Among the appealing aspects of a Disney Vacation Club members-only cruise are the surprise stateroom gifts delivered throughout the voyage.  Via its Facebook Page, Disney Vacation Club has shared more than a dozen photos of items given to cruisers including a DVC edition Monopoly game.

After seeing what was given away I checked on open staterooms for the January cruise. There are still rooms available but in checking the prices I don't think they are "free" give aways. I think the prices is considerably higher for a 3 day cruise and I think you are just buying these "free" gifts. I still want to go but I can't afford the prices for only 3 days. A Cat 4 rate was over $1,000 per person for 3 days.

I would buy that Monoploy game if they start selling it though.

I don't think I used the word "free", did I? ;)

It is worth noting that the member cruise fares include cast member gratuities. The traditional minimum is $12 per person (in your party), per day of the cruise. So that's worth taking into consideration.

You're also paying for the exclusive guests and entertainment. The Facebook postings mentioned Disney artist Don "Ducky" Williams and filmmaker Don Hahn, along with some lesser known Imagineers, artists, etc.

Trouble is they don't typically reveal attendees or stateroom gifts far enough in advance to factor them into your decision. There's always some risk involved. I know some folks who have attended multiple Member Cruises over the years expressed disappointment as time went on.

People cruising in January '13 may find that they don't even receive the Monopoly game or some other item given out on this voyage. :confused24:

Oh I wasn't making a comment on the post. Mostly I meant that while they received some gifts, they didn't appear to be free gifts. No harm meant.
