New MTN contracts in the luxury segment of the cruise market

by Staff Reporter | January 8th, 2013

MTN Satellite Communications (MTN) has announced new contracts with luxury cruise operators around the world.

For more than 30 years, the company has reportedly provided maritime customers with very small aperture terminal (VSAT) satellite network solutions as well as voice, data, internet, news, entertainment, and financial services. These solutions enable, the company claims, MTN’s customers to enhance their overall business operations, as well as ensure passenger satisfaction and crew welfare initiatives.

Recent contract wins and activities in the cruise market include the following brands that look to MTN for VSAT services, television and special events, and internet and calling solutions for passengers and crew:

  • Windstar Cruises, a sailing luxury small ship cruise line based in Seattle, Wash.
  • Paul Gauguin Cruises, owned by Pacific Beachcomber S.C., French Polynesia’s leading luxury hotel and cruise operator
  • The World, the only residential ship at sea that continuously navigates the globe
  •  Freewinds, a 440-foot chartered ship based in the Caribbean, with the home port of Curacao

“Our team at MTN recognises that no two customers are alike and it is our job to develop communication solutions that not only meet, but exceed their unique communications requirements,” said Brent Horwitz, Senior Vice President and General Manager for MTN cruise and ferry services. “The fact that these prestigious cruise lines chose to use MTN for delivery to customers who demand only the best is a testament to our ability to lead market innovation when it comes to high-quality, reliable maritime connectivity solutions.”
