The short answer is it has to do with the the light spectrum, and the way light is filtered through the ice. The thicker the ice, the more blue-green color it displays. Regardless of what our on board geologist, Wolfgang, might suggest, the blue color IS NOT a result of reflecting light off the blue eyes of the rare Antarctic ice worms... Oh, geologist-humor!
