Guests will have access to high-speed connections while sailing and in port
Windstar Cruises announced the launch of its Starlink Maritime high-speed satellite internet across its fleet.
Speaking about the initiative, Windstar Cruises technology director Gregg Wagner said: “I'm thrilled to be working with Anuvu and Starlink to offer our guests the latest in satellite technology.
“When the ships are inside the service area, faster speeds will alleviate much of the frustration felt at peak use times.”
Windstar Cruises launched the internet on the Star Pride recently and plans to implement Starlink across most of its global fleet by mid-2023.
Starlink will be available on the Star Legend this spring, followed by ships Wind Surf, Wind Star and Star Breeze.
Wagner added: “Starlink is yet to be available worldwide, but Windstar Cruises is excited to be among the first in the cruise industry to offer this cutting-edge technology. The addition of high-speed internet service with our current geostationary satellite service will enable guests to stay connected to family and friends.”
The Windstar Cruises fleet currently uses geostationary satellite service Anuvu to provide internet access. The addition of Starlink technology will make the existing connection faster and more reliable.
