Aurora Expeditions gets connected with Starlink
Aurora Expeditions, Australia’s award-winning expedition travel company, has announced that its passengers will now enjoy enhanced onboard connectivity on its voyages, following the rollout of SpaceX’s Starlink aboard its purpose-built ships, the Greg Mortimer and Sylvia Earle.
The service has been implemented and is now available free of charge in all cabins and public spaces aboard the two vessels, allowing passengers to connect with friends and family at home, and catch up with the news or their work even in the most remote environments.
“Reliable and high-speed internet connectivity in the cruise industry has traditionally been a challenge, particularly for expedition operators in places like Antarctica and the Arctic,” said Michael Heath, Chief Executive Officer at Aurora Expeditions.
“While our ships are designed to be a comfortable base camp for adventure and we encourage our passengers to get out and explore the natural environment as much as possible, we understand that staying connected is important to them. We’re thrilled to continue to offer cutting-edge technological innovations to meet the needs of our expeditions, and we have already received incredibly positive feedback regarding the onboard experience.”
Aurora Expeditions offers life-changing voyages to some of the wildest and most remote destinations on the planet. For passengers looking to book their next adventure before Oct. 31, the expedition company has some incredible offers to choose from across dozens of voyages, including air credits and no solo supplements.
