Connected Cruises

Fastest internet at sea

SES Networks

Cruise passengers want ubiquitous and seamless access to their applications and services - even in the middle of the ocean. We enable high-quality connectivity at sea, ensuring that cruise operators can deliver the fibre-equivalent broadband internet that is essential to an exceptional customer experience.

The SES Networks Signature Cruise solution supplies high-speed, low latency broadband connectivity to the world's leading cruise operators.

Fibre-equivalent broadband

  • The low-latency provided by our O3b MEO constellation is augmented by our global GEO fleet, ensuring a seamless and ubiquitous connectivity experience wherever cruise ships sail
  • Dedicated follow-the-ship beams deliver up to 1 Gbps to a single ship
  • Robust, committed service model allows you to address passenger demand predictably and cost-effectively
  • A broad portfolio of additional services that help cruise lines further improve the guest experience, including analytics, maritime voice and a captive portal solution

Future-proofing cruise connectivity

Our existing low-latency O3b MEO service will be augmented in 2022 by our next-generationO3b mPOWER satellite constellation, ensuring cruise operators will be able to stay ahead of customer demand. O3b mPOWER will deliver unprecedented flexibility and scalability to the cruise market, ensuring cruise operators will be able to stay ahead of passengers' skyrocketing bandwidth demands and continue to provide them with the best performing broadband at sea.

Cruise Industry News estimates over 50% of cruise guests use a ship’s WiFi-enabled internet services while onboard
The average smartphone is expected to generate over 24Gb of data traffic per month by 2025
