Want to stay connected while on your next cruise? Kiss the slow internet days goodbye as every cruise ship in Royal Caribbean’s fleet will have VOOM internet by the end of the week, RoyalCaribbeanBlog.com is reporting.
During an earnings call with investors, Michael Bayley, CEO of Royal Caribbean, said that every Royal Caribbean ship will have high speed internet by May 1, 2016.
Royal Caribbean’s VOOM internet service is the fastest internet offered by any of the mainstream cruise lines. With unlimited packages starting at $15 a day, it is also much more affordable than traditional cruise internet which was often extremely slow and pricey.
Royal Caribbean first rolled out VOOM internet service with the debut of Quantum of the Seas in 2014. VOOM has transformed internet at sea and made it easier for passengers to stay connected. I was able to upload a full HD video to YouTube while on Quantum of the Seas soon after the ship debuted.
