A Russian cruise ship carrying more than 100 passengers is stuck in the ice in Antarctica.

Most of those on board are British tourists who paid more than $22,000, to watch rare emperor penguins.

The tour company says the cruise ship is a former ice-breaker, and the tourists are not in any danger.

The ship is expected to get moving again within a couple of days.
