Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

We've arranged money-saving offers with Carnival, Norwegian, Seabourn, Cunard and Costa. They provide deep discounts and may also include free amenities or shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used toward onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, like shore excursions and Internet packages. Please note that some rates on our site may not be eligible for free amenities or shipboard credits.

Carnival is offering Vacations To Go customers huge discounts of up to 83%, plus shipboard credits of up to $50 per cabin and reduced deposits from $50 per person on select sailings. Book by January 31. See dates and prices.

Norwegian is offering our customers savings of up to 81%, as well as exclusive shipboard credits of up to $200 per cabin on select departures. Plus, on select sailings choose your free perk(s) based on cabin types booked at eligible rates -- receive one perk for an inside cabin, two perks for an ocean-view cabin or up to five perks for a balcony cabin or higher. Here are the perks: 1) unlimited open bar for two, 2) a specialty dining package that includes up to five meals for two guests at select dining venues, 3) up to 250 minutes of Internet, 4) a shore excursion credit of $50 per cabin, per port (not including embarkation port), or 5) friends and family sail free as third/fourth passengers in the cabin on select departures (port fees and taxes are additional). See dates and prices.

Seabourn has reduced prices by up to 66% for our customers. Plus, get up to 900 minutes of free Wi-Fi for select suites and shipboard credits of up to $1,150 per cabin on applicable voyages. The upfront price of a six-star Seabourn vacation includes open bars, fine wines at lunch and dinner and gratuities. See dates and prices.

Cunard is offering Vacations To Go customers big discounts -- save up to 52%. In addition, receive shipboard credits of up to $700 per cabin and prepaid gratuities for two on select departures. Suites also receive free beverages. Book by January 31. See dates and prices.

Costa has slashed rates by up to 73% for our customers, including discounts on a variety of cruises in the Caribbean, Europe and more. Costa offers Italian-style hospitality, cuisine and entertainment aboard its ships, which sail itineraries in destinations worldwide. See dates and prices.

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.

Our cruises in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe provide a terrific way to explore the continent's many cultures and historic landmarks. Each day of your voyage brings new sights, like magnificent Gothic cathedrals, fabled palaces, Old World cities and picturesque harbor towns laced with cobblestone lanes.

We've secured the deepest discounts available for European cruises -- you can save up to 82% on Mediterranean departures, for example.

Today I'll provide some tips to help anyone heading in that direction find a great cruise at a great price. Click any link below for a complete list of options.

Mediterranean cruise itineraries typically range from seven to 14 days and are most numerous from late April through October, though there are ships in the region year-round. Many sailings visit Spain, France, Italy and Greece.

Below, I've organized our Mediterranean cruises by the most popular departure ports:

Monte Carlo

Due to the cool climate, the most popular time for cruising in Northern Europe is from May through August, but you'll still find departures at other times of the year. Itineraries generally range from seven to 14 days, and most sail in the Baltic Sea to legendary port cities like St. Petersburg, Stockholm and Copenhagen. There also are cruises that concentrate on the British Isles or the Norwegian Fjords.

Here are the most common departure ports for Baltic cruises:


And below is a list of common departure ports for cruises of the British Isles:

Paris (Le Havre)

Several cruise lines offer European itineraries with overnight port calls in such destinations as Venice, Barcelona and Edinburgh. Below is a list of popular cities -- click any city to see itineraries that feature overnight stays there.

Florence / Pisa (Livorno)
Monte Carlo
Palma de Mallorca

Finally, many of our customers like to extend their European vacation with a pre- or post-cruise hotel stay and city tour. Pre-cruise stays are especially popular because this gives you time to rest up after a long flight. Our travel counselors can arrange a hotel stay and tour for you in any city, for as many days as you wish.

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:

Age 55+ Rates
EMT Discounts
Firefighter Discounts
Grand Voyages
Hosted Singles Cruises
Interline Rates
Military Rates (U.S. and Canadian)
Past Passenger Rates
Police Discounts
Teachers' Rates
Travelers with Special Needs

Discount programs like these can be issued or withdrawn at any time by the cruise line, and are not normally combinable with one another. Always tell your Vacations To Go cruise counselor if you qualify for a military or interline discount, are a past passenger of the line you are calling about, or if anyone in the cabin will be 55+, so that he or she can make sure to check for any additional discounts to which you may be entitled.
