Dream Cruises to implement SES connectivity system across its fleet
Dream Cruises, a brand of Genting Cruise Lines, has agreed a deal to implement SES Networks’ Signature Cruise Solution to provide connectivity services to its passenger ship fleet, comprised of World Dream, Genting Dream and Explorer Dream.
The SES system will be available immediately to guests on the newly-launched Explorer Dream, and will be introduced onboard Genting Dream in September this year, completing the fleet-wide implementation following the launch of the managed service onboard World Dream, Dream Cruises’ second cruise ship, in 2017.
SES Networks’ Signature Cruise Solution package combines satellite connectivity via the company’s O3b medium earth orbit (MEO) constellation, backed up by its geostationary (GEO) satellite fleet for network resilience.
“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.”
