Thinking about taking a 3-day cruise on or around April 29, 2004. Cash for a Category 5 room would be $2,215 for 4 people. DVC doesn't have the 2004 points out yet, but points for the same time in 2003 would be 318. I realize that might change some, but probably not significant. From what I've read on this board, some people prefer to just use points for the simplicity of it. Some people suggest renting out your points for the cash. If we do that, and based on $10/point, we would need to rent out at least 222 points just for the cost of the cruise. Or we could rent out 250-300 points to help pay for airfare or park passes, as we plan to stay at WDW 4 or 5 nights prior to the cruise. I've never rented out points before so I am wondering how feasible it would be to rent out the points needed to make the cash ressie. We have points at Vero Beach and BCV. Also, is there any difference as to whether you use points or cash for the cruise as far as perks or privileges are concerned? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
