Offline experience

Offline experience

Daily news and magazines. No extra bandwidth.

We know offering WiFi at sea isn't simple or cheap. With PressReader’s offline solution, you can download and save publications directly to each ship’s server. Then, passengers can easily grab those publications to enjoy on their own personal devices.

You can schedule daily downloads during low bandwidth hours so passengers can enjoy the morning paper before it even hits the newsstand. You can also add and remove publications manually, and even upload your own content.

More mobile

An interactive reading experience.

Cruise lines are working hard to improve guest-facing technology. With PressReader, passengers can enjoy a beautifully designed interface with an easy, mobile-first, reading experience that’s perfect for every type of reader.

Major brands, like Viking Cruise Lines, have invested in tech and developed their own onboard app. Their passengers' mobile devices have become their hub for entertainment and other service offerings, like newspapers and magazines. Viking was one of the first major cruise lines to add PressReader to their own app experience.

More efficient

Manage bandwidth. Enhance operations.

It can be tough to balance satisfying guest expectations and maintaining a healthy ROI on new technology investments. PressReader helps cruise lines run more efficiently by simplifying the delivery of newspapers and magazines at sea -- all without internet.
