Default Booking passenger on DCL with DVC points

I thought I read somewhere that there is some sort of way to get a "deal" if you book a 4th passenger on a Disney Cruise using points for a good value. Looking at booking a concierge room and if I can get a deal that would be great.

You mean Disney Cruise Line? In some sailings I've seen reports that the child fare for points worked out better than renting the points for cash. Things like that really vary though afaik and there's no particular deal.

To book any passenger on a cruise using points, the entire cruise must be booked through DVC. Any cash portion must be paid IN FULL at the time of booking.

YIKES -- Paying in Full, especially right now, sounds scary....

I'm not sure how long it will be before cruising begins and gets back to some sort of normalcy.

We had been pre-planning an Alaskan Cruise when COVD hit.

I think that David’s were advertising some kind of deal by which you “paid” in points which they the rented out in exchange for them booking you on DCL.

That was two years ago or so, no idea if that’s still a “thing”.

That is what keeps me from signing up for a members cruise. I don't want to fork over all that money in advance.

With that particular cruise, its a Charter, so full payment is required by everyone. Plus its at least a 20%-50% premium over a normal cruise price.

i would think there would be discounts right now to encourage people to book a future cruise. A good discount would motivate me to pull the trigger.
