at CES 2017 in January, the Ocean Medallion goes well beyond the growing number
of wearables used by theme parks and other holiday companies by leaving behind
the required action of "tap" and ushering in a new paradigm for guest
Ocean Medallion makes cruising more personal, immersive, simple and seamless
than previously considered possible. At the heart of this personalised
experience is the Ocean Medallion, which enables endless holiday possibilities.
Ocean Medallion has no discernible technology -- no on-off switch, no charging,
no menu to navigate -- and can be worn as a pendant, on a wristband, in a clip
or simply placed in a pocket to reveal enhanced services and personalised
experiences without guests having to push a button or take any action. The pre-cruise
engagement will allow guests to provide preferences that detail their wants,
needs and desires so their on-board experience can be personalised.
with the Medallion is the Ocean Compass™ -- a digital concierge accessible by
all guests using interactive displays throughout the ship, on stateroom TVs,
via guests' own smart devices or through a crew member.
example, guests can find their way to venues around the ship; make reservations
at the Lotus Spa®, specialty dining restaurants and for shore
excursions; arrange celebrations; view and purchase photographs; learn about
the destinations they will visit and activities at each port of call and more.
The Ocean Compass will invite guests to experiences based on their individual
needs, wants and desires.
of the initial service innovations include:
- Ocean Ready: Expedites embarkation as
required information is added to the guest profile at home.
- Stateroom Access: The Ocean Medallion
will unlock a guest's stateroom door – replacing the key card.
- Here & Now™: Guests can place food
and beverage orders and have them delivered to select locations.
- There & Then™: Guests can place
select food and beverage orders and have them delivered to where they plan
to be at a designated time.
- Ocean Navigate: Accessed through the
Ocean Compass, guests can learn the whereabouts of their family as they
enjoy activities throughout the ship and be guided seamlessly in finding
their way around the ship. Friends and family will also be able to easily
communicate with each other through a seamless messaging service.
