Three more Princess ships to be given the Ocean Medallion treatment

Three more Princess Cruises ships have been earmarked to the Ocean Medallion Class fleet.

Both Crown Princess and Golden Princess will be Ocean Medallion ready in November 2018, with Ruby Princess following on in January 2019.

Seven Princess Cruise ships will feature Ocean Medallion technology by January 2019

Four other Princess ships already scheduled to feature the new technology are Regal Princess on 13 November, 2017, Royal Princess on 19 January, Caribbean Princess on 18 March and Island Princess on 16 May, 2018.

The Ocean Medallion is a tiny wearable device that acts as a “digital concierge” accessible via personal mobile devices, stateroom TVs and interactive displays throughout the ship.

Together, the Ocean Medallion and Ocean Compass will be used to:

  • Streamline the embarkation and disembarkation process, as the medallion gives quick and easy access to the ship
  • Unlock guests’ assigned stateroom door as they near it, so replacing the current key card
  • Enable guests to purchase merchandise, services, excursions, food and drinks
  • Provide enhanced dining experiences based on food and drink preferences
  • Enhance interaction with crew members and other guests
  • Help guests find their way to venues around the ship
  • Make reservations for the onboard spas and restaurants

  • Tony Roberts, vice president of Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “By the beginning of 2019, seven Princess ships will be in the Ocean Medallion Class fleet and we’re looking forward to others being equipped in the future.

    “Over the next few years, more and more of our guests will be able to experience the brand new technology not found anywhere else in the world.”
