CarnivalCarnival Corporation has signed a new agreement for the provision of internet and live TV services to its guests and crew.

The agreement covers several Carnival Corporation brands, including Princess Cruises, Cunard and P&O Cruises (UK), and will enable MTN to continue a partnership of more than 20 years.

Carnival has also extended its existing agreement for MTN broadcast television services, MTN Worldwide TV, which provides a wide range of television content including news and entertainment to 50 of its ships across the globe. In addition, Carnival Corporation brands in Alaskan waters will continue to leverage MTN’s Terrestrial Broadband Services while in port, with the opportunity to explore the possible expansion of this service.

“MTN and the Carnival family of brands have partnered for more than 20 years,” said Chris Leber, executive vice president, commercial business development, MTN.

“Our continued partnership providing MTN value-added services further illustrates how we have evolved to deliver communications-related services to the Carnival family of brands and to help improve the communications experience at sea, including content and Internet options for passengers and crew.”

“This continued partnership with MTN allows us to deliver the industry’s best set of technology and content to our guests and crew,” said Josh Leibowitz, EVP, Group Strategy and Corporate Operations at Carnival Corporation.
