Damage caused to the Silver Explorer by a giant wave was sufficiently severe for Silversea to cut short the cruise and to cancel its next sailing on 21st January.
The incident happened in rough weather while the ship was on an 18-night voyage in South America. Four crew suffered minor injuries during the incident, which saw a wave strike in the waters between Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica.
The luxury cruise line subsequently confirmed all 133 passengers and 113 crew were safe.
The ship has returned to Ushuaia in Argentina, from where it departed in early January.
