Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Here are some great money-saving offers that we've negotiated with Celebrity, Carnival, Cunard and Crystal. 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, such as shore excursions and spa treatments.

Celebrity is offering our customers big discounts of up to 77%. Also enjoy exclusive shipboard credits of up to $175 per cabin on select last-minute Caribbean voyages this year. Book an ocean-view cabin or higher on sailings in 2017 and choose one of the following perks: 1) an additional 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. See dates and prices.

Carnival has slashed prices for Vacations To Go on a variety of sailings -- save up to 82%. Past guests may see better rates on select sailings. See dates and prices.

Cunard is offering our customers exclusive shipboard credits of up to $860 per cabin on nearly all sailings. In addition, on select departures receive free gratuities and pay a reduced deposit of $150 per person, plus free upgrades within select categories. Past guests may see discounted rates on certain sailings. Book by October 7. See dates and prices.

Crystal has reduced fares exclusively for Vacations To Go on certain last-minute sailings, with additional discounts of up to $1,000 off already reduced rates. Save up to 70%. Also receive shipboard credits of up to $2,000 per cabin. Book by October 7. Your upfront Crystal fare includes gratuities, fine wines, Champagne, premium spirits and nonalcoholic beverages. See dates and prices.

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

Our FastDeals have a new look! Every FastDeal at now displays ship statistics, deck plans and cabin descriptions, along with photos of public areas, restaurants and accommodations. You'll also find a list of onboard dining venues, their hours and any applicable surcharges.

We've added information and prices for onboard Wi-Fi plans, as well as a guide to the ship's facilities, services and amenities for travelers with special needs, where offered. There are photos of the ports, and weather data for the destinations, too.

Here are a few samples from our 90-Day Ticker, the industry's only comprehensive list of last-minute markdowns. Click any link to check out the new features.

The six-star Crystal Serenity completed its 32-night voyage along the Northwest Passage this month, a groundbreaking journey through the Arctic from Anchorage to New York. The 1,080-passenger vessel was the first large luxury ship to sail the route.

More than three years in the planning, the itinerary covered nearly 7,300 nautical miles and navigated the remote, sparsely populated terrain of Canada's Northwest Territories. Amid stunning landscapes of glaciers and fjords, guests spotted polar bears and whales and visited small Inuit communities.

Crystal donated to local causes in the ports of call, and it also brought school supplies and set up "community visits" where guests could meet the residents and purchase locally made arts and crafts. Adventures off the ship -- like hikes, kayaking trips and explorations by Zodiac -- were aided by local Inuit guides who worked with the onboard expedition team.

The ship was accompanied during its northernmost leg by the RRS Ernest Shackleton, which served as a first response vessel for potential emergencies and also provided ice-breaking capabilities and two helicopters for special excursions. The Crystal Serenity, outfitted with ice navigation equipment, carried two Canadian ice pilots.

The Crystal Serenity will return to the Northwest Passage next year, departing from Anchorage on August 15. Click here for details.

Starting in November, Celebrity will participate in Dine Aware, a program for the food and beverage industry that's designed to improve communication about food allergies and intolerance. It's the first cruise line to take part in Dine Aware, with the hope that it will improve the onboard dining experience for guests with special dietary needs.

Here's a list of specialty cruises, discounts and resources we offer. Some are available only to certain types of travelers, and others are available to all Vacations To Go customers. Click the links below for more information:
