"The cruise giant also said one of its brands, Princess Cruises, had reached a long-awaited milestone. The Ocean Medallion technology project, first announced in early 2017, is in use for all 3,100 passengers on one ship, Caribbean Princess.

The cruise line had been phasing the technology in by groups of passengers rather than launching it all at once as originally planned.
During the earnings call, Carnival Corp. CEO Arnold Donald said guest satisfaction scores on the ship were up and are among the highest in the Princess fleet."

It does sound like a great improvement for the internet speed.
I wonder if the crew now has unlimited access or are they still charging them?
