Guests and crew members on board the recently-delivered ‘World Dream’, Dream Cruises’ second ship under Genting Cruise Lines, will experience ultra-fast and reliable connectivity powered by SES Networks.
With the significantly enhanced connectivity, guests can stream movies, game online and share real-time vacation travel videos and photos across social media platforms, SES claimed.
The low-latency connectivity leverages SES’ O3b medium earth orbit (MEO) constellation and fully managed end-to-end services, enabling a high-performance on board broadband service that delivers an experience for ‘World Dream’ passengers equivalent to that of terrestrial onshore fibre services.
“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, Dream Cruises President. “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.”
“SES Networks is privileged to be associated with Dream Cruises and to offer its services on board ‘World Dream’,” said Simon Maher, SES Vice President, Global Maritime Services. “We share Dream Cruises’ passion in delivering the highest level of service and in offering transformational and inspirational voyages at sea.
“Maritime connectivity powered by SES Networks is setting a new standard of enhanced guest connectivity experience, unmatched in terms of scale, performance and technological diversity. SES Networks is uniquely positioned to lead the market in enabling the highest performing Wi-Fi connectivity at sea.”
