Cruise & Ferries
Today, providing uninterrupted, high quality internet connectivity at sea and in port is essential – especially when you have to deliver seamless business operations and entertainment on demand to demanding customers and crew. From Mega-cruise ships with thousands on board to an adventure cruise ship in remote locations, Cobham SATCOM state-of-the-art antennas give you a stable foundation of countless multi-antenna hybrid connectivity installations that keep your connected, wherever, whenever.
Unlock best-in-class internet experience 24/7, anywhere in the world
Constant, high throughput Internet connectivity is the key criteria for cruise companies to achieve the best guest satisfaction ratings. Cruise ships of any size, from the awe-inspiring ‘floating towns’ with 6000+ people looking to access social media and browse the Internet from anywhere on board, to smaller expedition vessels or the luxury holidays segment, guests all expect to be able to connect at will and experience the same speeds and reliability as at home. Likewise, marine operations, on board businesses like shops and restaurants and the cruise company’s corporate network require just as much if not more throughput, positioning cruise as the most service quality and bandwidth hungry maritime satellite communications sector today.
Cobham SATCOM has perfected both the approach and technology to meet such high expectations from the diverse stakeholders in cruise and indeed, the related ferries market. We provide antennas as the foundation for the world’s most powerful and complex maritime satellite services, delivered by expert service providers that view multi-band, -orbit and -antenna networks as the only current solution to deliver network resilience and capacity for the largest cruise vessels. These hybrid networks also ensure a more robust service for smaller, boutique and adventure cruise vessels, where guests want to be off the beaten track, but stay on the Internet.

Streamlined installation and near-zero maintenance
Upgrading speed and capacity on large- and mega-cruise ships is a significant project. Adding new capabilities can take weeks and ships must be docked for much of the installation, costing millions in lost revenue. By optimizing the installation of such complex networks, Cobham SATCOM antennas streamline the entire process dockside, and deliver the incredible throughput and reliability needed out on the Oceans.
