VALENCIA, Calif., Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Cunard has announced it is rolling out a new Wi-Fi service on board as it launches SpaceX's Starlink across its fleet.
Starlink, the leader in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite technology, will provide guests with greater capacity across Cunard ships, allowing for sharing photos and videos, streaming films, and enjoying other content on board with a more reliable Wi-Fi connection at even faster speeds.
The roll-out of Starlink aboard Cunard Queens began in June 2023, with the service due to be available in both public spaces and staterooms on Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth by the end of 2023.
Cunard's newest ship, Queen Anne, will launch with the service in May 2024.
Cunard President Katie McAlister said: "Sharing unforgettable moments with friends and family back at home is an important part of any holiday. Whether it's uploading a picture of a sunset as you sail away from a newly discovered destination or catching up with the news, live events, or content from home, Starlink will make it even easier for our guests and colleagues to stay connected."
Starlink vice president of commercial sales Jonathan Hofeller said: "High-speed internet is critical to our modern lifestyle both at home and when travelling. We're excited that Cunard guests and crew will benefit from an improved Wi-Fi service on board wherever they are in the world."
