Celebrity Helps Travellers ‘Talk The Talk’

Celebrity Cruises is making it easier for its guests to speak local languages with its new, industry-first app, “Cruise Lingo.”An interactive language and culture guide, and a customized version of the mobile app from TripLingo, Cruise Lingo allows travellers easy access to authentic local phrases and relevant information to enhance their destination experience. By simply 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 features of Cruise Lingo include voice-to-voice translation; an intelligent “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 on to Android and iOS smartphones and tablets from .
