Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Here are several money-saving deals that we've arranged with Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Regent, Cunard and MSC. 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.
Royal Caribbean is offering Vacations To Go customers huge discounts -- save up to 82% -- plus enjoy exclusive shipboard credits of up to $300 per cabin. Kids age 12 and under sail free as third and fourth passengers in the cabin on select sailings through the end of 2018. Book by March 25. See dates and prices.
Carnival has reduced prices by up to 82% on a variety of sailings for our customers. See dates and prices.
Regent is providing discounts of up to 84% for Vacations To Go customers. Also receive shipboard credits of up to $1,200 per cabin. The upfront price of a Regent cruise includes unlimited shore excursions, gratuities, unlimited beverages including fine wines and premium spirits and unlimited Wi-Fi. See dates and prices.
Cunard has reduced fares by up to 73% for our customers. In addition, receive shipboard credits of up to $700 per cabin on most voyages. Book a suite on select departures and receive free drinks and gratuities. Book by March 26. See dates and prices.
MSC is offering our customers exclusive rates -- for savings of up to 71% -- on last-minute cruises to the Caribbean. Also receive shipboard credits of up to $150 per cabin, and kids age 12 and under sail free as third and fourth passengers in the cabin on select departures through the end of the year. See dates and prices.

As always, these offers are for new bookings only and subject to availability. Restrictions may apply. Past guests of some cruise lines may see better rates on select sailings.

Carnival has named Grammy award-winning singer and actress Queen Latifah as the godmother of its newest ship, Carnival Horizon. She'll participate in the official naming ceremony in New York on May 23 at a gala that salutes St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Carnival has raised more than $13 million for St. Jude since partnering with the hospital in 2010.
A few weeks before these festivities, the 3,960-guest vessel will make its maiden voyage on April 2 in the Mediterranean. It will reposition from Barcelona to the Big Apple in early May for Bermuda and Caribbean sailings through the summer; the ship then will move to its new home port of Miami in September. The Carnival Horizon will sport an IMAX theater, a Dr. Seuss-themed waterpark and a broad range of accommodations, from Cloud 9 spa cabins to Family Harbor staterooms designed for up to five occupants. The centerpiece of the ship's atrium will be a 24-foot LED sculpture called "Dreamscape" featuring artwork by St. Jude patients.
Our Carnival Horizon departures are discounted by up to 82%. Click here for departures.  

More new ships are on the horizon:
Viking has signed an agreement with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for six more newbuilds, bringing Viking's oceangoing fleet to 16 ships by 2027. These will be added to four other unnamed ships already on order, with delivery starting in 2021.
The ships will be similar in design to Viking's four existing 930-passenger, all-balcony vessels, which will be joined by the Viking Orion in July and the Viking Jupiter next February.
French line Ponant has ordered two more ships for its Explorers class of upscale expedition vessels carrying 184 passengers each. Due in 2020, these yachts will join Le Laperouse and Le Champlain (making their debuts in June and September of this year) and Le Bougainville and Le Dumont d'Urville (both launching in 2019).  

Oceania will offer free, unlimited internet to passengers in all cabins and suites across its fleet by the end of April. With the line's high-speed Wavenet service, guests can upload and download large files, surf the web and post to social media. For those who want to stream movies, music or videos, the service can be upgraded to Wavenet Prime for $9.99 per day.
Oceania has six deluxe ships that carry either 684 or 1,258 passengers in destinations worldwide. Click here for ships and departures.

Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection is known for providing an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere on its stylish ships. This week, I'm pleased to present a fantastic offer for its sailings in Europe.
Save up to 30% off select departures of Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux, Enchanting Danube, Gems of Northern Italy and more when you book by March 31.
Uniworld's European cruises are a terrific value, as the upfront rate includes all of the following: scheduled airport transfers on arrival and departure days, a choice of shore excursions, shipwide Wi-Fi, all gratuities on board and on shore, all meals on board in several dining venues, unlimited beverages on the ship (local wines, craft beers, spirits, juices, mineral water and more), 24-hour room service, concierge services and in-suite butlers.

Its one-of-a-kind ships feature carefully selected decor -- antiques, custom fabrics and original artworks -- as well as personalized service. Menus showcase farm-to-table cuisine using locally sourced ingredients. "Traveling Lite" menus and vegetarian options also are available. Passengers will find onboard fitness centers and wellness coaches, exercise classes, yoga sessions, the complimentary use of bicycles and Nordic walking sticks. Some ships have heated swimming pools.

Each cruise provides a selection of included shore excursions. They range from guided tours of museums and historic districts to wine and beer tastings to hiking and biking excursions.

Celebrity continues to reveal details about its groundbreaking Celebrity Edge, due in December. This time, it offers a preview of the ship's dining and drinking scene across 29 venues. Among the offerings are brand-new specialty restaurants such as Fine Cut Steakhouse, the Rooftop Garden Grill for barbecue and Raw on 5 for seafood. The Magic Carpet, a large floating platform that can move up and down the side of the ship, will host Dinner on the Edge when it's positioned at its uppermost level.
But the Celebrity Edge takes its culinary creativity to even greater heights during dinner at Le Grand Bistro. Once the lights are dimmed, scenes featuring a tiny animated 3D chef are digitally projected onto the plates and tabletop. Thanks to the projection mapping technology of Skullmapping, which created Le Petit Chef, and Celebrity's partnership with TableMation Studios, diners can watch the little culinary maestro "prepare" each course of the meal right before their eyes.

Royal Caribbean will give its private Bahamian island, CocoCay, a significant makeover. New features will include the Thrill Waterpark -- with 13 slides, a wave pool and a kid-friendly obstacle course pool -- a zipline, an enormous freshwater pool, a floating bar and a helium balloon ride that provides views of the island from 400 feet up. A section called Chill Island will offer beachside dining and bars, daybeds and water sports.
Refurbishments will be rolled out in phases beginning this September, with most of the upgrades scheduled to be completed by spring 2019. The final installment, the upscale Coco Beach Club with overwater cabanas and its own Mediterranean restaurant, will open in November 2019.
