Australia to welcome MedallionClass
PRINCESS Cruises is set to bring its MedallionClass holiday experience to Australia for the first time, with the cruise line announcing the expansion of the personalised technology to include six more ships in 2020.
The initiative will be rolled out on board Ruby Princess on 27 Jan 2020, and will be followed by Grand Princess on 29 Mar, Enchanted Princess on 15 Jun, Emerald Princess on 16 Aug, Coral Princess on 16 Oct, and Island Princess on 20 Dec.
Australian passengers will have the chance to experience the MedallionClass offering on voyages departing at the end of Jan until 04 Apr, during Ruby Princess’ local homeporting season.
“We can’t wait to introduce a holiday set to revolutionise the travel experience direct from our door step,” said Princess Cruises Senior Vice President Asia Pacific, Stuart Allison.
“Australian guests eager to experience MedallionClass before it reaches Australia can book fly-cruise itineraries to Alaska, the Baltic and the Caribbean on 10 other ships in the Princess fleet,” he added.
The MedallionClass experience offers guests a range of easy to use personalised options, including express check-in, an ondemand food, beverage and retail delivery service, a “Family and Friends” locator with the ability to chat with pax plus directional info to help navigate the ship.
The service also includes keyless stateroom entry, an interactive voyage timeline that shows the various scheduled events, as well interactive game play such as scavenger hunts and customisable avatars.
