MIAMI — Being ‘plugged in’ at all times is a must for a growing number of travellers, which is why Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings will be quadrupling the current bandwidth across its Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises fleets in the coming months.
This initiative is part of a long-term agreement with EMC to significantly enhance the Internet experience onboard all 23 ships in the company’s fleet. 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. As such, popular websites will be delivered at speeds that mimic high-speed fiber optic networks similar to those available in homes and offices, while high-speed shoreside connectivity will also be available in key ports of call.
Guests on all Norwegian, Oceania and Regent ships can expect to experience the new lightning-fast Wi-Fi by July 2016.
Regent guests enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi as part of the line’s most inclusive luxury cruise experience. Oceania 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 service on their cruise. Those purchasing a plan, per-minute packages as well as unlimited access packages are available for pre-book or onboard.
