Listen up: Music of the World app on Spotify
Cruise travelers who want some audio immersion to get in the cruise mood will like the app. To use the app, you need to have a Spotify account to execute the link: http://open.spotify.com/app/world.
I used the app and it does deliver the promise of easily accessing music from around the world. In fact, I was able to get inspired for an upcoming cruise to Greece and Italy by listening to various playlists that were collected for me. What I don’t get though is how a person gets their playlist on the preferred list. That would be really cool to have my favorite songs of a place promoted on the app…
Give it a try. It’s new and fun.
