'The small size of our yachts provides a distinct advantage in that we can deliver a larger amount of Internet per-person on board,' Andreas Brynestad said
SeaDream Yacht Club implemented Starlink's high-speed Internet connectivity on its twin yachts.

Starlink is a low-Earth orbit satellite constellation operated by Elon Musk’s SpaceX. It supports high-bandwidth activities such as video streaming, online gaming, video calls and more.

Part of $10m in ship renovations

The Starlink service is part of SeaDream’s $10m renovation investment in SeaDream I and SeaDream II. 

'I am proud to announce that SeaDream is at the forefront of technology, becoming the first boutique travel line to implement Starlink onboard. 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,' SeaDream EVP Andreas Brynestad said.

Fastest Internet at sea?

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.'

Royal Caribbean Group recently announced it would be implementing Starlink across Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Silversea Cruises.
