It’s been a little while since I posted on here but due to moving around migrating interstate, I haven’t had the most stable of timetables to post things here! Before I forget, Happy New Year to all the followers here at PxR! Now onward to this weeks photo…

It wasn’t unusual to have everyone gathered at the front of the ship when we saw something amazing. This time though, it was something quite dangerous.

Our ship was ice strengthened but not an ice-breaker. We had come to the Lemaire channel to find it covered in a thin sheet of ice and some floating icebergs. No one knew if the hull could withstand the passage through, but the captain decided it was worth a shot…

To make things even more interesting, we had another ship trying to race ours into the channel, which is barely wide enough for one ship! Thankfully, we got there first and passed through the channel unscathed. Whew!
