Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

We've negotiated some terrific offers with Royal Caribbean, Holland America, Cunard, Windstar and Ponant. In addition to deep discounts, these deals include shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used toward onboard purchases like shore excursions and spa treatments.

Royal Caribbean is offering our customers newly reduced rates on a variety of upcoming departures -- save up to 83%. Also receive shipboard credits of up to $150 per cabin on all seven-night Caribbean voyages from June through September 2017. See dates and prices.

Holland America has slashed rates by up to 89% for Vacations To Go, and the line also is offering shipboard credits of up to $600 per cabin on an array of cruises as well as free gratuities on select sailings between June 2017 and March 2018. Past guests of this line and sister brand Cunard are eligible for exclusive shipboard credits of up to $750 per cabin on nearly every available Holland America cruise. Book by April 7. See dates and prices.

Cunard is offering our customers savings of up to 74%, as well as exclusive shipboard credits of up to $1,500 per cabin on select voyages. On the Queen Victoria, get free gratuities on select 2017 sailings. Book a suite on certain 2018 departures and get free gratuities and free drinks. Past guests of this line and sister company Holland America are eligible for exclusive shipboard credits of up to $1,700 per cabin on nearly every available Cunard sailing. Book by April 1. See dates and prices.

Windstar is offering our customers discounts of up to 85% off cruises aboard its masted sailing ships and power yachts, which provide casually elegant atmospheres. Book by April 4. This line includes a complimentary onshore private event on all sailings, such as lunch at a Sicilian winery or a beach party and fire-dancing performance in Tahiti. See dates and prices.

Ponant has reduced rates by up to 45% for Vacations To Go customers. In addition, get an exclusive shipboard credit of $500 per cabin on most departures. Book by March 31. See dates and prices.

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

Staterooms that turn into large balconies with the touch of a button and a lounge that hangs over the side of the ship are among the innovative features planned for the Celebrity Edge, which Celebrity will debut next year. The first cruise ship to be completely designed in 3-D, it will have an outward-facing theme that capitalizes on sea views and the outdoors.

Among accommodations are Edge Staterooms with Infinite Verandas. These living spaces go right to the water's edge, and when the windows are open your entire cabin essentially turns into a veranda that's open to the fresh air.

The Magic Carpet is a floating platform cantilevered over the waves; it can be positioned at four different decks on the starboard side of the ship, as high as 13 stories up. About the size of a tennis court, it will have a bar, seating and space for live entertainment.

High-ceilinged private cabanas on the pool deck will look toward the ocean, while the Rooftop Garden will offer alfresco movies and performances as well as cozy spots for relaxing, dining and drinking.

The 2,926-guest Celebrity Edge will debut in December 2018 and sail Caribbean itineraries from Fort Lauderdale. Click here for dates and prices.

The elegant paddle wheelers of the American Queen Steamboat Company sail multiday voyages on the Mississippi River and its tributaries as well as the Columbia and Snake rivers in Washington and Oregon. The 432-guest American Queen, the 237-guest American Empress and the upcoming 166-passenger American Duchess resemble classic 19th-century steamboats but boast all the comforts of contemporary cruising.

Completely reconstructed from a 1995 hull, the American Duchess will be an all-suite ship. Accommodations include 550-square-foot Loft Suites, which feature dining and lounging areas, a bathroom and a private balcony downstairs, and a bedroom and second bath on the upper level.

I'm pleased to present these offers for our customers from the river cruise operator.

Choose one free amenity when you book select American Empress cruises in the Pacific Northwest: a one-night hotel stay after your sailing, a beverage package (includes wine, beer and spirits) or a shipboard credit of $200 per cabin.

Pay reduced rates for cabin upgrades on select summer sailings when you book and pay in full. Eligible cruises include Bourbon - The American Spirit -- with distillery tours, tastings and talks with experts from top bourbon producers -- as well as Music of the 50s and 60s and Life on the Mississippi.

Princess will introduce the high-tech Ocean Medallion to cruises aboard several of its ships. About the size of a quarter, the Ocean Medallion contains your digital passenger identity and can be worn as a wristband, pendant or clip, or it can be stored in your pocket.

The gadget knows who you are and what you like, and it helps enhance communication with the crew so that they can provide more intuitive service (for example, your dining room server might bring out your favorite dessert at dinner). It also provides hands-free cabin entry (no keycard required) and lets you shop on board without swiping or signing.

Personal information is not stored on the Medallion, and guests can opt out of the program if they wish.

Princess has paired the medallion with the Ocean Compass, a personal guide that you can access from mobile devices, your cabin TV and touch screens located about the vessel. Through the Ocean Compass, you can order food and drinks to be delivered to your location on certain parts of the ship, find fellow travelers in your group on board and learn about activities on and off the ship suited to your interests.

Ocean Medallion cruises begin on November 15 on the Regal Princess and will roll out to three more ships in 2018: the Royal Princess (January 19), Caribbean Princess (March 18) and Island Princess (May 16).
