Similar plans are in place for the Resorts World One cruise ship.

Asia’s First Deployment

SES has revealed that Resorts World Cruises will be the first cruise line in Asia to utilize the new integrated offering, SES Cruise mPOWERED + Starlink PRO Service.

SES commented on the agreement, stating, “With our fully integrated, end-to-end service that combines the strengths of multiple orbits, we are pleased to deliver unparalleled connectivity that enhances cruise liners’ advanced onboard offerings and helps companies stay ahead in the industry.”
