    Because, seconds before the crash, they ran out of ice onboard.

    Always bad to have "a little leakage downstairs."
    It's worse if you're on a boat.

    Someone's not too clear on the definition of "irony", I take it.

    Maybe they were there to see the melting icebergs and were then punctured by one. Ironic?

    Its Ironic because the ship's name is the "MS Explorer" and it crashed.

    If it didn't crash and went to have a safe voyage THEN it would be ironic.

    Half way through the voyage the captain was asked to verify the ships genuine advantage.
