Princess Cruises launches sports betting at sea with Miomni

| By Conor Mulheir
Carnival Corporation-owned cruise line Princess Cruises has announced the introduction of Ocean Sportsbook, a real-time sports wagering option to be made available to guests on its MedallionClass cruise ships.

The sportsbook will offer customers the opportunity to bet on major sports competitions including professional and college American football, basketball, baseball and hockey, as well as a variety of other domestic and international events.

When the ship is in international waters, or where permitted by law, guests will be able to wager on sports events via the MedallionClass app, as well as place prop bets during live events taking place during the cruise.

Ocean Sportsbook has been built in partnership with software developer Miomni, and will be available on all Princess MedallionClass ships upon approval to return to service in 2021.

“On Princess MedallionClass cruises our guests can stay connected with their friends and family around the world, and now with Ocean Sportsbook, they can also stay connected to their favorite teams and wager on a host of events whenever they sail with us,” said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises.

“Taking a cruise vacation no longer means being disconnected from a big game, an iconic event or friends and family.”
