The 3,140-guest Caribbean Princess has become the first ship in the Princess Cruises fleet to have full OceanMedallion access, it has been revealed.

OceanMedallion is a small, wearable device, roughly the same size as a 10p piece, that includes a raft of features intended to improve the passenger experience and personalise each cruise.

The device interacts with a number sensors around the ship to activate services and activities, for example keyless stateroom access, interactive directions and games, and a real-time view of itineraries.

Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises, said: “Having 100 per cent of our guests using OceanMedallion on every sailing of Caribbean Princess is a significant milestone that we are celebrating on the path to fleet-wide implementation.

“Our guests tell us that OceanMedallion is turning an already extraordinary experience on Princess Cruises into an even more spectacular holiday, making sailing on Caribbean Princess the ultimate Caribbean cruise.”

Caribbean Princess, which is based in the Caribbean all year round, also features MedallionNet, which gives guests faster internet streaming speeds equivalent to those on land.

OceanMedallion was first unveiled by Carnival Corporation CEO Arnold Donald in 2017.

It will continue to roll out as part of a phased fleet-wide activation plan with further announcements to be made in due course.
