• by Tyler Durden

The standard internet on cruise ships is awful and would make anyone absolutely frustrated trying to conduct a video conferencing call.

The "high-speed, low-latency connectivity" will allow "for a better onboard experience for guests and crew fleetwide," Royal Caribbean said in a statement

Installation on Celebrity Cruises and Silversea Cruises ships and all new vessels for each brand should be completed in 1Q23.

"This technology will provide game-changing internet connectivity onboard our ships, enhancing the cruise experience for guests and crew alike. It will improve and enable more high-bandwidth activities like video streaming as well as activities like video calls," said Jason Liberty, president and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean.

SpaceX Vice President of Starlink Sales Jonathan Hofeller said Starlink on cruise ships "will make their passengers' getaways even more luxurious."
