Do not rent points for anything outside the DVC resorts. You will do better paying cash at those places.

Also, keep in mind that a cruise is all-inclusive. Your meals, entertainment and room are all covered in the cost. No park tickets to buy, no addiditional dining cost, etc. we found that parks vacations and DCL cruise vacations cost just about the same for our family. (We pay cash instead of using our points and almost always book an inside cabin.)

Yes, that may be. But you'll want to do tours or other trips in port. And buy the photos, do the spa treatments, so you will be spending more than what you pay to book the cruise.

It doesn't have to cost a lot. We usually explore the ports on our own, buy only our embarkation photo, skip the spa and bring our own alcohol on board. Tips ($12/day per person) are a necessity, but otherwise you needn't spend an extra penny. We went all out on our most recent cruise, but usually have an onboard balance of $250 or less for a 7-day cruise.
