    I was reviewing the points chart for cruises, if a cruise is 350 points, that’s for 1 person correct?

    Ahoy there, Andrea! Thanks for sailing on over to planDisney--it's always a treat to meet another Member of the Disney Vacation Club crew!

    One of the many benefits of being a part of Disney Vacation Club is the ability to use your Vacation Points flexibly for destinations around the world. This includes the Disney Collection, which is where it becomes possible to use points for a fantastic voyage on Disney Cruise Line! I am in full support of your nauticaI plans--I recently set sail on the Disney Dream for our planDisney training trip and had an unforgettable experience enjoying all that the ship had to offer and exploring Castaway Cay with my new best pals. Our trip was a Very Merrytime Cruise and the holiday touches made the voyage extra-magical!  

    Andrea, it sounds like you have found your way to the Points Charts that list how many points are needed for each specific DCL itinerary--strong work! I'm not sure which itinerary you're interested in, but for an example let's look specifically at the charts for 2024 sailings aboard the fleet's newest ship, the Disney Wish, heading to the Bahamas. The top section of the chart contains rows listing every available stateroom category, with point ranges that correspond to the four separate seasons (Value, Regular, High-Value, and Peak).

    You are correct! Those ranges represent the number of points for one Guest staying in a double-occupancy stateroom. For the 350-point stateroom you mentioned, Guests #1 and #2 would both require 350 points for their booking. For additional Guests staying in the same stateroom beyond the first two, refer to the bottom section of the chart which shows the point ranges needed for those reservations. 

    If you're ready to book your cruise, I recommend reserving early as the Rule of Four applies in this situation, so you can't book within four months of the end of your Use Year. You'll need to contact Member Services so that they can facilitate the point exchange from Vacation Points to Reservation Points. There is a non-refundable fee required for this transaction ($95 at the time of writing). Once your points are exchanged, they cannot be converted back to Vacation Points--so if you modify or cancel the cruise booking, the points can only be used for a different Disney Collection exchange before the end of your Use Year. 

    Well, Andrea, that was a lot of information for a very succinct question! I hope it is helpful as you decide how to best use your DVC points for your dream vacation. Thanks again for visiting planDisney--we hope to "SEA" ya real soon!
