Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

A growing number of countries around the world are reaching agreements with cruise lines that will allow cruise ships to resume sailing in the near future with the requirement that all passengers and crew must show proof of vaccination.

I mentioned previously that Royal Caribbean will launch seven-night sailings from Cyprus to the Greek Islands beginning July 10. These sailings are now bookable and join the line's departures from Nassau and Bermuda that are also open for sale.

Norwegian just announced that it will begin seven-night sailings from Athens to the Greek Islands on July 25 and from Montego Bay and Punta Cana to Caribbean destinations on August 7 and 15, respectively.

Viking also released new sailings from Bermuda starting June 15 and from Reykjavik in Iceland starting June 26.

Celebrity will begin sailing from St. Maarten in the Caribbean on June 5 and from Athens to the Greek Islands on June 19.

Crystal will sail from Nassau or Bimini in the Bahamas starting July 3.

To see a list of newly announced 2021 sailings that will depart from ports outside the U.S., with vaccinations required, click any line below.

Celebrity (vaccinations required for passengers 18 and older)

Crystal (vaccinations required for all passengers)

Norwegian (vaccinations required for all passengers)

Royal Caribbean (vaccinations required for passengers 18 and older)

Viking (vaccinations required for all passengers)

Seabourn sailings from Athens to the Greek Islands starting July 3 will be available to book April 12, and we'll provide a link to these cruises next week. Vaccinations will be required for all passengers.

Also, Windstar has said that it will resume sailing June 19 from ports in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean and vaccinations will be required for all guests. To see a list of Windstar's currently scheduled sailings, click here.

In the U.S., the CDC continues to drag its feet on setting a firm date for when cruise ships can sail from U.S. ports, or under what conditions. A growing number of groups and governments, from the Cruise Line International Association to the states of Florida and Alaska, want cruise lines to be able to sail from U.S. ports starting this summer. Millions of Americans and Canadians are ready to embark as soon as they are allowed.

American Cruise Lines and American Queen Steamboat Company are cruising U.S. rivers and coastal areas now with ships that carry fewer than 250 total passengers and crew -- the CDC's conditional sailing order applies only to vessels above this capacity threshold. Click either link for a list of sailings.

American Cruise Lines (vaccinations required for all passengers only on sailings before May 1)

American Queen Steamboat Company (vaccinations required for all passengers only on sailings after July 1)

I'll continue to bring you all the latest travel developments in this newsletter.

This week, we've arranged money-saving offers with six different cruise lines, including deep discounts and 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.

Celebrity has slashed rates by up to 87%. Plus, get shipboard credits of up to $850 per cabin and all of the following additional perks on select sailings: 1) prepaid gratuities for two, 2) a free Classic beverage package, and 3) unlimited Internet access for two. See dates and prices.

Hotels and resorts are great alternatives for customers looking for a tropical getaway.

To make it easier for travelers to take the required Covid-19 test before returning to the U.S., a wide selection of all-inclusive resort companies in Mexico have arranged for tests to be administered to guests, at no charge, at the hotel. Many companies are even covering the cost of quarantining at the hotel (including accommodations, meals and nonalcoholic beverages) if a guest tests positive. For more information about the CDC's testing requirement, click here.
