Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

This week, I'm happy to present three fantastic offers from Royal Caribbean, Disney Cruise Line and Windstar. 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 -- you can use them for spa treatments, shore excursions and purchases in the photo gallery and shops, for example.

Royal Caribbean is offering Vacations To Go customers a limited-time sale that features discounts of up to 65%. Plus, receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $300 per cabin on nearly every cruise and cruise tour from through 2016. Book by Wednesday, August 20. Click here for dates and prices.

Vacations To Go is offering our customers special pricing and shipboard credits of up to $100 per stateroom on select Disney Cruise Line sailings. Start planning your next vacation with great rates on seven-night Disney Magic Caribbean sailings this fall. There's always plenty of entertainment for the whole family on a Disney cruise. During the fall, there's even more fun on "Halloween on the High Seas" sailings that include activities like Mickey's Mouse-querade Party, trick-or-treating, a dance party for the adults and more; these voyages are included in this offer. Click here for a full list of dates and prices.

Windstar is offering our customers exclusive rates on select voyages -- save up to 81%. Book by August 29. Click here for dates and prices.

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

Celebrity has announced a series of Signature Event Sailings that focus on some of the world's most famous events. Scheduled for 2015-2016, these departures are designed to give passengers a more immersive experience, with VIP access and onboard activities and entertainment tailored to the main event.

For example, get a grandstand seat to the lively Samba Parade in Rio de Janeiro, then check out samba shows on board the Celebrity Infinity during the Rio Carnival cruise, departing Buenos Aires on January 31, 2016. Pick up tips from golf pros and tee off on courses in three different locales during the British Open voyage (Celebrity Silhouette, departing Amsterdam on July 15, 2015). Or ring in the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong (Celebrity Millennium, departing Singapore on January 31, 2016).

Other Signature Event Sailings will highlight the Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera (Celebrity Equinox, from Barcelona on May 11, 2015) and the 100th anniversary of Anzac Day (Celebrity Constellation, from Rome on April 22, 2014).

Are you looking for a short but relaxing getaway, something that will take you out of the everyday grind for just a few days? We offer many cruises of three, four or five nights. Here are a few examples.

Crystal is upping the fitness factor on its six-star ships. Starting this fall, guests of the luxury line can train like top athletes on technologically advanced equipment used by Olympic competitors. The equipment by Technogym, official supplier of the Olympic Games and the World Cup, will first be installed on the Crystal Symphony during a $20 million-plus redesign scheduled to start September 9.

In addition, three aft decks will be converted to a multilevel, outdoor "fitness garden" featuring more than a dozen stainless-steel pieces of equipment from Danish company Norwell Outdoor Fitness. Passengers from beginner to advanced levels can make a circuit through the course while taking in soothing sea views.

Active pursuits extend to the line's shore excursion program as well: Earlier this year, Crystal debuted running excursions and increased its bicycle tour options worldwide. You also can sign up for hiking, kayaking and rock-climbing excursions.
