Star Cruises introduces wireless services on cruise ships

Star Cruises and Wireless Maritime Services today jointly announce the launch of wireless services onboard Star Cruises’ ships in Asia. This follows the signing of a multi-year agreement between the two companies to provide cellular wireless services to guests and crew members on SuperStar Virgo, SuperStar Libra, SuperStar Aquarius and Star Pisces.

Starting from today, passengers and ship crews on SuperStar Aquarius can stay connected with friends and families while cruising to various destinations in Asia Pacific. The service enables them to make and receive telephone calls, send text messages, access emails and surf the internet at rates similar to international roaming. The service will be rolled out gradually on the other three vessels.

Mr Kenny Ng, Senior Vice President, Information Technology, Genting Hong Kong, “We are pleased to work together with Wireless Maritime Services to provide quality mobile services for our cruise passengers and ship crews. As a leading cruise line in Asia Pacific, Star Cruises continues to enrich our passengers’ cruising experience with value-adding technologies as well as new travel products.”
