There’ll be no ‘404 Errors’ or timed out pages onboard Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess when she’s sailing out of Australia during the 2019/20 wave season.

Princess Cruises confirmed that the 2,600-passenger Golden Princess will be fitted with MedallionNet, the fastest internet at sea, on 20 December during her season based out of Melbourne.

She’ll be the second Princess ship to have super fast internet in Australia, following by Ruby Princess who’ll debut MedallionNet a month earlier.

Exactly how fast will Golden Princess‘ wi-fi be?


Well, according to the cruise line, onboard wi-fi speed will be equal to or exceeding the speed available on land. In other words, you should be fine to continue streaming the Golden Girls series from Stan.

“We know Travel Agents will also be excited by the local rollout of this upgraded technology – making it exceptionally easy for guests to share photos, videos and messages during their holiday.”

Golden Princess will be based out of Melbourne during the 2019/20 wave season where she’ll sail on a series of New Zealand, South Australia and South Pacific itineraries.


Australians keen to test out the fastest wi-fi at sea ahead of Golden Princess‘ arrival can do so on Ruby Princess and Regal Princess, which recently had their MedallionNet activated.

MedallionNet will also be installed over the next year on over half of the Princess fleet, including Coral Princess (5 April), Island Princess (15 May), Crown Princess (30 June), Emerald Princess (3 August) and Sky Princess (12 October).
