    No actual experience, but generally using timeshare points or credits are a lousy use of your MF dollars. But here's how you can compare. Get an offer from Westgate for what cruise xxx would cost after depositing your week. Then add what your MF is. Then go to a site like www.vacationstogo.com and check what that exact cruise sells for in cash. You'll probably find your timeshare doesn't reduce the price by much.

    Also, as a suggestion only check Costco Travel and compare the costs to Westgate Cruise and Travel.:wall:

    We've been members for about 3 years now and what I've found is that the best deals seem to come on cruises. We booked Alaska for about $500 under what other sites were offering for the same cruise. We used our WG Cruise and Travel Credits. I would never recommend trading your week for credits -- that's a rip-off. WG Travel Credits are only a partial $$ off for resort and hotel and I've found I can usually do better by searching other sites or using II or RCI for weeks. If you have a lot of last minute travel options the last minute weeks can be great though -- looking forward to that when we retire.
