Celebrity Cruises Internet service is taking a step up in speed with the introduction of the new Xcelerate service.

The company promises "faster web browsing, accelerated page loads, and more dependable video streaming capabilities" for cruise passengers.

Passengers can buy Xcelerate before boarding or on board for the same price. The price for the unlimited package starts at $140 per person for five to nine days and $199 per person for 10 or more days.

The service takes part in Celebrity's "Big Better Best" program that offers perks such as free unlimited Internet access when they book an oceanview or higher stateroom (subject to change).

The faster wi fi service already is available on Celebrity Reflection and will be appearing on the line's remaining ships except for Celebrity Xpedition, which sails throughout the year in the Galápagos Islands.

"Xcelerate is going to give our digitally connected guests a new opportunity to share their amazing travel experiences with the world in real time, whether docked in Europe's sought-after ports-of-call or gliding through the ocean on all of our large ships, anywhere in the world," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Celebrity Cruises CEO and President.

"We know that this is what our guests expect – it's what we expect when we travel, too – and we are thrilled to be answering that expectation with Xcelerate, which offers some of the fastest access at sea."
