This Princess Ship Has Been Chosen To Activate This…

Princess Cruises has just confirmed that Crown Princess has become it’s fourth MedallionClass ship.

Crown Princess becomes the first UK-based ship to feature the revolutionary OceanMedallion technology which will offer a whole new level of service, creating a simpler and more personalised holiday experience.


-Princess MedallionClass experience, featuring the complimentary OceanMedallion wearable device

-Expedited arrival (guests who arrive at the terminal with travel documents -i.e. passports- uploaded to their profile enjoy a streamlined and expedited check-in process that gets their holiday started even sooner)

-Touchless stateroom entry so there is no need to touch, swipe or insert cards or devices into the door handle to unlock the stateroom. Instead as a guest approaches their stateroom, the door automatically unlocks

-On-demand services. Guests will have the ability to order drinks, food and retail items such as suntan lotion from smart devices, and have them delivered directly anywhere onboard

-Family and friends locator

-OceanCompass guides guests throughout their journey, providing directional information so they can seamlessly navigate to their next point of interest

-Interactive voyage timeline. JourneyView lets guests scroll through all of the events available on board during their voyage and bookmark activities they’re interested in to their own personalized itinerary

Voyage itineraries are available as many as 60 days in advance, allowing guests to start planning before they leave home.

The ship will be based in Southampton this summer as it sails the British Isles on a series of 12-night voyages.

In addition, Crown Princess now benefits from MedallionNet, which allows guests to stay connected anywhere onboard including staterooms.

MedallionNet allows guests to share holiday experiences with friends and family back home; stream TV shows, movies and sports events; and make voice and video calls.

The following ships are already Medallion Class:

-Caribbean Princess

-Regal Princess

-Royal Princess

The following ships will become MedallionClass vessels up to the end of 2020:

-Sky Princess on its launch in October 2019

-Ruby Princess on January 27th 2020

-Grand Princess on March 29th 2020

-Enchanted Princess on June 15th 2020

-Emerald Princess on August 16th 2020

-Coral Princess on October 16th 2020

-Island Princess on December 20th 2020

After her UK season, Crown Princess will make her way to Fort Lauderdale in September for roundtrip Caribbean sailings before returning to the UK from May-November 2020.

This is when she will sail from Southampton on a series of voyages to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands and northern Europe.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises vice president UK & Europe, said: “We are so excited to see an OceanMedallion-activated ship in the UK as guests can now see first-hand the huge number of benefits it brings with it. OceanMedallion is intended to make every guest feel like a VIP and helps them relax and enjoy their cruise from the moment they are ready to step onboard.

From quicker access on and off the ship, to the unprecedented on demand service, to being able to stay in touch with friends and family wherever they are on the ship, all mean guests on Crown Princess can now make the most of every aspect of their holiday with us.” 

The ship will be based in Southampton this summer as it sails the British Isles on a series of 12-night voyages.
