Carnival Corporation-owned Princess Cruises said that Regal Princess will be the second ship in its fleet to offer the Princess Medallion wearable technology.

Regal Princess will be fully activated for her Caribbean Season starting February 17, 2019. The Princess OceanMedallion, included complimentary, is a wearable device that elevates the guest experience by delivering enhanced experiences and personalized service resulting in high guest satisfaction scores, claimed the company.

The fully automated gadget has no visible technology, such as an on-off switch, and can be worn as a wristband, pendant, clip or even in a pocket. It offers a streamlined embarkation and disembarkation process; keyless room access; charging services; and interactive games.

The 3,140-guest Caribbean Princess was the first ship to have full Medallion access.

"Our guests have been absolutely wowed by OceanMedallion vacations on Caribbean Princess, and we are proud to roll-out the full Princess MedallionClass experience on Regal Princess starting early next year," said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises, the world's largest international premium cruise line.

"With two Princess MedallionClass ships sailing in the Caribbean, we continue on our path to fleet-wide activation providing even more guests an enhanced level of personalized service," Jan added.

Princess Cruises is a global cruise line and tour company operating a fleet of 17 modern cruise ships, carrying two million guests each year to more than 360 destinations around the globe, said the company.
