CPN Launches Onshore Travel Planner App for Japanese Ports

Cruise Port Navigation (CPN), a travel services company based in Los Angeles, California and Odawara, Japan, has launched a mobile app that allows cruise passengers to plan their onshore activities while their ship is at port.

 The Cruise Port Navigator app, described by CPN as a “virtual tour guide” for cruisers, features a guide to Japan and overview of major Japanese cruise ports.

The app is currently only available on Apple with an Android version expected to be launched in 2017.

The app works with GPS to provide information about a variety of points of interest such as cultural and historical sites, local restaurants, duty-free shopping areas, recreational facilities, and more.

The places are identified in both English and Japanese including Romanized pronunciation to facilitate independent onshore touring.

“The Cruise Port Navigator app is a very cost-effective alternative to organized group tours,” said Heather Hopkins Clement, CPN’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “The port planners enable the cruiser to do exactly what he or she wishes to do while in port. The historical and cultural overviews provide the context that will ensure a personal, authentic, and enjoyable experience.”

CPN plans to expand its app to include more ports in Japan and to offer the app in other languages.
