Fastest internet at sea on Royal Caribbean

Fastest internet at sea on Royal CaribbeanRoyal Caribbean International is making VOOM, its exclusive, high-speed internet service – the fastest at sea – available fleetwide on its 24 innovative ships sailing to the most popular destinations around the world.

VOOM allows guests vacationing with Royal Caribbean to stay connected and to stream their favourite music, movies and TV shows to stay up to date on the latest happenings. Whether they are posting envy-inducing vacation photos on Instagram or Snapchat, or video-chatting with loved ones back home using FaceTime or Skype, travellers can share their adventures in real-time with family and friends. Guests can even relax or chill poolside while catching up on their favourite TV show or the newest movie.

“VOOM is revolutionising the onboard experience for our guests as well as for our crew and it is truly a game-changer for the industry,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “Everything our guests and crew can do online at home, they will now be able to do from onboard all of our ships around the world.”

Through a combination of Wi-Fi service providers, Royal Caribbean is able to deliver more overall bandwidth fleet-wide than any other cruise line. The enhancements will provide speeds at least twice as fast as before and also have enabled the cruise line to provide service at prices that are less expensive than ever before – comparable to most land-based resorts.

Travellers sailing on all Royal Caribbean ships can enjoy the fastest internet at sea at a flat price with guests choosing from two packages:

  • Surf, which provides guests the opportunity to surf the web, stay in touch via email, and share their vacation photos on social media. Surf packages start at $12.99 per device per day with additional devices added at a discounted cost. Family packages – 5 devices or more – start as low as $8.99 per device per day.
  • Surf and Stream, which is ideal for guests looking to do more than connect via email or social channels, but also want the capability to stream movies and music from Netflix or Spotify, and to connect using video chat apps such as Skype. This package is available for $17.99 per device per day. Additional devices can be connected at a discount and family packages – 5 devices or more – start as low as $11.99 per device per day.

This pricing is a significant improvement from the standard programs currently offered throughout the industry, many of which charge on a per-minute basis.

Royal Caribbean International is an award-winning global cruise brand with a 46-year legacy of innovation and introducing industry “firsts” never before seen at sea.  The cruise line features an expansive and unmatched array of features and amenities only found on Royal Caribbean including, jaw-dropping, Broadway-style entertainment and industry-acclaimed programming that appeals to families and adventurous vacationers alike.
