How to find the best CARGO SHIP TRAVEL or cargo travel deals. Modern container ships might not be as glamorous as old-time clippers, junks and steamers, but they still ply those ports of legend: Shanghai, Singapore, Rio and Alexandria. Many carry passengers, typically six per voyage, and they cover vast distances in set circular routes. Bookable through The Cruise People, the Evergreen Line sails from Thamesport to China via Suez, Singapore and Taiwan in your cargo travel, while Euro-Med does a mammoth 35-day trek from Southampton around the Mediterranean for your CARGO SHIP TRAVEL, Ireland and Scandinavia. Cabins are not the stuff of luxury liners – views can be obscured by large stacks of containers – but they are comfortable. Ships often come with unexpected additions such as a swimming pool and fitness rooms. Meals are taken in the officers’ mess. Port times are short – expect six 24-hours only – and subject to immigration regulations for any CARGO SHIP TRAVEL.
Italian shipping company Grimaldi owns a large fleet of container vessels operating worldwide itineraries and also offering cabins to paying passengers.

Built in Bremen in 1958, MS Oldenburg is a vintage supply ship which was bought by The Landmark Trust in the mid-Eighties to service Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel, 12 miles off the Devon coast. She takes cargo and passengers to the island on a two-hour sailing trip from Bideford and Ilfracombe up to four times weekly in your cargo travel, from March to October. In winter she is used only for essential deliveries.
