Cruises restarting worldwide!

The global cruise industry is reopening as the U.S. and many other countries are going to allow cruise ships to visit as long as passengers and crew have been vaccinated.

Itineraries that have already been approved include sailings visiting Alaska, Bahamas, Bermuda, Caribbean, Europe, Galapagos, Hawaii, Mexico & Central America, Northern Europe, Pacific U.S. and Tahiti.

Vacations To Go has developed a new tool -- the only one of its kind in the travel industry -- that displays all the Vaccine-Required Cruises that have been approved to operate. The number of sailings will continue to grow and you can click the link above or on the home page of VacationsToGo.com for the latest list.

Every cruise on this list is available for booking now and several departures sold out within hours of listing.

In other news, at least nine ships have just been approved by the CDC to operate “test cruises” to determine whether masking and distancing and other protocols would be sufficient to enable cruises for passengers who have NOT been vaccinated. The test cruises will occur in June, July and August and we are hopeful that the CDC will grant approval for these ships to return to operation soon after the tests are completed. We will be the first to announce (here and in our newsletter) when cruises that do not require a vaccine go on sale and what the safety protocols will be.

And finally, if you’re holding a future cruise credit (FCC) from a previous cancellation, you can use it on any sailing offered by Vacations To Go (on the same cruise line that issued the FCC) regardless of whether the original cruise was booked through Vacations To Go.

Below are links to each cruise line's policy covering FCCs and refunds on cancelled sailings and relaxed cancellation terms for bookings on future sailings.
