Princess has just announced Regal Princess as the second ship fully-activated with the Princess Medallion, the line’s newest technology.
All guests onboard will have full access from February 17th 2019 while the ship sails its current Caribbean season.
The Medallion is as small as a 10p piece, is fully-automated and has no visible technology such as an on-off switch or charging function.
Tony Roberts, vice president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “We’ve received excellent feedback from guests and crew members who have experienced the Medallion on Caribbean Princess as we continue on our path to fleet-wide activation.
The more personalised service we are now able to provide is benefiting guests from the moment they step foot onboard. The Medallion enhances so much of what we offer, from speedy embarkation, to staying in touch with friends and family, to finding your way across the ship, to ordering drinks.”
Guests can expect:
-A streamlined ship embarkation and disembarkation process for quicker and easier entry and exit
-Stateroom access (so no need for keycard)
-Enhanced interaction with crew members and guests e.g. staff can access individual food and beverage preferences to offer a more personalised service
-OceanCompass with interactive directions throughout the ship, making it easier to locate friends and family
-Access to a real-time look at guests’ itinerary via portals throughout the ship, along with events and activities available
-Interactive games that can be played on portals, including trivia challenges and a ship-wide digital scavenger hunt
-Casino games including poker, bingo and roulette- all of which are available via guests’ smart devices and select portals
Caribbean Princess was the first ship in the fleet to have full Medallion access, however the technology was first unveiled by Carnival Corporation CEO Arnold Donald in 2017.
The line has plans to roll out the Medallion as part of a phased fleet-wide activation plan with further announcements to be made in due course.
Princess just announced that Regal Princess will sail the line’s largest season in Australia in 2020 with 56-day cruise from Southampton to Sydney in the October.
The ‘Four Continents Grand Adventure’ will span Europe, the Middle East and Asia before arriving in Australasia, taking in ports of Rome, Dubai, the Suez Canal, Sri Lanka and Singapore.
Guests who prefer a shorter cruise are offered alternative routes.
