Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Some cruise lines offer additional discounts for Vacations To Go customers who live in certain states or provinces (regional discounts), customers who are 55 or older, airline employees, police, firefighters, EMTs, teachers, active and retired military personnel and cruise past passengers.

Vacations To Go offers a feature, unique in the cruise industry, that allows us to show you every special discount for which you are eligible, whenever you browse our site. These special rates don't apply to every sailing, but when they are in effect, they are the lowest available.

If you have not recently updated your Vacations To Go Account to make sure you see the biggest discounts for which you are eligible, please click here to do so now. It will take only a moment.

Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas has arrived in its new home port of Miami after undergoing a six-week, $120 million makeover. It now boasts a FlowRider surf simulator, a bungee trampoline with a virtual reality option, a glow-in-the-dark laser tag course, the three-story Perfect Storm waterslides and an escape room experience. Joining the onboard food and drinks scene are Jamie's Kitchen from British chef Jamie Oliver, the Playmaker Sports Bar with more than 25 TV screens and the tiki-themed Bamboo Room, a brand-new concept for the line.

These new features add extra appeal to the affordable three- and four-night Bahamas cruises that the Mariner of the Seas sails from Miami, with per-diem prices as low as $57 per person, per night. Click here for dates and rates.  


 
Carnival will return to the port of San Diego after an absence of seven years. The Carnival Miracle will sail cruises to Hawaii, the Mexican Riviera and the Panama Canal for a brief period from December 2019 to February 2020. See our discounts for these voyages, up to 81% off.



Next summer, Holland America will bid farewell to the smallest ship in its fleet, the 835-passenger Prinsendam. It was sold to German cruise line Phoenix Reisen, which will charter the ship back to Holland America for voyages scheduled through July 1, 2019. Built in 1988 as the Royal Viking Sun for now-defunct Royal Viking Line, the ship also sailed for Cunard and Seabourn before joining Holland America in 2002, where it earned a loyal following.



If you're thinking of taking a cruise and traveling solo, you probably already know that cruise lines charge an extra fee for an individual booking a cabin intended for two. Typically, the cruise line starts with the per-person rate based on double occupancy and adds 50% to 100% to the price for a single traveler -- the dreaded single supplement.

The good news? Vacations To Go has found or negotiated low or no single supplements on many prime cruise departures. These great solo deals are updated daily and listed on our site. Click here to see our Singles Discounts ticker now.



Cruise lines have been working for years to accommodate passengers with disabilities, and 175 of the world's best cruise ships are now accessible to some extent. There are options for travelers with limited mobility, people who are hard of hearing or deaf, people who are blind, those with oxygen requirements and those with diabetes and dietary restrictions.

Eleven years ago, Vacations To Go filled a void in the travel industry with the creation of a department dedicated to assisting travelers with disabilities. We developed the first comprehensive, ship-by-ship guide to facilities, services and amenities for travelers with special needs, with search tools that not only reveal the ships that meet these needs but return great bargains as well.

Travelers with limited mobility will find there are ships with fully accessible staterooms and roll-in showers, push-button doors and access to public areas and pools. We can recommend wheelchair and scooter rentals and arrange accessible transfers between the airport and the ship.

There are ships with TTY kits for guests who are hard of hearing or deaf, menus and daily activity lists in large print for people who have low vision and many other features to make cruising accessible.

For more information, click here to visit the section of our site devoted to travelers with special needs.

Our Special Needs department is open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Central Standard Time. Be sure to tell your cruise counselor about all your special needs prior to booking so that he or she can determine if they can be met.



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

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.
