3 A nyone who has ever been on board a container ship will never forget the impressive scenery of those modern port facilities – they don’t have much in common with our romantic ideas of seafaring life. The fascination, however, remains – particularly for passen- gers. They can watch the hustle and bustle of loading and unloading of the containers and be close by when the pilot manoeuvres the powerful vessel out of the harbour. Once the vessel is on its scheduled course, things settle down again: From now on it is the magical combination of waves and clouds that determine the rhythm. You must experience it for yourself – words won‘t do it any justice! Immerse yourself in the adventure that is „Freighter Travel“.
