Traveling by boat is great and can be a lot of fun no matter which of these methods you use.
Cruising on Cruise ships is a means of travel with some substantial benefits, but a few drawbacks too. The majority of people love them, but some people hate them. Cruising makes it easy to visit several places in a single trip without the need to repack your belongings and sit in a car/train/bus/plane to travel to each one; your hotel room comes along with you, and even provides the transportation. Cruise lines offer widely varying itineraries. They can last for

1. A few days at sea or to a nearby port-of-call. These may be offered as an introduction to cruising, or just as an opportunity to party.

2. One or two weeks to visit ports and sights in a particular region, per “Cruise types” below.

3. A month or more to see a region of the world, or three or more months to go around the world; a lifetime experience.

Freighter travel is a less crowded, cheaper alternative for crossing a sea or ocean, not using airplanes or commercial cruise ships or ferries.

Two short advices:

1. If you become ill: Report it as soon as possible, very preferably by cabin phone!

2. Don’t spend too much time on the sun unprotected.
