New MTN Solutions Attract Additional Cruise Customers and Renewals

MTN Communications (MTN) attributes recent new cruise customer wins and renewals to its strategic roll-out of transformative communications and content services on board ships.

New customers American Cruise Lines and Club Med Cruises have signed agreements with MTN for communications services. Four additional customers have renewed with MTN – Crystal Cruises, Moana Cruises, Paul Gauguin Cruises and Phoenix Reisen.

“Our innovation is possible for specific reasons,” said Brent Horwitz, senior vice president and general manager, cruise and ferry services, MTN. “We are technology-agnostic when designing vessel communications systems. Our focus is on customized integration based on individual needs. Our solutions are successful because they deliver significant value by maximizing revenues, minimizing costs, improving operations and ensuring an exceptional experience. Finally, many on our team are former crew or vessel operators with an unprecedented understanding of customer demands. This helps us exceed expectations by serving our customers at multiple levels.”

Today, the global, service-centric MTN team delivers high-speed Internet, voice and media solutions to cruise ships around the world. MTN recently unveiled new transformations in how people stay connected, informed and entertained at sea.

The company’s hybrid satellite and terrestrial broadband network changed the game in terms of bandwidth capacity on ships. It is also leading the shift in how passengers and crew consume data on board. With network, access to content via the Internet, and newly-launched MTN-TV high-definition (MTN-TV HD) service, MTN continues to lead the way in “blurring the lines” between land and sea communications.
