I have always wanted to take a Members Cruise but have a really hard time justifying the cost especially for a family.

I find it impressive that someone (not accusing!) was able to compose a 900-word announcement of a cruise without naming the ship involved! (NOW FIXED)

We did the members cruise once. We had a great time, met some fantastic people and made some great memories. I think the price is worth paying to try once, but after going once I have never felt the need to do it again.

Is there any where to go to calculate the cost? Maybe I missed it, but seems odd to call and book blindly, not knowing how much it is.

Here is a link to the point chart and cash price of the Member cruise. Do note that the costs are per person, double occupancy.

We want to do this but have never cruised with DCL before.

Couple questions-

1)Can I book for extended family? Mom, Former Brother in Law, niece and nephew? In addition to my family of 5

2) Does this count toward DCL status- meaning when I go on a regular disney cruise after this will I be silver?

3) Full payment is required over a year in advance? Am I reading that correctly?
