Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

We've arranged some fantastic offers with Celebrity, Norwegian, Azamara and Cruise & Maritime Voyages. Below you'll find our deep discounts as well as free shipboard credits, which can be used toward the purchase of items not included in the upfront cost of your cruise, like shore excursions or souvenir pictures from the ship's photo gallery.

Celebrity is offering our customers big discounts, with newly reduced rates -- save up to 81% -- and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $200 per cabin on last-minute Caribbean cruises and other departures. Plus, book an ocean-view or balcony cabin on select sailings and choose one of the following perks: 1) an additional shipboard credit of up to $300 per cabin, 2) free gratuities, 3) a free beverage package including alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages or 4) unlimited Internet. Suites get all four perks. See dates and prices.

Azamara is offering our customers discounts of up to 79% and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $3,250 per cabin. This line is known for scheduling longer stays and more overnights in port so that guests can experience more of the destination. Rates include gratuities, drinks and, on most cruises, a nighttime shore excursion called "AzAmazing Evening." Book by June 30. See dates and prices. 

Cruise & Maritime Voyages, which offers a broad selection of itineraries in the British Isles and Europe, is offering our customers savings of up to 77% and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $3,000 per cabin across a variety of cruises. See dates and prices.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. announced that it will pay $1 billion to acquire a 66.7% stake in Silversea Cruises. The partnership adds a luxury and expedition cruising brand to the company's portfolio, which also includes the contemporary Royal Caribbean line, premium Celebrity Cruises and the deluxe boutique ships of Azamara Club Cruises.

"Cruising today has become mainstream. It's no longer a niche product, and it is more important than ever that we have offerings suited for every type of traveler," said RCCL chairman and CEO Richard Fain in a joint press conference call last week with Silversea chairman Manfredi Lefebvre D'Ovidio, whose father founded that line in 1994.



Luxury line Crystal Cruises has released its 2020 itineraries. Most voyages feature overnight stays in cities like Hong Kong, Sydney and Livorno, a gateway to Florence and the Chianti wine region. The collection includes a few maiden calls for Crystal, such as lush Pohnpei Island in Micronesia and Alghero on the Italian island of Sardinia.

Crystal is known for its beautifully appointed ships. The 980-guest Crystal Serenity and 848-guest Crystal Symphony sail worldwide and have multiple dining venues, spas and enrichment programs that bring diplomats, historians, chefs and others on board. Computer University@Sea schedules lessons in digital video editing and Web page design, while the Creative Learning Institute presents classes led by specialists in their fields, like tai chi with a martial arts master.

The 62-passenger yacht Crystal Esprit sails in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Seychelles and Middle East. Guests can try out the two-passenger submarine, water skis, Jet Skis and snorkeling equipment. Two complimentary excursions are provided in many ports.

Crystal is offering our customers exclusive pricing on select last-minute departures -- save up to 70%. Also receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $2,575 per cabin. Kids age 17 and under sail free on select dates. The upfront fare includes gratuities, fine wines, Champagne, premium spirits and nonalcoholic beverages. Book by June 30. See dates and prices.

The intimate ships of Crystal River Cruises carry 110 or 160 passengers and navigate the Danube, Rhine and other European rivers. Our customers can save an additional $800 to $1,800 per couple off select departures. See dates and prices.



Celebrity has revamped its onboard fitness program to keep up with the latest wellness trends. Collaborating with its onboard spa partner, Canyon Ranch, the line introduces 20 new classes and seminars on ships this month. Examples include "Tabata Impact," a high-intensity interval workout that originated in Japan; "Pilates to the Beat," which choreographs mat exercises to upbeat pop songs; and "Happy Back Yoga," demonstrations of postures and breathing techniques that help maintain a healthy back.
