Trip Cancellations due to weather disturbance
When Typhoon Signal 1 is raised in the areas covered by Starhorse Shipping, all their boats will not sail, and scheduled trips are cancelled. This is to follow government maritime regulation. Resumption of service and trips entirely depends on PAGASA’s advisory and go-signal. So please if there are typhoon signals raised in Marinduque or Quezon, it would be better if you just stay at home and don’t go to the ports because trips will be cancelled; trip resumes when typhoon signal is lifted by weather agency PAGASA.
