Cargo Cruise Ship Vacations

Cargo Cruise Ship Vacations: Brilliant or Baffling?

Luxe buffets, planned activities, and live music are what come to mind when I think of cruises, but if you're looking for a vacay on the water that's atypical, you might consider paying a cargo ship to take you on board. Apparently, there are a number of cargo ship companies that make their freighters available for a limited number of guests to have their own rooms, and many come equipped with perks like TV and movies and exercise rooms.

Cruises can run from about nine days to five months, and while the ships tend to dock in industrial ports far from tourist attractions, most will let passengers go sightseeing as long as time permits. The cargo cruises generally cost around $100 per day; if you're interested, check out FreighterCruises.com and FreighterWorld.com for destinations and pricing.

What do you think of the concept — is it brilliant or baffling?

to be honest, i can't imagine how that would be considered a 'vacation' - you know? you don't get the amenities of a cruise ship (i.e. restaurants, pools etc) and well..you don't have windows and all that either. i don't know - i'd have to pass on this one.

100 bucks a day for no entertainment, no buffet, no live music, and a hike to tourist attractions on a port call? Why on earth would anyone do this over a regular cruise?
