Princess Cruises’ MedallionClass ship, Sky Princess, will feature in the first two episodes of the new series of Channel 5’s BAFTA-winning show, ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’, which airs from Sunday 9 May at 9pm.
The episodes follow Jane McDonald as she travels the Caribbean on a 14-night cruise aboard Sky Princess. The first leg takes the former cruise ship singer south-east from Fort Lauderdale, Florida toward the line’s private resort, Princess Cays. From there, Jane continues along to the Virgin Isles and St. Thomas, ending on the island of St. Martin.
During her time on Sky Princess, Jane experiences first-hand the cruise line’s award-winning OceanMedallion wearable device, which replaces the traditional cruise card and pairs with embedded IoT (“Internet of things”) -driven innovative technology to significantly expand touchless options and personalisation. Features include touchless embarkation, keyless stateroom entry, contactless payments, and on demand food, drinks and retail items delivered anywhere onboard.
The OceanMedallion, 10p sized, is a wearable device~ that enables everything from faster boarding, to the ability to locate your loved ones around the ship, to whatever you need, delivered! The all-in-one MedallionClass app interacts with your Medallion to put the MedallionClass digital experiences at your fingertips. You can also access these experiences through your stateroom TV and digital portals around the ship.
The 3,660-guest ship, which launched in October 2019, is scheduled to be homeported in Southampton, marking her debut to the UK.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises UK & Europe vice president, said: “As our homeport ship, we are excited for viewers to join Jane as she discovers what it’s like to sail on the beautiful Sky Princess. Viewers can also look forward to seeing the OceanMedallion in action, whilst also enjoying some escapism as they follow Jane’s relaxing cruise around the Caribbean.”
Sky Princess is also offering a series of UK Seacations, departing from Southampton this summer with a collection of 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 night itineraries. Treat yourself to a resort-style staycation at sea this summer and book your cruise with fares from only £489pp*. Plus enjoy an all-inclusive holiday that comes with stunning views of the British coastline! These balcony cruises come with a drinks package, wifi and all gratuities covered, so you can sit back and enjoy the scenery with the knowledge that everything is taken care of. Why not step in Jane’s footsteps…
In fact we’ve been onboard!
Back in October 2019 a few of us were lucky enough to experience 4 wonderful nights onboard gorgeous new Sky Princess, and we fell head over heels for her.
Sincerely, she was amazing, and the hype around MedallionNet isn’t unfounded – that is seriously fast! The new venues and staterooms are gorgeous, and the dining options are more than enough to satisfy pretty much any craving and appetite.
Becky – Cruise Specialist:
The Medallion is such a unique experience. My favourite feature has to be ‘track your shipmates’ and being able to order a drink from your cabin balcony! The shows were absolutely incredible, and Rock Opera has gone to the top of my favourite performances at sea.
Gill – Cruise Specialist:
I loved MedallionClass! From being able to order drinks and having them delivered directly to you with just a few taps on the app, to simply being able to see your shipboard account – it’s just amazing! And the internet onboard is so fast… even out at sea I was able to video call my husband (and dog!), without any lag or connection issues!
Jess – Marketing Manager:
I hadn’t experienced a Princess Cruises trip before, and Movies Under The Stars is something else! We watched the Rugby World Cup from the hot tub, basking in the sunshine of the Adriatic, and the atmosphere was electric!
The Sky Suites are really impressive too – the views from there are phenomenal.
