Has anyone tried "vactionstogo" dot com?

I am hoping to go on a Caribbean cruise and in preliminary research found this website that purports to give 75% discounts on last minute cruises. Is this a legit business? Anyone have any good or bad experience with them? I don't want to give them my hopes and credit card and just be swindled. Can you imagine showing up at the dock and you are not on the list??? Where is the best place to get good cruise deals?

We've used VTGO for 3 or 4 trips. One was to book a Trafalgar motorcoach tour of Israel. The others were cruises. We felt we got very good service from them. As far as them being able to get cheaper fares, it's my understanding, no agency can do that any longer. However, on our last cruise, a Carnival transAtlantic from Barcelona to Galveston, the price for our inside cabin went down, and we had already paid in full. I called our VTGO agent and asked what he could do for us. He got us a free upgrade to a deluxe oceanview cabin with a bath and a half, including a tub large enough for me to take an actual bath. They are legitimate, and their agent who we worked with was excellent.

Yes, it's a legitimate online travel agency, primarily offering last-minute cruise packages and consolidator fares.

Doug,

Vacations to Go is certainly not primarily last-minute packages.

I have used them for the last couple years for all my cruising. They are very good.
