I have an offer that expires in 3 days. It is for 15-35% off (depending on room type), $300 in casino cash, and free gratuities. I was hoping someone who has booked and sailed one of these offers before can help me with a few questions.

1) Are these offers combinable with all OBCs (military, shareholder, FCD, loyalty)?
2) Has anyone booked one of these offers through a discount online TA? If so, were they able to easily get the TA discount and the % off from the offer?
3) How does the casino cash work? The offer states "Casino Cash will be issued as Free Play Credits or Free Play Chips where available." Most land casinos limit free play vouchers to bets that pay 1:1 odds only. I normally play table games like Let It Ride and Three Card Poker. Are Free Play Chips usable in these games?

Any information from first-hand experience is greatly appreciated.

The simple answer is NOPE. The Casino is separate from the basic cruise line. There is a whole different department.

The basic offer is it. No upgrades. Sorry.

Sorry, just now saw your question. I assume you are talking about Princess and if so, yes, they've been able to combine shareholder, FCD and loyalty benefits with my previous 2 cruises done with the casino offer. I booked directly through Princess. I don't think any TA can get you a better price (IMHO). The casino cash was just that, cash, that I picked up at the cashier's window by showing my letter/brochure.

NRWPA,

Thanks for the response and, yes, I was referring to Princess. I was pretty sure that the OBCs would be combinable. I usually book through an online TA. They always have better prices than Princess direct. I talked to them today and they confirmed that they can take another 11-12% off after the casino rate is applied. They are also offering a $60 OBC but it's not clear yet whether that is combinable. I appreciate the info about the casino cash. I hope that's how it works for me, too. So much easier than dealing with free play vouchers or chips. Just get the cash and go to the table.

Thanks again,
Rob (Sandy's DH)

Ended up using my Palazzo cruise certificate for an already booked cruise next spring by cancelling and rebooking (rebooked to a nicer interior) Between actually winning at the tables and the cruise savings, I am ahead several grand. It is ALL good.

Good deal muggo!

Was going to tell you, I still haven't decided on future Princess cruises yet,
from Ven/Palz offer.
And then yesterday, I get another "come & get your free Princess cruise for two" yada........ only THIS voucher is at our local casino, like 15 mins from
our house. So I don't have to go so far to get it.
Think this is the second time I've gotten one from them, but last one I let
lapse.
Its funny, you go thru years of struggling to go on a cruise..... and now you got them throwing at you. Its a nice cycle to be in.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if Princess cruise vouchers are combinable? Like can you combine vouchers to upgrade cabins, etc?

Has anyone tried doing this?

(I know with NCL vouchers you can combine Husband & wife vouchers on same cruise for a cabin upgrade. But they WON"T let you both book a cabin under your own name & bring family on the same cruise. Doesn't seem fair, if you both earned one. And you got to pay Port/taxes on everyone anyway.)

Back to my question, is Princess different with their vouchers when you have more than one, or spouse got one also?? Thanks

Bulldog,
We chose a Western Caribbean on Caribbean Princess in February of next year. We received the TA discount and the TA OBC was combinable so it all worked out OK. The only negative was that I found out that the e-mailed brochure I was referencing was a generic document. Turns out my targeted promotion only includes $25 casino cash rather than $300. But, free money is free money. I'll take it.

Since we booked, the price has dropped quite a bit but the free gratuities promo has ended. I ran the numbers and the total cost is just about a wash so I'm not pursuing it with my TA. I'll keep watching though and if a better promo pops up, I'll go after it.

Good for you anyway. How did you find out your cash went from 300 to 50??
We saw the feb 5 th cruise you are on as option, but we had already booked the 14 day on the Caribbean Princess sailing on February 19th at a great rate so we are staying with that one and just added the nov. 5th.

I called to confirm the procedure to claim the casino cash and was told that the amount was only $25. I began to protest and opened the e-mail I received with the link to the brochure. As soon as I opened the e-mail, I saw that it clearly stated $25. When I opened the brochure in the link, it stated $300 but that is just a generic document. It is not targeted to me with my name and CC number whereas the e-mail is targeted to me. I had misread the information from the beginning. It was a let down but, like I said, at least I got $25.

Does anyone by chance know how many points one needs for a bounceback cruise offer for a 5 day cruise on princess? We are booked for this October on a free cruise with $800 casino cash and am wondering if I should get an offer to book our next one for January or I should use my free inside from Tropicana casino and upgrade to a balcony and cruise Carnival .I guess I should call carnival too and see what we'll qualify for comp wise as well

Not sure if this is what youre asking...... but my Last Princess cruise I earned over 8,000 points in casino onboard. This gave me an Inside Cruise for a week, yada...... Princess only gives you about a Month to book it.
But approx a year to use it.

To be honest, I thought that Casino play should have been worth better cabin? oh well.
Were using it on another Calif Coastal in Oct.
First time I booked what I was given..... INSIDE. ha

Figure if I get offered a cheap upgrade?
Then we'll move to another cabin.
But I'm kinda Over paying upgrades for cabins if I don't have to.

This is sort of what I was looking for.On Carnival and all cruiselines I'm sure they have a criteria and I can't remember it. Sort of like over 5000 points on a 5 day cruise gets you a free cruise and 7000 on a 7 day and so on.I was hoping to find out for a 5 day how many points we needed. Thanks for the reply

Got $650 in casino cash for next cruise (but no free cabin) from this last cruise. And another Sands offer for a free cruise if I go Nov 3-13. Had to say no. So many cruise opportunities, so little time!
