Royal Caribbean International offers Voom, its exclusive, high-speed Internet service and the fastest Internet at sea, onboard its entire fleet of 25 ships, sailing to over 250 destinations worldwide.
Voom allows guests holidaying with Royal Caribbean to stay connected and to stream their favourite music, movies and TV shows while sailing to the most popular destinations around the world. Whether they are posting envy-inducing holiday photos on Instagram or Snapchat, or video-chatting with loved ones back home, holidaymakers can share their adventures in real-time with family and friends.
“Voom is revolutionising the onboard experience for our guests as well as for our crew and it is truly a game-changer for the industry,” said Michael Bayley, President and Chief Executive, Royal Caribbean International. “Everything our guests and crew can do online at home, they will now be able to do from onboard all of our ships around the world.”
Known for the most innovative ships at sea, the holiday company has made a significant investment to enhance guests’ Internet connectivity experience outfitting its newest smart ships with the latest and most advanced technology and continually upgrading its existing fleet. Through a combination of wi-fi service providers, Royal Caribbean is able to deliver more overall bandwidth to its entire fleet than any other cruise line. The enhancements will provide speeds at least twice as fast as before and have also enabled the holiday company to offer very competitive pricing – comparable to most land-based resorts.
Irish travellers sailing on all Royal Caribbean ships can enjoy the fastest Internet at sea at a flat price, with guests choosing from two packages:
- Surf, which provides guests the opportunity to surf the web, stay in touch via email, and share their holiday photos on social media. Surf packages start from $12.99 (approximately £8.84) per device, per day with additional devices added at a discounted cost. Family packages – five devices or more – start from as low as $8.99 (approximately £6.11) per device, per day.

This package is available for $17.99 (approximately £12.24) per device, per day. Additional devices can be connected at a discount and family packages – five devices or more – start as low as $11.99 (approximately £8.16) per device, per day.
