Any seafarer can see that this class of small yacht style cruise vessel has absolutely no business whatsoever venturing into Antarctic waters…this class was built for Renaissance Cruises to be in the Med and Caribbean, NOT the Antarctic! You need a proper ship to cross the Drake Passage even during the Southern Hemisphere summer. Can you imagine how she would be riding if it was a stern sea with that flat transom? It boggles the imagination when you realize that the great power of the universe allowed one main to stay running! If not, she’d have capsized and gone down for sure once they went broadside to and nobody would have survived. Do passengers to Antarctica get training in donning survival suits? Hey should!
What are these people thinking? The shipowners, not the passengers and crew…the passengers and crew were all thinking they are going to DIE!
Time for new IMO Regulations governing passenger vessels sailing to extreme environments.
Also note that the video says the Shetland Islands when in fact they are the South Shetland Islands…totally different hemispheres.
