Getting the Drift: Cruise Ships in Snow

December 20, 2011 | By | 2 Comments

Let’s face it: Most of the time we associate cruises with sunshine and beaches. So it’s startling to see a ship in snow. But there are more cruises than you’d think that feature the white stuff, either right up close or afar. From Alaska voyages and Antarctic expeditions to European Christmas market cruises and Norwegian fjords voyages, there are plenty of opportunities to combine cruising with snow. Here’s a gallery of shots provided by readers and Cruise Critic contributors showing ships playing in the snow. Depending on your feelings toward winter and all that is has to offer, the images will either send shivers up your spine or warm your heart.

      MSC Cruiseliner M.S. Fantasia is a ship I will never sail on again. Crew have no idea how to treat holiday makers. Crafts are for 4 year olds. Disembarking was chaotic in Barcelona , with people going on tours, people just going ashore and then people disembarking, luckily nobody was hurt with all the pushing and shoving. Not enough activities for such a large ship, Shows only lasted 35mins each night.
