Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

For today's newsletter, I'm pleased to present money-saving offers that we've arranged with Royal Caribbean, MSC, Seabourn and Oceania. 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 and Internet packages. Please note that some rates on our site may not be eligible for free amenities or shipboard credits.

Royal Caribbean is offering Vacations To Go customers huge discounts -- save up to 76% -- plus exclusive shipboard credits of up to $300 per cabin on most sailings. Book by December 17. See dates and prices.

MSC has slashed rates by up to 81% on a variety of departures. On select Caribbean cruises, receive exclusive pricing, free drinks and a free Wi-Fi package for up to two devices. See dates and prices.

Seabourn is offering our customers savings of up to 85%, with free upgrades, free Internet and shipboard credits of up to $2,000 per cabin on select sailings. The upfront price of a Seabourn vacation includes open bars, fine wines at lunch and dinner and gratuities. See dates and prices.

Oceania has provided newly reduced, exclusive pricing for Vacations To Go customers -- save up to 81% -- with free upgrades on select cruises. Plus, receive shipboard credits of up to $900 on select departures. Book by December 20. 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.



Save on cruises of 10 nights or more: For those of you who are cruise addicts (like me) and love to spend time at sea, I've compiled a list of our best deals on longer sailings. To see our fantastic discounts on cruises of 10 nights or more departing in 2019, click here.



Hurtigruten, known for its expedition cruises to intriguing and remote destinations, has released its 2020-2021 itineraries. Highlights include the company's biggest selection of Antarctica adventures and multiple voyages in Alaska. With the release of the new departures, Hurtigruten now travels to more than 250 destinations worldwide.

Hurtigruten has these fantastic discounts for our customers.

Save up to 81% off sailings in Canada and New England or Central and South America.

Save up to 44% off cruises to Antarctica, the Arctic or Alaska.

In 2020, Hurtigruten will take passengers deep into the pristine Alaska wilderness on small-ship cruises, traveling the Inside Passage and Gulf of Alaska and calling at less-visited places like the fishing village of Petersburg, called "Little Norway" because it attracted Norwegian settlers and still maintains Scandinavian traditions. Sailings take place aboard the 530-passenger MS Roald Amundsen, Hurtigruten's first hybrid electric-powered ship.

Other highlights of the 2020-2021 collection include the inaugural season of the line's second hybrid-powered ship, the MS Fridtjof Nansen, and an extensive refurbishment of the popular polar vessel MS Fram. Among new onboard spaces will be a Science Center that uses high-tech, interactive equipment.

Hurtigruten is famous for its Norwegian coastal voyages, with daily departures of ships that carry local residents and cargo and international passengers eager to photograph the fjords and explore picturesque towns.

Two cruise lines have debuted their latest ships:

Holland America took delivery of its 15th ocean liner, the Nieuw Statendam, on November 29, and on December 5 the ship started its inaugural voyage from Rome to Fort Lauderdale. It features staterooms designed for families and solo travelers, cooking classes in America's Test Kitchen and wine-making sessions at Blend. The Music Walk is home to B.B. King's Blues Club, the Rolling Stone Rock Room for classic rock hits, Lincoln Center Stage for classical numbers and Billboard Onboard for an interactive music experience with trivia.

The Nieuw Statendam will sail to the Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale on trips of seven to 14 nights through April, then move to Amsterdam for Northern Europe itineraries. Click here for discounted rates.

Celebrity welcomed the Celebrity Edge, its first new ship in six years, to the fleet in a naming ceremony on December 4. The Edge will alternate seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from Fort Lauderdale, and the line organized two official maiden voyages: the first departed December 9, and the second departs December 16.

Among the innovations aboard the Celebrity Edge is the Magic Carpet, a floating platform that can be positioned outside the ship's hull at different decks (serving as an open-air restaurant on Deck 5, for example, or an extension of the pool area on Deck 14). A sister ship, Celebrity Apex, will join the fleet in 2020.

When its inaugural Caribbean season wraps up in April, the ship will reposition to the Mediterranean. To view discounted departures and sailing dates for the Edge, click here.



To protect from financial loss in the event of an emergency, Vacations To Go strongly recommends the purchase of travel insurance with every cruise. Cruise lines impose penalties for canceling or changing a reservation, up to and including loss of the entire cruise price. Cruise lines are very strict about their cancellation policies and do not make exceptions, even under extreme circumstances.   

It also is possible for illness or injury to occur during a cruise, resulting in medical bills from the ship's infirmary and/or the early termination of the trip. Most traditional health insurance policies do not cover cruise passengers traveling abroad.

The Go Plan offered by our preferred independent insurance provider, Generali Global Assistance (formerly CSA Travel Protection), covers you for trip cancellation and trip interruption due to a variety of reasons, such as a covered illness, an injury, the death of you or a family member or a traveling companion, delayed flights due to inclement weather and the documented theft of passports or visas.

When you are ready to book a cruise, our cruise counselors will explain the insurance options that are available for your trip and answer any questions you may have.
