If are planning on taking a trip to cruise the Caribbean, then do it in style!
Princess Cruise Line’s new Ocean Medallion will give you a cruise experience to remember!
I’m proud to have partnered with Princess Cruises to bring you this post.
What Is Ocean Medallion?
Ocean Medallion by Princess Cruises is going to change the way your cruise! From the way you embark to the way you order your cocktails, Ocean Medallion is all about ease.
Before you set sail, you will be asked to download the OceanReady app. This is where you will input your photo and travel documents (you can photograph your passport too!) and you will order your personalized Ocean Medallion.
The Medallion itself is about the size of a quarter. It is magnetized around the edges and comes with a lanyard. This will be your “key” to everything the ship has to offer! To embark, you simply tap the face of your Medallion to a matching sensor and all your information appears before the attendant. Say good-bye to long entry lines! It’s “smooth sailing” from there!
The Ocean Medallion makes getting off and on the ship much easier when you are docked at each port. Tap your medallion when you leave the boat and do the same when you come back in. Ocean Medallion makes it easy to stay connected!
We are all familiar with the typical key card we get from hotels, resorts, and cruises that you’ve taken in the past. The new Ocean Medallion takes away the worry and hassles that come with a key card. Instead, your medallion acts as your key card for every activity and experience on the ship.
Starting with your stateroom, next to your stateroom you will notice a screen with your personal information clearly displayed. As you begin approaching your room wearing your medallion, your stateroom will unlock automatically, which means you can use those hands to carry sweets and coffee to your room in the morning!
In the mood for coffee from the International Cafe? Tap your medallion on the sensor and your order your favorite iced teas and lattes! Your Ocean Medallion will take care of all your purchases for you!
The medallion is synced to various apps that you can download prior to your trip. They are:
OceanCompass – With an interactive map of the ship that will help you navigate your way. It also has a chat function for you to keep in touch with your traveling party.
PlayOcean -Interactive games that can be played on the deck for game night or at numerous screens found on each of the decks. Games ranging from a simple “would you rather” to an elaborate scavenger hunt will keep the ENTIRE family happily entertained! I personally got a little hooked on the trivia. I would love to hear your favorites!
OceanNow-This app might be my favorite! From OceanNow you could order drinks (cocktails, mocktails, or coffee) from almost any place on the ship..and they will arrive in minutes. This app will track your purchases too! You could also request complimentary extras like robes or ice and you could even order gifts from the gift shop!
OceanView– Want to learn more about your cruise or other destinations? This is the app to watch! You can also find OceanView on your television in your stateroom!
OceanCasino– This app allows you to play all your favorite games right at your fingertips!
Each of these apps offers unique experiences and tools that will make your vacation comforting and carefree!
I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t mention MedallionNet (the fastest internet at sea)! It is easy to stay connected and wired even in the middle of the ocean with MedallionNet. Being connected allows you to access all that OceanMedallion has to offer and more!
Princess Medallion Accessories
The included lanyard makes things easy for kids and adults, but if you want something more stylish, Princess Cruises will have something for you! You can choose from clips, necklaces, sports bands, and bracelets. All can be personalized to suit your tastes!
When your cruise is over, keep your medallion as a souvenir to mark all you’ve seen and all you’ve done on your voyage.
I love OceanMedallion so much; it has changed the way I look at cruising. You will love the exceptional service, the personalization, the efficiency, and the ease that Princess Cruises brings to you through their new Ocean Medallion. You could simply cruise the Caribbean, or you could cruise the Caribbean in state-of-the-art style!
