Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Some cruise lines offer additional discounts for Vacations To Go customers who live in certain states or provinces (regional discounts), customers who are 55 or older, airline employees, police, firefighters, EMTs, teachers, active and retired military personnel and cruise past passengers.

Vacations To Go offers a feature, unique in the cruise industry, that allows us to show you every special discount for which you are eligible, whenever you browse our site. These special rates don't apply to every sailing, but when they are in effect, they are the lowest available.

If you have not recently updated your Vacations To Go Account to make sure you see the biggest discounts for which you are eligible, please click here to do so now. It will take only a moment.

This week, we've arranged the following money-saving offers with Holland America, Disney, Silversea, Azamara and MSC. The offers include shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used toward onboard purchases not covered in your cruise fare, such as shore excursions and spa treatments.

Holland America is offering our customers savings of up to 79%. In addition, all 2015 Alaska cruises and cruise tours qualify for shipboard credits of up to $500 per cabin. Book balcony cabins or suites on select Caribbean voyages and receive a free beverage package that includes alcoholic drinks. Past guests may see better rates on select sailings. Click here for dates and prices.

Vacations To Go is offering customers shipboard credits of up to $100 per stateroom on select Disney Cruise Line sailings. The whole family will enjoy Disney-themed musicals and fireworks under the stars -- and, adults can escape to venues just for them while kids play in immersive clubs. If you've not started planning your 2015 vacation, now's the time with 50% off the required deposit for new bookings made by February 15 -- click here for offer details.

Silversea is offering our customers free WiFi plus a selection of free shore excursions in each port on 2015 European cruises. Click here for dates and prices.

If you're thinking of taking a cruise and traveling solo, you probably already know that cruise lines charge an extra fee for an individual booking a cabin intended for two. Typically, the cruise line starts with the per-person rate based on double occupancy and adds 50% to 100% to the price for a single traveler -- the dreaded single supplement.

The good news? Vacations To Go has found or negotiated low or no single supplements on hundreds of prime cruise departures. These great solo deals are updated daily and listed on our site. Click here to see our Singles Discounts ticker now.

Cruise lines have been working for years to accommodate passengers with disabilities, and 115 of the world's best cruise ships are now accessible to some extent.

Eight years ago, Vacations To Go filled a void in the travel industry with the creation of a department dedicated to assisting travelers with disabilities. We developed the first comprehensive, ship-by-ship guide to facilities, services and amenities for travelers with special needs, with search tools that not only reveal the ships that meet these needs but return great bargains as well.

There are ships with TTY phones and vibrating alarm clocks for guests who are hard of hearing or deaf; menus and daily activity lists in large print for people who have low vision; roll-in showers, push-button doors and pool access for travelers who use wheelchairs or scooters; and many other features to make cruising accessible. There are services that will deliver oxygen tanks or wheelchairs or scooters to a ship on the day of departure, and retrieve them
For more information, click here to visit the section of our site devoted to travelers with special needs.

Our Special Needs department is open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Central Standard Time. Be sure to tell your cruise counselor about all your special needs prior to booking so that he or she can determine if they can be met.
