MedallionPay: Pay with your OceanMedallion in Port

Guests sailing with Princess Cruises can now pay for things in selected ports with their OceanMedallion. Until now, MedallionPay has only been able to be used to make onboard purchases but it can now be used at a number of outlets in cruise ports.

How to use MedallionPay in Port

MedallionPay allows guests to use their Medallion to shop in stores displaying the MedallionPay seal in their storefronts.

Your OceanMedallion will automatically verify your identity and the transaction is confirmed just like when you are onboard.

Although the roll out is in the early stages, the hope is that it will offer passengers extra security because there is no need to take large sums of cash or credit cards ashore.

“MedallionPay offers the ultimate in payment convenience and security for guests both on board 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.”

John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises

The credit card you have linked to your OceanMedallion can be used in stores that accept it, just by using your OceanMedallion to pay.

No credit card or personal information is stored on your OceanMedallion. The technology uses tokenisation, abstraction and encryption to make payments safe.

When making a purchase, merchants securely confirm the transaction with a two-factor authentication that exceeds typical credit card transaction.
