This is the response I received:We just received exact same response (thanks to this board for tip). Only they said they credited $25.00 to our cruise coming up in a week. Not sure if it's for the casino or just in general, but who cares, I'm grateful for any freebee!
Thank you for contacting the Ocean Players Club!
You are eligible for bon voyage package at the value of $50! We will place your details onto our guest list. Have a wonderful voyage!
Does anyone know if they would offer anything in advance for an upcoming first-time cruiser that has a high rating at another well known land based-casino? I am a Diamond card with Harrah's. Just curious.If you are a diamond level with Harrah's, you should book NCL through their Casinos at Sea (CAS) department. If you do, you will get a substantial discount on the booking PLUS you will receive in your stateroom upon boarding a Player's Card attached to which is a free drink certificate allowing you complimentary drinks in the casino while you are playing. In addition to that (and it's a very nice perk indeed!), you will ALSO receive lovely little treats sent to your cabin during the cruise (i.e. chocolate covered strawberries, imported cheese platter, hand made chocolates, etc.). Last but not least, based on your play, you should receive money off of your cruise folio at the end of the cruise.
In fact, I don't even like mainstream cruising but I cruise NCL primarily BECAUSE OF their wonderful casino perks to players at my level (and as a diamond I'm sure your level as well). And, of course, they really do have some of the friendliest staff at sea!

Yesterday's mail brought me a $100.00 casino cash coupon from Ocean Player's Club.I was wondering if anyone else had gotten "coupons". I'm glad you got one too.
This too was a surprise for me, as I haven't cruised since 2007.
Yes, gotta love Carnival.
My husband received a letter from Carnival with a Casino certificate attached in yesterday's mail. It was encouraging him to book a cruise before September 30. We are already booked on Conquest for 10/31/10. I read everything on the certificate and could not find out if it applied to new bookings only. Does anyone know if he can present the certificate when we board and get the credit applied to his account with the casino? It has his Player # and name on it. TIA
Call the Ocean Player's Club (1-866-299-5859) and explain to them about your upcoming cruise. I got the certificate 3 weeks before my cruise and they are honoring the casinocash.

TIAMy cruise was already booked, so I too was wondering if they would honor it. I called and they told me "yes" it would be honored. It was booked before the cutoff date, and I am sailing before the deadline date. You will be good to go. I also read every word in the letter/certificate and there is nothing there that says anything about "new bookings only". Have a great cruise.
Good luck all Mike
My next cruise is on Princess which will be my first Princess cruise. Has anyone else received benefits between Carnival, Princess and HAL? It look like the OPC card is good for all of those lines.
I am a predominately blackjack and craps player, especially on cruise ships so I am wondering how or IF i can join the players club and how it works. My wife plays slots but usually penny or nickel slots and never enough to get 1,000 points.
ANy suggestions on how to be recognized by the hosts on board and get these phenomenal opportunities?
Thanks a million
We would like to extend a Bon Voyage gift for your upcoming sailing on the Legend.
