Genting Corporate Services (HK) Limited has selected Harris CapRock Communications to transform communication services onboard the Star Cruises’ fleet of six ships. Star Cruises is one of the largest cruise lines in the world and is the leading cruise line in the Asia Pacific region.
Harris CapRock will use its advanced technologies and equipment to boost bandwidth nearly 300% onboard Star Cruises’ Superstar Virgo, Superstar Gemini, Superstar Libra, Superstar Aquarius, Star Pisces and Taipan ships.
