SINGAPORE, 7 May, 2021: Princess Cruises has unveiled Dine My Way, another flexible MedallionClass enhancement that makes it easy for guests to pre-plan and tailor their dining experiences and pairs with the revolutionary OceanNow® on-demand service to offer the ultimate in onboard dining flexibility and convenience.

Dine My Way gives guests the freedom to make
reservations in onboard dining rooms and speciality restaurants at times they
prefer and with whom they wish to dine. Dine
My Way
also helps to optimise capacities in dining rooms and restaurants
onboard, manage wait times and gives guests significantly more flexibility.

When making a reservation, guests will be able to:

  • add additional friends or family
    members with whom they are travelling
  • select their preferred pace of
    dining (relaxed, quick)
  • indicate their desired seating
    location (near the window, close to the entrance) in the Ocean profile
  • share dietary preferences and
    allergen information
  • pick the same venue and dining
    time each night

“We believe guests are going to love the control and
customisation Dine My Way offers,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises
president. “Instead of restricting dining choices during the pandemic,
we’ve been able to expand the options for our guests and, thanks to the unique,
innovative capabilities of the OceanMedallion, reduce wait times and eliminate
the need to stand in line.”

In addition, Princess’ OceanNow on-demand menu has been expanded
to include entrees and beverage options from restaurants throughout the ship,
with guest’s requests delivered directly to their location. OceanNow orders can
be made using the MedallionClass app on a smart device, via the stateroom TV, or by having a crew member
place the order on the guest’s behalf.

will also include many expanded personalisation options so you can order your
perfect coffee drink, select your favourite steak sauce toppings, or pizza
condiments providing more customisation than ever.

have always appreciated the convenience of OceanNow, and because the pandemic
has expanded people’s use of ‘on-demand direct delivery services, we think even
more guests will embrace the ability to order what they desire and have it
delivered to them wherever they are on board,” notes Mario Siebaldi, Princess
Cruises senior vice president of Guest Experience. “It not only prevents unnecessary
queuing, more importantly, it elevates the guest experience.”

MedallionClass vacations are enabled by the award-winning OceanMedallion, a
wearable device that pairs with IoT-driven innovation to significantly enhance
and personalise the guest experience.

addition to service on demand, Princess MedallionClass Vacations are also
marked by touchless embarkation and disembarkation, frictionless commerce, and
keyless stateroom entry. Additional contactless capabilities accessible using
smartphones and tablets include way-finding, family and friends locator, and
interactive fun.
