Can I use pay with miles to book a cruise on Delta.com?
 
Seems a good use of miles compared to airline tickets these days. So I am assuming since it seems like a good deal that you probably can't do it.
Anyone tried it?

Bump. Kids really want to go on a cruise.

Don't know, but speaking of alternative uses of miles, they have pretty good deals for broadway show tickets in New York for 5,000 miles.

I looked into this last year and I couldn't seem to find a way to pay for a cruise with Skymiles.

There's a couple Carnival Cruise packages up for auction in Skymiles Experiences (with "The Band Perry", whoever they are).

You can buy Celebrity Cruises gift cards in the Skymiles Marketplace (4000 miles per $25 gift card).

Think I'll stick to using my miles for flights.

Why not call and ask?

Does Delta Vacations do any cruise packages?

That is the challenge for me. I live an hour away from several cruise ports. I don't need the air portion of a trip.

I looked at this for a cruise a few years back, and unless something has changed, there is no way to do it. Even if you redeemed your points at 1 cpm for AMEX gift cards, T&C of the cards explicitly exclude purchases from cruise lines.

Skymiles Cruises (which is nothing more than Cruises Only dressed up in Delta colors) will certainly give you miles for cruises (I'm getting 30,000 for a cruise later this year), but won't let you use them.

You cannot use Skymiles to pay for a cruise. However, I notice that you are a Marriott Platinum Elite, and you can use MR points for cruises.

I never knew that. Thanks!
