Freighter Booked

Our freighter journey across the Atlantic is almost booked! Around the 21st of January we'll be travelling from Charleston to Antwerp aboard the MSC Flaminia. The ship is not quite as big as the Hanjin Yantian, but still large at 299m long, with a capacity of 6750 TEUs. Whenever I think of MSC though I think of the MSC Napoli, which run aground off the Devon coast where much looting ensued (we probably still have a packet of oily biscuits found on a beach). Hopefully the MSC Flaminia wont reach a similar plight.

This time we wont be the only passengers as the other double room has already been booked by some people on a round-trip. I find the prospect of not being the only passengers quite exciting. It's also reassuring to know that other passengers are braving the winter storms. Once again we're booking through the NSB Reisebuero-
