The Ocean Medallion will be introduced to the Crown Princess on 24 July.  The new device is the same size as a €2 coin and replaces cruise cards. This technology opens guests’ doors while they approach; you can also find your friends or children onboard, as well as navigate your way around the ship, order drinks and snacks, and see times of activities and where they take place onboard.

The ship has a 3,100-guest capacity with a staff of 1,100. The trade were treated to lunch onboard and had the privilege of meeting ‘Sean’, the Food and Beverages Director. Sean has been working with Princess Cruises for 29 years and is responsible for ensuring that all guests and staff are catered for. A difficult job ensuring that the food is fresh and catering for over 4,000 dietary needs!

Crown Princess was on a British Isles cruise visiting Dublin, Glasgow, Belfast, Invergordon, Edinburgh, Paris/Normandy, London, Guernsey, and Cork.
