Explore Destinations by Celebrity Cruises introduces consumers’ to cruise tour details and itineraries. This voice skill is specifically designed to cater to eager cruise goers as well as appeal to all travel enthusiasts. The standout feature of this voice app is that it allows users the opportunity to explore over 300 destinations in 79 countries. Though there are a handful of cruise planner voice skills, Explore Destinations tries to take it up a notch by focusing not just on the cruise itineraries but also on providing personalized options and exciting routes across select continents.

To improve the experience of existing and prospective customers, the voice skill offers an engaging conversation to help its users learn about what to do in the event of planning a cruise, how to pack, the best time to visit, along with updates on the best cruise ports in Alaska, Caribbean, and Europe. Explore Destinations aims to make it easy for travelers to get their personalized shore excursions by offering cruise tips, vacation ideas, and more. There is also the provision for users to grant access to receive more details on any of the checklist items via email. To know of destinations not offered via this voice skill, users are carefully guided to their website where they can explore the best deals of vacation packages with culinary adventures by getting in touch with Celebrity Cruises. This voice skill thus makes it easy to choose the next cruise destination and begin planning with a clear-cut direction to explore an awe-inspiring journey of one’s lifetime. All the more, the conversation is efficiently guided thereby leaving not much room for disappointment. To add to it, the voice app also supports a robust “Help” voice command that helps the user to navigate the skill with ease. Well, that being said, there seem to be a few downsides that could let down the user at times. The more prominent letdown being, the details that are offered via this voice app cover select locations or continents though the chance to travel to over 300 destinations is one of their major highlights. Another one being the skill fails to offer a delightful welcome experience to its returning users. Moreover, the absence of the “repeat” option affects the beneficial aspect of the skill.

The VOGO Voice team scores this skill 4.6 out of 5 stars based on our rating system. Yet, you’ll have to try for yourself and see if it offers a personalized cruising experience. For anyone who is a fan of cruising or would love to plan their next cruise vacation would benefit the most from what this skill has to offer.
