Meals are served while you are on board, and you eat at the same place as the crew. Cleaning of the room is done at least once a week, but washing is done by oneself. Although it is possible to land at the harbor carrying the cargo, it is necessary to return with responsibility by the departure time of the container ship. Mr. Richards' most customers are single men and common rooms are with bedroom and living room with bathroom.

Amusements such as dancers, magicians and performers' shows like luxury liners are not prepared, but many boats have facilities such as pool · sauna · gym · table tennis · DVD player and lounge with TV, typical The cost is only 120 dollars a day (about 14,800 yen). For two people like Mr. Rieffel, it is possible to stay in a suite room with a little more space and a fridge.

According to Mr. Richards, according to Mr. Richards, "There are 4 to 12 guests aboard a single voyage, which is about 4 to 12 guests, but according to Mr. Richards," By having a civilian board a cargo ship, a crew member We believe that we can keep good human relationships and we are also welcoming the guests on the parties side.
