Princess Cruises has announced that three more ships in its fleet – Royal Princess, Crown Princess and Sky Princess – are to be fully Princess Medallion-activated; meaning a total of five ships in the fleet will now feature the award-winning technology.
The Medallion will be available on the 3,080-guest Crown Princess in July 2019, sailing from Southampton around the British Isles. The 3,560-passenger Royal Princess will also benefit from the technology from April as she departs for her first ever cruise season in Alaska.
The brand new 3,660-passenger Sky Princess, which joins launches in October, will be Medallion-ready when she embarks on her maiden season in the Mediterranean before heading to the Caribbean. This means all Princess Cruises’ Caribbean-based cruise ships will have full Medallion services from Autumn 2019.
The state-of-the-art Medallion, which is the same size as a 10p piece, is fully-automated and has no visible technology such as an on-off switch or charging function. Features include:
The three newly-announced ships will join the 3,140-passenger Caribbean Princess and 3,560-passenger Regal Princess, which are already Medallion-enabled.
Tony Roberts, Vice President, Princess Cruises UK and Europe, said: “Having recently travelled on Caribbean Princess I can say first-hand that guests are finding their holidays enhanced with Princess Medallion as a new and memorable experience. This will include everyone who sails with us to the Caribbean this autumn and winter. Starting in April, we will continue the expansion to a total of five Princess Medallion ships expected this year, as we continue on our path to fleet-wide activation. We look forward to bringing the experience to new groups for the first time, such as those sailing to destinations in Alaska and Mexico.”
