Enhance Your Cruise Experience
As ports reopen and cruising returns, consider a vacation at sea. As an Owner, you can reserve an Owner cruise or a cruise via the Explorer Collection — plus enjoy a new Owner benefit level credit of up to $150.
NEW BENEFIT: SHORE EXCURSION CREDIT
If you’re an Owner in the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations® Program and you use your Vacation Club Points to book a cruise through Our Vacation Center, a travel provider for Marriott Vacation Club®, you will receive a credit to save on shore excursions. Shore excursion credit can be used toward activities and tours, such as whale watching in Alaska, kayaking the Canary Islands, or embarking on a Jeep® safari in St. Maarten. The amount of shore excursion credit received is based upon your Owner benefit level.
- Owner and Select benefit level Owners receive $75 in shore excursion credit.
- Executive and Presidential benefit level Owners receive $100 in shore excursion credit.
- Chairman’s Club benefit level Owners receive $150 in shore excursion credit.
In addition to the shore excursion credit benefit, Owners booking with Vacation Club Points or cash may qualify for combinable cruise line offers from the biggest names at sea, including Viking River Cruises®, Oceania Cruises®, Regent Seven Seas Cruises®, and more.
For bookings made with Regent Seven Seas Cruises after October 1, 2021, Owners enjoy an onboard credit for select sailings of up to $650. Check back frequently on the Our Vacation Center website, as offers may change.
To explore cruises, visit your Owner website. Keep in mind, Owner cruises are not eligible for the shore excursion credit benefit, as excursions are already included as part of the Owner cruise offer. Once you have the credit, you can book shore excursions with the Shore Excursion Group — not the cruise line. All shore excursions must be booked on the Shore Excursion Group website prior to sailing.
UPCOMING OWNER CRUISES
If Owner cruises are more your style — complete with onboard amenities, special excursions, exclusive events, and more — there’s still space on 2022 sailings, including:
- February 19 to 26, 2022: 7-night Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean® Symphony of the Seas®. Cabins start at 5,000 Vacation Club Points per couple.
- February 27 to March 6, 2022: 7-night Mexican Riviera cruise aboard the Holland America Koningsdam. Cabins start at 6,500 Vacation Club Points per couple.
