Some classic photos from the early 90s which have recently gone viral. Classic moments which cruise ship passengers probably wished never happened.

The photos are by cruise ship photographer Ian Hughes from when he worked on ships from the early 90s. He’s managed to get that perfect moment which now the entire web is enjoying decades later. The photos have become so popular that at the time of writing this it seems the photographer’s own web sites is down.

“As Cruiseship Photographers it was our job to photograph passengers in various locations on and off the ship throughout their cruise. We would print every picture and display them for sale in the onboard Photo Gallery. At the end of each cruise I would have a quick look through all the unsold pictures before they were thrown away and I picked out all the ones that caught my eye.”

Some of the ships included in the photos are of the S.S. Norway, S.S. SeaBreeze, MS Seaward, the Britanis and Crown Princess, Star Odyssey and Regal Princess. Whats different about these photos are the passengers featured in them. A range of funny shots have been caught on camera, some are just the opposite of how you would expect people to react at that moment. Some of them even look like well-known actors and singers, well we’ll let you decide..
