Different cruise ships have various activities and rites of passage for their guests and one of the most unique might just be an outdoor BBQ. On my ship the last evening was a melancholy one; the guests weren’t quite ready for the remarkable experience to end. To cheer us all up the staff planned a unique dinner, an old fashioned BBQ on the deck of the ship. Although the temperature had dropped to below freezing, everyone stood on the deck enjoying homemade Chilean food, bottles of beer and more importantly each other’s company. There are many strange traditions involved with a trip to Antarctica and part of the fun is being initiated into this very exclusive club.
