The Globus family of brands has launched two new mobile apps for travellers, with the goal of enhancing the travel experience on Cosmos and Avalon Waterways itineraries.
Dubbed AvalonGo and CosmosGo, both apps are free of charge and provide insider info on sightseeing, shopping, dining and getting around the host destination. The Cosmos app has been available since June and the Avalon app will be launched today (Aug. 29).
Each app is available for all itineraries except Avalon cruises in Southeast Asia and India and four Cosmos itineraries to remote areas.
“With Cosmos we build in a lot of free time allowing clients to explore on their own, so this was a natural evolution of the services we provide,” said Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands.
Avalon’s 2019 cruises
In 2019, Avalon is tweaking several European itineraries to allow more time in port and more overnight stops, the perfect time to sample nightlife ashore in a legendary European city such as Paris or Budapest, the cruise line said, adding that the app features ideas for maximizing time ashore.
