Offers received from Club Royale (Royal Caribbean)

Yes, NCL charges the $20 per day admin fee on each comp.  I've been getting great comps from them this year (Haven), so it's worth the $140 a week (plus port charges of course!)   On the other hand, I have tons of offers from Royal but I just cant get myself to book.  I just don't feel the love from the hosts in Royal casinos.

 

BTW, on a whim I called Celebrity Blue Chip (haven't sailed with them since 2017 so I no longer have tier status) and they offered me a veranda on the Summit next summer.  I know they no longer are "officially" reciprocal with Club Royale, but I wonder if they can still see my Royal play?

I don't think Blue Chip analyzes Club Royale member play history. The changes to Blue Chip are terrible. 

 

Have you heard about URCOMPED? We did one cruise (Celebrity Edge) with them and had a good experience, so we booked another cruise through them in March from Singapore to Mumbai on Crystal Cruises. This will be our first time cruising on a 5* cruiseline and felt this was a great way to try the premium cruise experience. Unfortunately if you're a NCL fan URCOMPED doesn't work with them. The majority of their cruise offerings are on Royal, Celebrity, MSC, Crystal.

I always wondered how URcomped worked? If I get  a free oceanview or interior do they match it somehow?

Basically you create a players profile with them, and you need to disclose pretty detailed information on your gambling habits. You also send them copies of your current land based casino comped offerings and whatever cruiseline based casino comped offers you have. They will then send you offers for comped cruises on cruiselines you haven't played on. They also have offers with land based casinos such as The Golden Nugget in Vegas and others in the Bahamas.

 

In our URCOMPED account we get offers from Royal but we haven't tried to actually request one through them because having booked cruises directly with Club Royale I don't think Royal will approve offers through URCOMPED. Having said that I was surprised to have done a URCOMPED cruise on the Celebrity Edge (their newest and nicest ship) this past April when we were on a comped inaugural cruise on the Edge in December '18 via Blue Chip. Then again we had no other Blue Chip cruises booked, and prior to the Dec. '18 cruise it was about 18 months from the last Blue Chip comped cruise.

FWIW: Just got call from friend that completed cruise on Allure. She earned an inside cert. Went to Next Cruise. They had sale on balconies December Oasis I believe. $200 upgrade to a balcony plus the tax. That was her and her husband.

There are some great upgrades available on some sailings.  Good for your friend on their almost free balcony cabin.

Earlier tonight Casino Royale rep said Dec 15 is now fully booked for them. Dec 8 is open and inside to balcony upgrade is $322 total for 2. Guarantee is $288. This is Oasis out of Miami. Wow !

 

Back to "fully booked". The rep explained that the magic computer keeps track of % of ship bookings they have done. At some point the magic computer shuts them off.
