Dream Cruises' World Dream gets ultra-fast connectivity with SES Networks

Guests and crew members onboard the recently launched World Dream, Dream Cruises´ second-mega ship under Genting Cruise Lines, will experience the transformational, ultra-fast and consistently reliable connectivity powered by SES Networks, SES has announced.

With the significantly enhanced connectivity, guests can stream countless movies, game online and share real-time vacation travel videos and photos across social media platforms.

The innovative, low-latency connectivity leverages SES´s O3b medium earth orbit (MEO) constellation and fully managed end-to-end services, enabling a high-performance onboard broadband service that delivers a premium experience for World Dream passengers equivalent to that of terrestrial onshore fibre services.

SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 12 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). SES focuses on value-added, end-to-end solutions in two key business units: SES Video and SES Networks. The company provides satellite communications services to broadcasters, content and Internet service providers, mobile and fixed network operators, governments and institutions. SES´s portfolio includes ASTRA, O3b and MX1, a media service provider that offers a full suite of innovative digital video and media services.
