In an era of constant connectedness on personal mobile devices, more and more travelers expect to have instant access to the latest news and events, even while away at sea. With PressReader, cruise operators can now offer a digital newspaper service that meets the news consumption habits of today’s cruise passenger that is customizable and scalable.

With a library of over 5,000 top-tier newspapers and magazines including the Washington Post, Business Traveler, Elle France, and ForbesDaily, PressReader allows individual ships to customize a library of newspapers and magazines that caters the passengers on board. PressReader’s innovative offline solution, now offers cruise line passengers the luxury of same-day full-content digital editions of their favorite publication from around the world – even before they hit the newsstands.

PressReader can easily be implemented on-board with:

  • PressReader Offline: Each ship can customize a library of newspapers and magazine based on their particular regional location and passenger demographics. Ships download their selected titles daily via satellite and offer their passengers a local Wi-Fi connection to download the titles on their personal mobile device. With this solution, costs remain low for ships while still being able to provide the quality service and amenity to passengers. Once a title is downloaded it can be viewed by PressReader users anytime, anywhere throughout the journey.
  • PressReader Plus: To complement the digital access, PressReader Plus provides cruise lines with an option to add a print-on-demand service for passengers that enjoy their favorite publication in print. Ships can offer passengers wide selection of newspapers and magazines from the PressReader network and print replica editions on-board.
