Wireless Maritime Services (WMS) and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines (Fred. Olsen) have renewed their agreement for cellular services onboard the cruise line’s fleet of ships. 

“We have worked with WMS for six years, and value its support and service in providing cellular services aboard our fleet,” said Damon Impett, director of IT at Fred. Olsen. “Having good connectivity aboard our ships is not only vital for our own business operations, but it also provides an invaluable resource to our guests and crew during their time at sea. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with WMS as we resume operations across the rest of our fleet.”   

Cellular connectivity will be provided for all Fred. Olsen ships, including the newly acquired Borealis and Bolette. Borealis began sailing from Liverpool, UK, in July, while Bolette departed from Dover in August.  Balmoral is scheduled to return to service in the fourth quarter of 2021, before Braemar becomes the final ship to return to operations in Spring 2022.  

“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines,” said Michael Abdul, vice president of sales at WMS. “Fred. Olsen has been a wonderful partner to work with and we look forward to providing excellent onboard connectivity for its guests and crew in the coming years.”
