From next year, Princess Cruises will equip six additional ships with wearable technology, offering guests a more personal and immersive experience while on board.
With the wearable device, called “OceanMedallion,” guests can enjoy more personal crew interactions and interactive entertainment, according to the cruise line.
Enhanced experiences come in the form of an expedited and streamlined check-in process; keyless stateroom entry; on-demand food ordering and shopping services; a family and friends locator, which allows lost guests to easily reconnect with their party; as well as more interactive game play in the form of a digital scavenger hunt and customisable avatars.
The ships set to feature this enhanced service include Ruby Princess, Grand Princess, Enchanted Princess, Emerald Princess, Coral Princess and Island Princess.
Ruby Princess will be the first “MedallionClass” ship sailing in Australia and New Zealand, while Island Princess will sail on the first “MedallionClass” world cruise.
Cruisers from Singapore will also get to experience the MedallionClass when Regal Princess, the first ship to be equipped with the technology, arrives next November.
