I'm trying to plan out my award bookings for my 2013 vacations and plan to use UR points. SInce this is my first award booking (besides Rapid Rewards booking i made last week), I was hoping some of you experts can see if I missed anything. First trip - I'm taking a 5 day cruise out of Miami on 1/21/13-1/26/13. I like to arrive a day before because I worry about missing the ship, so i want to fly in on 1/20 (anytime) and depart on 1/26 (after 12pm). Because Carnival has a shuttle from FLL to the port of Miami, i can fly to either MIA or FLL. If i fly to FLL the increased shuttle cost is $64 for two people roudn trip. Here are what i think my options are: 1. Book using UR Points SAT to MIA (55,054 UR points) 2. Book using UR Points SAT to FLL + shuttle to port (68,494 UR points + $64) 3. Transfer points to Southwest - book SAT to FLL + shuttle to port (44,162 points + $15 + $64) 4. Transfer to United book SAT to MIA (75,0000 points no saver awards avialable +$20) 5. Transfer to United book SAT to FLL + shuttle to port (75,000 points + $20 + $64) 6. Transfer to British Airways book SAT to MIA (no award flights available) 7. Transfer to British Airways book SAT to FLL + shuttle to port (no award flights avialable) So did I miss any other options using UR points? Should I try finding flihgts from another airport, say Ausint or Houston and drive there to fly out. I only have UR points so that is my only option. I couldn't find any awards on BA, but I'm also not 100% sure I knew how to look cause i also couldn't find award tickets to LAS. Second Trip - Cruise from San Juan, Puerto Rico in September 2013 It's to early to see award availability, but here are what i think my options are 1. Book using UR points 2. Transfer to United 3. Transfer to BA Thanks!
