Can you imagine an ice rink on a cruise ship? Are you considering the possibility of offering ice skating on the deck of a ship? Of course it’s possible! Synthetic ice surfaces facilitate this option thanks to the ecological material that works under any temperature. Let’s talk about cruises that sail through tropical climates such as the Caribbean, or for those cruises that sail through cold climates such as the Nordic countries.

A relaxing vacation within the comforts of a cruise is one of the most popular vacation options. Today’s competition is fierce with so many different cruise lines and regions of the world competing for tourists: cruises in the Caribbean, in the Mediterranean Sea, in the Norwegian fjords… an endless offering that forces the different cruise ship lines to look for exclusive amenities that can differentiate them from their competitors.

Within this competitive environment the possibility of installing an ice rink on a cruise ship is increasingly in demand. Nobody imagines a cruise without a swimming pool and more and more cruise companies are betting on ice skating rinks to beef up their on-board recreation offerings.
