Freighter Expert Fred Cherney Retires From The Cruise People’s Toronto Office: London Office To Take Over Cargo Ship Bookings

Fred Cherney from the Toronto office of The Cruise People Ltd yesterday announced his retirement from the field of freighter travel, after thirty-three years in the business.

In a statement from Toronto, Fred said “Instead of retiring my sweater, The Cruise People Ltd (Canada) is retiring from the passenger freighter business. The company will continue to be a very experienced source of ocean liner voyages, cruise ships, river boats and expedition cruises. The Langs [owners of the Canadian firm] have been in business since 1972.”

In his message to past passengers, Mr Cherney said, “I’d like to thank my past clients who sailed over the years. It has been a real pleasure working with you and reading your voyage reports. My e-mail account will remain open for a time and I’d love to hear from you.” Fred can be reached at

Miri joined The Cruise People in 2009 and  will continue to book freighter passengers on routes worldwide. Being close to owners in Europe, the London office now counts more than 350 passenger-carrying cargo ships on its books and Miri books passengers from around the world. She can be reached in London on +44 (0)20 7723 2450 (UK time) or by e-mail any time at
