Luxury cruise line, Seabourn, has equipped its fleet with Wi-Fi connectivity utilising SpaceX’s Starlink, the supplier of low earth orbit (LEO) satellite technology.

The upgraded satcoms provides Seabourn’s guests with faster service, greater connectivity and more reliable Wi-Fi wherever Starlink’s services are available, the company explained.

“Following the positive feedback we received from our guests from the successful roll-out of Starlink’s enhanced connectivity on our expedition ships, we are thrilled to share that both our ocean and expedition ships in our ultra-luxury fleet now feature Starlink.

“Our guests can now choose to connect or disconnect as they wish during their extraordinary journeys with Seabourn,” said Natalya Leahy, Seabourn President.

“Whether exploring the Polar regions, cruising the Mediterranean, or navigating across the oceans, our guests can now enjoy an even more dependable connection, enabling them to effortlessly share those cherished ‘Seabourn Moments’ and experiences with their loved ones when they are sailing with us,” she said.

“We are so proud to provide a high level of enhanced technology for our guests who want to stay connected, whether it’s sharing their personal experiences with friends and family or staying connected with work,” added Kathleen Erickson, Seabourn’s Vice President of Technology. “Having this technology will only enhance their experience when they sail on Seabourn.”

Starlink is now available on Seabourn’s two new purpose-built ultra-luxury expedition ships, ’Seabourn Venture’ and ’Seabourn Pursuit’, as well as the ocean ships, ’Seabourn Sojourn’, ‘Seabourn Quest’, ‘Seabourn Encore’ and ’Seabourn Ovation’.
