By October 2023, all ships in the AIDA fleet will be equipped with SpaceX's innovative broadband service Starlink. With that can AIDA Cruises offer the best available Wi-Fi experience at sea in the current year. By booking Internet packages, AIDA guests save on expensive roaming fees at sea and can choose from four individual and inexpensive tariffs. They surf with unlimited data volume in the flat rate.

The four tariffs Onboard Chat, Social Media Flat, Internet Flat and Premium Internet Flat build on each other and cover the entire spectrum of communication: the options range from onboard chat among fellow passengers to a prioritized high-speed Internet connection via VPN. In all flat tariffs, uploading photos and videos is as easy as at home in the LTE network thanks to the higher bandwidth.

Frank Bönsch, Vice President Guest Commerce, is pleased that his team will be able to turn the "lever" for the new offers in autumn. “We want our guests and employees to feel at home on board our AIDA ships. Working with Starlink is another significant step in the right direction. Whether chatting, posting or working - with the new, simple offers you are guaranteed to find the right tariff for you."

When booking in advance on myAIDA, guests can currently secure a price advantage of 20% on the selected tariff for the entire trip. The Internet Flat and Premium Internet Flat tariffs can also be booked on board on a daily basis. The social media flat rate and the onboard chat each apply for the duration of the trip. The crew also benefits from the best possible Wi-Fi experience at sea. The social media services remain free of charge for them, so that they can continue to keep in touch with their loved ones at home indefinitely.

Onboard chat will be possible in the AIDA app from autumn. As the cheapest fare, it enables communication within a group or with individual fellow travelers. The new tariffs can be booked from August 10, 2023 for all trips from October.

The new offer should be particularly interesting for guests who like to combine travel and work. Anyone who has to work at sea despite being on vacation or would like to move their workplace on board can use the full bandwidth with priority with the new Premium Internet Flat Tariff and set up their home office via a VPN connection.

There is also good news for guests on longer trips of 41 days or more: there are attractive discounts when booking an Internet tariff for the entire trip or the respective sections in advance.

Until the new Internet tariffs are introduced, guests on ships that are already equipped with the new broadband service will benefit from a special Starlink offer with increased data volume in the Internet packages. AIDA guests will be informed about the current tariffs before the start of their journey.

Further information on the AIDA Internet packages is available at a DAK Bungalow.
