    Wow! What a great idea and opportunity for these skaters. Skating on the high seas. Sounds like the perfect job. Thanks.

    What happens when the ship runs into stormy seas? Does the cruise director make an announcement, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to inform you that due to (hurricane) (typhoon) (gale-force winds) (you name it) this evening's ice gala has been cancelled"?

    I imagine that huge cruise ships have a small amount of "rocking" from side to side, as there has to be some kind of motion while the ship's engines are running. I guess this kind of action is something the skaters get used to. If they can skate outdoors in wintry conditions, they can probably adjust to skating on a ship.
