Royal Caribbean to Install NavBox Across Entire Fleet

|

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCC) has signed a deal with NAVTOR to install the NavBox navigation solution across its entire corporate fleet of 49 vessels, in a deal which spans RCC's six different operating companies.

E-navigation specialist NAVTOR launched NavBox in 2013. The solution, which complements NAVTOR's range of electronic navigational chart (ENC) based services, automatically downloads, distributes and updates all vessel navigational charts and publications, cutting administration time, while ensuring the very latest, compliant charts are always at hand.

The full extent of the agreement covers the delivery of all official digital charts and publications to RCC vessels across the brands Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, TUI Cruises, Pullmantur, Azamara Club Cruises and Skysea. This includes the soon to launch Symphony of the Seas, which will hold the title of the world's largest cruise ship when it embarks on its maiden voyage on April 21, 2018.

NAVTOR said NavBox is already proving popular with ship owners, with the RCC contract following on from recent fleet agreements with both DOF, EXMAR and Stolt Tankers.
