Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

I'll start today's newsletter with four fantastic offers from Emerald Cruises. The company provides an exceptional value for its river cruises on the Rhine, Danube and other waterways.

Book by May 20 to take advantage of these deals:

Save with huge last-minute discounts of up to 55% on cruises departing over the next 90 days.

Save up to $2,950 per couple on other Europe river cruises.

Get a special low rate and a free upgrade to a balcony stateroom on select departures.

Upgrade to a balcony stateroom for $30 to $535 per person on other cruises this summer.

The upfront rate of an Emerald cruise includes onboard meals, gratuities, airport transfers, daily tours, Wi-Fi, bottled water stocked daily in your cabin and wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner.

Emerald's ships have heated swimming pools with retractable roofs (this space converts to a movie theater on some evenings), as well as balcony suites that open to the outdoors with the push of a button. The fleet is equipped with bicycles that guests can use to explore ashore.

Expertly guided excursions in port -- covered in the upfront rate -- include EmeraldACTIVE hiking, biking and canoeing excursions and the EmeraldPLUS program, which helps passengers explore the destination's culture in depth.

For example, on Enchantment of Eastern Europe, guests can attend a choral performance or hike to the rock-hewn churches of Ivanovo in Bulgaria. Meanwhile, Danube Delights provides opportunities to join a Slovakian family for coffee and cake in their home or participate in a guided cycling tour in Vienna.



Our river cruises in the U.S. provide a relaxing way to explore the country's scenic landscapes and rich history. Here are some of the best deals currently available to Vacations To Go customers.
