Mobile operator Telenor Maritime and telecommunications company AT&T have signed a new agreement to provide 5G roaming connectivity services to cruise and ferry passengers worldwide. 

AT&T’s Cruise International Day Pass enables customers to use the same phone plan as they do at home while on selected ships. Passengers do not need to pre-pay for the pass; instead, they only pay if they use it to receive calls, send texts or use data. It costs $15 per 24-hour period. 

As Telenor Maritime’s mobile network spans over 280 ships globally, the new Cruise Day Pass will enable millions of passengers to stay connected with loved ones at home. 

“We are excited to introduce this revolutionary roaming product, in partnership with AT&T,” said Håkon Berdal, commercial roaming manager at Telenor Maritime. “This initiative underscores our unwavering commitment to enhancing the passenger experience by providing seamless connectivity solutions that transcend the boundaries of traditional maritime communication.”
