"(2:45 p.m. EST) -- When Princess passengers arrive at Terminal 2 at Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades, they'll be able to instantly connect with their cruise line through the new Ocean Medallion technology, once the project debuts.

The new technology integrated into Terminal 2 during its multimillion-dollar upgrade will serve Princess Cruises' Medallion-class ships, which use Carnival Corporation's proprietary Ocean Medallion wearable tech. The Ocean Medallion is a token that is capable of storing information and preferences, as well as other functions like paying for onboard purchases."

[Editor - when I embarked through terminal 2 on November 20, I saw nothing new]

"(9:15 a.m. EST) -- Princess Cruises will end its shared loyalty program(me) with P&O Cruises from December 12.

The program has allowed P&O UK passengers to accrue loyalty points from P&O sailings, which would then go towards increased membership in the Princess Cruises Captain's Circle Club.

Both P&O UK and Cunard ended the reciprocal agreement a number of years ago, but Princess has continued to honour it until now."

"Seven-night cruises on Ruby Princess will visit Glacier Bay National Park, while seven-night cruises on Star Princess will call at Tracy Arm Fjord. All cruises from Seattle will feature a late night in Juneau.

For those who wish to sample an Alaska Princess cruise, two four-night sailings on Golden Princess and one five-night sailing on Island Princess also are available.

Royal Princess will replace 3,080-passenger Emerald Princess, which is slated to reposition from Alaska to the Mediterranean 2019, for the line's biggest Europe season."

Makes sense. I expected the Sun and the Sea to go with the new builds coming out. Surprised that the Ruby is going rather than another Grand class.

2019 - 1 New Royal
2020 - 1 "Upgraded" Royal
2021 - 1 "Upgraded" Royal
2023+ - 1 "Upgraded' Royal (According the Captain on the last cruise)

So do they still consider the Emerald based in Australia?

Golden to P&O in 2020, Sun to China in 2019, Ruby based in Australia in 2020, Emerald already there, Sea will probably go to P&O or be sold...

No, Emerald is not considered an Australian based ship, she just cruises the Asia/Pacific Region.

Look's like we are facing an invasion of the Royal class...
