Celebrity Cruises Helps Travelers "Talk The Talk" While Traveling Globally

MIAMI, Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- English may be the universal language, but to feel truly immersed in the culture and vibe of a local destination, there's nothing quite as authentic as speaking like the locals do. So, modern luxury line Celebrity Cruises – with vacations visiting all seven continents, and a focus on enhancing the destination experience for its guests – has made it easy for vacationers to speak local languages with its new, industry-first app, "Cruise Lingo."

An interactive language and culture guide, and a customized version of the award-winning mobile app from TripLingo, Cruise Lingo allows travelers 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 onto Android and iOS smartphones and tablets from www.celebritycruises.com/mobile. 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 full-featured library of the 11 languages through an in-app purchase which unlocks more content.

About Celebrity Cruises: Celebrity Cruises' iconic "X" is the mark of modern luxury, with its cool, contemporary design and warm spaces; dining experiences where the design of the venues is as important as the cuisine; and the amazing service that only Celebrity can provide, all created to provide an unmatchable experience for vacationers' precious time.
