Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have “Titanic” B.C. Ferries moment


When you are reigning Olympic ice dancing gold medalists, it’s hard not to feel like the king (and queen) of the world…and there’s Instagram Stories to turn it into a “Titanic” moment.

Sailing on a B.C. Ferries vessel from Vancouver Island to the lower mainland Thursday, ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir channelled their best Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio on deck.


The duo were part of a fleet of figure skating talent making their way to Vancouver for the last night of Stars On Ice’s Canadian tour.

Virtue and Moir were joined on board and on ice by skating stars Eric Radford and Meagan Duhamel,Elvis Stojko, Kaetlyn Osmond, and more–including V.I.A.’s favourite ice man, Patrick Chan–making it for a very special closing night, and, as a delightful bonus, birthday celebration for Virtue, who turned 29 on May 17.

And the BC Ferries Twitter account handler for the day (who usually has to deal with angry customer tweets) got to have a little movie magic fun, too:


There were no reports of any sinkings, icebergs, foggy car windows, or valuable gems going overboard.
