Princess Cruises – Ocean Medallion Holidays
Princess continually pushes the boundaries with innovative features and the Ocean Medallion is one of the most exciting new features to date. You will be inspired to see and do more on your cruise than ever before, while experiencing a truly personalised and effortless cruise holiday.
Ocean Medallion debuts on 13th November 2017 on Regal Princess, 19 January 2018 on Royal Princess, 18 March 2018 on Caribbean Princess, 16 May 2018 on Island Princess and 25 October 2018 on Golden Princess. It will be optional, so guests can choose to opt in or out at any time. The Medallion is only available on Ocean Medallion holidays and is always complimentary. Accessories such as wristbands, necklaces and key chains are optional and you can purchase them before you set sail.
What is Ocean Medallion? The 1.8-ounce wearable disk enhances the experience of Princess’ ship guests by offering an “unprecedented level of customization” throughout the entire holiday process.
You will be given an Ocean Medallion to carry with you while on your cruise that will hold your unique digital identity. The medallion communicates with readers located throughout the ship and in selected ports.
This allows crew to learn more about you and your preferences, they will know your favourite food and beverage choices, your likes and dislikes, and make recommendations accordingly. For example, if you are a keen snorkeler they may suggest some great snorkelling excursions at your next port of call.
Ocean Medallion will also allow you to make payments, unlock your stateroom (no more need for key cards), and allow smoother embarkation among many other exciting features.
