Watch Out! Antarctic Cruises Will Make You Sick!

by | Oct 16, 2017 | 15 comments

We’re not talking about a case of the sniffles here (honestly it’s not all that cold in Antarctica in the summer). We mean that Antarctic cruises stand a good chance of getting on your nerves, annoying you, or just out-and-out making you feel icky. Don’t believe us? Take a look below.

The wildlife is just obnoxious

Ug, just look at this guy. Do seals really think we don’t know they are deliberately being cute? We’re onto you pal!

The penguins get in on it too. Some people think their little tuxedos are for underwater camouflage but we know better – the outfits are for making grown men go squeeeee! and then punch themselves in the face so they can feel manly again after going all goofy over the cuteness.

“Ha ha! I’m adorable! What are you going to do about it?”

The surroundings make your camera finger sore

Even if every single person on your Antarctic cruise manages to tear their eyes away from the wildlife it’s not like you’re free. All you’re doing is turning your attention to another trap – Antarctica itself.

The Antarctic Peninsula, the Ross or Weddell Seas… it doesn’t matter where you go, it’s all annoyingly spectacular.

Here’s the really dirty part – the landscapes change. Even if you’re anchored in one spot the view can change overnight as blue-white icebergs calve off of glaciers and drift into view.

So even if you think you’re safe and you’ve taken all the possible pictures a human being could possibly take of one area a big chunk of ice drifts its way on in and bam! you now have something else to photograph and explore.

You might end up learning stuff

Who goes on vacation in order to learn new things? Can’t we just take an Antarctic cruise and then come back with nothing new in our heads?

READ: What you need to know about Antarctica

Apparently not. Aside from educational talks on the ships, there’s a good chance you’ll be brought to check out historical sites.

There are also scientific research stations to visit. They might end up teaching you even more stuff. Keep in mind, some of these people are down there for the entire year. Do you really want to take lessons from people who hang out during an Antarctic winter?

There are also monuments to famous explorers. Pictured – Shackleton being pestered by penguin cuteness FOR ALL TIME.

It’s not safe anywhere!

So you beg and plead with your captain to get your Antarctic cruise ship out of there because you just can’t take it anymore and you think you’re safe out in open waters don’t you? Think again friend:

Right, Blue, Sei, Humpback, Minke, Fin, Sperm, and Killer Whales are all lying in wait.

The worst symptom of all…

The worst symptom of Antarctic cruises is that after you go you’re going to want to go back again and again. Take our advice, stay in your cubicle. It’s much safer there.
