Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

We had hoped to share exciting news this week about the first cruises to receive approval to depart from U.S. ports, but the last remaining details have not been resolved with the CDC so that announcement will be slightly delayed.

Many ships are already approved to sail from a variety of European and Caribbean countries, and from the Bahamas, Bermuda and the Galapagos Islands, starting in June. Viking just released additional sailings around Iceland (their first sailings in Iceland sold out within hours) along with new cruises that will depart from Malta and visit the Greek Islands or Croatia and Montenegro. Announcements of new sailings have been coming almost weekly.

Currently, only cruise ships that agree to require passengers and crew to be vaccinated for Covid-19 have been approved to resume sailing. You can browse all of these departures by clicking Vaccine-Required Cruises, our unique tool that provides an up-to-date listing of cruises that are already cleared to operate.

We will continue to bring you the latest updates in this newsletter.

This week, we've arranged money-saving offers with nine 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.

Silversea has reduced rates by up to 83%, plus on select sailings receive shipboard credits of up to $300 per cabin. Your Silversea fare includes onboard gratuities, butler service, unlimited internet and complimentary beverages, including wine and spirits. See dates and prices.

Resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic are great options for customers looking for a tropical getaway.

Since the CDC requires travelers to present a negative Covid-19 test before returning to the U.S., a wide selection of all-inclusive resort companies 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.

Below is a list of popular resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic that are offering these helpful services. Click any link for more information, our fast and friendly travel counselors are standing by to assist.
