Cruise operator Celebrity Cruises has completed the first stage of its rollout of high-speed internet services onboard Celebrity Reflection.
With the improved capability that sees bandwidth increased by approximately four times, the service, known as Xcelerate, will soon roll out to the remainder of the premium cruise line’s large ships.
“Xcelerate is going to give our digitally connected guests a new opportunity to share their amazing travel experiences with the world in real time, whether docked in Europe’s sought-after ports of call or gliding through the ocean on all of our large ships, anywhere in the world,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity Cruises CEO and president. “We know that this is what our guests expect – it’s what we expect when we travel, too – and we are thrilled to be answering that expectation with Xcelerate, which offers some of the fastest access at sea.”
Celebrity Cruises offers numerous Xcelerate packages, all of which can be pre-booked before departure or purchased onboard for the same rate. Xcelerate’s streaming features are well-suited to the unlimited package, which starts at $140 per person for five to nine days and $199 per person for 10+ days.
