ILOILO CITY: Three islands in Western Visayas will be interconnected through a new tourism product “Cruise and Drive Tour” by the Department of Tourism (DOT) regional office. Foreign and domestic tourists will be inspired to try this new escapade to visit and see the islands of Panay, Guimaras and Negros using the roll-on roll-off (roro) vessels to carry the tourists’ cars, rented vans and tour buses driven on and off the ship. DOT Reg. Dir. Helen Catalbas admitted that she is negotiating with the roro ship management of FF Cruz and Montenegro Lines to reduce their fare rates of P400 per vehicle round trip to Guimaras and back to the city.
