Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Some cruise lines offer additional discounts for Vacations To Go customers who live in certain states or provinces (regional discounts), customers who are 55 or older, airline employees, police, firefighters, EMTs, teachers, active and retired military personnel and cruise past passengers.

Vacations To Go offers a feature, unique in the cruise industry, that allows us to show you every special discount for which you are eligible, whenever you browse our site. These special rates don't apply to every sailing, but when they are in effect, they are the lowest available.

If you have not recently updated your Vacations To Go Account to make sure you see the biggest discounts for which you are eligible, please click here to do so now. It will take only a moment.

We've arranged money-saving offers with Celebrity, Princess, Oceania, Crystal and Disney. They provide deep discounts and may also include free amenities or shipboard credits, which are as good as cash on the ship and can be used toward onboard purchases not covered in the cruise fare, like shore excursions and spa treatments. Please note that some rates on our site may not be eligible for free amenities or shipboard credits.

Celebrity is offering our customers discounts of up to 85%. In addition, receive shipboard credits of up to $325 per cabin on select departures when you book an inside, ocean-view or balcony stateroom, plus get up to three of the following perks on select cruises booked at eligible rates: 1) an additional shipboard credit of $300 per cabin, 2) a Classic beverage package for two, which includes a variety of alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverages, 3) prepaid gratuities for two or 4) unlimited Internet access for two. Book a suite and get shipboard credits of up to $625 per cabin and all perks on select departures. See dates and prices.

Princess has provided big discounts of up to 56% for our customers, including exclusive pricing on a variety of sailings to Alaska, Europe and more. Also get shipboard credits of up to $85 per cabin on select voyages. Book by February 16. See dates and prices.

Oceania is offering Vacations To Go customers discounts of up to 78% and exclusive shipboard credits of up to $700 per cabin on select departures. See dates and prices.

Crystal is offering our customers newly reduced rates on select last-minute sailings -- save up to 71%. Plus, receive exclusive shipboard credits of up to $3,050 per cabin on eligible departures. The upfront fare of a luxury Crystal cruise includes gratuities, fine wines, Champagne, premium spirits and nonalcoholic beverages. Book by February 20. See dates and prices.

And, your companion cruises for free on many Crystal river cruises in Europe through 2021, plus save up to an additional $2,300 per couple on applicable departures and receive shipboard credits of up to $400 per cabin on an array of sailings. See dates and prices.

Vacations To Go is offering our customers exclusive discounts on Disney cruises -- save up to $1,000 per cabin across the fleet. Plus, pay 50% reduced deposits on sailings between June 20, 2020 and May 31, 2021. Book by February 14. See dates and prices.

As always, these offers are for new bookings only and subject to availability. Restrictions may apply, and some free amenities and shipboard credits may apply only to eligible rates. Past guests of some cruise lines may see better rates on select sailings.

Vacations at sea are just the ticket to a fantastic getaway with a group of friends or family -- or both! The list of possibilities for fun and excitement for all is far greater on a cruise than anywhere else.

Go to the spa, attend a lecture or a film, try out the onboard water park or sports court, join a fitness class or work out at the gym. Lounge by the pool, participate in a trivia challenge or learn something new in classes that cover topics like cooking, photography, wine-tasting and more. Take in a Broadway-style show, a comedy act, a jazz performance or a deck party.

For the youngest travelers, large ships offer designated children's areas, youth counselors, planned activities, video arcades, top-deck splash zones, mini-golf, hangouts for older kids and more. (To read about lines that offer kids-only facilities and activities, click here.)

There are shore excursions to suit every travel style, whether it's a day at the beach, an adventurous outing or a tour that focuses on the local culture, food or drink. Gather at meals (shipboard dining covers a broad array of cuisines and atmospheres) or in a lounge or by the pool, and share stories from your day.

And, cruise ships are by far the best venues for the mother of all family get-togethers, the multigenerational, extended-family reunion -- from toddlers to grandparents. I've arranged three of these reunions for my own extended family over the years, and I have fond memories of them all. On our first trip, when my son was only 2 years old, we all met in Miami for a sun-and-fun cruise to the warm Caribbean. A few years later, we reconvened in beautiful Vancouver for a more active and adventurous Alaska Inside Passage cruise. And several years after that, we explored the history, culture, architecture and food of great European cities on a cruise of the Mediterranean.

When I recall these trips, I vividly remember how stress-free they were. Unlike the classic out-of-town reunion, no one is the "host" and no single person is responsible for keeping everyone happy and entertained.

If a group cruise with friends or family is on your horizon, here are some things to keep in mind.

First, if you will need eight or more cabins, you may qualify for a "group" discount. Most cruise lines require at least eight double-occupancy cabins for this rate, but occasionally the requirement drops to as low as five cabins, especially on six-star, luxury lines.

Second, we recommend you book early in order to qualify for group discounts and to be assured that there will be space for your entire group. Most cruise lines offer group rates starting a year or more prior to departure.

Third, cruise groups often qualify for special perks or freebies. These can include a cocktail party, bon voyage gifts or shipboard credit, which can be used for anything on board -- from souvenirs and specialty dinners to spa treatments and shore excursions. As an added bonus, groups also can reserve onboard space for private gatherings.

Finally, if your group books at least eight double-occupancy cabins through our Group Department, one member of your group will cruise for free (this does not include air or port charges and government taxes).

When you're ready to book your cruise, we have a Group Department that specializes in bookings of eight or more cabins. They are experts in handling family reunions, church and civic groups, alumni associations, business conferences and seminars at sea. To speak to someone in our Group Department, call 800-514-9986.
