Cruise line prank tells guests not to 'fornicate' with pizza

A tweet doing the rounds online claiming a cruise liner has asked guests not to ‘fornicate’ with pizza has been ousted as a prank.

Norweigan Cruise Line, the company who run Holy Ship! - an electronic dance music festival held aboard a cruise ship - has denied that they distributed a letter to guests detailing how the food should only be consumed.

“We must remind you that foods available in the café are for consumption only,” the letter said.

“Due to incidents on previous sailings in which patrons engaged in uncouth behavior in the café, we feel it is our duty to remind guests that pizza is for eating, not fornicating.

“Sexual acts with our handcrafted pizzas can bring unintended health consequences and can pose a safety hazard for other passengers aboard our journey.”

However, in a statement released to Noisey, Norwegian Cruise Line said the letter was a prank carried out by one of their guests.

"As soon as the ship’s team discovered the letters, they immediately collected all that they could find," a spokesperson said.

Holy Ship! gives revelers the option of staying onboard for either three days or four days.

The website describes the ship as “an awesome festival” in the middle of the ocean.

“Your favorite Artists and DJs performing in the middle of the ocean, while you dance and relax with 4000 new best friends, surrounded by every amenity you could need… there really is no other experience better than this,” the website reads.
