A while ago I met a person who claimed to have traveled from Denmark to Faroe Island on a cargo ship.
Is this really possible? How could I find a ship that could host me?
It's entirely possible that it was on the Smyril Line's Norröna - a cargo ship come passenger vessel, and the only one going to the Faroes. It has a cargo capacity of 3,250 tonnes.
Failing that, we have another question with detailed information on how to get onboard cargo ships as a passenger.
