I've been on two member cruises and liked them both. Everyone on the member cruise is so psyched its contagious. The member cruises have by far the fewest kids on board leaving the counsellors more available for your kids. The clubs are full of people having fun and the median age of the adults is older. Plus getting gifts every night is sure fun.

That's a funny way to put it but in essence you're correct. A non member has access to the member cruise as a guest of a member and the actual dues paying member, who bought resale post 2011, has not. Even with a fistful of cash a non developer member has to watch the cruise pull away from the pier carrying the cool kids out to sea... Is this not a Disney version of Mean Girls?
