CMA CGM cargo cruise on their largest container ship Marco Polo

Jump to last reply

This is a most unusual option for cargo ship cruise deals from the world's 3rd largest container shipping company CMA CGM (French) and their Marco Polo ship. Until the launch of newest Maersk mega ships in 2013, Marco Polo was the world's largest container ship. Marco Polo "cruises" every 11 weeks from Europe to China, then goes back to Europe - all in 77 days. According to the source for all this
http://www.marcopolocruises.net/cma-cgm-marco-polo/
for a cabin on the container ship Marco Polo (a full length voyage), the CMA CGM "cargo cruise" price will be ~10k in Euros (if traveling solo, single occupancy rate is EU130 pp), while a couple would pay ~17k in Euros (double occupancy is EU110 pp).
There's also cabin photos, and I would say cabins look pretty modest.

Prices are really affordable, but compared to the round the world cruises on typical cruise lines, this is not from the "best deals ever" - no parties, buffets, bars, theaters, restaurants, less ports of call, etc. A Cunard world cruise could be as cheap as $20k PP inside cabin for 100+ days voyage.
