Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

On January 15, the CDC lifted the Conditional Sail Order (CSO) and the cruise industry officially transitioned to a new, voluntary health and safety program.

First announced in October of 2020, the CSO provided a phased approach for the safe resumption of cruising in U.S. waters. In late June of last year, more than a year after the industry completely shut down, Celebrity Cruises' Celebrity Edge became the first cruise ship to sail in U.S. waters with paying customers. Since that time, millions of people have cruised and the vast majority of cruise ships are back in the water.

The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the world's largest cruise industry trade association, had this to say: "Cruising has successfully resumed in the United States, with leading public health measures that have enabled our ocean-going cruise line members to effectively mitigate the risk of COVID-19 amongst cruise passengers, crewmembers and destinations."



In last week's newsletter, I stated that the Omicron variant of Covid had "originated" in South Africa. I'd like to thank several of my South African readers who wrote to point out that the variant was first identified there but that it has not been established in which country the variant originated.

Omicron spiked beginning in late November in South Africa, with cases peaking in mid-December and then plunging in short order. The country was not only the first to discover Omicron, it was the first to report that Omicron was generally milder and more contagious than prior strains of Covid.



Now I'd like to tell you about money-saving offers we've arranged with 11 different cruise lines. In addition to deep discounts, these offers may include free amenities or shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and may be used toward onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, like shore excursions and internet packages.
