Recent research has explored the size and nature of the cruise shipindustry and to a lesser extent the impacts of social interaction uponthe experiences of individuals while cruising. However, there is littleresearch that examines the performative aspects of social groupsthat form as a result of social interaction. Using a neo-tribal lens,we examine this phenomenon in the context of passengers onboard an Antarctic expedition cruise ship. The neo-tribal lensoffers insights into the lifestyles, sense of belonging, rituals andmeeting places that form amongst groups of passengers. Thisresearch progresses the conceptualization of neo-tribes bysuggesting that neo-tribes are a phenomenon that may occur inconfined, liminal places. In doing so it advances an understandingof the outcomes of the cruise ship experience by looking pastindividualistic outcomes, to the behavioural aspects that canresult from undertaking a cruise ship holiday in Antarctica.
