If you’re wondering how to travel the world on a limited budget and have something of an adventure too, traveling by container ship may be the answer. Most container ships, or cargo ships, have a few cabins that are rented out to adventurous passengers, typically for a lot less than a cruise ship cabin. Don’t expect luxury or the amenities you’d find on a cruise ship; your cabin will be basic, you’ll be eating meals with the crew and there won’t be a program of entertainment. In fact there isn’t a great deal to do, but if you really do want to read and relax, there will be plenty of time. Traveling this way takes some planning and there are several companies that specialize in container ship bookings. You can literally catch a container vessel anywhere in the world, including many ports where cruise ships don’t often venture.
