Yes you can download the ocean ready app to your smartphone.  Set up a account within the app and fill out the info;  or if you want you can go to ocean.com and fill out the info that way.

Get a different TA.. One that is "non-existent" isn't worth a thing. You don't "have" to do anything if you don't want. You can show up at the ship and they will give you a Medallion and give you any assistance you need. If you want to get the apps in advance then that's a good plan but it's not "necessary". If you have a Medallion cruise you don't have to "order" the Medallion.

The ship is clean but has it's problems. The food is only OK in our opinion compared to any of the other Princess ships.

This is something you do yourself. Don't even involve the T.A.

If you don't want to do anything, just complete the immigration information in the cruise personlizer as normal, print out your boarding pass(es) and show up at the pier.

This is our 9th cruise on the Caribbean Princess. We still love her today as much as we did on our first cruise. Everyone has a different opinion regarding the food. We have found it to be very good, in the buffet and main dining room. Is it as good as 10 years ago? No, but it is still pretty good to us.  Have had great service from both the room steward and the wait staff in the main dining room.

If you look at #2 post on this thread; I explained how to obtain your medallion.  Try and order your medallion with my advice; if you still have issues write back.

Do you have a smartphone or ipad tablet?  If so, download the ocean ready app from the app store. Set up an account; it should be same account as your cruise personalizer user name and password.  Once account is set up you can input all the info; passport and photo's then submit to get your medallion mailed to your home. One more thing;  when is your cruise and is it on a ship that has ocean medallion on it?  If your cruise is more than four months out; you won't be able to complete the ocean ready app info

Putting all that info of my passport etc on my phone to speed up checkin makes me very nervous in this time of identity theft and data breaches.
