Today, staying connected has become a way of life, and MTN has developed multiple platforms and services to make this available to both passengers and crew while creating additional onboard revenue opportunities for the cruise lines. Today, MTN’s value-added offerings can be found on more than 200 vessels around the world.
Voice and Data Services
MTN offers multiple options to call and stay connected at sea with such products as OceanPhone® calling, Shore-to-Ship phone service, long-distance billing, and credit card calling. Any of these choices offers competitive rates and convenient methods to stay in touch with loved ones back on land.
Dial a Ship
Loved ones shore-side can easily stay connected to passengers or crew by calling cruise ships at sea. Anytime. For more information, please visit the Dial a Ship website.
In addition, through a joint venture with AT&T, cellular@sea, a wireless voice and data service provided by WMS, allows travelers aboard cruise and ferry vessels to use virtually any type of mobile phone just as they would on land.
Internet café and WiFi services deliver access to passengers and crew on PCs, laptops, iPads, and mobile devices to connect and stay connected while at sea.

MTN Worldwide TV is delivered utilizing three overlapping satellite beams to deliver programming from E!
