I decided to join my friend Kim on her cruise after Lou Mongello’s WDW cruise in November. The cash price is $1219 for a Category 8D, which is a porthole with seating.
The points value is 90 points per person for the 1st and 2nd passengers.
That calculates to 180 points. Plus there is a $95 exchange fee.
If I were to rent my points I would get $10 a point So the cost is $1895.
I’m sure someone out there is asking, What if I chose a cheaper room?
I’ll do that math, the cheapest point value for my cruise is 75 points.
That calculates to 145 points. The cost would be $1545 which would be more than the room I chose.
Hopefully this math helps someone, let me know what you think.
Disclaimer: This is not a solicitation to rent my points, it is being done to evaluate when to use cash versus points.
When I was visiting Kidani Village last week (which you can read about here), I noticed the butterfly quotes on the walls around the resort. I had seen them before, but never realized how many there were. So I decided to go and find them all to compile together these words of wisdom. Enjoy!
