By | 2020 Newsletter week 39 | No Comments

Baleària’s new fast ferry ELEANOR ROOSEVELT was launched on Friday 18 September at the Armon shipyard in Gijón.

This innovative ship is scheduled to begin operating in the first quarter of 2021.

Lots of focus goes to the use of LNG as fuel.

However, equally important is what Baleària has achieved in the digitization of services, with the “Smart ship” concept.

  • Passengers will be able to access by means of a QR code that they will receive via WhatsApp, with the indication of the assigned seat number
  • Internet service and WhatsApp coverage for text messages during crossing
  • Free digital entertainment platform for mobile devices
  • See the pets through webcams installed in the cages.
