    Hi

    We are thinking of doing the 3 night Bahamas Cruise next year with DCL, but it seems to me that it is a lot of DVC points (260-odd). If I look at the cost for cash, I think I can get a better value deal.

    What do you think guys? Is there any advantage booking either way? Also, being in the UK, if we wanted to book the cruise with cash, what is the best way. Is going direct to Disney Cruise line the best option?

    Appreciate your help

    Booking a cruise on points isn't really a great value in my opinion. I rented out points in order to pay for a cruise this Autumn, and booked via dreams unlimited travel , who were great.

    Agree that cash is better option. Cash has no reservation fee like points and better cancellation policies. I use Dreams Unlimited to handle my DCL reservations.

    Thanks guys, do Dreams Unlimited tend to be cheaper than DCL direct?

    Dreams Unlimited should be the same price as DCL but will usually offer better onboard credits.

    DCL will now give a price in £ so you needn't worry about currency fluctuations if that is a concern.
