Second ship signed to O3b service

O3b Networks has signed a second multi-year deal with Royal Caribbean Cruises to provide satellite broadband services aboard one of its cruise ships, Allure of the Seas.

More than 8,000 guests, staff and crew members travelling the Caribbean will use the service for connectivity at sea.

Royal Caribbean was the first to agree a deal for O3b’s forthcoming maritime offering O3bMaritime, for the Allure of the Seas’ sister ship, Oasis of the Seas, last summer.

“Cruise ship guests expect the same quality voice and internet services they experience on land,” said Bill Martin, chief information officer for Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

“We are proud to be the first cruise line to offer guests and crew aboard our innovative Oasis class of ships connectivity services that are in a league of their own.”

“This latest agreement underlines our confidence in O3b Networks and the game-changing level of connectivity it is set to provide aboard our ships.”
