Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Several fantastic airfare deals for Europe are about to expire this month. These early bird savings are for 2018 departures and must be booked by September 30.

Fly for free from select gateways on Scenic cruises such as Unforgettable Douro and Gems of the Danube.

Fly for free from certain cities, plus companion cruises for free on Viking sailings such as Paris to the Swiss Alps and France's Finest.

Fly for free from select gateways on departures of Rhine & Rhone River Cruise, Splendours of Europe and more with Emerald Waterways.

Airfare is included from select cities on Uniworld river cruises. This offer is combinable with the company's early booking discount of 10%. Includes Gems of Northern Italy and Uniworld's new Remarkable Rhine itinerary.



Several new river ships have launched in the last few weeks. I've listed them below -- click the links for ship details and itineraries.

Carrying 166 passengers, the American Duchess is the most intimate ship to join the fleet of American Queen Steamboat Company. While the Duchess has the signature red paddle wheel and white "wedding cake" exterior of classic Mississippi River cruisers, its interiors sport a more contemporary look than its sister ships. Accommodations include two-story Loft Suites.

The 110-passenger Crystal Bach from Crystal is outfitted with multiple dining venues, a spa and fitness center and a self-service pantry with coffees, teas, wines and snacks. All accommodations feature butler service, king-size beds and walk-in closets. It primarily sails the Rhine River. A sister ship, Crystal Mahler, will debut at the end of September.

CroisiEurope inaugurated its new 60-guest Mekong River ship last weekend. Guests aboard the RV Indochine II can take a dip in the pool, get a massage, enjoy the views from the outdoor sundeck bar or attend a lecture that focuses on Southeast Asia. All will have private balconies.



There is still space available on 2017 Christmas markets cruises in Europe. These late-November and December sailings offer opportunities to visit festive outdoor holiday bazaars set up in city squares. They are a much-loved winter tradition, particularly throughout Germany and Austria. Merchants sell handcrafted ornaments, toys, candles and woodcarvings, as well as local treats like grilled sausages, roasted chestnuts and gingerbread. Click here to see all departures this year, or take advantage of a couple of remaining last-minute deals below.

Save $500 to $1,500 per couple ($250 to $750 per person) off Christmas markets cruises on the Rhine and Danube with AmaWaterways when you book by September 30.

Companion cruises for free on Crystal holiday river cruises.



If you're thinking of taking a river cruise and traveling solo, you probably already know that operators often charge an extra fee -- called a single supplement -- for an individual booking a cabin intended for two.

The good news? Vacations To Go has found low or no single supplements on a variety of river cruise departures. These great solo deals are listed on our site. Click here to see our Singles Travel Discounts now.
