Does anyone know the pricing for the DVC cruise departing on Jan 10/13 for 3 nights?
Is it the pricing any better than if we booked a regular cruise?

There is a points/price chart on the members website. Not sure how it compares to other 3 nts.

Found it! Silly me.

I am surprised to see that the rates are higher. I guess we will look at booking a regluar cruise. We really want to add one onto the end of our trip in Jan 2013. We did that this year and it was the perfect way to end our trip.

I don't think they have published priced on the charts before, but the points have always been way more then for a regular cruise.

The price is there. They want close to $800 for each adult for the 3 night. I can get the same cruise on the same ship 3 days early for $640 an adult.

Never done a member cruise - I also was surprised that the member cruise was more. From what I have seen posted, the gratuities are included and you get several nice gifts.

One reason the price is higher is that gratuities are included. You also get a lot of "free" gifts on a members cruise, so the price is likely higher to cover that. Plus member cruises are one off (or two off now), cruises that are always in high demand so the price will be higher and DVC cash cruise prices are almost always higher than what can be gotten directly from the cruise line.
