Princess MedallionClass® FAQ

Our frequently asked questions about the Medallion® device and OceanReady® steps

The MedallionClass Experience

Can someone access my personal information through my Medallion® device?
No, your Medallion device doesn’t store any personal information, so no need to worry if you lose it.

Can I wear my Medallion device in the pool?
Yes, it's waterproof, and heat, sand and salt resistant.

Is there a way to wear my Medallion device other than the lanyard?
Absolutely. You can choose from a variety of accessories, such as sports bands, clips, pendants and bracelets. Order them for yourself and your travel party now through the OceanReady® section of the Princess® app or purchase them on board at the OceanFront™ area.

How can I arrange to have my Medallion shipped to my home?
In the OceanReady section of the Princess® app, tap "Medallion" and complete or confirm your shipping information at least 13 days before your Princess vacation begins.

Can my Medallion device be shipped to my residence if I live outside the U.S.?
At this time, home shipping is only available for residents of the United States and Puerto Rico. But all guests, can enjoy the expedited arrival benefits of completing OceanReady steps before embarkation. Medallion devices will be waiting at the port for guests living outside the U.S. or if one was not mailed to you.

I need to pick up my Medallion device at the port. Will that be a problem?
Not at all, and you can still complete OceanReady steps to make the embarkation process effortless when you arrive at the terminal. Follow the steps on the Princess® app to complete your travel checklist (without shipping to your home). And when you arrive at the terminal, just show your OceanReady QR code on your mobile device and look for the Blue Arrival Lane to enjoy easy, effortless boarding. Pro Tip: Take a screenshot of the OceanReady Pass on your phone to have it handy!

Is a Medallion wearable safe to use if I have a pacemaker, or other medical device?
The Medallion wearable includes magnets and RF technology that have been designed and manufactured to meet the radio frequency (RF) requirements set by the Federal Communications Commission of the United States. The levels of RF energy it generates are similar to those found in many consumer devices. Manufacturers of Implantable Pacemaker and Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillators (ICDs) typically recommend that you keep your medical device 9 inches (23 cm) away from RF transmitters comparable to the one found inside the Medallion wearable. However, as every device differs, so you should check directly with the manufacturer of your medical device and physician for guidance.

How can I get help with my Medallion device on board?
Once on board MedallionClass ships, guests can visit OceanFront area and get assistance from one of our OceanNavigators. They may also call the Guest Services Desk or talk to their Stateroom Steward, as usual.

What happens if I lose my Medallion wearable?
If a guest notifies the crew of a lost Medallion device, it will be disabled and replaced at no cost. For security of purchase transactions, each Medallion device is associated with a guest profile that contains their onboard security photo. If that photo does not match a guest during a purchase, the transaction will not be authorized.

How does the Medallion device help with guest safety?
The new OceanSafety system accelerates and strengthens safety and security operations on board a MedallionClass ship. OceanSafety uses innovation to significantly improve the guest processing time and experience by removing friction from the process and allowing the ship and crew to operate more efficiently during embarkation, safety drills, port calls, disembarkation, and throughout the cruise.

Can someone hack the system and get personal info?
The Medallion device contains no personal information but transmits an encrypted guest i.d. to the Ocean guest experience platform. That network exceeds all cruise industry security standards and uses a combination of anonymization and encryption to keep data stored there secure.

Is there anything else I need to know about my Medallion wearable?
Just be sure to keep it with you at all times. In addition to unlocking a world of unique experiences, it also unlocks your stateroom door, and is used to make purchases on board.
