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.

Here are some great money-saving offers that we've negotiated with Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Regent and Azamara. They include shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used toward onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, such as shore excursions and spa treatments.

Royal Caribbean is offering Vacations To Go customers deep discounts -- save up to 84%. In addition, receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $200 per cabin on all 2017 voyages, plus pay a 50% reduced deposit on select sailings. Book by January 31. See dates and prices.

Celebrity is offering our customers big discounts of up to 77%. Also enjoy exclusive shipboard credits of up to $275 per cabin on year-round cruises in the Caribbean and most other departures as well. Book an ocean-view cabin or higher on sailings departing from February 2017 through April 2018 and choose two of the following perks: 1) an additional shipboard credit of up to $300 per cabin, 2) free gratuities, 3) a free Classic Beverage Package that includes alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages or 4) unlimited Internet. Book a suite and get all four perks. Book by January 31. See dates and prices.

Regent has reduced rates by up to 84% for our customers. Also enjoy exclusive onboard credits of up to $750 per cabin. Regent fares include unlimited shore excursions, gratuities, unlimited beverages including fine wines and premium spirits and unlimited Wi-Fi. See dates and prices.

Azamara is offering our customers huge discounts of up to 77% and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $600 per cabin across all voyages. Plus, book an ocean-view cabin or higher on select sailings departing after June 2017 and also receive unlimited Internet access for one device. Book by January 30. Azamara is known for scheduling longer stays and more overnights in port, so that guests can experience more of the destination. Rates include gratuities, drinks and a nighttime shore excursion called "Azamazing Evening." See dates and prices.

As always, these offers are for new bookings only and subject to availability. Restrictions may apply.

The small ships of Viking River Cruises travel the world's most storied rivers, from the Danube and Rhine to the Yangtze and Mekong. You'll dock in the heart of cities and small towns and explore the destination's sights, food and traditions through included shore excursions.

The upfront fare also includes Wi-Fi, all onboard meals and complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks at lunch and dinner.

Viking is offering our customers these fantastic deals, which must be booked by January 31:

The company has gained industrywide attention for its 190-guest Viking Longships, which feature environmentally friendly hybrid engines, solar panels, organic herb gardens and the indoor/outdoor Aquavit Terrace, where passengers can enjoy the views and dine alfresco. Half the staterooms boast full-size balconies.

Viking's shore excursions include the Local Life program, with home-hosted visits and market tours; Working World experiences, such as seeing how Doña Manuela makes bread the traditional way in her Portuguese bakery; and the optional Privileged Access excursions, which introduces guests to private art collections and grand homes.

New cruises to Cuba: Norwegian, Oceania and Royal Caribbean are the latest cruise lines to add Havana to a limited number of tropical itineraries this year.

Oceania's Marina will embark on 10- and 14-night cruises in March that add Havana to a mix of Caribbean ports like Grand Cayman, Costa Maya and Roatan, depending on the itinerary. See dates and prices.
