EMC has entered a long-term strategic agreement with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings to deliver a faster Internet experience and premium entertainment over satellite to meet the rising expectations of cruise passengers, with demands for home-like performance and content. EMC’s recent innovations put satellite connectivity on par with meeting these skyrocketing needs, enabling Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings brands to provide an exceptional quality of experience for their guests.
 
Following the 2015 MTN acquisition, EMC has fully integrated its innovation of highly valued patents, maritime experience and unparalleled network coverage to provide the highest quality of experience and satisfaction to passengers.
 
“With the addition of new hardware, combined with the significant increase in satellite bandwidth, shoreside connectivity and EMC’s SpeedNet, we have moved beyond the decades-old problem of slow data speeds from satellite, to deliver a much more efficient and faster Internet experience for our guests,” said Ross Henderson, vice president, onboard revenue, at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings. “Our guests can consume content, post to social media and stay in touch with family and friends on the ships’ network, just as they are used to on land,” Henderson continued.
 
All brands in Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ portfolio will have immediate access to EMC’s innovation, which brings the highest standards of Web, entertainment and multimedia experiences.
 
“This is a testament to our giant leaps forward in the cruise sector, thanks to our patented, purpose-built and differentiated products, and our unmatched worldwide support,” said Brent Horwitz, president of cruise and ferry services, EMC.
