Oceania rolls out much improved on-board TV service

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. & SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 19,
2008--Wave Entertainment Network(TM), a wholly owned subsidiary of
SeaMobile(R) Enterprises, announced today an agreement with Oceania
Cruises(R), the world's only upper-premium cruise line, to provide
Oceania Cruises' guests with the first state-of-the-art satellite
television service delivered at sea. The first ship to deploy the Wave
television platform will be Oceania Cruises' Insignia. The line's
Nautica and Regatta are scheduled to receive the service later this
year.

   Wave Entertainment Network delivers an at-sea television platform
that rivals what viewers currently experience at home and is a
significant change in the world of maritime entertainment. The Wave
programming platform is the first multi-channel, interactive
television system ever to be distributed to passenger cruise ships in
all ocean regions around the world. Wave offers abundant content--both
linear and "on-demand"-with superior digital picture quality via its
satellite delivered IPTV system.

   The television and audio services provided to Oceania Cruises will
include linear cable, satellite and broadcast networks, audio content,
video-on-demand, adult programming, special events, and other video
content typically offered via multi-channel platforms.

   "We are thrilled to provide the Wave programming platform to
Oceania Cruises," said Larry Lemoine, Wave Entertainment's President.
"This world class entertainment solution adds to the suite of luxury
services already provided on Oceania Cruises' ships. As with other
SeaMobile services, our television line-up allows guests on cruise
ships to experience all of the entertainment choices that they could
expect on land."

   The Wave Entertainment platform uses a combination of satellite
technology - delivered by SeaMobile's industry leading Maritime
Telecommunications Network (MTN) - and special caching technology that
allows viewers to experience live events and network programming in
time slots they are accustomed to seeing. The unique store-and-forward
feature of the service ensures that travelers at sea won't miss their
favorite programs while enjoying other activities during their cruise.

   "For over a year now we have utilized SeaMobile's premier
communications solutions for our guests," said Oceania Cruises'
President Bob Binder. "As an innovator and leader in the cruise line
industry, we have again placed our trust in SeaMobile to deliver a
television product that not only enhances our guests' experience, but
makes them feel right at home."

   Wave Entertainment Network represents an important component of
parent company SeaMobile Enterprises' vision to provide a host of
dynamic communications, information, and entertainment services
available in remote locations around the world. SeaMobile is already
the market leader in providing broadband services at sea
