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.

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

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
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.
