Guests will also receive a rebate on each purchase.
Princess Cruise has announced that guests onboard Princess Medallion ships can now use their medallion onshore for purchases.
According to the press release, Guests sailing on Princess MedallionClass™ ships now have a contactless purchasing option that eliminates the need for them to carry cash or credit cards into destinations on their cruise vacation. The premium cruise brand today announced the expansion of MedallionPay™, the frictionless payment experience that lets guests use their Princess Medallion® wearable device to shop, play, eat and drink, with a number of merchants in ports of call in the Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, and all Alaska ports of call, and also to now include 7% back on shoreside purchases as an onboard ship credit for the inaugural year.
The "Medallion Guru" and Princess President John Padgett said, "MedallionPay offers the ultimate in payment convenience and security for guests both onboard and now in ports we visit seamlessly blending the onboard and destination experience." "What makes MedallionPay extra special is the instant onboard value it delivers to guests in addition to base benefits with their associated credit card."
"We are so excited to be partnering on the MedallionPay program with Princess Cruises," said Wendy Tarapani, Diamonds International. "Our guests are finding it an easy way to make their purchases since MedallionPay is a natural extension to the onboard experience."
