What about using your timeshare week to go on a cruise?
Norwegian Cruise Line is the cruise line for Diamond Resorts International. Destinations included by Norwegian’s partnership with Diamond include the Mediterranean, Alaska, Western Caribbean, Baltic and Hawaii. The ships participating in the program encompass some of the most impressive ships of their line: Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Sun, Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Pearl and Pride of America. If, for example, you trade in 10,000 points, that would equate to anywhere from $700 – $1,000 in a credit towards your cruise.
Now that you’re thinking “outside the timeshare box” consider these additional options for your points:
You could also use your Diamond Resort International Club Points to purchase miles through major air carriers like American, Southwest, Hawaiian, US Air, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, and Air France at the rate of 2.5 miles for every point you trade in. Or you could simply redeem your 10,000 points for anywhere from $700 – $1,000 towards your airfare.
DRI also offers guided tours, luggage forwarding services, nightly rentals, week long resort stays, and other services designed to cover every possible base for the well seasoned traveler.
Worldwide, Diamond Resorts International boasts 379 resort locations. With a selection that large and the flexibility their plan affords it is hard to imagine a Diamond Club points owner not finding something that satisfies their vacation needs.
