We are often asked about the possibility to make a short trip to get to know freighter voyages for the first time. This voyage offers the opportunity to get a taste of cargo shipping for a few days. The vessel calls at Hull and Tilbury in irregular alternation, usually it is determined only shortly before the start of the voyage which English port will be called at. The port is not selectable when booking. Hull lies on the tidal Humber, a city tour is worthwhile. Tilbury is at the mouth of the Thames, where you can take the train to London. Always beautiful cruises on the Meuse and Thames. We made this voyage ourselves in 2018 and can highly recommend it as a trial trip. The vessel is based in Rotterdam at the Beatrixhaven near the city. In Rotterdam we recommend a shuttle service that takes passengers to the vessel (for a fee).
