A few weeks ago, we told you that Royal Caribbean wanted to start including Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite Internet on its cruises. Well, it seems that all the details have already been fixed, because the company has just confirmed it.
Through social media and a press release, Royal Caribbean Group confirmed that it will become the first cruise company to include Starlink satellite Internet, which will offer much better browsing speeds for guests, even when they are in the middle of the ocean. This technology will be available on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruise and Silversea ships.

According to the information, the installation of Starlink will begin immediately on all necessary units, and the process is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2023.
Starlink can be very positive for both guests and workers, as it will offer much better connection speeds and greater bandwidth. This means that people will be able to carry out more demanding activities, such as video streaming or video calls, without so many problems.
“Our purpose as a company is to provide the best vacation experiences to our guests responsibly, and this new offering, which is the largest public deployment of Starlink high-speed Internet in the travel industry so far, demonstrates our commitment to that purpose.” said Jason Liberty, president and chief executive officer of Royal Caribbean Group.
Starlink is increasingly expanding its presence in the world. Remember that for a few months it has already been available in Mexico and, in fact, it has just drastically reduced its prices.
