Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Like many Americans, I can trace some of my ancestors to the UK. I still recall the strange sense of deja vu I experienced on my first trip to London, after college graduation. I'm not the mystical type, mind you, but I felt at home somehow in that great city.

That's quite a feat when you're there on the $20-a-day plan -- sleeping on overnight trains to save money, staying in crowded youth hostels and eating street food -- but a connection was made then that has endured, and I realize now that it was that trip that gave me the travel bug that I still have today.

St. Augustine once said that the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Let's turn a page or two this summer.

We've negotiated the following money-saving offers with Princess, Costa, Azamara, Windstar and Cruise & Maritime Voyages. These promotions include shipboard credits -- most are exclusive to Vacations To Go. Shipboard credits are as good as cash on the ship and can be used for onboard purchases not covered in your cruise fare, such as shore excursions and spa treatments.

Princess is offering our customers savings of up to 80%, as well as exclusive shipboard credits of up to $285 per cabin on most departures from now through June and on all 2015 Alaska cruise tours. Click here for dates and prices.

Costa is offering Vacations To Go customers big discounts: Save up to 80%. Plus enjoy exclusive shipboard credits of up to $600 per cabin. Click here for dates and prices.

Azamara is offering our customers exclusive shipboard credits of up to $1,000 per cabin on a variety of sailings, as well as fares reduced by up to 74%. Click here for dates and prices.

Windstar is offering our customers exclusive rates, with savings of up to 77%. In addition, receive a shipboard credit of $200 per cabin on select voyages. Book by May 28. Passengers will find a casually elegant atmosphere aboard Windstar's three masted sailing ships and three recently acquired power yachts (the first, Star Breeze, debuted earlier this month). All Windstar voyages now feature a complimentary onshore "Private Event" that provides a unique introduction to the destination. For example, enjoy lunch at a family-run winery in Sicily or attend a private Champagne reception at Monaco's Grand Casino. Click here for dates and prices.

Cruise & Maritime Voyages is offering Vacations To Go customers big markdowns -- save up to 79% -- as well as an exclusive shipboard credit of up to $800 per cabin on a variety of sailings. This British line offers a classic, traditional cruising experience on four ships that carry 550 to 800 passengers and one with a capacity for just over 1,800 guests. Most voyages depart from English port cities; the company has a wide selection of itineraries in Northern Europe and the British Isles. Click here for dates and prices.

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

Here's a look at news from around the cruise industry...

Royal Caribbean has ordered a fourth Quantum-class ship. The unnamed vessel is slated for a 2019 delivery. It will be a sister ship to the Quantum of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas and the upcoming Ovation of the Sea, due in April 2016.

The Disney Dream is scheduled for a dry-dock refurbishment for most of October. The 4,000-guest Disney Cruises ship will emerge on October 26 with two new interactive youth areas (including one with a Star Wars theme, where kids can help navigate the Millennium Falcon spacecraft and learn lightsaber moves at the Jedi Training Academy), a gelato and candy shop and a no-kids deck area called Satellite Falls.

Cunard kicked off its 175th anniversary celebrations in grand style earlier this month. On May 3, all three ocean liners in the fleet sailed together from Cunard's home port of Southampton, England, with the flagship Queen Mary 2 leading Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria -- a rare sight for spectators who gathered to watch the procession. The ships will reunite on the River Mersey in Liverpool on May 25.
