Celebrity Cruises made it easy for vacationers to speak local languages with its new “Cruise Lingo” app.
An interactive language and culture guide, as well as a customized version of the mobile app from TripLingo, Cruise Lingo allows travelers access to authentic local phrases and relevant information relevant to their destination.
By speaking or typing a phrase – such as, “Where is the nearest ATM?” – into a mobile device, the translated language of the local destination appears on-screen. An interactive book offers multiple versions of each phrase, including formal and slang options. Other aspects of Cruise Lingo include voice-to-voice translation; a “flashcard” learning system and an on-demand “crash course” in local cultures. The crash course contains information including general etiquette, safety information, doing business, country information, travel tips, dining guide, music and local pop culture.
The free, new Cruise Lingo app can be downloaded onto Android and iOS smartphones and tablets here. Included in the free version of the app are 80 standard phrases in 11 languages; 56 cruise-specific phrases; 20 free uses of the voice translator; access to 2,000 dictionary words translated into all 11 languages and the culture crash course. Vacationers also can access a library of the 11 languages through an in-app purchase which unlocks more content.
