I used Amex points for a cruise on Princess a number of years back and the points listed was for 2. Call the Rewards number and confirm. When we went the number of points listed was for a certain category cabin, we cashed in a few more and got a better cabin.

Like others, we use our amex cards for EVERYTHING and then have ooodles of points to use. I have never used my points for cruises becuase I usually use them for the air tickets to get to the cruise.
They have this really cool new feature where you can use the points in the traditional way (change point into miles for the airline that you choose) or you can pay your bill for any ticket using points...so great.
I agree, their customer service is great!

I don't know if I did it wrong so FYI, try it both ways, I cashed 300,000 pts in last summer. I bought the cruise on my card then called amex for credit and they only gave me a $2200! I was bummed because our trip was almost $ 3600 (5 of us, in the summer) - check out your options first. you can also book it on the amex website and apply your points right to it.
Booked my cruise with my AMEX card thru a TA. I have used AMEX points for airline tickets many times but will have to check the point conversion on the cruise.
But I would like to know if I can transfer some points for Onboard credit. If I would get OBC I would do it in a heartbeat. I read in another posting that Bank of America customers could transfer points.
