The world's largest cruise line, Royal Caribbean, has announced that it will give its ships' fleets Starlink broadband satellite internet access.

The dishes, which will be put on its Royal Caribbean International, Silversea Cruises, and Celebrity Cruises ships, are intended to "improve the onboard experience for passengers and crews fleetwide."

On Royal Caribbean cruise ships, Starlink will install satellite broadband.

Earlier this year, SpaceX introduced Starlink Maritime for boats, which has a $5,000 monthly fee in addition to a $10,000 hardware investment.

According to Royal Caribbean Blog, the firm tested the service earlier this year by selling packages dubbed "Voom Surf" and "Voom Surf & Stream."

When the service is fully commercialised, however, those speeds could change based on how well-liked it is and how many Starlink dishes Royal Caribbean deploys on each ship.

Staffing, inflation, and other concerns have contributed to the cruise industry's difficulties since the outbreak.

While this is going on, Starlink is actively courting the tourism market by announcing alliances with Hawaiian Airlines and JSC and more recently introducing a Starlink service for RVs and campers.
