The ship i went to Antarctica on is sinking! NOOOOO!!! It was/is such a beautiful ship! We only had a reunion last week and now our ship is heading to the bottom of the ocean. so sad! (and to think i never paid much attention during the safety excercise because i didn't think it could sink). Oh man, I'm off to call EVERYBODY - except, i have no phone... *emails* Long live the MV EXPLORER - you were loved.

EDIT: NOOOOOO it sank!

First of all, you went to Antarctica? That's cool - literally. Secondly, that sucks! :( R.I.P. MV Explorer!

We went to Antarctica in January 06 with a school trip - it was the best thing ever and the ship and its crew were wonderful. i don't think i've ever had a better time. to think it's sinking is so sad. scarily, the hull breech is on the side where i stayed and when we were down near the Lemmire channel, a large berge scraped across the hull. I never thought it would sink though. it seemed so much a part of Antarctica. we were planning another trip on it for next year! *hugs sinking ship*

Whoa! What happened to make it sink? I'm glad you weren't on it and that you didn't die. *huggles*

It hit an underwater ice flow (really nasty) and that punctured a rather large gash in the lower compartment. Everybody who went on the cruise has been ringing each other all day. I loved that ship! *cries* Long live the Little Red Ship.

*huggles back*

THAT was the ship you went to Antarctica on ? I read about it, so sad.I´m just glad all the passengers were saved.

Yes, that was our Little Red Ship. Despite what the news has been saying, they were very strict on safety. It's good news that no one was harmed and, in a way I guess, it's nice that she'll remain a part of Antarctica forever. *is angsty* lol

You went to Antartica! That's totally awesome. I am jealous!
Poor ship! At least it is buried in it's element and not in some ship cementary! lol (that's supposed to be funny, I guess it makes more sense in french) **goes back into hiding**

Totally forgot to comment *blames politics*

I saw pictures and videos about the accident in the news yesterday, and there was a long article in our newspaper in the morning. So it seems to be a big thing all over the world. It's a bit strange that we talked about your trip only recently, and now the ship is gone.
