Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) has announced plans to upgrade the high-speed Wi-Fi across all three of its brands - Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises - through a long-term strategic agreement with EMC.
To support the new Wi-Fi network, multi-million dollar bandwidth and performance-boosting technology upgrades will be installed fleet-wide before the end of June, including new state of the art satellite dishes, and EMC’s patented SpeedNet program. The SpeedNet program delivers popular websites at speeds that mimic high-speed fiber optic networks, similar to those available in homes and offices. The Wi-Fi experience is further enhanced by the recent deployment of high speed shoreside connectivity in key ports of call.
Guests on all Norwegian, Oceania and Regent ships can expect to experience the new upgrades by July 2016.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises guests enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi. Oceania Cruise guests sailing under the current OLife Choice promotion and Norwegian Cruise Line guests who selected free Wi-Fi as part of the company’s Free at Sea promotion will also enjoy the new Internet experience on their cruise. For those purchasing a plan, per minute packages as well as unlimited access packages are available for pre-book or onboard.
