    Here's my situation. I have 400 pts to use by end of Nov 09. So the wife and I decided that a disney cruise might be the thing to do. A four night cruise in a Cat 5 room is 392pts and 408pts in a Cat 4 room. How do I go about paying for the extra 8 pts I need? There are only 4 of us (Me, wife, 6 yr old DD and 5 yr old DS). I can't think there's a big difference between a 4 and 5. What do you think?

    There is no difference between a 5 and a 6, but there is a pretty good difference between a 4 and a 5. With a cat 4 you get a larger steamer trunk for storage, an extra chair during the day and a room that gives you more space to spread out. The cat 5 is still the standard balcony, but you are adding some extra space in the cat 4.

    For the difference of 16 points, I'd definitely go with a cat 4. As far as getting the extra 8 points, I believe you would have to borrow from the following year or rent the additional 8 points from someone, you can't just pay for a few outright.
