Try to buy a trip to europe with my mvc points .They ask 6500 pts for a cruise- way too much points,I've phone celebrity cruise for the price of that cruise same room same date same ship it was 3678,28$ for two. 6500 pts for 3500.00$ not a good deal.They have to adjust it's not a fair deal.I'll be in Kuaii instead for a week and 5 days in Ko Olina for the same amount of points.
I assume you mean 650,000 points for a $3678 cruise!
The fact is that Marriott points are Marriotts currency, and you'll virtually always get a much better deal on hotel stays/travel packages (the miles+Marriott voucher) than on any other type of redemption.
I wouldn't consider that cruise redemption for a moment, but to some road-warriors sitting on a huge points-mountain accumulated on the bosses dime, well that's a different matter...
