Princess Cruises has announced that three more of its ships - Crown Princess, Golden Princess and Ruby Princess - will join the Ocean Medallion Class fleet.

The Ocean Medallion is a wearable device - the same size of a 10p piece – that pairs up with the Ocean Compass, acts as a ‘digital concierge’ and is accessible via personal mobile devices, stateroom TVs and interactive displays throughout the ship.

Together, the Ocean Medallion and Ocean Compass can be used to: streamline the embarkation and disembarkation process; unlock a guests’ stateroom door as approach, replacing key cards; enable guests to purchase merchandise, services, excursions, food and drinks; provide enhanced dining experiences based on food and drink preferences; enhance interaction with crew members and other guests ; help guests find their way to venues around the ship; amd to make reservations for the onboard spas and restaurants.

Both Crown Princess and Golden Princess will be Ocean Medallion ready in November 2018, with Ruby Princess in January 2019. Four other ships have been scheduled to feature the new technology: Regal Princess on November 13; Royal Princess on January 19, 2018; Caribbean Princess on March 18, 2018; and Island Princess on May 16, 2018.

Tony Roberts, vice president for the cruise line UK and Europe, said: “By the beginning of 2019, seven Princess ships will be in the Ocean Medallion Class fleet and we’re looking forward to others being equipped with the Ocean Medallion in the future. Over the next few years, more and more of our guests will be able to experience the new technology to have an even more personalised and memorable cruise.”
