Since updating to the new system, YouTube videos no longer automatically appear on my main blog, so here are two of the videos from my time onboard MV Minerva.

Dolphins Bow Surfing

Dolphins surfing on the pressure wave created by Minerva in the Mediterranean sea, filmed from the bridge wing.

Backing out of the ice

The view from the bridge wing as the cruise ship Minerva backed out of an ice sheet in Antarctica. The reason? It was decided that it would be easier to park the bow in the ice and use the engines on slow ahead, than it would be to constantly manoeuvre the ship to maintain position.
