Newsletter Dated May 26, 2017

Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

I'm sending this week's newsletter out a bit earlier than usual so that I can tell you about some just-released sales from nine popular cruise lines. All of these offers must be booked within the next few days.

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 shore excursions and spa treatments.

Carnival is offering our customers big discounts of up to 83% and exclusive shipboard credits of $50 per cabin. Also pay reduced deposits of $49 per person on many two- to nine-night cruises, $79 per person on Cuba sailings and $149 per person on the following: Alaska sailings, Caribbean departures on the Carnival Vista, Caribbean and Europe cruises on the Carnival Horizon and itineraries of 10 nights or more. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

Royal Caribbean has just reduced rates by an additional $300 per cabin on all sailings after June 24 except departures in China -- save up to 83%. Plus, kids sail free on a variety of cruises departing from September through mid-December. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

Celebrity has just reduced rates on select sailings from October 2017 through April 2018 -- save up to 72%. Plus, book an ocean-view cabin or higher and choose two of the following perks: 1) a shipboard credit of up to $300 per cabin, 2) free gratuities, 3) a free Classic Beverage Package that includes alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages or 4) unlimited Internet. Book a suite and get all four perks. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

Oceania is offering our customers savings of up to 84%. Plus, receive a free upgrade on select last-minute voyages. Book by May 30. See dates and prices.

Cunard is offering our customers discounts of up to 60%, free gratuities and shipboard credits of up to $500 per cabin on select sailings. Book by Tuesday, May 30. See dates and prices.

Regent is offering Vacations To Go customers discounts of up to 85% on select last-minute Alaska sailings -- also receive a free cabin upgrade and pay reduced children's rates on these voyages in the Last Frontier. Regent fares include unlimited shore excursions, gratuities, unlimited beverages including fine wines and premium spirits and unlimited Wi-Fi. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

Azamara is offering Vacations To Go customers savings of up to 76% and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $2,200 per cabin. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

MSC has reduced prices by up to 64% for Vacations To Go. Also enjoy shipboard credits of up to $150 per cabin on last-minute Caribbean departures. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

SeaDream is offering Vacations To Go customers exclusive rates on sailings aboard its twin 112-passenger yachts, with savings of up to 74%. Book by May 31. See dates and prices.

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



Most of the world's top cruise lines have released their itineraries for spring 2018 and beyond. I've listed them, by cruise line and sailing region, below.

While the best markdowns in the cruise industry occur within three months of the departure date, and right up until the day of departure (click our world-famous 90-Day Ticker to view those great deals), there are a few situations where I recommend booking your cruise more than 90 days in advance.

If you are committed to a specific itinerary and departure date -- especially if it's a unique, one-of-a-kind itinerary -- it's best to book early to secure your spot.

If you have your heart set on a specific type of cabin -- for example, a midship balcony suite that provides breathtaking views of the Inside Passage during an Alaskan cruise -- you'll want to book sooner rather than later. The best cabins typically sell out first.

Families that need staterooms that accommodate more than four people, or two adjacent staterooms with a private connecting door, should book early, especially for peak family travel times such as spring break, summer and the winter holidays. Such staterooms are few in number and will be filled far in advance of departure.

And speaking of families, most of the large family groups we book prefer to dine together at the early dinner seating in the ship's main restaurant. If you book early, there's a better chance of getting everyone into that same dinnertime slot.
