I was on Anthem. As stated in my original post, I suggest holding up something with your first and last name...it doesn't have to be a Seapass card. That is all.

It also depend on what ship you are on. On the older ships, you have to insert your card. Anthem you just tap your card.

She could see my points.
But, when I asked her how many points I had, she flat out said that she wouldn't tell me because, "Then everybody will be asking her, and she doesn't have the time for it." I knew I should have had the VIP sticker, that is the reason I was asking. After prying her about it, and she looked, she realized that I was correct. She gave me the sticker on my card.
Similar thing happened to us on the Majesty last year. She would not tell us our points saying "someone might hear". We never got the sticker.

UGH! Hate to be the bearer of bad news....

Just received the new Blue Chip Exclusive Offers via mail. The new offers are not great. Only one complimentary 4 DAY cruise and the percentage off sucks. FYI my tier is just below the top tier. (Sapphire) No longer worth losing that kind of money in the casino - that's for sure! I feel for the casino hosts.

I was also told they will be implementing a new Blue Chip Club in the coming months. How much more can they possibly take away from their casino guests?????????

Are you sure that wasn't just a special offer that they send out like the golf outings, baseball, tournament offers? The original information that was sent out to people offered an inside for up to an 8 day cruise for Prime and a balcony for up to 8 days for Signature.
Sapphire wasn't even one of the tiers. It was Select, Prime, Signature and Masters.

Hi - this thread is about the Royal Caribbean Club Royale, not Celebrity's Blue Chip Club, however since they are both under the same corporation - I'm not surprised that they are changing yours as well.

I'm a member of both casino programs, but haven't cruised Celebrity in a few years.

You might find other players in Celebritys Blue Chip Club to discuss this with - in Celebritys thread.

Check out the thread on the RC Board. No more double points for suites if you used a RC certificate or casino rates! I have two cruises booked and paid for, but that doesn't matter. I specifically paid extra for a suite to get to Diamond Plus.

This new policy went into effect for all cruises departing on April 15 or after. I e-mailed Michael Bayley's office and received a reply that they were looking into it. This just sucks, and may finally be the straw that sends me away from Royal.

Whoa, what? I booked an 11 nighter in a Grand Suite to get me to Diamond. Booked a year ago. You mean they will not give me double points because I got a casino rate? If they implement this for previously booked cabins, it will be my last cruise with RCI. Is this in writing?

No but has been confirmed in calls to CR and C &A. They were having a meeting about it today and many of us have been promised a communication back from Michael Bayley's office. I dont understand why they would not grandfather in previously booked cruises. Will post again if Nelson Frau in MB's office actually does email me back, as he promised.

And I am with you. If no grandfathering, I am done with Royal. No more $$ from me.

If I'm reading it right their points are only $1 per point, as opposed to Royal's $5/ point on slots. So Sapphire would be equal to 20,000 points on Royal. Much better than the benefits I've seen for Prime for 20,000 points.

I just received this message from RCI

Thanks for your patience, Mary. After reviewing the policy, we've decided our Casino Royale members will still receive double points when upgrading. I do apologize for the frustration this may have caused, and please know, we greatly appreciate your loyalty. -Val

Thanks Mary

We hopefully too will see those double points early June.
Good to see the CR community getting together and making RC, CR and C&A aware of our concerns and issues with the NEW program.

Happy Days!

That $1000 is a lot less than I use to receive and use to get premium drinks.
