Celebrity adds high-speed internet to fleet

Bandwidth to be boosted by around four times
Celebrity Cruises has added high-speed internet capability to its entire fleet. The Xcelerate system will see bandwidth boosted by around four times, enabling faster browsing and “more dependable video-streaming capabilities”.
It will be available on Celebrity Reflection and soon roll out to the remainder of the line’s large ships, although Celebrity Xpedition – the line’s Galapagos ship – is not scheduled to receive it.
Xcelerate will be available through a number of packages, all of which can be pre-booked before departure or purchased on board for the same rate.
The unlimited package starts at $140pp for five to nine days and costs $199pp for 10 or more days.
“Xcelerate is going to give our digitally connected guests a new opportunity to share their amazing travel experiences with the world in real time, anywhere in the world,” said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity Cruises’ president and chief executive.
“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.”
