Sometimes, rooms are even better than those on commercial cruises. There’s usually a small fridge, maybe a TV, sometimes even a sitting room. Bedding and hand towels are provided, and the steward will usually swing by for weekly housekeeping. Guests always get cabins with port holes or windows, though ships can’t promise unobstructed views.
Is there Wi-Fi?
There will be some sort of satellite phone, but you’ll have to buy a phone card.
So, like, what do I do all day?
Read, write, hang out on the bridge, play bridge, watch the world go by, think, chat with the crew, ignore the voices in your head, maybe use the time to learn a new language. Who knows, it's a slow-moving cargo ship. You could re-watch every episode of Sports Centers 30 for 30 on your laptop, if you wanted to. Be aware that beer and hard liquor is available, tax-free.
