Exploring the UK and Ireland with Princess Cruises

I’m so excited to be going on my first Princess Cruise in September on board Crown Princess, which now features the Ocean Medallion.  I’ve wanted to try Princess for a long time, so this really is the perfect opportunity to see why so many people love Princess as a brand.  From the incredible food (including some new offerings such as Slice Pizzeria and the Salty Dog Grill), amazing entertainment and fun activities, I’m so excited to see it all first-hand.

Our itinerary

I’ll be joining Crown in Southampton before heading on a 4-night British Isles mini-cruise to Guernsey, Cork, Dublin and finishing in Liverpool.  This cruise will visit some of my favourite destinations and I really cannot wait to explore them all the Princess way

Ocean Medallion

What’s even more exciting is that this will also be my first experience of Ocean Medallion on board.  This brand-new technology promises to reimagine your cruising experience. Through a mixture of clever apps and a clever coin-like device (which replaces your classic cruise card), the Ocean Medallion helps you to expedite boarding, helps you find your way through the ship, lets staff know where you are so they can deliver food and drink directly to you and automatically opens your stateroom as your approach (to name but a few highlights!).  Take a look at the video below and at this previous blog post for more information – I’m seriously excited!

Make sure you follow me on social media – Instagram and Twitter – where I will be posting my experience and trip live.

This is a gifted trip by Princess Cruises.
