3 cruises with Royal, played everyday on all of em
Liberty 2016, got nothing
Freedom, president's cruise 2017, got 100 off
Allure, last month, got 100 off (and I had to pick up the certificate myself)

on top of that, when I call to use the "100 off" they quote me higher prices than online

Casino royale is a joke

I think if all depends on the sailing and how full it is. It could go either way. However, we no longer get casino rates AND a certificate. If we use a certificate it's off the regular RCI rates and any promos they have at the time.

Nick don't get me started with CR daily/weekly/monthly changes

I've started booking cruises now after final payment and I've stop playing now once I reach 2400 points. We have 3 more 12 night sailings in the next 2 1/2 months I'll have to pace myself in the casino ��.

CR is well aware they are losing players, even some of their high rollers.
The only problem I have for the cruises over a year out is if we want a special sailing that is very limited, the staterooms we want sell out or go double or triple in price as we
Get closer. So i HAVE to book something like that early. Case in point. I just booked 9/16/19 Adventure for 11 nights from Quebec City. JS was $4,080 total. If I wait til 12 months out that will be $8,000 IF any JS's are available.

Ok thanks. I thought I had read if a certificate was used it was off full retail, wasn't sure if that changed after final payment was due but makes sense that it would depend on vacancies. This is all new to me. Thanks for your patience with my questions.

When booking after final payment, the price on Royal's Webb is the price, meaning, there are no special discounts with CR that I know of when booking after final payment.

If there's still many cabins left after final payment Royal will drops the prices on those cabins and if there's only a few cabins left in specific categories, Royal will sometimes raise the prices after final payment. Some disadvantages of booking after final payment will be the location of cabins selection and maybe only certain categories are available.

If you're interested in a specific sailing or stateroom you should book when Itineraries are just released.

They are doing away with Casino rates (at least as of yesterday decisions.) The rates will be whatever can be looked at by Royal’s sale du jour, Crown and Anchor discount, state of residence discount....The people who answer the phones at CR do take our comments back to the marketing / revenue people. For those of us who have been in the program for years we have seen the changes - not good for us. I think so many of us loved Casino cash back waiting for us. The people who answered our calls had the ability to do extra things for us. Now, not. Their hands have been tied. Royal no longer cares about how we played over multiple cruises. Now Royal wants CR only to look at what we did on past cruise - singular. If someone drops a 5 dollar bill into a slot machine they are considered CR members. If your last cruise is port intensive there is less time in Casino. Those comments also have been taken back to management. A 3 night cruise will be less time in Casino. Those comments also have gone back to management. Table players seem to be at the mercy of the dealers..how is play being tracked? Incentives have been going away... Not as good as it used to be....will things change after Jan 1..... maybe....
