A bord d'un cargo -2

Posted by
Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 6 August 2019 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

Le cargo c'est le MV Lisa - porte-conteneur sous pavillon Antigua et Barbuda affrété par une compagnie allemande , construit en 2003
Si une porte est fermée , nous ne l'ouvrons pas et si nous voulons explorer un endroit nous demandons au "captain" "please captain may we go..." et il répond toujours "of course" sans rien expliquer de plus à nous de voir comment faire , sauf s'il y a une consigne spéciale comme à l'extérieur le port du casque et d'un gilet
Les nôtres sont dans notre cabine

We are totally autonomous and most of the time on the command bridge. It’s not a big freighter, so there’s no one to look after the passengers. And as it is a container ship the whole place is for the bush so there is only a narrow tower of 7 floors .
If a door is closed, we do not open it and if we want to explore a place we ask the "captain" "please captain may we go..." and he always answers "of course" without explaining anything more to us to see how to do , unless there is a special instruction as outside the wearing of the helmet and a vest
Ours are in our cabin.

Ce doit être quelque chose de voyager sur un cargo, je me souviens que tu l'avais déjà fait non? c'est la vraie vie réelle à bord loin des bateaux de croisière de luxe

The captain has a beautiful view but it does not sound like passengers are given much help.

6 Aug 2019 1:16pm

@Don: Thank you Don ! There are no passengers on board, we are the only ones and occupy the company cabin. We spend most of the time on the command bridge .

What a great experience and adventure! You also have a magnificent view from up above. A fabulous image! Do you eat your meals with the ship crew?

6 Aug 2019 8:51pm

@Elaine Hancock: Thank you Elaine ! We eat meals in the officers' mess at 7.20am, 11am and 5pm and we have to be on time because they swallow everything in a hurry and go back to work . There is a part of everything for everyone, nothing more .

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Oh, this really is an adventure! It would be fun at least for a while. An excellent image of your ship.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

wow - a very tall ship. I suppose it allows them to see over tall stacks of cargo containers as well as far into the horizon. I have never understood what keeps the top lavel of containers from tumbling off in rough seas.

6 Aug 2019 11:33pm

@Harry: Thank you Harry ! The containers are held to each other by horizontal bars entering the container below and crossbars . Everything is always very checked and secure. You will see it in my upcoming photos.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

What an adventure this must be. Very interesting. Please tell us more.
