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.
