Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

This week I'd like to start by sharing some exciting news. Disney Cruise Line and Carnival Cruise Line each announced a return-to-service plan for three more ships.

The Disney Magic will offer mostly four- and five-night cruises from Miami starting October 28, the Disney Fantasy will offer seven-night and longer cruises from Port Canaveral starting October 9, and the Disney Wonder will offer three- and four-night cruises from San Diego starting October 5. Later, the Disney Wonder will sail through the Panama Canal and then offer four- and six-night sailings from Galveston and New Orleans.

The Carnival Valor will sail four- and five-night cruises from New Orleans starting November 1, the Carnival Legend will sail seven-night cruises from Baltimore starting November 14, and finally the Carnival Radiance will sail four-night cruises from Long Beach starting December 13.

Disney now has all five of their ships either sailing or officially scheduled to sail, and Carnival now has 17 of their 24 ships -- 70% of their fleet -- either sailing or officially scheduled to sail, a wonderful testament to the rapid recovery of the cruise industry.

Planning a cruise vacation on Disney, Carnival or another cruise line? You have two categories of ships to choose from -- Vaccine-Required Cruises and Vaccine-Not-Required Cruises.

If you are interested in Vaccine-Required Cruises anywhere in the world, you can click the link here or on the home page of to sort your options by date, region or cruise line. Or, click any of the following regions to see the full list of Vaccine-Required Cruises in Alaska, Bahamas, Baltic, Bermuda, Black Sea, British Isles, Canary Islands, Caribbean, Eastern Canada & New England, Europe, Galapagos, Greek Islands, Hawaii, Mediterranean, Mexico & Central America, Northern Europe, Pacific U.S. & Canada, Pacific U.S. & Mexico, Panama Canal, Repositioning, Tahiti, Transatlantic and Transpacific.

If you are interested in Vaccine-Not-Required Cruises, just click the link here or on the home page of to sort by date, region or cruise line. Vaccine-Not-Required Cruises are now operating or scheduled to operate in Alaska, Bahamas, Bermuda, Caribbean, Mexico & Central America, Pacific U.S. & Canada and the United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii).

Even if a ship does not require passengers to be vaccinated, the cruise lines strongly recommend vaccination and we hear that about 90% of the bookings on these sailings are by passengers who have been vaccinated.

As official return-to-service dates are announced for the other ships, we will add their sailings to the lists above. Onboard safety protocols for vaccinated and unvaccinated passengers vary by ship and can be seen on our site at the FastDeal level. On all ships, the crew has been vaccinated.

Regardless of which type of ship you are interested in, our expert cruise counselors can help you sort through your options, answer all of your questions and help you find the lowest price.

And finally, if you're holding a future cruise credit (FCC) from a previous cancellation, you can use it on any sailing offered by Vacations To Go (on the same cruise line that issued the FCC) regardless of whether the original cruise was booked through Vacations To Go.

Resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic are great options for customers looking for a tropical getaway.

Since the CDC requires travelers to present a negative Covid-19 test before returning to the U.S., a wide selection of all-inclusive resort companies have arranged for tests to be administered to guests, at no charge, at the hotel. Many companies are even covering the cost of quarantining at the hotel (including accommodations, meals and nonalcoholic beverages) if a guest tests positive.
