Upon their return to service, every Princess Cruises' ship will boast land-like connectivity as part of the MedallionNet Wi-Fi service of the line, making distance learning, remote working, and the opportunity to securely conduct transactions, available while enjoying the ocean views thousands of miles from home.
Princess Cruises is now delivering super-charged internet connectivity via leveraging a new constellation of satellites in order to offer "the ultimate remote workstation – an office at sea."
Each of its Princess MedallionClass ships transmits enough bandwidth per liner to guarantee a superior connection for each passenger and the personal device they are using. The seamless integration of MedallionNet ensures guests can work from the deck as efficiently as in their office, with access to cloud-based enterprise applications like storage, email, and videoconferencing. There is an access point in all public areas and every stateroom, so travelers can move freely around the vessel as they work without frustrating signal drops.
As over 40% of the American workforce is working remotely, and with an expected 36.2M Americans are projected to telecommute by 2025, the office at sea is desirable to many.
In late 2021, Princess Cruises' connectivity partner, SES, will launch a new constellation of satellites that are expected to further super-charge MedallionNet and offer passengers the best connectivity possible at sea.
The bandwidth capacity not only delivers superior Wi-Fi service levels but also powers the onboard Princess MedallionClass experience. The cruise line's OceanMedallion replaces the traditional cruise card to expand touch-free options and personalization.
Working professionals are expected to appreciate features and amenities like keyless stateroom entry; on-demand beverage, food, and retail items delivered anywhere onboard; family and friends locator or chat function to find a travel partner when work is complete.
