Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Today, I'm pleased to present these fantastic cruise offers from Norwegian, Oceania, Silversea and Cruise & Maritime Voyages. These specials 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.

Norwegian is offering our customers big markdowns -- save up to 86%. Also get exclusive shipboard credits of up to $415 per cabin. Book an ocean-view cabin or higher on select sailings and choose two of the following amenities: 1) a beverage package for two, 2) a specialty dining package that includes up to four meals for two guests, 3) 250 minutes of Internet or 4) a shore excursion credit of $50 per cabin, per port. Book by February 19. See dates and prices.

Oceania has just slashed fares across many departures, with savings of up to 84%. Plus, Vacations To Go customers receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $1,000 per cabin. See dates and prices.

Silversea is offering our customers savings of up to 63%. Also take advantage of reduced business-class airfare -- as low as $1,798 per round-trip ticket -- on a variety of upcoming sailings in Europe. Many other departures get an exclusive discount of $500 per cabin. Your Silversea fare includes onboard gratuities, complimentary beverages (including wine and spirits) and butler service. Book by February 20. See dates and prices.

Cruise & Maritime Voyages has reduced fares by up to 81% for our customers. Also receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $2,000 per cabin. Book by February 20. See dates and prices.

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

Cruises are not only the easiest way to see the world, but they also offer more value for the dollar than any other international vacation option.

After all, where else can you unpack once and wake up nearly every morning in a fascinating new destination? And where else can you spend as little as $57 per person, per day, and receive comfortable, well-maintained accommodations with twice-daily maid service, three-plus meals, a full slate of shipboard activities and nightly entertainment?

Here are a few examples of the extraordinary values in the marketplace right now:

A 4-night Bahamas cruise from Miami, starting from $57 per person, per night (FastDeal #14859)

A 16-night Panama Canal cruise from Fort Lauderdale, starting from $62 per person, per night (FastDeal #12366)

Cruise lines can provide such outstanding value because of the efficiency with which they deliver their service.

For example, the typical cruise ship has teams of room stewards, chefs and waiters working seven days a week to clean 1,000 or more cabins per day and prepare and serve three or four meals a day to upward of 2,000 passengers. When the ship sails from the port of departure, the hotel director knows exactly how many meals will be served for the entire cruise, and the vessel has been provisioned accordingly. Every cabin, table and employee is fully utilized, every day.

That's much more efficient and less wasteful than the system land-based hotels and restaurants must employ to serve a much smaller group of customers who vary in number daily.

As ships have gotten larger and cruise lines have grown into billion-dollar enterprises, the cruise lines' huge buying power has reduced their costs for everything consumed on the ship. Plus, larger ships and show lounges spread the cost of entertainers, the captain, officers and cruise director over more people.

And unlike airlines and hotels that accept empty seats and rooms during slow periods, cruise lines will do whatever it takes to sail full. On almost every ship except the six-star vessels, cruise lines will slash prices as low as they need to in order to fill every cabin. Even the six-star lines are now offering discounts that were once unheard of.

They do this for two reasons. First, on most lines, a significant percentage of the crews' compensation comes from gratuities -- and there are no gratuities from empty cabins.

Second, venues such as spas, boutiques, photography studios and excursion desks are completely dependent on onboard purchases, which of course are directly related to the number of people on the ship.

All of this has resulted in fantastic bargains for people cruising today, and Vacations To Go has become the biggest seller of cruises in the world by being the best at finding and negotiating the lowest discounts in the industry, frequently selling them out before other agencies are even aware they exist.

Always tell your Vacations To Go cruise counselor if you qualify for a military or interline discount, are a past passenger of the line you are calling about, or if anyone in the cabin will be 55+, so that he or she can make sure to check for any additional discounts to which you may be entitled.
