We were on the regal 12/28 -1/7. We did not have the OM. We were a couples group of 5 couples, none of us had the OM. We spoke to a few of the people who had the OM. Most were very disappointed in the OM. One man told us in his cabin it was him, his wife & son. Only the son's OM would even open the door. They were also giving everyone the cruise card because you could not order with the OM. It looks like Princess was to aggressive in the roll out of the OM. The captain circle person told me not to expect to see this on any other ships in the near future. Many problems with getting this up and running on a ship many more than what was thought they would have. If you are elite you will get free internet which was great, very fast. It may not be ship wide on the Regal for a while. It is not even working the way it is suppose to in the cabins where they have it now.
We were on the Regal from 10/26 to 11/5/17
On our last evening one of our three cabins was converted to the RFID reader which required obtaining a new cruise card with an RFID chip in it in order to open the cabin door.
The conversion did not bother our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter sleeping in a bed for the first time.
She rolled out of bed landing on pillows placed on the floor and never woke up sleeping the rest of the night on the floor.
This is a huge undertaking in preparation for the full OM operation and I don't understand why so many CC members are so impatient and making such an issue out of this?
The little ones do not care and IMHO neither should anyone else.
Just enjoy the cruise.
