Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

I'd like to begin this newsletter by sending our sincerest thoughts, prayers and heartfelt condolences to all the residents of Florida and the Carolinas who were affected by Hurricane Ian. We've had to dig out from a lot of hurricanes in this part of Texas, including Hurricane Harvey five years ago, and we understand the struggle that's in store for the hardest-hit areas. Everyone at Vacations To Go wishes you a speedy recovery.

Next, I'd like to pass along some late-breaking news. Norwegian Cruise Line announced it will remove all COVID-19 testing, masking, and vaccination requirements for all guests--vaccinated and non-vaccinated, a policy change that will better align their policies with those of other global travel organizations, according to the statement.

Note that there are still a few destinations that have some of these requirements in place, and all visiting cruise lines must follow them. Any such requirements are noted at the FastDeal level of affected sailings.

This week, I'd like to show you the latest discounts and special offers we've negotiated with 9 popular cruise lines. The deeply discounted offers below may include free amenities or shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used for onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, like spa treatments and shore excursions.

Princess is offering Vacations To Go customers big discounts -- save up to 74%.

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.

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

The Government of Canada announced the removal of all COVID-19 entry restrictions and testing, quarantine, and isolation requirements for anyone entering Canada. Further, travelers will no longer be required to undergo health checks for travel on air and rail or wear masks on planes and trains.

Canada's restrictions caused a significant slowdown in bookings of cruises that called in Canada, particularly cruises sailing from the U.S. to Alaska on the West coast and between Canada & New England on the East coast.

In order to stimulate demand, cruise lines have been offering some of the best deals on 2023 Alaska cruises that I have ever seen. However, now that all COVID restrictions have been eliminated, I expect the most deeply discounted staterooms to sell out quickly.

To protect from financial loss in the event of an emergency, Vacations To Go strongly recommends the purchase of travel insurance with every cruise. Cruise lines impose penalties for canceling or changing a reservation, up to and including loss of the entire cruise price. Cruise lines are very strict about their cancellation policies and do not make exceptions, even under extreme circumstances.

It also is possible for illness or injury to occur during a cruise, resulting in medical bills from the ship's infirmary and/or the early termination of the trip. Most traditional health insurance policies do not cover cruise passengers traveling abroad.

The Go Plan offered by our preferred independent insurance provider, Generali Global Assistance, covers you for trip cancellation and trip interruption due to a variety of reasons, such as a covered illness, an injury, the death of you or a family member or a traveling companion, delayed flights due to inclement weather and the documented theft of passports or visas.

When you are ready to book a cruise, our cruise counselors will explain the insurance options that are available for your trip and answer any questions you may have.
