Anyone who has ever vacationed on a cruise comes home wondering if they will be able to adjust to “normal” life again. It’s amazing how quickly we adapt to nightly gourmet dining that pleases our palettes, impeccable housekeeping services cleaning up after us, and maybe even a personal butler to do, well… anything! But leave it to Princess Cruises to raise the standard even higher with the MedallionClass ™ experience.
It all starts with the OceanMedallion™
OceanMedallion™ is your portal to the One Cruise Experience Access Network (OCEAN) technology platform. It lets you get whatever you need delivered on-demand, find your way around the ship, plan your day, and more.
The complimentary device is the size of a quarter and can be worn as a pendant, on a wristband, or slipped in a pocket. It acts as your onboard payment and stateroom key – doors securely identify you as you approach and unlock – but the OceanMedallion™ also “talks” to the ship, personalizing your cruise vacation.
What does MedallionClass ™ do for you?
Princess MedallionClass ™ ships facilitate physical distancing because you don’t need to wait in lines and many features can be used from your smart device anywhere on the ship. The technology focuses on your choices and preferences in real-time to create a personally customized and hassle-free vacation. The crew is already aware of your preferences and you don’t have to mention them again. There are infinite options for service and fun, beginning before you even set sail.
OceanReady® – The personalization begins at home when you upload your travel documents (i.e., passport, credit card) to your Princess profile. When you arrive at the port, bypass the check-in lines, and instead start your vacation with a personal check-in process. Then you just walk on board and begin your vacation!
OceanCompass™ –Princess MedallionClass ™ ships feature interactive digital displays that help you find your way around the ship, make dinner reservations, view photographs, or learn about the next port of call. You can access OceanCompass through touch screens throughout the ship, your stateroom TV, and even your own mobile devices.
OceanNow® – Get whatever you need delivered without ever waiting in lines or interrupting your fun. Forgot sunscreen? Have some delivered to the pool. Want a drink in the Casino? Just summon one. You can also plan in advance to have food and beverage delivered to a specific place at a designated time. Order a mug of hot chocolate before you go to a movie under the stars and it will be waiting when you arrive.
Ocean® Casino – On MedallionClass ™ ships, you no longer need to physically be in the casino to wager on games. Using a smart device or some portals, you can play slots, bingo, roulette, and more from poolside or anywhere onboard.
JourneyView™ – You can scroll through an interactive timeline of everything that’s happening on your cruise and bookmark events. You can view events on a smart device or the ship’s portals.
PlayOcean® – Kids of all ages can enjoy playing family games, trivia, and an interactive ship wide digital scavenger hunt on smart devices. Your mobile device can also act as a game controller to play games on the giant Movies Under the Stars screen.
OceanView® – You can stream over 100 hours of award-winning Ocean Original travel shows to watch anywhere on the ship on your smart device (no charge) or on stateroom TVs.
MedallionNet® – Wi-Fi at sea on MedallionClass ™ ships is as fast as on land. Additional multi-band antennas offer true bow-to-stern coverage no matter where you sail. For an affordable price (as low as $9.99 per day, some discounts available) you can stay connected anywhere on the ship, stream music, movies, and sports, and even make voice and video calls back home using WhatsApp or Viber.
