Freight cruising is a little known way of transport for people who either do not like to fly, have a penchant for cruising for long stretches of time or have a fantasy of sailing the high seas in general.  This type of passenger has had enough of the crowds and who just wants to walk outside of their cabin, grab a deck chair and watch the sunset for a quiet respite.  Rumor also has it that some celebrities find this to be the ideal venue for protecting their privacy.
