I've got to book it by May 10th and travel by Nov 6th... it's good for up to 10 days, for "ANY CARIBBEAN, COASTAL, MEXICO, ALASKA, HAWAII, OR PANAMA CANAL SAILING". Sadly there are no Hawaii sailings under 15 days.. I would have done a one way from Vancouver to enjoy all those sea days! Perhaps some of their comps are for longer cruises where it could be used.
I do not know what the comp criteria was..I won't talk dollars, but I was in the casino every night after dinner for 2-3 hours always playing a table game ..I may have skipped 1 night. Maybe the average time was more than that ..timekeeping is harder at night when you've also purchased the unlimited beverage package.
I was just stunned and thrilled when I walked into the casino on the last night and the host came over to me and personally handed me the letter. A wonderful surprise.
Another casino regular I talked to who was betting at least 2-3 times as much as I was was comped a balcony cabin plus $1,000 in casino cash.
I asked the host about paying to upgrade the cabin because I don't like inside cabins and he said it's definitely possible, and often inexpensive...so that's why I came here searching for some price guidance. I have no idea which cruise I'm going to choose yet but I was wondering if anyone knew:
1. Is the availability of these pretty reasonable where there are at least a few cabins on most every cruise unless it's a holiday peak spring break/New Years, etc? Or do they send you a "take it or leave it" list?
2. I know the regions are set where the comp is allowed... and I'm greatful with what I've got. However..I just got a Princess Summer Sailing brochure in the mail with very steep discounts on their Mediterranean sailings..meaning some empty boats. I've never been on a Med Cruise... sadly I think terrorism is taking its toll on European tourism this summer. So, what do you think my chances are of using my comp on a 7 day Med cruise instead?
