If you are a BlueGreen Owner, you can use your points to help defray the cost of your cruise. I recently inquired about a 5 day cruise (waiting to confirm with spouse) and our final cost for a category 8M (ext aft balcony) will be 2/3 less the original cost. We do not want to bank or lose points so we are using this method to pay for our cruise. Since learning this little tip, we are looking to book 2 more cruises next year. Give them a call because the booking machine online is not fully functional and the service representatives are very happy to assist.
