my Grandmother used to do "container ship cruises". Basically your common all-garden container ship has 8-12 rather well appointed guest rooms. She went round the world on them (making that her 6th round the world trip or something!) and was saying that 6 weeks of container ship cruise cost the same as 2 on a normal cruise ship... minus the cabaret (no bad thing in my book!) but plus eating with the captain and officers every night. And there's a pool and stuff. All mod cons.http://travel.spotcoolstuff.com/cruise/freighter-cargo-ship-itinerarieshttp://www.cruisepeople.co.uk/world.htm
My uncle and Aunt are doing a world cruise in Jan/Feb and they will be passing thru Dubai. Not sure where their cruise starts or ends thou. I do know that there was a cruise ship last year that starts in UK heads towards US and comes thru Dubai, ends in Southampton.
nope dont think so only cruise ships remember how difficult it was for michael palin
Hello, I'm interested to know if anyone has ever travelled a long distance by boat!? For instance could you take a boat to UK from Dubai, or go from Dubai to Thailand?Not really sure if this is even possible, but interested to see if anyone knowsSK
