My husband usually gets an interior, and I get a balcony. The list above for interior has so many more cruises on it than the one he received in October. They must have different sheets for different people or cruises??? These new sheets have more cruises on them than I've ever seen. We are doing the New Year's Eve cruise on the Navigator. It is only a 5 day cruise and I probably won't get the 4800 this time. I probably will be on that list not to get free drinks for the next cruise which is on the Allure October 2018.

We are getting off the Navigator and getting on the Carnival Glory for a premiere cruise the next day. I have already decided that I am not spending the kind of money I usually do because all reports from casino cruisers say that they are getting upwards of 10,000 points and not receiving a free cruise. I can spend the same money in the casino with Carnival and Royal and at least I get offered a free balcony with the points I get with Royal. The number is there (4800) with Royal. Carnival hasn't and won't tell anyone their formula for receiving free rooms.

I got 3600 points last week on oasis and received a cert for an ocean view cabin or $750 off any other cruise, so did mum so we put them together and just booked a balcony cabin on allure for $350 (taxes and grats) the lady in the casino asked which type of casino guest I was? I said I didn't have a clue lol so she looked up my account and gave me a free drinks sticker straight away when shed actually told the people in front to come back when they'd reached 1000 points on their card, a guest I was talking to while playing said she wouldn't get a free cruise till she reached 4800 points??? When I said no it was 2400 she said it was a diff scheme? Maybe she was a referred land casino customer or something?

Maxed out the points by Day 6 and booked the 9/21/2018 on Explorer while we were still at sea! Gotta love WIFI calling to the Casino line. LOL.

 

Glad that we did. We got the last Jr. Suite upgrade on that cruise (one left but being held so they say) for $1,000!

On our last cruise, Presidents Cruise on Freedom September, it was a very Port intensive cruise so I only had time and energy to play one night. I received only a $400 Certificate. Don’t recall my points but I know it wouldn’t be my normal.

 

On Brilliance now, when I meet the Casino Host I was no longer on his CR VIP list. He checked and said I had fewer than a 1,000 points on my last cruise so I was dropped from the program.

Troy, this is very concerning. I had hoped that they were somehow cutting the VIP program old timers a bit of slack but apparently that’s not the case. Very unhappy to hear this.

Wishing you the same 😀

On a side note, Andy is currently on Freedom performing 😟 Besides the 3 Production shows, I hope you have some good Entertainment on your sailing. Andy would have been perfect on your sailing.

 

When you get on board the casino host will be Giancarlo from Liberty, nice guy and he's coming on board when we get off on 12/14. The assitant casino host is Denisia, she's a sweetie :D and deserves to a Host.

We're going to miss each other as you get off :( one of these days we'll be on the same sailing once again 😀

Thanks Linda - Not sure if we are even going to the producition shows this time. Who is the singing group on your cruise? Do you know Andy’s schedule for next year? Who is the CL concierge? Next cruise we have booked is Adventure out of Puerto Rico - ABC islands April/May. Thinking about somethiing in-between...

Our Tribute band was a Led Zeppelin band. Each sailing has a different Tribute band. Since we only have 2 days left for our sailing, I'll see if I can find out the Tribute band for your sailing, not promising though.

 

The Concierge in the CL is Francisco, he's another sweetie :D

 

Just spoke to Andy yesterday on FB and he said he doesn't have his schedule yet for Royal. I do know Anthem's Golf Event is on the May 26 2018 sailing, which Andy wasn't aware of. I'm almost sure he'll be on that sailing.

Happy holidays to all and best of luck. It's sad that we no longer get any benefits if we book something greater than 12 months out. We get penalized for having too many cruises booked (well SOME of us). Sure, they can apply a cert or offer within 12 months of sailing but by that time the price probably went up so high that a certificate of $1,000 doesn't help much. Bottom line- if I have a quick and decent win at the table, I walk. I don't care if I don't get a certificate since I can't use any anyway due to so many cruises booked

Happy holidays to you and Barb :D

 

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

 

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 :o I'll have to pace myself in the casino 😟.

 

CR is well aware they are losing players, even some of their high rollers.

Hi Linda, Thank you for posting the lists. When booking after final payment with a $500 cruise certificate, is the price Casino Royale uses as a base then typically lower than the full retail price because it's after final payment?

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.

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....

When booking with CR, is it possible to use a FCC? I have read that the deposits required are now back to $100 pp so I would like to use one while booking with CR.

 

On a positive note about CR. I called yesterday to make final payment for an upcoming trip. I talked to a lovely lady named Sarah. She had to talk to a supervisor but was able to get us switched to an accessible room at a $200 discount. I was a happy camper. Katherine

I believe you have hit the nail on the head from my recent experiences.

 

I play Table games and seem to end up on the roulette table mostly. On Roulette I buy in to get real chips and not colors. Last week they made me buy colors, so my chips were $5. New dealer comes up, I have four colored chips on Outside first 12. Dealer sees me place bet. Says nothing, then spins. My first 12 hits. He starts paying out other winners and then with his finger flicks my chips, my bet, off the table towards me and pulls the marker. I was ripped. This wasn’t an honest mistake, it was rude and not appropriate. I called the pit boss over and asked him to remove the dealer. He did. I had a good run going and this was just bad karma to me. I choose to retire after the next spin. Didn’t get a certificate although I played a fair amount.

 

I didn’t get my status because on very port intensive cruise on Freedom in September, I failed to reach 1000 points.

 

My last play was on Brilliance.

Sarah is awesome. She is one of the best CR reps. I’m always happy when I get her.

Today I tried to book Allure 7 nights for Thanksgiving 2018 and as I mentioned before my last play 26k points... CR said that they will be able to comp me ONLY balcony (4,800 points) and for JS and need to pay 1,300 extra. (Price for balcony $782pp and JS 1,899pp)

Cannot undertand their math at all .... any logic???

What kind of play did you do to accumulate 26k?

 

Also, I would call back and escalate. Your situation isn’t normal.

I was just told by the host that cabin comps can also be given away based on your actual losses. Does anyone know what the formula is for this? This explains my last comp. I had about 2000 points from tables but got a comp balcony. I estimate my loss was around $3000.
