Does this bother anyone else?

Recommended Posts

Hi all-

 

On Royal Princess now (1st Princess Cruise  after cruising most other major lines!)

Love the Medallion features, using the app and keyless door entry. 

BUT:

Does anyone have privacy concerns with your names (including minor children’s names) being displayed on your stateroom placards?  I thought that once everyone was settled in after the 1st day that the names would disappear, but it looks like no.  

I’m not a hyper vigilant person to begin with but I was just wondering if other had concerns?

I don't love that they do that.  I see no reason for it.  I know others like it even less than I do, as I have seen those little name cards ripped off of some cabins.

No. Not unless you are trying to hide from someone onboard.

It’s never crossed my mind, but I could see that some folks might be concerned.

Prior to the Medallion Tablet outside your cabin they always displayed the passengers name on a print out card they would slide on under the mailbox. So really it remains the same.

It's never bothered me.  As it's always been this way (I think) on the cruises I've taken.  But, I do understand your point.  I think you can remove them.  I have often wondered if you do remove them, does the room steward replace them?

 

Counting down the days!

I don’ have concerns but then we don’t travel with children.  However if I did have concerns I would request to have the names not shown. Just a matter of going to PSD and making the request.

We have our own set of name placards for the old ships, I change our names and status on a daily basis. Look out for Mr and Mrs Groovy with tie dye status on your next cruise.

I believe Princess has always done this. I believe it reduces the amount of "misdirected" mail. But, if it bothers you, just remove it.

You can’t remove it as it’s digital.  Name and loyalty status (colored medallion) are displayed underneath in pic.....

I like walking down the corridor and looking at the tier levels, I really don't pay attention to the names. It doesn't bother me at all that our names are posted

I don't like it and see no real purpose. At the very least you should have the choice, display or not display.  Names, photos also, are private and I believe that the cruise line should respect that.

Suggest you include in your post cruise survey.

No, it doesn't bother me, at all.  On the other hand, I have no right to compel others to agree with my opinion.

 

I am really surprised that you can't change that display--either through your mobile phone/tablet or through your cabin TV.  If you have made inquiries--either of your steward or the passenger services desk--and have had that confirmed, then, as Skynight has suggested, you should make your point in the post cruise survey.  I know that others share your concern.

It would be trivial for the system to be configured to display guest information only when a proper Medallion is present; passenger or crew member with a legitimate purpose for seeing them.

 

That said, I don't really have a problem with it personally. But I get it. People post their entire lives on Facebook, but God forbid their names are displayed on a cabin door...

If you take your medallion to the board by the elevator and do a search for for your cabin mate, does it automatically indicate you cabin number & location to find them ?

 

It did so in the past & I'm still curious if they've changed things of not.

Ok - I did see another cabin with no names/status on my deck this morning, meaning it can be removed if requested, which is great.

 

Like I said, as an adult I don’t really have a problem with it but for children it’s a different situation IMHO.

Princess has had placards with names and Captain's Circle status for years.

It does show exactly where they are on the ship, so nothing has changed I guess...
