    We liked the aspect of getting into the cabin quickly. 

    It was not useful to us as a replacement for The Patter. I don’t like to swipe several screens to see what’s up next. I like looking at a full fold-out page to see the entire day at once. 

    As for WiFi, it was fast. Yet we wanted to use our free internet 500 minutes first before buying a package. The entire experience with that was horrible; it stole our minutes the first night out. It took a few days to get them back, and Alan at the computer desk was not too pleasant. The other tech assistants were great. Anyway, we barely used our 500 over the 2 weeks. We just checked email and communicated with our son and family nightly. Buying a plan would not have been a value for us. 

    Honestly, we don’t like the “big brother” aspect of the Medallion. Princess is constantly tracking your movements to point sell or up sell to get more money from you. Don’t we have enough of this already while at home?

    Agree that Medallion Net wi-fi is faster than any I have ever experienced onboard, matched my connection at home. We liked the convenience of the Ocean Medallion & look forward to all the additional portions that will be added. The quick embarkation & disembarkation was a big plus. Look forward to this being added to additional Princess ships.

    Now that you have experience it for 14days, on a scale of 1-10 how would you  rate Medallion? 




    Honestly, the Medallion was no big deal for us.  

    I had mine in my "cruise purse" so it unlocked the door for us which was nice.

    Roundman never took his with him ... just used the cruise card.

    What are your thoughts on the Medallion? 


    Chris, glad we were able to speak to you, Bob, and Nanci in CC Dining most evenings.  :classic_smile:

    Two things stood out to me:  No more medical forms to fill in when boarding or immigration forms  upon leaving.  Could this  lead to some problems down the road?  It appears there is no one to check what one brings back?  Guess the health form was not too be trusted so why have it. What do you think? 


    Hope everyone  had a great time and had safe travels back home.  See you again on another awesome voyage.  Chris
