Thanks for letting me as close as I'll probably get to the tramp steamer fantasy so many of us grew up with--and which is now, apparently, more civilized than in the fantasies...but still with an edge of danger.

Or maybe you just don’t want to mix with 3,000 other passengers any more. For a completely different experience have you ever considered cruising on a cargo ship?
