Hey Walt, you were right about this type of cruising not attracting a lot of interest...even when a direct question is asked and then fully answered, there is no reaction! Oh well, maybe it's better that we keep it a secret, after all there aren't that many berths on the few working ships that take paying passengers.
I'm sorry. I would have replied earlier, but I 've just got back from a cruise today with my family. (Not sure if that info showed up in my signature line or not).
Thanks for the info.
We have young kids, so it would be difficult to take tem on a cruise like the one you were lucky enough to do over 46 nights. I might do some more investigation to see if there are any shorter cruises available.
Will you be keeping a blog or online travel journal while you're aboard? I tried to do one on our most recent cruise but it got a bit expensive with the exhorbitant rates you have to pay for internet access onboard. I managed to post on every day except the last though.
Any idea what internet access would be like on a freighter?
