Cunard Line (Carnival Corporation-owned subsidiary) partnered with the travel technology company ‘Cool Cousin’ to provide cruisers with customized recommendations from locals in each call port visited by Cunard cruise ships.
The 200 destination guides can be easily downloaded 15 days before departure, perfect for passengers keen to start planning and maximize shore experience.
‘Cool Cousin’ staff are locals making quality recommendations on what to do and also offering suggestions on the cruise port's best dining venues, city landmarks and special destinations in the vicinity. Art enthusiasts have the opportunity to explore little-known galleries, while fashionistas can discover hidden boutiques and coffee lovers can sample unique beans in local cafes.
Printed versions of the guides are to be available for passengers once on board, with the service being rolled out across the entire fleet between January-July 2020.
