  1. In addition to the type of cargo what life is like in cargo ships will also depend on the nature of the ship’s owners and the nation of registry of the ship.

    However, as a general rule “life in cargo ships” today is much the same as it has been since the time of the Phoenicians “boring punctuated by highly infrequent moments of sheer panic”.

    To simulate what “life in cargo ships” is like, find yourself a room that is approximately 8′x8′ and clean it out of everything except a bed, a small table, a chair, and a small closet. Move into that room and spend a minimum of eight hours per day in it. When you are not in that room, do hot, boring, repetitive, work in a noisy atmosphere without any view of the outside, when not in the room or doing hot boring, repetitive work, sit on an uncomfortable bench and eat really uninspired food from a four day menu cycle. Do this for 14 to 20 days straight, then have some friends take you out of your simulated ship environment and dump you off in a city you have never been in, that is populated by people with whom you can barely communicate, and with only $20.00 in your pockets.

    When you get home, sign up for another “voyage” because you actually made more money as a sailor than you would if you stayed home.
