Princess Cruises to put Medallion tech on three more ships

Three more Princess Cruises’ ships, Royal Princess, Crown Princess and the upcoming Sky Princess, are to feature the line’s wearable Princess Medallion technology fully-enabled onboard.

The Medallion will be available on the 3,560-passenger Royal Princess in April for its maiden Alaska season, followed by the 3,080-guest Crown Princess in July as the vessel sails the British Isles from Southampton.


The 3,660-guest Sky Princess, which joins the Princess fleet in October, will feature the gadget when it embarks on its maiden season in the Mediterranean before heading to the Caribbean.


As a result, all of Princess’s Caribbean-based ships will have full Medallion services from the Autumn.


Caribbean Princess and Regal Princess are already Medallion-enabled.


The Medallion, which is the same size as a 10p piece, is fully-automated and has no visible technology such as an on-off switch or charging function.


Its features include a streamlined embarkation and disembarkation process, keyless stateroom access, on-demand beverage delivery and use of an interactive direction guide, OceanCompass.


Tony Roberts, vice-president Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “Having recently travelled on Caribbean Princess I can say first-hand that guests are finding their holidays enhanced with Princess Medallion as a new and memorable experience.


“This will include everyone who sails with us to the Caribbean this autumn and winter.


“Starting in April, we will continue the expansion to a total of five Princess Medallion ships expected this year as we continue on our path to fleet-wide activation.


“We look forward to bringing the experience to new groups for the first time, such as those sailing to destinations in Alaska and Mexico.”
