how do you book a ride on a container ship and how far in advance?

It depends. Booking isn't exactly what I do. I request passage...and if the shipping line and the captain agrees then I get a confirmation.

I've never had anything arranged more that 2 months in advance. And usually I get onboard only a few days after I've received permission. It's tricky, difficult and uncommon. But doable.

There are however some ships that make a business out of it and you can book a cabin online. I've never tried that though.
