MedallionClass® service starts with your Medallion®, put on your quarter-sized wearable device and your cruise experience is instantly simplified. Start your experience with Contactless Boarding, download the MedallionClass® app, and get OceanReady® at home, by selecting your arrival window so everyone isn’t trying to board at the same time.

Enjoy the seas with ease. MedallionClass® service includes simplified safety training (just watch the video in your stateroom), MedallionNet® Wi-Fi available throughout the ship, and dig into your favourite TV, movies, and Ocean Originals on the enhanced video-on-demand system in your stateroom.

Once you’ve put your request in, the app will find the nearest available crew member and provide real-time updates as to the status of your delivery. Want to book a dinner reservation or participate in entertainment events on board? Make those reservations easily through the app and check to see availability at any given food or entertainment venue with ease. Create your own custom itinerary so you don’t miss any of the programs you’d like to be a part of.

Don’t worry about carrying around your cash or cards on board, your MedallionPayTM takes care of that.

Expert tip

It's a great idea to book specialty dining, spa treatment and shows etc. prior to cruising, as they can get booked out. You can do that through cruise personaliser prior to sailing.
