Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

This week, let's look at some terrific offers we've negotiated with Norwegian, Carnival, Oceania, Regent and Disney. These offers feature shipboard credits, which can be used toward the purchase of just about anything not included in the upfront cost of your cruise, like spa treatments and shore excursions.

Norwegian is offering Vacations To Go customers big discounts (save up to 84%), exclusive new rates and shipboard credits on a variety of voyages in Europe and Hawaii. And, on these itineraries and most others, customers can choose one of the following free perks when booking ocean-view, balcony or suite accommodations: 1) a shipboard credit of up to $200 per cabin, 2) free prepaid gratuities, 3) the Ultimate Beverage Package (valued at $54 per person, per day) or 4) the Ultimate Dining Package (includes unlimited dining at most specialty restaurants). Click here for dates and prices.

Carnival is offering our customers fantastic savings, with rates marked down by up to 82%. Past guests may see discounted rates on select sailings. Click here for dates and prices.

Oceania is offering our customers discounts of up to 76% and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $2,425 per cabin on applicable departures in Alaska, the Baltic, the Mediterranean and other regions. Click here for dates and prices.

Regent is offering Vacations To Go customers two exclusive offers:

1) Get a free upgrade from a cabin at the starting price to a Concierge Suite, or book a Concierge Suite and get a free upgrade to a more spacious Penthouse Suite as well as free business-class airfare and a free hotel night. Both upgrade offers also come with a shipboard credit of up to $700 per cabin. This applies to three departures: May 27 and June 4 on the Seven Seas Mariner and July 6 on the Seven Seas Voyager.

Book a cabin at the starting price for the May 3 Seven Seas Voyager departure and get a free upgrade to a Penthouse Suite, free business-class air, free hotel night and $1,100 shipboard credit.

2) Book any other Regent voyage and save up to 82%, plus enjoy a new, exclusive shipboard credit of up to $1,250 per cabin. Click here for dates and prices.

Regent passengers also receive free unlimited shore excursions, free prepaid gratuities, free unlimited beverages including fine wines and premium spirits and, on select sailings, free unlimited Internet (valued at $30 a day).

And finally, Vacations To Go is offering customers shipboard credits of up to $100 per stateroom on select Disney Cruise Line voyages. There's something on board for everyone in your family, such as exciting nighttime shows and sophisticated lounges for adults, unique children's programs for young kids and special hangouts for teens. Escape this summer on the Disney Fantasy with a 7-night cruise to the pristine beaches of the Caribbean, with a stop at Disney's private island -- these itineraries are included in this offer. Click here for a full list of dates and prices.

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

Several cruise lines offer theme cruises that focus on special interests or hobbies. You can see a complete list of theme cruises on our website by clicking here. For a list of theme cruise departures by type, click any link below.

Food & Wine cruises can explore regional cuisine in the destinations visited, such as these Culinary & Wine Delights of Spain and France departures with Windstar. Aboard Silversea, pick up some cooking skills during Relais & Chateaux L'Ecole des Chefs trips, or enjoy lectures and tastings on its Wine Series voyages.

Regent indulges in a chocolate-themed sailing this summer. Nearly all Celebrity departures feature Top Chef at Sea activities, and for one special Caribbean cruise, the line brings six culinary contestants from the hit TV show on board for the Top Chef Signature Sailing.

History & Culture cruises can feature lectures by historians and authors and visits to important historic sites. Panels of ambassadors, professors, foreign correspondents and other world affairs experts debate current events on Ocean Views departures with Crystal. Passengers can engage with a wide range of experts during Q&A sessions on Smithsonian Collection sailings with Regent.

Hobby & Sports cruises include golf, ballroom dancing and bridge departures. We offer sail and dive voyages with Paul Gauguin Cruises in French Polynesia, featuring ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau. Holland America schedules Dancing With the Stars cruises, with lessons and meet-and-greets with dance pros from the show. Receive access to two days of Formula One time trials and racing during a 2016 Monaco Grand Prix cruise with Windstar.

Music cruises will appeal to lovers of live music. The lineup includes the Carnival LIVE Concert Series on Carnival, featuring such artists as Smokey Robinson, Rascal Flatts and Styx. You can mingle with fellow aficionados on jazz cruises aboard Cunard.

Theater & the Arts trips celebrate art, magic, movies and more. These include Film & Theatre Festival sailings from Crystal and ¿Qué Bolá? Magic departures featuring performances of illusion and comedy aboard Paul Gauguin Cruises.

Special Events cruises can be centered around a particular celebration, historic occasion, sporting event or celebrity guest. Commemorate the Lusitania on the 100th anniversary of its sinking with Cunard, attend the British Open while sailing with Celebrity or take part in the Star Wars Day at Sea offered on several Disney departures, with Star Wars-themed youth activities and screenings of the films.

Some theme cruises will appeal particularly to families traveling with children. DreamWorks departures on Royal Caribbean bring aboard characters from "Shrek," "Madagascar," "Kung Fu Panda" and other DreamWorks Animation films. On Nickelodeon at Sea voyages with Norwegian, young cruisers can play interactive poolside games with Team Nick, sing and dance at Dora's Music Party and create Nick-themed crafts. On Carnival ships, Seuss at Sea brings the whimsical world of the Cat in the Hat to the line's youth programs, dining and entertainment, while Spin U offers a DJ school at sea to teens.

Lastly, Vacations To Go offers cruises specially designed for solo travelers. On our Singles Cruises, we provide our own onboard hosts to organize exclusive cocktail parties, mixers, games, group excursions, single-mingle dining and more. Some of these are themed, with Halloween, New Year's Eve and Mardi Gras sailings.
