I received the casino offer last Friday. We considered the 11 day Panama for the end of March, but It isn't going to work for us this time, but we have taken advantage of the casino offers. However, we've always paid a little more and got either the Signature or the Neptune Suite. Free or not, my husband won't take the inside cabin, and the free one on my letters have always been for the inside, with small charges to upgrade to each level. It's a great deal if you can take advantage of it. On our cruise a year ago, we had a Neptune through the casino offer, and someone asked how much. I told them, and they repeated to someone who was also in a Neptune, and she said she didn't believe me, that there was no way we'd paid so little.
