2014 Member Cruise gifts

One of the highlights of attending a Disney Vacation Club members-only cruise is the package of exclusive merchandise left in each cabin.  Here is a look at some of the items this week's cruisers had to squeeze into their luggage.

Custom "Scrabble" games, parking signs, pillows and trading pins are just a few of the items created especially for the "2014 S.S. Member Cruise."

While the DVC members-only sailings on Disney Cruise Line cost more than a typical Disney cruise, planners hope to bridge that cost difference through unique merchandise and guest appearances which are not available elsewhere. Participants in this week's cruise were treated to appearances by Disney Legends Marty Sklar and Tony Baxter, two days at Castaway Cay and special events throughout the sailing.

Nice gifts. What is the item in the square box? Is it ear buds?

After hearing about the guest speakers and entertainment, I have to admit I have been thinking about doing this cruise in 2016.

Yes.

The bag is an insulated cooler bag and the item the ear buds are on top of in the second picture is a folding beach mat.

I went into Ebay to see if anyone was already trying to sell the DVC scrabble game. I couldn't find it, but I'll check back in 48 hours.

I also went into the Princess and DVCMember websites to compare prices for the next DVC Member cruise in May 2015 to Alaska. The 7-night Member cruise cost about $3,500 per person for a Category 5C balcony cabin. A comparable 7-night itinerary on the Princess in May 2015 in a mini-suite cabin costs about $1,650 per person.

Are all the gifts and entertainment offered on the Member cruise worth paying about twice as much for a comparable itinerary? Like I said before, I'm still on the fence when it comes to a Member cruise.

We are booked on the 4 day cruise in August 2015. I have 2nd thoughts about it a lot. It is just so much. But after seeing the speakers and gifts it gets me excited about it again. But I still wonder if it is worth the money. We could do a lot of vacationing with even half the amount we are going to spend.

The pillow was not included unless some guests took them
