    25k points? it takes $8 for 1 point on tables so you gambled through $200k? how much did you put down on the pass line? and how many hrs did you play ?

    So just 2x odds? 😞 do you get points for the odds bet? ie: $10 passline, $20 odds should get you 3.75 points per roll if the casino counts all $30 of that bet
  3. i've never sailed Celebrity but im on the Edge next week. on the Celebrity app, it says on embarkation day that I get $100 free play if i join Blue Chip. but i already joined Blue Chip on the website. anyone know if i will get the $100 free play?

    Op said it was a 15day cruise. the MDR menu's get recycled so you're going to see the same menu twice. speciality restaurants add variety to the MDR and buffet, which would be welcomed on a long cruise. 7 different MDR menus + 5 day sdp = 12 days. 3 days leftover to go back for your favorite MDR dishes. also, OP -> if you havent already, buy 100 shares of NCL stock. on a 15day cruise that entitles you to $250 obc! you can use that obc to buy the sdp BUT only while onboard. so you pay a $10 penalty for buying while onboard instead of online. (you cant pay for anything you buy online with obc.)

    biggest % drop is going from 3day to 4day. next is going from 4day to 5day. 3rd biggest is going from 7day to 8 day. so 4day/5day/8day (in that order) are your best values. im assuming you're on the Bliss since you mentioned Q. (Q is only on the Bliss.) there are 6 speciality restaurants: cagneys, le bistro, Teppanyaki, Q, Los Lobos, and La Cuchina. you can buy the 6day package and try each one but the 6day sdp isnt one of the 'value' packages. i personally would skip la cuchina so that leaves 5 restaurants, thus 5day sdp.
  7. from here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2592990-pearl-tampa-to-new-york-april-7-18-2019/?do=findComment&comment=56838108 So you have to pay extra even for carry on luggage/overhead bin use?

    i did the math. best bang for the buck is the 8day sdp and thats what i normally buy on long cruises. that's because the jump from 3-7 day is $15 per day. the jump from 7day to 8day is only $10. if you dont want that many days, then get the 4day. it's the biggest drop per meal (% wise) over the 3day. sdp includes appetizer and dessert. yes, u can have sdp and your partner doesnt. you're not supposed to share appetizers/dessert but noone's going to nanny you.

    1) so you were getting points for you play? 2) if you bought in for $500 + $100 promo, you could withdraw the $500 no problem?

    going to calculate how much you put through the machine. most people do 8 spins per minute on a slot, on avg. 1 hr = 500 spins at .25 per spin, you put $125 through the machine. in land casinos, the way promo slot play works is you play though the free amount once and you keep everything. so if $100 promo, then you just need to put $100 through the machine. on celebrity, apparently it's keep playing till you lose the promo chips. trying to figure out if that's also true for promo slot play. 1) How much were you able to cash out at the 1hr mark? 2) how much did you buy in for?

    When were you up $300? 1st 10min of playing? after an hour of playing? thanks Knighton! going to cancel my promo order. since my cruise is comped from the casino, i rather have the points so i can continue getting future free cruises. free cruise is worth more than $100 promo. :) edit: hm.. i ordered 10 $50+$5 promo chips. i could only cancel 9 of them. the 10th isnt showing up?? and i only got 9 email confirmations of canceling. edit2: called them. the csr said he sees 10 cancellations on his screen. no idea why i only got 9 cancellation emails.

    if you bought $500, you get $100 bonus chips. when you get the chips, do they give you all $600 in promo chips? or you get $500 regular chips and $100 promo?

    including slots? so if you bought $500 slots, you get $50 bonus. all $550 is considered promo? so you have to keep cycling that $550 though the machines till you lose $550 before you start getting points? let's say the machine is set to 85% return, meaning you lose 15%. $550/15% = $3667 you have to cycle $3667 through the machine before you start earning points??? if so, that's 3667 points you are giving up for the $50 bonus!
