Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises are getting a big upgrade to their high-speed Wi-Fi networks through a partnership between parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) and EMC. Norwegian Cruise Line, NCLH’s upscale brand, will receive a full upgrade as well.
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, including new state of the art satellite dishes, and EMC’s patented SpeedNet program. The SpeedNet program delivers popular websites at speeds that mimic high-speed fiber optic networks, similar to those available in homes and offices. The Wi-Fi experience is further enhanced by the recent deployment of high speed shoreside connectivity in key ports of call.
Guests on all Norwegian, Oceania and Regent ships can expect to experience the new upgrades by July 2016.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises guests enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as Oceania Cruise guests sailing under the current OLife Choice promotion. For those purchasing a plan, per minute packages as well as unlimited access packages are available for pre-book or onboard.
