Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Here some great money-saving offers that we've negotiated with Holland America, Celebrity, Regent, Disney, Windstar and MSC. 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.

Holland America is offering our customers huge discounts -- save up to 84% -- as well as shipboard credits of up to $600 per cabin and free gratuities on select departures through January 2018. Past guests may see better rates on select sailings. Book by July 10. See dates and prices.

Celebrity has just reduced rates on a variety of departures for Vacations To Go -- save up to 76%. Plus, choose one of the following perks: 1) a 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. See dates and prices.

Regent is offering our customers huge discounts in a variety of regions, including Alaska, the Mediterranean, Asia, Australia/New Zealand and the Panama Canal -- save up to 84%. Select sailings also qualify for a shipboard credit of up to $700 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.

Vacations To Go is offering our customers exclusive discounts of up to $1,000 per cabin off Disney cruises. See dates and prices.

Windstar has reduced rates exclusively for our customers, providing savings of up to 87%. The line is known for its casually elegant onboard atmosphere and includes a complimentary onshore private event on all trips: Have lunch at a Sicilian winery or go to a beach party in St. Lucia, for example. Book by June 27. See dates and prices.

MSC is offering Vacations To Go customers fantastic markdowns -- save up to 64%. On applicable Caribbean sailings, receive shipboard credits of up to $150 per cabin. Kids age 11 and under sail free on select departures. See dates and prices.

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

Passengers will be able to immerse themselves in fascinating underwater worlds in an innovative public space aboard the next two Ponant ships, Le Laperouse and Le Champlain. Each will feature Blue Eye, a multisensory lounge that lies beneath the waterline. Two giant windows shaped like whale eyes allow guests to take in the views -- you might catch dolphins frolicking in the bow waves -- while digital screens project scenes filmed by three underwater cameras.

High-tech hydrophones placed beneath the keel will capture the sounds of the sea within a 3-mile radius and transmit them into the lounge in the form of acoustic waves. Meanwhile, "Body Listening" sofas gently vibrate in time with these sound waves.

Le Laperouse and Le Champlain, due in June and September 2018, are the first two yachts in the line's upcoming series of four Ponant Explorers vessels. Each carries 184 guests.

With the addition of these ships to its fleet, Ponant will expand its high-end expedition cruise offerings, which are offered in destinations worldwide. Vacations To Go customers receive exclusive rates on select Antarctica sailings, as well as a shipboard credit of $100 per cabin on most upcoming departures. See dates and prices.

American Queen Steamboat Company, which sails the Mississippi, Columbia and other scenic U.S. rivers, will debut its third ship this summer. Like its sister vessels, the new American Duchess will be an elegant paddle wheeler that provides all the comforts of contemporary cruising.

The all-suite, 166-passenger ship makes its inaugural sailing this August. Accommodations include 550-square-foot Loft Suites -- downstairs they have dining and lounging areas, a bathroom and a private balcony, while the upper level houses a bedroom and second bath. These suites come with the services of a River Butler, who can unpack your suitcases or serve dinner on your veranda.

Among the most popular itineraries for the American Duchess are 15- and 22-day sailings of The Mighty Mississippi between New Orleans and Red Wing, Minnesota, in 2018. The American Queen also sails this itinerary. To view all departures of The Mighty Mississippi in 2018, click here.

I'm also pleased to present these 2017 offers from American Queen Steamboat Company:

Pay reduced rates for cabin upgrades on select summer departures when you book and pay in full.

Save $400 to $1,400 per couple ($200 to $700 per person) off November and December sailings in certain cabin categories. Departures include "Christmas Markets" cruises on the Mississippi River -- a highlight is a festive evening at Louisiana's Nottoway Plantation, with a holiday market featuring local artisans and the traditional lighting of bonfires on the river levee. They also include a Thanksgiving trip, wine-themed sailings in the Pacific Northwest and New Year's cruises.

Every American Queen Steamboat Company vacation includes complimentary wine and beer at dinner and bottled water, soft drinks and specialty coffees throughout the voyage. To see all itineraries and offers, click here.

The Oasis of the Seas will take passengers to an optimal spot at sea to witness the total solar eclipse -- where the sun is covered entirely by the moon -- on August 21, 2017.

The path of the total eclipse will stretch along a corridor, about 70 miles wide, from Oregon to South Carolina before passing over the Atlantic Ocean, where Oasis passengers will have unique vantage points of the phenomenon from the decks of their Royal Caribbean ship. The last time a total solar eclipse crossed the continental United States was in 1918.

The Oasis of the Seas departs Port Canaveral for a weeklong Caribbean cruise on August 20. Following two days at sea, it calls at St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau. Click here for discounted rates.

When in Rome on a Mediterranean cruise, don't eat, drink or sit at the edge of its fountains. Earlier this month, Mayor Virginia Raggi signed an order prohibiting these activities -- as well as swimming -- at about 40 historic fountains, including famed Trevi Fountain and La Barcaccia, situated at the foot of the Spanish Steps. Violators risk fines of 40 to 240 euros (about USD $45 to $268). The new edict was prompted by a series of incidents that saw visitors plunging into cool fountain waters.
