Does anybody know if you can take a ship across the Atlantic for traveling purposes? Forget about some caca-mimi cruise, Im talkin about straight roughing it on the high seas like travelers used to do. Maybe even having to work the ship for your fare.

I've seen some stuff out there for passage on freighters and whatnot. Nothing fancy, sometimes takes a month or more, but its old school. Prices run half of the normal cruising costs or more, but it can be rough.

If I can find one of the old websites I looked up, I'll post it for you.

This is the one that helped me out the most when I was looking around.
