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.

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I was suffering all the classic symptoms of Cruise Withdrawal, as it's been more than 510 days since I've been at sea. While I've had some fantastic travel adventures over the last year and a half, none of them have been on a cruise ship.

I heard from many of you who were -- forgive the pun -- in the same boat:
  • "I know the feeling. We are now at 180 days and it is time to make plans for another cruise. One of my therapies, when landlocked, is to use my vacation photos as screen savers -- Alaska in the summer, Caribbean in the winter."
  • "Cruising is in our blood, and we cannot think of any other type of vacation that offers more for our money."
  • "I am not on a cruise ship right now, but I am looking at a collage of photos from our last cruise -- two years ago! One of my favorite memories of that cruise is coming into port in New York City at sunrise, sitting on our balcony in our pajamas."
  • "I returned from sea on July 21 and am already experiencing these symptoms."
