There are many ways do a cruise and not always on board large boats with great detail because you can sail on a freighter. Yes, you heard right! There are various companies that offer this type of trips, obviously don't have many amenities like a conventional cruise, but most importantly keep the charm of traveling to different countries of the world, from the Mediterranean to India and even around the world.
The spaces of the cargo ships are allocated to passengers are limited but on the boat you will have your cabin with television. There is also a library, cinema and sometimes, gym and pool.
The facilities are shared with the crew and therefore daily you live it with them. Not many passengers can go on this type of ship, estimated between 2 and 12, so the treatment is very familiar.
As the main objective of these ships is to transport goods on their decks there are large numbers of containers, machinery, cranes ... and no teaching animation teams doing salsa or pool games.
The ports that are visited are industrial ports and scales are not short. Trips are ideal for people who have time and you like adventure because both the duration and the itinerary may vary. Trips are usually between two weeks to three or four months.
If you are motivated and interested in traveling in a different way there are agencies like Maris or Freighter World Cruises offer this type of cruise.
