Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Scenic specializes in luxury river cruises that it calls "truly all-inclusive." The upfront price includes all meals, unlimited beverages, all gratuities, transfers, Wi-Fi, butler service, an in-suite refrigerator restocked daily and shore excursions.

Four new offers for our customers provide even more value on Scenic river cruises in Europe.


Save an additional $300 per couple ($150 per person) off select river cruises when you book by December 14. This offer is combinable with other promotions.

The offers below must be booked by December 31:

Fly for free from select gateways on applicable departures.

Save $2,000 per couple ($1,000 per person) off select sailings.

Save $1,000 per couple ($500 per person) off Gems of the Danube with Prague, plus receive the three-night hotel extension in Prague for free.

Scenic offers several ways to enjoy each destination. Scenic Enrich experiences provide unique cultural highlights, like a private concert in Vienna. Scenic FreeChoice offers multiple options for sightseeing, from easygoing outings like museum visits to active pursuits such as hiking and biking. Scenic Tailormade is for those who wish to explore on their own. You'll be given a handheld GPS device loaded with interactive maps, commentary and touring options, including cycling routes.

The line's Scenic Space-Ships have suites with private verandas. The balconies can be transformed into sun lounges -- push a button and a glass pane will rise to create an enclosed space with river views.

The Scenic Diamond and Scenic Sapphire feature Scenic Culinaire, which hosts cooking classes for up to 10 guests. It's outfitted with cooking stations, refrigerators filled with fresh ingredients from local markets and a cheese and wine cellar.




Next, let's look at some new ships launching over the next few months.

The 158-guest MS AmaLea debuts for AmaWaterways in March, when it will sail tulip time cruises in the Netherlands before repositioning to the Danube in May. Most staterooms will have either French balconies or twin balconies (both a French balcony and a full step-out balcony). It also has adjoining cabins that can accommodate families of up to five.

Crystal River Cruises will introduce two more 110-passenger ships in Europe in the spring, Crystal Debussy in April and Crystal Ravel in May. Each will feature multiple dining venues, a spa with fitness center and a self-service pantry with coffees, teas, wines and snacks. All accommodations feature butler service, king-size beds, walk-in closets, dual vanities in bathrooms and Nespresso machines.

Finally, CroisiEurope debuts the 16-passenger African Dream on the Chobe and Zambezi rivers this month. On these southern Africa itineraries, guests embark on excursions by land and water to view wildlife up close.




Windstar Cruises specializes in casually elegant sailings that visit an array of alluring ports, many of which are inaccessible to larger ships. The line's three sleek sailing vessels carry 148 to 310 guests, while three power yachts each accommodate 212 passengers.

On a Windstar cruise, you can explore villages tucked into the Mediterranean coast, nature preserves in Costa Rica, the lush isles of French Polynesia and other destinations. In 2018, the company will offer its first itineraries in eastern Canada and New England, and it also returns to Alaska for a limited number of sailings.


Windstar is offering our customers huge discounts -- save up to 81% on a variety of sailings when you book by December 15. Click here for departures and rates.

The onboard atmosphere on a Windstar cruise is relaxed. Guests can look forward to swimming, sailboarding and other activities off the ship's water-sports platform, get a massage in the spa and visit the bridge to chat with the captain. Guest speakers lead presentations in a variety of topics, like international diplomacy, oceanography or Polynesian art and culture. Through its partnership with the James Beard Foundation, Windstar offers select departures with cooking demonstrations by top chefs, local market tours and culinary shore excursions.

Two more river cruise operators have announced 2019 itineraries.
