for a “FREE SNACK”. Cruise Liner have no control over these since the PI custom dictates the rules on who goes in or out the ship. Hope this answer your question. :)
