Cheapest cargo ship travel and living in container ship

Cheapest cargo ship travel and living in container ship. Partial journeys on Grimaldi Lines’ “Euromed” roro tours, for example Salerno (Italy) to Setubal (in Portugal) or Salerno to Limassol (Cyprus) or Ashdod (Israel). Salerno-Setubal is €285 per person in an internal cabin with a double bed or €315 in a cabin with three single beds (but I think you have to find your travel companions yourself and book the entire cabin together in living in container, unlike couchettes on trains). That’s the absolute cheapest price I came across about Cheapest cargo ship travel. Some agencies also list the Italy-Cyprus trip for living in container ship, usually with a small markup for the Cheapest cargo ship. See More Rotterdam-UK and return (no one-way journey) on a container ship, €345 per person through Kapitän Zylmann (price includes insurance and admin fees). Kapitän Zylmann offers another round trip, Portugal to Morocco and back on a small container ship, for €560. According to the website, it only calls at one port in Morocco where the whole cargo is unloaded so it stays longer than usual in that port, which should allow passengers to disembark and explore a bit before returning to Portugal in Cheapest cargo ship travel and living in container ship. Rotterdam-Dublin-Rotterdam through Frachtschiffreisen Pfeiffer, starting at €490, two days at port in Dublin for living in container, apparently no one-way crossing available but it should be possible to go on land. The same agency has a number of one-week trips to the British Isles or across the Baltic also around €500-600 in living in container ship.

Fos-sur-Mer (near Marseille) to Malta, with a container ship from CMA-CGM. Listed by Mer & voyages as “Med 1287” for €570 (but that does not include insurance and admin fees). It might also be bookable directly from the ship’s operator, possibly a bit cheaper. If I am not mistaken, the ships on that line continue to Suez and then Asia. CMA CGM operates some of the largest container ships in the world and they are much larger than the ships listed above so it might be a good way to experience what modern shipping is like for Cheapest cargo ship travel in living in container. Cartagena to Guayaquil in Cheapest cargo ship, over the Panama canal, is listed for €800 by Kapitän Zylmann. From the same agency, it’s apparently possible to book Cartagena to Puerto Cabello in Venezuela for €610 including fees and insurance. In the same region, NSB sells journeys on container ships taking passengers and calling at Cartagena, Port-of-Spain, Kingston, Manaus, etc. They don’t list many details on price or conditions but it might possible to create some interesting shorter journeys from those lines in living in container. See More . Antwerpen-Istanbul with a container ship from MSC, also bookable through Pfeiffer. A bit more expensive at €810 plus fees and insurance (in total EUR 1100/USD 1250/AUD 1600), but still close to €1000 and a meaningful journey, crossing Gibraltar and the Mediterranean, 9 days (only double beds so here again travelling alone is more expensive). Slightly cheaper but following a similar idea, it’s possible to go from Hamburg to Genoa for €785. From what I can tell, some agencies are a little more reluctant to sell short trips than others but it seems that it’s often possible to book a partial journey on a given freighter line. So you could also check the longer journeys on all the websites listed here and then approach an agency to enquire about a specific trip, even it’s not listed explicitly.
