North is mandatory.

Bay Vista in St. John is not mandatory.
Nor is all of Vistana.

In fact, just go to the sticky. ;)

Truly Odd Terminology.

For something as completely voluntary as going on vacation at a resort, it is nothing short of strange & weird that a timeshare company came up with the term mandatory to designate something relating to an ownership category.

Full Disclosure: I don't own any StarWood timeshares. If I did, it is highly questionable whether I could figure out mandatory & voluntary, etc. Doofus is as doofus does, & all that.
