Want to Take a Freighter Cruise?

Did you not know it is possible to travel on a cargo ship? Yes, not a problem we can arrange it for you.

If you want to reduce your carbon footprints, or if you despise flying or if you are the enquisitive type of person then freighter voyages are right for you.

Freighter travel is a very flexible form of travel. Freighter travel averages of about EURO 1OO per person per day and the fare is calculated by the number of days on board and includes all meals, port charges and the mandatory deviation insurance.

There are age limits, as there is no doctor on board and passengers are advised they need to be mobile and fit to travel. Medical certificates are required by most Shipping Companies within 30 days of travel. Medical certificates can be issued by any physician in the World not necessarily passengers GP in cases when passengers are already travelling and have no communication with their own physician.Since this is a 'working' ship there are no facilities for disabled passengers but Sea Travel Ltd can easily assist with Cruise Passenger Liner booking instead. Please visit Sea Travel Ltd Cruise Page for more information.

Schedules of freighter cruises are not printed out as changes and delays are possible at any time and on short call. Dates of departure and arrival are always given as "on or about" because there could be changes due to cargo being loaded and unloaded; port congestion or weather conditions. Departure dates are usually known approx. 5/10 days prior to boarding.

We kindly advise passengers to get in touch with the port agent at the port of embarkation for particulars on estimated time of arrival and departure and good time for boarding. Contact details for the agent will be provided closer to departure with the ticket via Internet as an email attachment or alternatively by fax for those who have no Internet access.
