MIRAMAR, Fla., Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MTN Communications (MTN) announces it will continue to be the communications provider of choice for Mano Cruises (Mano), the leading cruise company in Israel.  Mano has increased its connectivity services in conjunction with deploying MTN's Internet and crew calling solutions.  This effort will further increase the scope of communications for guests and crew sailing throughout Europe.   

The MTN solution allows Mano to fully localize its Internet experience in Hebrew, enabling guests onboard to surf the Internet in their native language. Ten other languages are also available through a simple language selection option to meet the needs of Mano's diverse passenger base.

"Beyond the appeal of its extraordinary itineraries and services, Mano wants to offer a quality communication experience to guests as they explore Europe," said Brent Horwitz, senior vice president, MTN cruise and ferry services. "In working with Mano, we are confident our strategic partnership will help improve customer loyalty and increase repeat cruises, as well as provide crew a reliable means to stay connected while away from home."
