Hello all. I have never done this sort of thing before. But I served on the SS Albano running between london and Copenhagen. She carried a few passengers as well as cargo.
I have been out of touch for many years so I am asking. Is such a service available in this day and age?
Thanks for listening
Joe

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Joe.
Now all down to big ferries or aeroplanes but I'm sure a crewmember will tell you if it can still be done.
Find your way around and enjoy the voyage.

A warm welcome Joe. I hope that you will enjoy your membership of the site and will participate in the activities. I think that some of the cargo-ferries to Scandanavia carry up to 12 passengers, but some of the members may have more information for you.

Thanks Fred I hope so as my daughter would like to see what I saw.
I was told Copenhagen had changed but according to a recent traveller it still sounds the same.

A warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia, Joe.
With our forums and photos, I think you'll be brought up to date fairly quickly and enjoy yourself in the process, too.

Hi Joe, I think there are a number of foreign flag ships that still take passengers and there is a web site but can't recall the name ... should be able to Google "Cargo Ship Passengers" and do a search through there. One has to be ready to go at the "Drop of a hat" and/or wait for days at a port "On the ready" to sail, which can be expensive. Regards, Snowy

DFDS, out of Grimsby & Harwich, take a few passengers on their Ro-Ro ships to Copenhagen. Google DFDS for their service. Welcome to the site.
