What to Expect?

Voyages by cargo ship

Travelling on a cargo ship is a unique experience, offering an exclusive and authentic insight into the world of commercial shipping.

We are able to offer voyages on several different types of vessel such as container ships, bulk carriers and car/vehicle carriers. 



Cargo ships usually offer single, twin or double bed cabins. Most of the vessels have exterior cabins with sitting areas, desk, shower and WC all fitted to a good standard of comfort. Remember though that these are hard working cargo ships, not cruise ships!


Cargo ships can carry a maximum of 12 passengers although most vessels only have accommodation for 4 to 6 passengers.

We have passengers from all walks of life, ranging from single travellers to families. If you have the wanderlust and want to enjoy travel the old fashioned way - this could be just what you are looking for!

In all cases, the common denominator is a love for the sea, the adventure and possibility of visiting different ports and enjoying the serenity and tranquility you can only get on a cargo vessel. Port calls and duration are always subject to cargo priorites; it is not always possible to go ashore in every port.

In all cases a good level of general health and unaided mobility is required (steep gangways and internal stairways).

Age restrictions apply to most services; generally lower age limit is 18 years and the upper 78th birthday. Medical certification may be required for selected voyages.

The Greener Way to Travel

carbon footprints

Whether a Cargo ship has 1 or 101 passengers onboard, it will still sail and use just as much fuel, making your journey almost completely 'carbon neutral'.
