Cruising, especially river cruising, is all the rage right now (I’ve been on two: with Viking for a tour of the European Christmas Markets and with Scenic Cruises for a summer European cruise). I loved them both equally. But a lot of people, including me, sometimes want something a little bit more unique.
Well, this BBC piece introduces a whole new type of cruising to most travelers: cargo ship travel. I’ve actually been on one of the examples featured in the story—Hurtigruten in Norway—and loved it even though it’s completely different than ocean and river cruising. I also sent contributor Jerome Shaw to French Polynesia to go on the Aranui 3.
