Maritime Communications Partner (MCP), a Telenor subsidiary which provides phone coverage to cruise and ferry passengers, has announced that it has been chosen by Princess Cruises to equip one of its ships with on-board 3G wireless communication services.

Built in 1995, the Sun Princess can carry 2,022 passengers and 900 crew members. It has just finished its first Japan-based cruise programme and will now continue on to other Asian and Australia itineraries for the rest of 2013.

“The most important thing for us is to meet the needs of our customer’s passengers and ensure that their cruise experience is fulfilling and satisfying at all levels – especially when it comes to keeping in touch with friends and family onshore and accessing the mobile internet in their usual way,” said Fred Sorensen, managing director of MCP.

Eivind Madsen, CEO of MCP, also commented that “for MCP it is important to deliver solutions that take advantage of the latest, smartest technologies in order to move forward into the future and Princess Cruises shares the same mindset.”

“We are very excited to have been chosen by Princess Cruises to take this next step in the mobile revolution at sea – together.”
