Mano Cruises deploys MTN

MTN Communications has announced that Mano Cruises, an Israeli company which operates two cruise ships in the Mediterranean, has increased its connectivity services in conjunction with deploying MTN’s internet and crew calling solutions.

The phone service is provided through MTN’s OceanPhone prepaid platform, while web access is granted through MTN’s iCafe service on board the ship.

MTN shared neither the data allotment nor the expected speeds of the Ku-band VSAT service it is providing Mano with.

It said that its solution allows guests on board the cruise ships to surf the internet in Hebrew or in ten other languages.

“Mano wants to offer a quality communication experience to guests as they explore Europe,” said Brent Horwitz, senior vice president, MTN cruise and ferry services.

“We are confident our strategic partnership will help improve customer loyalty and increase repeat cruises, as well as provide crew a reliable means to stay connected while away from home.”

Shalabi Gassan, information technology manager at Mano Cruises, also added that “MTN products and services add great value to the Mano Cruise offering for both passengers and crew.”
