Princess Cruises said it will fully activate Ocean Medallion-linked
services on four more ships, starting with the Regal Princess on Feb. 17.
The Ocean Medallion is a wearable device that lets
passengers unlock their cabin door, do transactions, play games, compile a
custom agenda and personalize onboard services. It was introduced in test mode
on the Caribbean Princess last year and recently became fully functional.
Princess said functionality will be added to the Crown
Princess in July and Sky Princess in October. The Regal Princess will become
the first ship sailing on the U.S. West Coast to get Ocean Medallion
Correction: The ship getting the Ocean Medallion on Feb. 17 is the Regal Princess.
