    Booking On-Board

    I just got off the 18 Aug - 25 Aug cruise. I saw the double credit offer , but as others have said, it is limited to Caribbean and Panama Canal cruises.

    transfer to Miami Intl Airport

    I am flying into and out of Miami for my upcoming CB cruise . I am using a transfer ($29) to the port , but I am taking a Princess excursion that will take me back to the airport. The cost seems reasonable to me as it includes an airboat ride . Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Status of Ocean Medallion?

    I have actual experience with it and it does work (11 March 2018 - Regal Princess - Lido Deck Cabin ) . You can leave it in your pocket and they can see you on their terminal . I remember sitting at the bar and seeing people’s faces come up as they walked by. Apparently when you want something they push on your face and the folio as well as Captains Circle info comes up and that is what they use to complete your purchase . When I was on board I actually asked them to use that instead of the card . They liked using the card only because that is what they were used and most passengers still had to use the card . I guess I took my “role” as “test pilot” more seriously lol . Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Status of Ocean Medallion?

    I believe that on some of the early cruises they sent out the bands . but by the time of my cruise in March they only sent the lanyard with the plastic holder. I posted pictures of the band , lanyard / holder and cruise card I used. I was not a fan of the lanyard at all and that is why I got the band, but in reality it never needs to be seen so and "holder" is more for convenience / fashion .

    I saw pictures of the different colors when I was on the Regal in the area where the Ocean Compass display was . They were also selling the bracelets and necklaces you could wear and that is where I purchased my blue band.

    It doesn’t . I am on the 18 August cruise as well and got the same email . I guess I will wait and see what happens when I board . The one “adjustment” I am making is that I am taking my blue band just in case they spring the medallion on us on this cruise :) . Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    The Sky Princess

    I made a mistake in that I meant deck 17 / Sun , the level the Retreat Pool is located on . I am curious if they will create any special access privileges to the retreat pool in a similar fashion to what Carnival is doing with the Havana area on their latest ships.

    Status of Ocean Medallion?

    My cruise was in March and it never popped out . When I received mine via FedEx it came with a lanyard / plastic holder and I bought the strap because for me it was more convenient that way . My biggest gripe is that little piece of rubber was not cheap. BTW I just took the picture with the blue strap for the post on this thread. Sent from my iPad using Forums

    The Sky Princess

    I am really interested in their new concept and I spend almost all my pool time at the retreat pool on the Royal Class ships . I am really curious if they will be any perks for staying in a Sky level room as some other cruise companies have done with similar areas . Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Status of Ocean Medallion?

    I am actually a fan of the medallion program and I was fortunate enough to be in the test group on my recent Regal cruise . The project has a lot of potential and I hope that they manage to work out the bugs and roll it out . I am excited about the rumors regarding the Caribbean Princess as my next cruise is on it in two weeks and I wouldn’t mind being a test pilot again . I regards to the comment about receiving the medallion before the cruise , the truth is that you actually do not need the physical token until you board . You can do all the precruise setup up through the app and the ocean-compass website. It also saves them the shipping and packaging costs ( >$30k per cruise estimated) .
