Piste of the Seas: April Fools 2017

By EmmaWednesday 12th April 2017

At Royal Caribbean, we always like to be fun and playful when we can, so there was no way that we would miss out on being the top pranksters of April Fools' Day!

Introducing, 'Piste of the Seas'…

If you did happen to miss the news, we'll give you the heads up! The world's first ever ski resort at sea, 'Piste of the Seas', was only an April Fools' Day prank… but you never know, one day perhaps! We're curious… who fell for our April Fools' Day joke? We hope we had you convinced! After all, we did make it in the news for the best April Fools' Day jokes of 2017. 'Piste of the Seas' offered the dream holiday for those torn between cruising or skiing… after all, why pick when you could experience both? We visioned chalet-styled rooms, five real snow runs, a ski-lift and après-ski restaurants, bars and spas! Sounds unreal you say, (excuse the sarcasm!).
  • Wood-panelled, Chalet-Styled rooms - the perfect way to keep snug after a day on the slopes!
  • An onboard ski lift - get ready to admire the best views of the beautiful ocean!
  • There’s no better place to learn how to ski than onboard – after all, we will be training our onboard sports team who will qualify as Level 2 ski instructors!
Our Managing Director, Ben Bouldin even got in on the action - “Our ships push the boundaries of innovation and 'Piste of the Seas' provides a best of both worlds.” Unfortunately, 'Piste of the Seas' was just a bit of fun for April Fools' Day and this extraordinary ship will not be joining our fleet anytime soon… We know our ships are constantly pushing the boundaries, but a ski resort at sea is probably a step too far even for us!
While you probably won't be skiing at sea with us anytime soon, we're certain that you'll still find our ships in the fleet extraordinary. Start exploring today!
