How Does Interval International Cruise Exchange Work?

The first thing you have to know about Interval International cruises is that you must own a timeshare to get started. Interval International is meant for owners to deposit their points or weeks on the platform, and then exchange it for something of equal or lesser “value.” There are a few different tiers of II membership, and each comes with extra benefits or advantages.

Interval Gold

You can achieve amazing vacations with just the base level membership of Interval International. However, Interval Gold is a step above regular membership. If you’re looking for Interval International cruises to exchange for, ask your II representative about Interval Gold. Exchange your timeshare for shorter stays, rather than traditional week-long timeshare stays. Interval Gold offers Interval Options, while allows II owners to trade their points or week towards cruises, tours, golf, spas, and even hotels.

Interval Gold also comes with VIP Concierge, a 24/7 personal assistant for travel planning. When you book an II cruise with Interval Travel, members can even receive cash back on select vacations.

Other Interval International Gold Benefits

When you upgrade your membership to Interval Gold, you can also receive a world of extra benefits. Trade your ownership for hotels, unique and exciting experiences, VIP dining treatment, and more. Golf enthusiasts will love Golf Connection, which allows you to play at some of the most prestigious courses in the Americas with almost 9,000 private courses.

Can You Use Points to Exchange Cruises?

Some of the benefits that come with Interval International Gold membership is the ability to use your points towards the purchase of a cruise. Keep in mind, your points may not be able to cover an entire purchase, but they can help you save for that adventure at sea for sure.

Become a Member of Interval International

If Interval International cruises interest you, consider becoming a member and buying an affiliated timeshare resort. Most major developers are affiliated with some sort of vacation exchange network. However, they are either affiliates of Interval International or RCI, not both. Interval International affiliate brands include:

Marriott Vacation Club
Vistana Signature Experiences
Welk Resorts
Diamond Resorts
Hyatt Residence Club

Take a look at the timeshare resales on our resort marketplace. You can find each brand for a fraction of the cost when you buy resale, and with many of the same benefits. If you’re already an owner, learn more about Interval International so you can book cruises, too!

    I own a timeshare at Simpson Bay Resort in St Maarten. I would like to swap a week for a cruise. Where can I find information about cruises available?
