Thanks for the review. I will be on the Royal for the first time Nov . 30th. I have sailed with the Medallion before. Maybe I am in the minority, but I don't want to carry my phone around with me to use the apps. I don't like being tracked. I sail to disconnect . I did notice my last Medallion cruise there were fewer servers going around offering drink service. So like the self check out at the grocery stores, this is probably a way to cut the need for man hours by way of using our apps.
