Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, which operates short cruises between the Port of Palm Beach in Florida and the Bahamas, has rolled out free high-speed Internet for its crew members fleetwide.
Internet also remains available for travelers throughout the ship, as well as in the dedicated Internet café. Two Wi-Fi packages are available for customers:
- Option 1 - $15 per device, per day
- Option 2 - $25 per device for the full two-night cruise
Sailing between the Port of Palm Beach and Grand Bahama Island, the itinerary provides Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line with the opportunity to augment conventional, satellite-based connections with high-speed terrestrial circuits, providing a superior online experience for both guests and crew, the cruise line said.
Connectivity up to 1GBit per second is available while the ships are in port or in the vicinity of ports of call; however, the cruise line is collaborating with a provider of an innovative new service that will soon expand this level of performance while ships are out at sea. Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has also adapted other technological initiatives to further enhance the guest experience, which includes high-speed Internet and WiFi in the terminals and check-in for its guests with hand held devices to reduce waiting times.
