Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas has gone live with the O3bMaritime high throughput Ka-band broadband system, with the service claimed to offer the ship more bandwidth “than all other cruise ships in the world put together.”

The service is being put to the test as the vessel undertakes its first voyage with the satellite service on November 12th, a two-day VIP cruise from Port Liberty, New Jersey.

“We are delighted to support the launch of the world’s first smart ship with Royal Caribbean,” said Simon Maher, VP Enterprise for O3b.

“Quantum of the Seas uses O3b’s maritime offering O3bMaritime to provide lightning fast download speeds and performance for both passengers and crew at one fourth the response time of traditional satellite systems.”

“O3bMaritime is the only satellite system capable of enabling cruise line guests and crew broadband services on par with onshore telecommunication standards.”
