MTN and Prestige Cruise Holdings Extend 12-Year Partnership

Service Excellence Providing a Luxury Communications and Content Experience Cited as Reason for Renewal

MIRAMAR, Fla., Aug. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MTN Communications (MTN) announces Prestige Cruise Holdings (Prestige) has extended the companies' 12-year relationship and will be introducing new communications services to its three-ship Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleet and five-ship Oceania Cruises operation. In addition, the contract extends to the much-anticipated Seven Seas Explorer. Currently under construction and joining the Regent Seven Seas fleet in summer 2016, it is designed to be the most luxurious ship ever built. 

MTN delivers a complete communications solution including MTN Worldwide TV (MTN TV), Internet and voice services for passengers and crew, including the maritime-specific voice app for calling and messaging onboard and ship-to-shore. Prestige pioneered the launch of this app – MTN OceanPhone Mobile – onboard several of its vessels. OceanPhone Mobile leverages vessel Wi-Fi infrastructure and the reliable MTN network so crew can call and message with family and friends using their own smartphones and tablets. 

"The investment made to enhance shipboard connectivity through our partnership with MTN helped us expand the all-inclusive luxury experience found on Regent Seven Seas Cruises by becoming the only cruise line to offer complimentary unlimited Internet service," said Kunal S. Kamlani, president of Prestige Cruise Holdings. "We fully recognize the importance that our guests place on staying connected with friends and family as they explore the world."  

"Prestige has been a true partner in incorporating and supporting some of the latest technologies available in the industry – including the cruise industry's first-to-market mobile app," said Brent Horwitz, senior vice president and general manager, cruise services, MTN. "We share a parallel interest in delivering an experience unmatched in the industry when it comes to communications and content. We are proud of our track record with Prestige."

MTN operates a worldwide connectivity footprint and content suite through an unmatched hybrid satellite and terrestrial broadband network across the globe. The pioneer in broadband maritime communications, MTN prides itself in partnering with cruise market leaders.
