Not up to your standards
Actually, the device offers the customer a way to receive a more custom tailored experience as well as more convenience. Rather than having to swipe your card to unlock your cabin door, you just need to approach it. When making a purchase onboard, or leaving or boarding the ship, you just need to stand there -- you don't need to fumble with your card. If you do a little bit of setting the program up, you will be presented with information that is pertinent to you.
The only information stored on and transmitted by the device is your file number (not folio number). That number is matched by the computer networks to your file which has all your information (as it does now). Should someone get your device, they would not have access to any personal information.
It may not be the best there is, and as I said it doesn't make any difference to me, but at least Princess is trying to improve the customer experience rather than just staying the way they are.
