Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Today, I'm pleased to present these terrific deals from Royal Caribbean, Princess, Crystal, Windstar and Pullmantur. They include shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used toward onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, like boutique purchases and spa treatments.

Royal Caribbean is offering Vacations To Go customers huge discounts of up to 83%, shipboard credits of up to $600 per cabin and 50% reduced deposits. Book by August 29. See dates and prices.

Princess is offering our customers discounts of up to 70% on a variety of cruises. In addition, book a balcony cabin or higher on most departures from summer 2017 through spring 2018 and receive a free all-inclusive beverage package for two and a free unlimited soda package for the third and fourth passengers in the cabin. Past guests may see better rates on select sailings. Book by August 31. See dates and prices.

Crystal is offering our customers discounts of up to 72% and shipboard credits of up to $2,000 per cabin on most voyages. On select sailings, choose one of the following per cabin: 1) an additional discount of up to $800, 2) an air credit of up to $1,000 or an additional shipboard credit of up to $1,200. Book by August 31. Your upfront Crystal fare includes gratuities, fine wines, Champagne, premium spirits and nonalcoholic beverages. See dates and prices.

Windstar is offering our customers exclusive rates -- save up to 84% off cruises aboard its masted sailing ships and power yachts, which provide casually elegant atmospheres. Book by September 2. All Windstar vacations include a complimentary onshore private event: Have lunch at a Sicilian winery or attend a beach party in Tahiti, for example. See dates and prices.

Pullmantur, which caters to Spanish-speaking vacationers, is providing some big discounts to Vacations To Go customers -- save up to 80%. Drinks now are included in the upfront rate (excluding Brazil itineraries). Kids age 16 and under cruise free on select sailings. See dates and prices.

As always, these offers are for new bookings only and subject to availability. Restrictions may apply.

Eight ships from six different cruise lines currently are scheduled to embark on their maiden voyages next year. As is always the case when new ships hit the market, all of this new inventory will ensure a continuing supply of deep discounts -- on virtually all ships -- for Vacations To Go customers, especially those who can wait to book within 90 days of departure.

Click here to go straight to a list of these upcoming ships and their inaugural voyages. Or, read on for a few details about each vessel and links to more information, departure dates and discounts.

If you are interested in being among the first passengers to sail on any of these ships, I recommend calling us as soon as possible. The early sailings of any new-build generally are in very high demand.

Seabourn Encore (604 passengers) -- A marina at the stern of this 6-star ship from Seabourn will provide complimentary kayaks, pedal boats and windsurfers, while The Retreat, a canopy-shaded area on Deck 12, will house 15 private cabanas with beverage-stocked refrigerators. Dining options will include The Grill by Thomas Keller, the culinary force behind three Michelin-starred restaurants.

The Seabourn Encore makes its official debut on January 7, 2017, but pre-inaugural sailings are scheduled for December 2016. For ship info, click here. For dates and prices, click here.

Viking Sky and Viking Sun (930 passengers) -- These 5.5-star sister ships from Viking Cruises will sport a modern Scandinavian design. Onboard attractions include a glass-backed pool cantilevered off the stern and a Nordic-inspired spa with a sauna and "snow grotto," where snowflakes drift down from the ceiling through chilled air. A theater will host enrichment lectures and movies inspired by the sailing destination.

In between excursions ashore with expert naturalists to view giant tortoises, sea lions and other animals, passengers can take advantage of the Xperience's features, like stylish ocean-view staterooms, dinner under the stars and a lounge bar that hosts movies and daily talks about the islands.

Silver Muse (596 passengers) -- The newest boutique ship in the Silversea fleet, the 6-star Silver Muse will have more large, higher-end suites than its sister ships; it also will boast more connecting staterooms and new two-bedroom Silver Suites. The ship's designers have made the most of its outdoor spaces, adding open-air restaurants and lounge areas. The eight dining venues include Hot Rocks, where guests grill seafood and meat on a heated volcanic rock plate at the table.

MSC Meraviglia (4,500 passengers) -- "Meraviglia" means "wonder," and MSC hopes to amaze passengers aboard this 4-star ship.
