If even one such ticket is too expensive, you might consider a trip by freighter. These are comfortable and relaxing, you'll have your own room with private bath and you'll eat in the officers' mess quarters. And 4-18 other passengers will be traveling with you. At under $150/day, this is a bargain. Below is one website and there are several more easily found in The Google.
