?? RE Celebrity resort moving to Points

Happy New Year !!

Another poster asked a question on the Points page which I thought was an interesting question for which others may want to hear the answer.

The sales staff at a Celebrity resort, previously only affiliated with II, is stating that they will be moving to RCI as a Points resort and withdrawing from II. The sales staff apparently is trying to force owners to convert to Points at an extremely high fee ( double what I paid for any of my TS ) stating that they will only be able to deposit into RCI Points.

I know of some newly built resorts that are sold only as points. Most were weeks first and then converted to points resulting in both weeks and points owners. But what if an existing resort joined RCI Points. Would an existing owner that decided to not join points, be allowed to deposit their week into "weeks"? Has this happened before anywhere else? Just curious.

In most cases where a Weeks resort offers conversion to RCI Points, existing owners may continue to use the Weeks program. In this case, those owners may need to exchange with I.I. However, I do not know the specifics about Celebrity yet -- it is a brand new affiliation. I'll see if I can get that information.
