Earning My Ears
- Aug 16, 2019
If DVC continues to be able to sell out member cruises to the "blue card" members, count on this restriction to continue. However, the only thing I am familiar with that has price inflation more crazy than the Disney Parks, is DCL. Their prices are getting ridiculous. At some point if DCL overshoots what folks are willing to pay out, and a member cruise goes 30 or 50% unsold at say 3 months prior to departure date, then I expect DVC to market it as a "special perk" to the "white card" members to be able to book onto that cruise. Disney is using the DCL member cruise limit as a means to drive direct sales. But DCL is a separate division, and if they need to fill up a cruise ship, you can count on them to go to Iger and the board, and make that happen.I have always found it sad that DVC only allows certain members ( the blue card members) to book the DVC member cruises. That’s even if the white card “member“ wants to pay cash. I have enjoyed the experiences of every DVC member cruise that I have been on, about 8 of them.
