Wi-Fi Access On Board Fred. Olsen Cruise Ships

Press release   •   Nov 09, 2010 15:55 GMT

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is pleased to announce that guests can now benefit from a Wi-Fi service on board its ships. Currently, the service is live and fully operational on three ships in the fleet - Black Watch, Braemar and Balmoral. It will be available on Boudicca from January 2011.

There are Wi-Fi ‘hot spots’ on each ship. They are located as follows:-

•  Black Watch     – Library
•  Braemar    – Library and Braemar Lounge
•  Balmoral     – Library, Card Room and Braemar Lounge

Guests can purchase tokens and bundle packages for Wi-Fi internet minutes from Reception, at competitive rates, and these charges will be applied to their onboard accounts. Each token contains a PIN code, and the user will be prompted for this when their laptop or mobile device connects to the wireless network.

Guests wanting Internet access, without using the Wi-Fi service, will still be able to make use of the Internet Centres, on all four ships, to connect whilst on board. 

The new service means that guests can connect using their own laptops or mobile devices, if they wish to, and will have greater choice and more flexibility for staying connected while on board.

Fred. Olsen Cruise Line operates in the UK with four intimately sized ships for a more personal cruising experience.
