Ocean Medallion Question Thread - Part 1

Hope so!  We're on the Sky in January.  Regardless, we'll have fun.  We love cruising and won't be concerned about any little glitches that may come up.  A vacation, like life, is what you make of it! 

Same is true for us.  Our medallion cruise in Feb went very well;  Sky was built for the medallion; so don't expect any issues.  However, it won't ruin our vacation no matter what happens.

Anyone seeing an issue where the dinning info under “my journey” part of the Medallion app does not match what is showing under the online cruise personalizer?

 

My cruise personalizer shows late traditional which is correct, but the info under my journey shows anytime dinning which is incorrect. That leads to another question, with traditional dining ones cruise card would show which dining room and which table you had been assigned to. How is this done with the medallion cruises?

Following, as ours is showing the same. It won't hurt to confirm once on board, I guess.

My CP shows a confirmed traditional dining assignment but like you “My Journeys” shows “Any” so it’s apparently another MedallionClass glitch which is on all 3 of our future MC cruises. 🙄

 

On our MedallionClass cruise our dining room & table assignment were on a card in our cabin.

Thanks. I guess I’ll need to remember to take that card with me the first few nights. If not, I’d try to remember it, stop off at Vines for a pre dinner glass of wine and then have it slip my mind completely. At least with the old cruise card, I could simply take a quick glance at it, as we approached the MDR -and hopefully the right one!

 

Good to know that at least three of us have the same Medallion AT glitch showing up.

Of course for those of us who chose Any, the My Journeys is showing correctly...! 😃

There is nothing "traditional" about me.... Be there, or be square!

Well.... That last bit in green certainly is traditional. I tend to say, "Be there or be octagonal". Yes, I get weird looks but it's mostly from people too young to realize what just went on. Of course they tend to give me weird looks anyway...

what applications would enhance 'your' OM experience ...

 

None.  I do not want or intend to carry a PDA around the ship.  Does nothing to enhance my onboard experience.  Therefore, the question of adding apps is moot.

We just received our medallions at home. I opened the package on back porch & dropped them on the concrete. I had not removed them from the 5 1/2x3 1/2"  card in which they were shipped. Any idea if I may have done damage? Thanks!

Nope. They would probably survive a 10 story drop on concrete & still survive.

Scan for Bluetooth items near your phone if you have a smartphone.

We paid in full yesterday.  We still have one circle that is not green.  It's our Cruise Personalizer.  We have chosen not to pre-book excursions or any other options in the Personalizer.  So our OceanReady Pass says we are "Incomplete".  Does anyone know how to complete our OceanReady Pass without booking anything in the Cruise Personalizer?

In my understanding, you do not need to book anything in the Cruise Personalizer. Once you have filled in all the information in the section titled "Guest Check-In", you are finished. See quote in blue from the Guest Check-In page. If you have provided all the Guest Check-In information that is required, and the MedallionClass™️ app still shows "incomplete", you may be having an issue with the app itself.  Good Luck!

 

Getting ready for your Princess MedallionClass Vacation

Two quick steps for an easy check in:

  1. Required Passenger Check-In

    Start by completing all the required information for each passenger listed below. This may include providing your guest information, your emergency contacts, your shipboard account details and other important steps.

I thought it would be a great idea to have a sticky so everyone can put their questions in one place for any questions about the ocean medallion so others who have experienced it or have answers could help out rather than having many threads open.

 

This is a great way to share experiences and knowledge.  Plus maybe we can get some official answers on here at some point!

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Figured I would start with what I have experienced in regards to the medallion. 

 

I know one of the big questions asked if when the medallion sailings get added to the Ocean ready app.  It appears for now that it's somewhere around the 60 day mark.  Mine have been added on their own without having to add them myself.

 

Another question I have been seeing posted here with frequency is when when the medallion be mailed.  It appears for now that Princess is mailing them out so cruisers receive them around 2 weeks prior.  I know when you order the email received does say 2-4 week however.  

 

Also see people questioning whether or not you need your cell phone all the time to use the medallion.  Without carrying your cell phone, it does work for opening your door, charging at any venue like stores, bars and speciality restaurants as well as using in the casino.  You can also use the large screens that are around the ship to locate those in your party and other things. 

Perhaps other posters can share their latest experiences with it.

 

I've used in twice on the Regal and I'm using in next month on the Caribbean Princess and excited to see how much more it can do now.

Why would anyone want to give up personal information to an unknown entity? Have you ever had you CC # stolen, ever had your ID stolen? Don't tell me this can't happen. This info is highly valuable and can be easily be scraped from these companies. Are you sure  your soda purchase or your jewelry purchase is going to be safe on a ship with doubtful wi-fi connection? It's your guess. Big brother is all around.

Thanks.  All our other info is complete.  Still 3 months to go before our cruise so I'll monitor.  Hopefully all will be resolved before SailAway!

I'm not sure what this is in reference to? How do you pay onboard then?  Cash no worky!!!

I just don't get why people are upset with a medallion.  You can choose to cruise or not to cruise.  You can choose to cruise with Princess who is using the medallion or go elsewhere.   If you are that worried about Princess, or other companies having all your personal data; well this is the 21st century and companies have access to all your data. If you have been to the doctor, hospital, movies, amazon, bank;  they all have your data and information.  Have fun and remember to don't worry about the small stuff.

They have your personal information or else you don't sail. You need the medallion or your card to make any purchases onboard. even during  pre-medallion times, so your arguments are not very valid. The entity is hardly unknown.

We leave on the 26th of October on our cruise.    Filled out personalizer and everything in ocean medallion app.   Everything was confirmed received email stating it was completed and will be mailing medallion.   Looked at app today and it says can not start ocean ready and if it does the final step, selecting medallion etc is incomplete now.   Everything was fine yesterday.   Thinking maybe they are processing to be mailed, not sure.   Anyone know?

The app has glitches.  You can get ocean ready with two green checkmarks and a barcode.  Next day you open app and it says incomplete without green checkmarks.  Suggest that if you do get ocean ready with green checkmarks; you take a screen shot of the barcode and checkmarks;  that is what I did and used the screen shot at the port
