It’s time for you to discover the incredible possibilities of a Princess MedallionClass™ Vacation, featuring  the complimentary Princess OceanMedallion™. The OceanMedallion is a wearable device that elevates the guest experience by delivering more personalized service than you could ever imagine.

Last November, I had the chance to tour the Caribbean Princess, the first ship to become a Medallion Class ship, and it was amazing what the Ocean Medallion can do!  For all of us Walt Disney World fans, it’s similar to our MagicBands, but Princess has added a lot more features that you can use during your cruise!  So, it’s like a “Next-Gen” MagicBand.

As you can see, the Ocean Medallion will be personalized for your specific cruise, it will have your name, the name of the ship & the sail date of your cruise.  It’s a bit smaller than a quarter, and is easily carried in a lanyard, or you can purchase other items, such as bracelets, necklaces, etc. to hold your medallion.   Princess Cruises will ship your medallion directly to you before your cruise, and the price of the medallion is included with your cruise fare.  The accessories, however, will be an additional charge.

Also, the medallions will be color-coded to match your status with Princess Cruises’ Loyalty program–the Captain’s Circle.  For first time Princess Cruisers, you’ll get a blue Ocean Medallion.  I will be telling you all about the Captain’s Circle in a future blog post, but for now, the levels are:  Gold (after your first cruise), Ruby, Platinum & Elite.

The complimentary OceanMedallion is the portal to amazing vacation possibilities for you. It’s the size of a quarter and can be worn in a variety of ways: as a wristband, pendant, clip or even in your pocket. Consider the OceanMedallion the key to opening doors: to the stateroom, the ship and experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
