Cruise Line's guests will be well-connected following the launch of cheaper and
faster internet and social media packages on the cruise line's Australia-based
ships this month.
In a move
which sets a new course for local cruisers, Carnival's enhanced internet access
offers significantly increased bandwidth and speed, while its new social media
package provides unlimited access to popular sites like Twitter, Facebook,
Instagram and Snapchat from just $15 a day.
Additional discounted plans are also available for the entire cruise
Cruise Line Vice President Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke said the cruise line
wanted to make it easier for its guests to share their holiday with friends,
given the role social media now plays in people's lives, particularly when
flexible and affordable internet is really important for many of our guests. We
know that they want to keep in touch with their friends and families and they
also want to keep them posted on how much fun they're having at sea," Ms
in mind we've tailored our packages to focus on the social media sites and apps
that our guests use most and ramped up our bandwidth to give our guests
unprecedented internet access at sea, which means they can now upload as many selfies
as they like and easily check in to all the fantastic ports they visit during
their cruise," she said.
The new offerings
include a value plan with unlimited access to the web for checking email,
sports scores, weather updates and a wide range of extra apps, and a premium
package that provides the fastest available connection speed and also supports
video calls on Skype.
internet packages follow the launch of Carnival's Selfies at Sea app last year.
Available for download free of charge at the Apple and Android stores, the
Selfies at Sea app collates a series of onboard photos into a mini-movie which
can be shared on social media channels.
