Leisure travel giant, Carnival Corporation announced MedallionNet this week. A new service the company expects to be a game-changing connectivity service, which will deliver guests fast, easy-to-access Wi-Fi with exceptional signal strength, and unprecedented service consistency.
By combining multiple sources of bandwidth MedallionNet is able to achieve the largest shipboard network, with a groundbreaking number of shipboard access points, for ships at sea. The unique configuration of the multi-band antennas also minimizes the potential impact local or seasonal weather conditions may have on guests connectivity.
“Staying connected is inextricably linked to our daily life experiences and that now extends to the vacation experience, even when sailing in the middle of the sea,” said John Padgett, chief experience and innovation officer for Carnival Corporation.
“MedallionNet will set the new standard for Wi-Fi service at sea and we look forward to rolling it out to our guests. Our top priority is doing everything we can to exceed guest expectations, and by listening closely to our guests, we know Wi-Fi connectivity is important to many of our guests. For guests who want to disconnect, they are free to do so. But for those who want to stay connected, MedallionNet will make it easy for them – and that includes being able to easily send photos, videos and messages letting everyone know they are having a fabulous vacation”, John added.
