French container carrier CMA CGM of Marseilles are offering a 76-day voyage around the world on six of their medium-sized container ships for those who do not like cruise ships. The vessels involved, CMA CGM Blue Whale, Dolphin, Florida, Kingfish, Swordfish and Tarpon, are all of about 5,100TEU capacity, sail under the British flag and are only about two to three years old.

Each ship has three double cabins, complete with private lounge, refrigerator, desk and chair, and en suite facilities, while there is also a shipboard library, table tennis, deck chairs and small swimming pool. The ships load in New York, then head east for Tangier, Morocco, before transiting the Suez Canal for Jebel Ali, after which they proceed to Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Pusan.
