Royal Caribbean Cruises to add NavBox to 49 ships

Royal Caribbean Cruises (RCC) has signed a deal with NAVTOR to install the NavBox system across its entire corporate fleet of 49 vessels, spanning the six different operating companies within RCC.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}NavBox, launched in 2013, automatically downloads, distributes and updates all vessel navigational charts and publications, and is usually used alongside NAVTOR’s range of ENC-based services.

The full extent of the agreement covers the delivery of all official digital charts and publications to RCC vessels across the brands Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, TUI Cruises, Pullmantur, Azamara Club Cruises and Skysea.

The deal also includes the soon-to-launch Symphony of the Seas, which will hold the title of the world’s largest cruise ship when it embarks on its maiden voyage on 21 April 2018.

“The benefits of this innovative concept across our portfolio of advanced vessels are compelling. We will now be able to drastically reduce our navigators’ administrative workloads, allowing them to focus on important operational tasks and optimal safety, while ensuring compliance with automatic updates,” said Paul Kingsbury, manager of nautical assets, safety, and programmes at Royal Caribbean Cruises.

“At the same time the synergy between our vessels and land-based teams will enable us to have a complete overview of fleet-wide operations and navigational needs. NavBox is another innovative development for a company that, as we know from working together for the past four years, is dedicated to driving forward e-navigation and adding value for its customers. We look forward to seeing its benefits across the fleet.”{/mprestriction}
