Containerships Take on Guest Travelers for Cargo Cruises

Friday, February 25, 2011

 CMA CGM, the world’s third largest container shipping Group, offers a one-of-a-kind experience to journey across oceans, seas and continents on a “Cargo cruise.”

 
With this original means of transport, passengers can immerse themselves in life on board and discover the world of merchant shipping. In 2010, 690 people chose to “experience cruising another way” by traveling on a containership.
 
CMA CGM Group is now offering genuine cruises aboard the biggest vessels in its fleet, the new 13,800-TEU* containerships. These giants of the seas (365 m in length, equivalent to 3.5 soccer fields), are among the largest vessels of their kind in the world.
 
The company even offers cruises aboard its flagship, the CMA CGM Christophe Colombe, which has a special private deck and spacious luxury cabins. Passengers also have access to a range of facilities such as a lounge with TV equipment, a library, a fitness room and even a swimming pool in which to relax. Passengers are in daily contact with the crew and take their meals at the Captain’s table. As well as the Europe/Asia route plied by the 13,800 TEU containerships, CMA CGM Group offers trips on its other maritime routes all over the world.
