3rd Party medallion holders (wearables)

We will be going on our first cruise on Princess in August. I understand we will be issued a medallion instead of an access card. We have already placed our order for the medallion, but on the app, we are also able to order medallion wearables.

1. Are medallions sufficient on their own if we choose not to order a holder or wearable?

2. Are there 3rd party wearables available, via Amazon or somewhere else

3. What are your thoughts (the seasoned cruisers) concerning wearables?

Looking forward to the answers. We will be on our first Medallion Princess cruise in December.

When you order the medallion, it automatically comes with a plastic holder (much like a card holder) and a lanyard. These are free (included with the medallion). You can purchase additional holders (necklaces, bracelets, belt clips, etc) off the medallion site or other sites, or even on the ship.

I don't see the need to purchase additional holders, but it is simply a matter of individual desire. If you do purchase from a third party site, make sure you match the measurements of the medallion and the wearable.

For me, I simply use a third-party belt clip that attaches to the supplied medallion holder. Another option is to remove the medallion from the supplied holder and keep it in your pocket (if you have one) like a large coin (think 50 cent coin).
