ST. JOHN, Jersey, Channel Islands & MIAMI -- January 14, 2013

O3b Networks has signed a second historic, multi-year deal with Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd. to provide high-speed satellite-delivered broadband
service aboard one of the world’s largest and most revolutionary cruise ships,
Allure of the Seas. More than 8,000 guests, staff and crew members traveling
the Caribbean will connect at fiber-like speeds at sea.

Royal Caribbean was the first to enlist O3b’s new maritime offering
O3bMaritime aboard, Allure of the Seas’ sister ship, Oasis of the Seas when
they signed a contract last summer. Now guests and crew aboard Allure of the
Seas will be able to enjoy lightning fast download speeds and performance that
is anticipated to also be four times more responsive than existing and planned
GEO satellite systems. O3bMaritime will be the only satellite system capable
of enabling cruise line guests and crew broadband services on par with onshore
telecommunication standards.

“Cruise ship guests expect the same quality voice and Internet services they
experience on land. We are proud to be the first cruise line to offer guests
and crew aboard our innovative Oasis class of ships connectivity services that
are in a league of their own” said Bill Martin, Chief Information Officer for
Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.. “This latest agreement underlines our confidence
in O3b Networks and the game-changing level of connectivity it is set to
provide aboard our ships.”

"Through these agreements, O3b Networks and Royal Caribbean will soon be
delivering more bandwidth than is currently availableon all cruise ships
combined in the Caribbean, making O3b the outright market leader", said Steve
Collar, CEO, O3b Networks. “The partnership between O3b Networks and Royal
Caribbean Cruises Ltd. continues to expand, and the real winners are the
guests and crew aboard the most innovative ships at sea. The alliance is based
on a shared mission built on the belief that the Internet should always be
within reach – on land and at sea.”
