Princess readies full activation of second MedallionClass ship

Next ship up for full MedallionCruising activation is Regal Princess
Regal Princess is set to become the second Princess Cruises ship—after Caribbean Princess—to offer the fully activated MedallionClass experiences, starting Feb. 17.

The OceanMedallion is a wearable device designed to enhance experiences, help the crew provide more personalized service and enable interactive entertainment, including gaming.

Speedy embarkation

MedallionClass cruising facilitates fast embarkation for passengers who arrive at the terminal 'OceanReady,' having uploaded their passport to their profile before leaving home.

Aboard ship, using their smart devices, travelers have the ability to order drinks via 'OceanNow' and have them delivered directly throughout the ship including in their stateroom.

Other features include keyless stateroom entry, where each person is securely validated and the door automatically unlocks with personalized greetings displayed on the door portal. And 'OceanCompass' enables point-to-point wayfinding throughout the ship, while 'MedallionPay' provides easy payment for goods and services.

Fast, reliable Wi-Fi ship-wide

Fast, reliable, affordable and unlimited Wi-Fi is available via MedallionNet, enabling passengers to stay connected from anywhere on the ship including staterooms, which are each equipped with a Wi-Fi access point. MedallionNet makes it possible to easily share vacation experiences with friends and family back home, stream television shows, movies and sports events, and make voice and video calls.

'Wowed' by OceanMedallion

'Our guests have been absolutely wowed by OceanMedallion vacations on Caribbean Princess, and we are proud to roll out the full Princess MedallionClass experience on Regal Princess starting early next year,' Princess president Jan Swartz said. 'With two Princess MedallionClass ships sailing in the Caribbean, we continue on our path to fleetwide activation, providing even more guests an enhanced level of personalized service.'
