Work for passage by pirate on 6 November 2004 3:46pm
 
I am planning a trip to New Zealand and am thinking of different ways to get there. I would like to go by ship if possible, does anyone out there have any information on shipping companys that offer this service? I would also like to work aboard a ship to pay for my passage to NZ, i realise that this does probably not happen anymore but has anyone got any ideas???

Hi there!

I was wondering if you already found some ways to work your passage on a ship?? I am looking myself for some ways to get to either New zealand or Australia..The only thing I found till now is working on a cruise boat ( 6 month contract)
the good thing about that is that you will go from board with quite an amount of money...
hope to hear what you found out!

Greetings,
Isidoor

It's more likely once you're out of the UK ports i would say. I remember one time on an Island in Honduras, an Australian Girl i was with went to the Yaucht?/yaught? (i cant spell that) club where the more affluent erm..."sailors" hung around. Westerners with nice "Yots". From what i remember, she got a job with them for a while. Or, she was promised one in a few weeks time. So it's still possible. But cargo ships are harder to get onto thesedays. Either new laws prevent it (security) or the Captains now ask astronomical amounts of money for the privelege of sailing the high seas and standing at the bow like Leo Decappuchino and shouting out the immortal line - "I'm king of the wooooorld..wooo woo wooooo".
