Its looks like you pay $30 US for this experience, which would not be too bad for a week or so, but it could get pricey i think, I would have some question for sure:

How long is the boat at sea at one time? ( you could be out at sea for days not seeing anything but water at $30 bucks a day)

I would wanna know what "work" had to be done while on the ship.

What ports of call would be available to get off at?

Is there a min. amount of time that you have to pay for in advance?

Do you pay in one lump sum or do you pay day by day?

And your right, if u get sick easy...THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!!!

I think I would like more info on this service, and maybe speak to peps who have done this type of thing before.
