Newsletter Dated March 2, 2015

Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

We work hard on your behalf to negotiate the best possible cruise deals for our loyal customers. Many of the offers I present in my weekly newsletters are exclusive to Vacations To Go -- you won't find them anywhere else.

This week, I'll start with a fantastic offer from Celebrity that I'm particularly excited about. It's a great opportunity for my readers who are thinking about a European cruise this year.

Celebrity is offering our customers exclusive new rates on European departures in 2015 when you book any balcony cabin or suite -- save up to 72%. Plus, receive a shipboard credit of up to $725 per cabin, free gratuities and free drinks (including alcoholic beverages) -- you'll get all three perks. We've also negotiated exclusive low rates for many itineraries in other destinations outside Europe; book a balcony cabin on these departures and choose one of the following: shipboard credits of up to $300 per cabin, free gratuities or free drinks. Book a Concierge Class balcony cabin or higher and receive all three amenities. Click here for dates and prices.

Below are three more special promotions from Carnival, Silversea and Azamara. Like the Celebrity offer above, a couple of them include free shipboard credits, which can be used toward onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, like shore excursions, spa treatments, photos and boutique purchases.

Carnival is offering Vacations To Go customers huge markdowns of up to 79%. Past guests may see discounted rates on select sailings. Click here for dates and prices.

Silversea is offering our customers shipboard credits of up to $1,200 on all sailings in 2015. Plus, book a European voyage and receive free Wi-Fi Internet access plus a selection of free shore excursions in each port. Your Silversea fare covers onboard gratuities, complimentary beverages (including wine and spirits) and butler service. Book by March 16. Click here for dates and prices.

Azamara is offering Vacations To Go customers tremendous discounts, with rates slashed by up to 75%. Plus, enjoy shipboard credits of up to $1,200 per cabin on a variety of sailings. Click here for dates and prices.

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



Below are brief descriptions of the five top-selling cruise destinations for Vacations To Go customers. I've highlighted a few great deals in each region and provided links to more info and additional discounted departures.

Bahamas
The isles of the Bahamas are not far from the coast of Florida, and it's a great destination for a quick, warm-weather beach break. We offer hundreds of shorter three- to five-night cruises to the Bahamas from Florida ports like Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Port Canaveral. Longer itineraries of a week or more are available, too, as are departures from Eastern Seaboard cities like Baltimore and New York, and Gulf Coast ports like Galveston and New Orleans.

Many Bahamas trips include a day at the cruise line's private island, where you can enjoy all sorts of water sports, lounge on the beach, eat a barbecue lunch and rent a private cabana.

Here are some fantastic deals on Bahamas cruises.

A 4-night Norwegian cruise departing Miami on May 4, starting at $299 (FastDeal #23532). Save 73%!

A 7-night Carnival cruise departing Galveston on April 18, starting at $439 (FastDeal #18504). Save 75%!

A 7-night Norwegian cruise departing New York on May 2, starting at $499 (FastDeal #20787). Save 72%!

Caribbean
Our Caribbean cruise vacations generally fall into three regions. Western Caribbean itineraries can include such islands as Jamaica and Grand Cayman, the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and locales on the eastern coasts of Belize and Honduras. Eastern Caribbean cruises might call on Puerto Rico, St. Maarten and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Southern Caribbean routes can stretch all the way down to the "ABC" islands -- Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao -- near the northern coast of Venezuela.

You can board a Caribbean cruise at ports in Florida and along the Gulf Coast, and in a few northeastern cities. Many Eastern and Southern Caribbean trips depart from embarkation ports on Caribbean islands like Puerto Rico or Barbados.

Here are some incredible deals on Caribbean cruises.

A 7-night Carnival cruise departing Galveston on April 4, starting at $439 (FastDeal #16402). Save 75%!

A 7-night Norwegian cruise departing Miami on April 11, starting at $449 (FastDeal #16599). Save 72%!

Alaska
Our Alaska cruises will introduce you to the state's majestic scenery and diverse wildlife. Against a backdrop of pristine glaciers and snowcapped peaks, you might spot whales, orcas, black and brown bears, sea otters and bald eagles.

There are two kinds of itineraries: Inside Passage cruises that sail round trip from Vancouver, Seattle or San Francisco, and Gulf of Alaska cruises that sail one way between Vancouver and Seward or Whittier, both gateways to Anchorage. Cruise tours combine an Alaska voyage with a tour of an inland destination, like Denali National Park or the Canadian Rockies.

The Alaska cruising season begins in May and lasts through September. Here are a few Alaska cruise bargains.

A 7-night Norwegian cruise departing Vancouver on May 18, starting at $559 (FastDeal #18186). Save 87%!

A 7-night Holland America cruise departing Vancouver on May 24, starting at $549 (FastDeal #11974). Save 69%!

Mediterranean
Mediterranean cruises are a fantastic way to sample several diverse, intriguing places in one vacation. On a single weeklong sailing, you might see the broad boulevards and Art Nouveau buildings of Barcelona, the antiquities of Rome, the Renaissance art of Florence and the golden beaches of the French Riviera.

The prime sailing season stretches from April through October, but you'll find ships in the region year-round. Some Mediterranean itineraries incorporate ports in North Africa (in Tunisia or Morocco) or the Holy Land (Israel and Egypt).

Here are three great deals in the Mediterranean.

A 11-night Celebrity cruise departing Rome on April 27, starting at $899 (FastDeal #17390). Save 75%!

An 8-night Royal Caribbean cruise departing Rome on September 25, starting at $819 (FastDeal #24917). Save 63%!

Baltic
Baltic itineraries focus on Northern Europe. They feature Scandinavian cities like Stockholm, Oslo and Helsinki and destinations in the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Routes also can incorporate ports in the British Isles, Germany, the Netherlands and northern France.

These sailings offer opportunities to delve into the history and folklore of the region, to visit its castles and palaces, and its museums and cathedrals. Departures take place during the warmer months, May through September.

Here are three great Baltic deals.

A 7-night Royal Caribbean cruise departing Stockholm on July 12, starting at $1,064 (FastDeal #26468). Save 53%!

A 12-night Celebrity cruise departing Amsterdam on August 22, starting at $1,799 (FastDeal #28535). Save 61%!
