With the new Medallion, Princess Cruises starts a new wave of vacation travel. The small accessory in the size of a coin replaces the Cruise Card and will open doors to many amenities on board. You can create a personal cruise experience even before you embark your ship.

How does the Medallion work?

The Medallion uses a technology which is connected to readers throughout the ship and in port so that our crew can offer a better and more personal service.

In connection with the Ocean Compass which is accessible via your mobile phone, tablet, laptop, stateroom TV or via our touchscreens, the Medallion is your personal concierge and will help you to get along on board.

Which features does the Medallion offer?

The Ocean Compass will give you information about, for example, your next course and how you get there from your current location. You can localize family members and friends on board and savor delicacies offered by the crew based on your personal preferences. Furthermore, the Medallion allows you to order meals and drinks to your current location or to any location of your choice. In addition, the Medallion will be used for identification, payment and access to your stateroom.

If the Medallion has already been introduced on your ship, you can personalize your cruise experience in advance via a special website which is accessible via our section Manage Booking. In addition to personal data, reservations for restaurants, beverage packages and shore excursions, you can, for example, choose your favorite events and excursions and get appropriate recommendations on board. And if you enter all your personal data in advance, you will enjoy a smooth embarkation process.

How do I use the Medallion?

You can wear your Medallion as a wristband or pendant or just keep it in your pocket. The chip inside allows you to use the medallion without any transactions.

 If you don’t want to use the additional services or the Ocean Compass, you can choose the option “Safety Only”. In this case, the Medallion will only be used for identification, payment and stateroom access.
