Cruises for Marriott Vacation Club Destinations Program Members
The settlement agreement provides class members with reimbursements for a portion of the money they paid toward cruise bookings. Class members may receive either:
- a 50% cash refund of the cruise lines’ non-commissionable fare,
- Exchange Program PlusPoints for 75% of the cash value of the cruise lines’ non-commissionable fare, or
- 75% of the cash value in an ICE-branded Gift Card that can be redeemed online.
In addition, the companies agreed to change the Exchange Program to allow members to use points to pay for the total cost of cruises (except for the government fees) and to include any non-commissionable fees in the “cruise fare” amount on booking confirmations.
