Royal Caribbean’s VOOM Makes a Splash

Posted July 13th, 2016

Creating big waves in the cruising world, Royal Caribbean International’s incomparable VOOM high-speed internet service is now available on all 24 cruise ships in the fleet. Touted as the fastest internet service at sea, VOOM ensures passengers are fully connected, up to date and entertained around the clock.

Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, described VOOM as revolutionary and a game-changer for the industry, “Everything our guests and crew can do online at home, they will now be able to do from onboard all of our ships around the world”.

Indeed, whether you want to stream the latest episode of your favourite TV show on Netflix, watch a movie by the pool, or listen to a Spotify playlist as you walk around the ship, you will have familiar apps and online programs at your fingertips. That means you can also be the envy of friends and family by posting special travel moments on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat, or sharing your adventures with loved ones by chatting on FaceTime or Skype. Thanks to VOOM, it’s never been easier to experience a little bit of home while away – and it doesn’t matter whether you’re sailing in the Caribbean, discovering the east coast of Australia or soaking up island life in Hawaii.

To achieve this impressive feat, the cruise line has made a huge investment into outfitting newer ships with cutting-edge technology, as well as upgrading its existing fleet. Using a combination of WI-FI service providers, Royal Caribbean International provides more overall bandwidth fleet-wide compared to any other cruise line. Internet speed is also twice as fast as it was previously and the cost of this state-of-the-art service is now less expensive and on par with many land-based resorts.

Guests can choose between two internet packages: Surf, and Surf and Stream. Both can be used on up to four devices, such as a laptop or iPad. Surf allows cruisers to explore the Web, use their email and share images on social media. Pricing is per device and a family package is also available. Surf and Stream ups the ante, providing passengers with the same perks as Surf, but adding the ability to stream movies and music, and use video chat apps. Similarly, this package is available for a daily fee per device, with discounts for additional devices and family packages. Royal Caribbean International’s pricing model stands out from the usual per-minute charge currently offered by other cruise lines.

With a focus on innovation and industry ‘firsts’, Royal Caribbean International has been delighting passengers for over 40 years. Jaw-dropping shows, thrilling experiences, luxurious spa treatments, educational programmes, sumptuous cuisine and so much more – VOOM is just one of many highlights of a Royal Caribbean International cruise, and you can discover this for yourself by making a booking today!
