High-speed Internet provides guests with game-changing connectivity, delivering an enhanced yachting experienceMIAMI, FL, September 7, 2022 — A satellite Internet constellation operated by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Starlink delivers high-speed Internet connectivity on board SeaDream’s twin luxury yachts, SeaDream I and SeaDream II.
The news follows the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s decision earlier this summer to authorize SpaceX to provide satellite Internet to vehicles in motion.
In operation as part of SeaDream’s $10 million renovation investment, Starlink is the world’s first and largest satellite constellation using a low-Earth orbit capable of supporting high-bandwidth activities such as video streaming, online gaming, video calls, and more. By placing their Starlink constellation in low-Earth orbit, SpaceX can deliver faster Internet than other systems by decreasing the distance that information must travel to reach users.
“I am proud to announce that SeaDream is at the forefront of technology, becoming the first boutique travel line to implement Starlink on board. This innovation optimizes our guests’ experience by putting high-speed Internet at their fingertips—so they can stream their favorite entertainment, work remotely, and connect with friends and family back home,” said Andreas Brynestad of SeaDream.SeaDream Yacht Club’s 56-stateroom twin yachts are highly regarded for their 5-star service, award-winning cuisine, and intimate onboard ambiance, with all activities offered in the open air. Their modernizations include numerous touchpoints, with each upgrade designed to align with the desires of today’s luxury traveler. Under the care of renowned European architects and designers, these meticulously crafted renovations provide guests with state-of-the-art technology, functional and enhanced stateroom space, and luxurious lounging areas on all decks.
Brynestad added, “The small size of our yachts provides a distinct advantage, in that we can deliver a larger amount of Internet per-person on board—quite possibly making us the fastest Internet on the seas. In the two short months since introducing Starlink, we have received remarkable positive feedback from guests and crew alike.”
