MV Doña Marilyn was a Philippine inter-island ferry owned and operated by Sulpicio Lines, Inc.

In the afternoon of October 24, 1988, while sailing from Manila to Tacloban City, the vessel was caught up in Typhoon Ruby and sank,[1] leaving approximately 400 dead, with only 147 survivors. Doña Marilyn was a sister ship of the ill-fated MV Doña Paz, which sank a year earlier in the deadliest ever peace-time maritime disaster.
