MIRAMAR, Fla., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MTN Communications (MTN) announces that Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL; NYSE: CUK) has signed a new agreement for the provision of Internet 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 in delivering crew welfare and passenger solutions to Carnival.

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.
