Captain Bjarne Bahne Larsen, 48, passed away on Saturday, February 17, 2018 while aboard the Seabourn Quest in Antarctica (see video below). Seabourn Quest was en-route from Ushuaia (Argentina) to Port Stanley (East Falkland Island).

Captain Larsen joined Seabourn Cruises in May 2009.  Prior to Seabourn Cruises he worked for Fred Olsen Cruise Line from 2007 to 2009 and Hurtigruten Cruise Line from 2001 to 2007.

After spending most of his career sailing through ice, he was the one who encouraged Seabourn to fortify the Quest and try expedition cruising. See the video below and learn more about Larsen on his Cruise Ship Deaths page.
