Ice on cruise ships is usually a good thing, at least when it’s in a cocktail or underneath some jumbo shrimp. According to Arctic cruise Britons hurt as ice falls on ship, though, ice falling from a nearby glacier is no laughing matter. Eighteen passengers on an Arctic sightseeing ship, the Alexey Maryshev, were injured when ice fell from a glacier and landed on the ship.
A local authority investigation has been launched amid concern the captain of the boat could have been sailing too close to the edge of glacier at the time.
Ya think? It’s nice that the ship captain works to get his passengers great photo ops, but getting conked on the head by falling ice sounds just a bit TOO close.
