Default Cargo cruising

I vaguely recall this coming up in several other threads and I happened to stumble on some interesting links about using cargo ships to travel the world. Thought people might be interested:

I've heard they can be pretty good - you're well fed and looked after. Obviously you're not going to get casinos, shopping, and all the other gubbins that goes with cruise ships - but that's exactly what some people like to get away from.

My folks travelled around the world, using cargo ships during the late 60's and 70's for cheap and had a blast....mostly decent food with the captain and decent cabins.
