Holland America has reduced rates by up to 87% for our customers. Plus, get exclusive shipboard credits of up to $750 per cabin, free gratuities for two and a beverage credit of $100 per cabin on a variety of cruises and cruise tours. Book a suite and also get 200 minutes of free Internet. Past guests may see discounted rates on select sailings. Book by June 27. See dates and prices.

Holland America opened the Denali Square dining and entertainment complex on June 6. It's the new hub of the 60-acre McKinley Chalet Resort, at the entrance to Denali National Park, where guests stay on Holland America's Alaska cruise tours. Visitors can dine at the Karstens Public House restaurant, take in a dinner theater show at the Gold Nugget Saloon or watch talented locals at work in the artist-in-residence cabin.

More Holland America news: The line has upgraded suites aboard the Eurodam and Oosterdam, bringing them in line with the style found aboard the new Koningsdam. The rooms sport new, more contemporary furniture and bathrooms with stone countertops and glass tile walls. USB outlets were added to headboards, and an interactive TV system gives access to free on-demand movies. Other ships in the fleet will receive similar renovations in the coming months.

American Queen Steamboat Company, whose elegant and modern paddle wheelers sail the Mississippi River and the Columbia and Snake rivers in the Pacific Northwest, is offering our customers some fantastic savings.

For example, save $1,000 to $1,800 per couple ($500 to $900 per person) off holiday sailings that depart from New Orleans or Memphis.

Holiday cruises stop in towns like St. Francisville and Natchez, where carolers and musicians greet passengers and streets and shops are decked out in yuletide decor. Guests spend a festive evening at Nottoway Plantation -- built in 1859 and said to be the largest surviving antebellum plantation in the South -- with music, dancing and a private dinner, followed by the lighting of traditional Cajun bonfires on the river levee.

Or, save $800 to $1,800 per couple ($400 to $900 per person) off many other departures between now and the end of the year when you book certain cabin categories. Book and pay in full by June 30.

Every cruise with American Queen Steamboat Company includes complimentary wine and beer at dinner and bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the voyage.

Norwegian has big upgrades planned for its private Bahamian island, Great Stirrup Cay. By January 2017, cruise guests will find a 1,000-foot-long zipline course, a half-mile boardwalk, an underwater sculpture garden and a recreation area with sports courts and shaded picnic area. Look for two new dining venues, too: Abaco Taco and LandShark Bar & Grill, inspired by Atlantic Coast beach bars.

The crown jewel will be the exclusive lagoon retreat. Set to open by summer 2017, it will encompass 22 air-conditioned villas, a secluded beach, ocean-view restaurant, floating swim-up bar and an outpost of the line's Mandara Spa. The lagoon retreat is complimentary to guests in suites and Haven accommodations and to those who book an on-island spa treatment. There also will be a limited number of passes available for purchase.
