SANTA CLARITA — Princess Cruises’ latest MedallionClass enhancement makes it easy for passengers to pre-plan and tailor their dining experiences,
Dine My Way, the cruise line’s new flexible dining system, was unveiled yesterday by the cruise line. Dine My Way pairs with Princess’ OceanNow on demand service to offer the ultimate in onboard dining flexibility and convenience, says the company.
Passengers can make reservations in onboard dining rooms and specialty restaurants at times they prefer and with whom they wish to dine. Dine My Way also helps to optimize capacities in dining rooms and restaurants on board and manage wait times.
When making a reservation, passengers are 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 window, close to 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 customization Dine My Way offers,” said Jan Swartz, President, Princess Cruises. “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 through-out 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.
