Fibre-Equivalent Broadband for Cruise Ships at Sea
Our cruise offering helps cruise lines elevate their guest experience via the high-speed, low-latency broadband connectivity provided by our O3b MEO system.
Addressing On-Board Data Demand
Today’s cruise passengers want to be able to stream, share and stay connected, which means cruise operators need an on-board network able to support that. SES provides high-quality connectivity at sea, ensuring that operators can deliver the fibre-equivalent broadband cruise internet that is essential to an exceptional customer experience.
Ensuring Seamless Connectivity Wherever, Whenever
Our O3b MEO constellation provides the low-latency, high-speed connectivity that cruise lines need to support their passengers’ broadband requirements and power their guest experience systems. Our GEO system ensures network resilience and service continuity, with automatic switching between the MEO and GEO orbits via advanced multi-band antennas and software-defined networking.
A broad portfolio of additional services allows cruise operators to further enhance the customer experience. These include:
- Optimisation technology for an efficient use of network resources
- An analytics solution to help cruise lines better understand customer and device behaviour
- Voice services for both the passengers and crew
The existing O3b MEO system will be augmented by O3b mPOWER, our next-generation satellite system that will provide unprecedented flexibility and scalability to the cruise market.
