Marlink’s has rolled out new coverage for its high-speed internet services for vessels plying the Northwest Passage and other remote destinations.

The enhanced coverage, augmented with additional satellites and overlapping beams in the Marlink VSAT network, ensures full connection regardless of destination and sailing route during this peak period.

According to Marlink, guests on expedition cruise ships have expectations that on board connectivity services will be fast and reliable wherever they are. Marlink’s new capacity enables guests to upload videos and photos of their vacation and stay in contact with loved ones and the office.

With newly bolstered Ku-band coverage, Marlink is bringing dependable, high-quality data and voice services to seagoing vessels in the remote arctic waterways of the 900-mile Northwest Passage, an increasingly popular destination. The improved satellite services additionally support safe and efficient vessel operations, while the benefits of always-on connectivity are vital for crew welfare and recreation.

“The adventure cruise market is an exciting and rapidly developing category which has come to exemplify the demand for high-speed, high-quality internet services in even the most uncharted corners of the globe,” said Tore Morten Olsen, President Maritime, Marlink. “Marlink’s services enable cruise companies to develop exciting new itineraries, as reflected by our comprehensive coverage in the Northwest Passage for the summer season, added coverage in other previously under-served regions and the development of special High Speed Zones for bandwidth savvy clients.”
