Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

For today's newsletter, we've negotiated money-saving offers with Princess, Holland America, Carnival, Oceania and Crystal. In addition to deep discounts, these offers may 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, spa treatments and items bought in the vessel's boutiques. Please note that some rates on our site may not be eligible for free amenities or shipboard credits.

Princess is offering Vacations To Go customers discounts of up to 66%, including special pricing on select sailings in South America, eastern Canada and New England, the Panama Canal, Europe, the Caribbean and Australia. Plus, get shipboard credits of up to $85 per cabin on select sailings. See dates and prices.

Carnival has reduced rates by up to 82% for our customers on select last-minute cruises through December 2019. Book by September 22. See dates and prices.

Oceania is offering our customers newly reduced pricing on select voyages, for discounts of up to 84%. In addition, receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $900 per cabin on select sailings in 2019 and beyond. Book by September 23. See dates and prices.

Crystal has provided newly reduced rates with huge discounts on select last-minute departures -- save up to 78%. Plus, receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $3,050 per cabin on select voyages. The upfront fare of a luxury Crystal vacation includes gratuities, fine wines, Champagne, premium spirits and nonalcoholic beverages. See dates and prices.

And, your companion cruises for free on many Crystal river cruises, plus save up to an additional $2,000 per couple on select sailings and receive shipboard credits of up to $400 per cabin on a variety of departures. 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.

Twenty-three ships from 16 cruise lines currently are scheduled to embark on their maiden voyages between now and September 2021. All are newbuilds except for one ship that will be refurbished and renamed.

As is always the case when new ships hit the market, all of this new inventory will ensure a continuing supply of deep discounts -- on virtually all ships -- for Vacations To Go customers.

Click here to go straight to a list of these upcoming ships and their inaugural voyages. Or, read on for a few details about each vessel and links to departure dates and discounts.

If you are interested in being among the first passengers to sail on any of these ships, I recommend calling us as soon as possible. The early sailings of any newbuild generally are in very high demand.
