Satellite operator SES is supplying its connectivity to passengers and crew aboard Genting Cruise Lines ‘World Dream’ vessel. Hong Kong-based Genting mostly operates in the Asia Pacific region, and runs the Star Cruises, Dream Cruises and Crystal Cruise vessels.
Guests and crew aboard World Dream can access ultra-fast broadband with movies, games and the ability to send their own travel videos back to friends.
The service comes from SES Network’s O3b division. “[It] enables a high-performance onboard broadband service that delivers a premium experience for World Dream passengers equivalent to that of terrestrial onshore fibre services,” says SES.
“Guests today expect high-performance connectivity to be easily accessible especially when they are on a luxury cruise ship like World Dream,” said Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. “Partnering with SES Networks is a win-win situation for us. Not only does it enable us to deliver a truly immersive broadband experience to our cruise guests, it also empowers our customers to decide how and when they want to stay connected.”
