CruiseAppy, a new startup that launched a Mobile App & Video Streaming Platform for Cruise Travel Agents earlier this month, has chosen to partner with ArrivalGuides to provide best-in-class destination content.

The app, available via Apple’s App Store and Google Play, is downloaded by cruisers under the brand of their Cruise Agent. The app is feature-rich, offering everything needed to provide inspiration for cruise holidays. It contains video content, predictive search and booking technology, interactive price trackers and an online chat with personal travel agents and port destination guides that can be pushed to clients as they float into port via geolocation features.

CruiseAppy has integrated the ArrivalGuides API into its platform and mapped worldwide cruise line itineraries and ports of call to the comprehensive destination guides, providing recommendations pre-cruise and useful in-cruise information to enhance the cruise holiday experience.

Peter Whittle, Co-Founder & CEO of CruiseAppy said, “We wanted to provide a step up in port destination content that has been traditionally available to cruisers, all integrated with features that provide inspiration, sales, loyalty and insight tools for cruise sellers.

Lonely Planet-owned ArrivalGuides were natural partners with their world class city guides covering Attractions, Dining, Cafés, Shopping, Bars & Nightlife plus Do & See information, all supported with high quality imagery and accessible via a comprehensive API for easy mapping to port destination locations.

They have been very supportive in our incubation and product testing stage of CruiseAppy and we look forward to working with them in the coming years as we roll out the App to Cruise Travel Agencies around the globe.”

Magnus Aideborn, CEO of ArrivalGuides said, “We are thrilled to be CruiseAppy’s destination content provider. Not only are they a startup who is destined to succeed with their smart solution, we also share the same strategic thinking of generating engagement pre, during and post-cruise.”
