Global Eagle, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Enter Strategic Partnership
Global Eagle Entertainment has signed a multi-year strategic partnership agreement with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH) to enhance internet and entertainment services across its Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) brand’s fleet of 14 ships. Under the agreement, Global Eagle is implementing tiered plans for Wi-Fi, texting and video, giving passengers more choices.
In the near future, NCL guests should be able to use their own devices to access an integrated portal that includes TV programming, on-demand movies, games, and special event telecasts. Global Eagle also expects to be able to monitor usage and dynamically adjust bandwidth for each ship based on real-time demand.
“In addition, Global Eagle’s portal will enable us to manage our onboard revenue-producing services, entertainment and information more efficiently,” said Ross Henderson, NCL’s vice president of onboard revenue.
