SES Networks Provides Connectivity for Dream Cruises Fleet
Dream Cruises, a brand of Genting Cruise Lines, selected SES Networks’ Signature Cruise Solution to provide fiber-like service to its passenger ship fleet, comprised of World Dream, Genting Dream, and Explorer Dream, for the Asian luxury market. SES Networks’ Signature Cruise Solution combines the low latency of its O3b Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite constellation with a fully managed end-to-end service, backed up by its Geostationary Orbit (GEO) fleet to help ensure network resilience.
“Today’s cruise passengers demand excellent connectivity even when they are travelling on the high seas. As part of our efforts to provide our guests with the best possible services and amenities on board our ships, we partnered with SES Networks because of their high-speed capability to deliver a terrestrial broadband-like internet experience in some of the most challenging of conditions,” said Thatcher Brown, President at Dream Cruises.
“A Dream Cruise has the ability to deliver inspirational voyages at sea that create memories to last a lifetime. A key part of that adventure nowadays is the digital experience. Our Signature Cruise Solution ensures that passengers onboard Explorer Dream – along with World Dream and Genting Dream – will experience the new standard of enhanced guest connectivity,” said Simon Maher, Vice President Global Sales, Cruise Maritime Services at SES Networks. “Because SES Networks and Dream Cruises have shared values around delivering transformational and inspirational experiences at sea, we are incredibly proud to partner with them to enable this level of service.”
