Wireless Maritime Services (WMS) and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings have signed a long-term agreement extending and expanding on board cellular services to the group’s entire fleet of 27 ships and future newbuildings.
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with WMS by including the entire Norwegian Cruise Line fleet in this Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings global agreement.” said Ross Henderson, NCL’s senior vice president of on board revenue. “WMS has proven to be a world-class provider of cellular services on board our cruise ships and is the right choice for supplying cellular voice and data to our guests.”
With the increasing demand for guests and crew to stay connected while cruising, WMS’ cellular technology and design provides better cellular coverage, reliable connectivity and faster data speeds, the company claimed.
“We appreciate and are humbled by the confidence Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has shown in WMS’s capabilities,” said Pramod Arora, WMS president & CEO. “The responsibility to provide mobile connectivity to all three Norwegian brands is something we do not take lightly, and WMS is committed to make sure that our service and products continue to be best-in-class in the cruise industry.”
