I have the exact same offers right now,  well except the dealers choice is up to oceanview-. I missed out on the Elite cruises, by the time I checked they were all gone. I did book 1 Dealers choice on the Sunrise to Bermuda over the summer so have 1 left. Might book a 4 day in May for a friends  bd. We shall  see- Good luck to you!

We got an email today with some new Premier dates and while looking at them I noticed something called 

PremierSE or Special Edition cruises and have never noticed them before.  When I click on check eligibility it goes to our offers page and just lists what looks to be the regular Premiers.  Does anyone know anything about these Premier Special Edition sailings or how you get the offer?  Thanks.

Just got off the Brezze on a premier offer didn’t really save too much in the room cost balcony was around 1900.00 for 2. I was to have 500 casino cash my husband 100. Upon checking at the cage it was not cash as we have previously received it was uploaded to our cards. All and all between the 2 of us spent around 8000 in the casino I left with about 9000 points husband around 5000 points. Bounce back offer was a joke 50% off casino rate interior room already checked no discount on balconies. In my opinion the premier cruises have more real big spenders than a “regular” cruise therefore the better bb offers will go to those that wind up with the 30000 and above points. I saw many of people with that kind of points. Very disappointed will back off cruising for a bit. Maybe they will want me back with a better offer maybe they won’t we will see.

I also received the 50% bounce back offer off an inside cabin from my recent Conquest Dealer's choice cruise.  Pathetic, and dissapointing.  I had way less points on my NCL cruise, and recently received a free cruise offer for an inside cabin from them for 12 sailings in Feb., March and April.   Even upgrading from an inside to a balcony (we always cruise in balconies) on NCL costs less than the CCL offers.   I just booked Conquest again for March, and skipped the 50% offer, and booked the Dealer's Choice offer.  Same exact price, and at least I am getting $200 to spend in the casino.  I have been skipping the Premier cruise offers, as I find the casino is jammed packed on them.

Depending on how much money you play. Money in.  More money in better perks.  People get free cruises and all expenses on ship comped. All food and bar, and extras.

Do not know how much they gamble, has to be a lot

I believe tipping helps in terms of getting the Drinks On Us card. Last cruise I was playing $5 tables games so there was no other reason for the pit boss to even fart in my direction much less rate my play. The first night of the cruise, I hit two straight flushes within the first hour at three card poker, so I started putting $1 each hand on the three card bonus for the dealer. Probably 3-4 hours of play later, I had a DOU card.

If you have offers for money, then you should get them.  Just check in with the host when you get to the casino.  

 

Sorry, but I can't help with the SE question.

My two cents... Last year I went on 3 premier cruises all comped free room. Gambled the same as I always did but after the last one never got a free comp since. Got the casino discounts plus free play but they are horrendous. Guess i was spoiled. I think like one person said they are full of bettors and taking only heavy bettors for the free comps. That being said i also sail RCCL and they have upped their game and comps. Same amount of play and you get one free cruise a year plus have been sent 3 and 4 day free cruises on top of that along with heavy discount cruises. I will lay off Carnival for awhile and see if they want me back after people stop accepting their bad offers. In the mean time I have RCCL and URCOMPED. I have 30 carnival cruises so its not like I was a newbie or using them for their offers.

Agree, we are canceling 31 days of planed cruising with Carnival later this year because of the casino offers! The offers from others are just much better!

I did not see that anyone replied to your question.  First I would say, to go onto the Carnival website.  Go to Manage, then VIFP - on the left you should see,  My Cruises,  My Benefits,  My Profile  (click on My Profile) - Top middle (click on Contact Settings) - there are 2 boxes, on the right - asking if you want Snail Mail or if you want Email  (OFFERS).

Otherwise you can take a screen shot of her offers to upload to URComped or use a Snipping Tool to get those Offers uploaded to them.  I hope this helps...

Thanks Jill, I will give that try.

I think all lines do it to some extent.  I have been a loyal RCCL gambler for the last 8 years but my offers with Royal have been horrendous lately!  Same amount of gambling.  I wouldn't say my offers from Carnival are GREAT, but they are better than what Royal is sending me.  Still...I'm willing to sail if someones willing to give it away!

Well not quite 30 Carrnival cruises for me only 19 but with the last weak offer post Premier I am taking a break from Carnival and giving URComped a try.  It was easy and we are only paying port taxes for spacious RCCL balcony cabin with free drinks for both of us in the casino and no fee on cash withdrawals.  They are much more responsive to emails and calls compared to the oceans plays club.  

 

Cheers and and good luck everyone.

Just got off the Dream Premier Cruise and DH got an offer.  It says get 35% off casino rates on interior rooms.  Use rate code F6R.  Is that all you get with this rate?  Thanks.

I have priority boarding for a getaway cruise in April and I have an 11:30-12:00 check in time.

Should I arrive at the port (NOLA) earlier than 11:30?

Yep, the offers are not very good, you can get better with other companies right now!

Hopefully this will change when everyone getting these offers realizes this, or newer larger ships with more cabins to fill are ported in the US!

Hi CruiseMomTX, I just booked my very first casino offer cruise and it's the Premier Getaway on the Valor, like yours.  So, I really don't know what to expect as far as the "surprises" in store.  I know that my husband will also get the DOU card because the offer said "and a guest".  Are there certain hours you must be present in the casino for all the giveaways and drawings?  Is there a welcome aboard cocktail party and is my husband invited too?  Any other tips or hints you could give me would be greatly appreciated since this is "uncharted territory", lol.  But, I'm super excited!!!  Thanks.

"We also both got emails today saying we can book a Spring Ultra Cruise on Dec 6 so will try to patiently wait and see what sailings and dates are offered.  Does anyone know what the previous Spring Ultra information was and how many sailings there were?   

 

We did our first Premier sailing in Sept and then a Getaway in Nov that my husband won in Aug on the Dream.  I think we enjoyed the Getaway more.  Better casino hosts, we saw a fair amount of payouts $10,000, 2 for at least $8,000 or a bit more and a bunch of smaller ones myself included for $2400!  It was a Getaway and we didn't have our bag in the cabin with DOU card and event schedule so got that in the casino.  We just happened to go to the casino and there were other Getaway people standing around asking about a welcome aboard party and not sure if there was supposed to be one or if it was in the casino but the 2 ladies that were the casino hosts had the bartender come over and take orders for free drinks for about an hour and introduced themselves, etc..  They also said since we were sailing from Galveston and DOU cards wont start until the next day just show the bartenders your Getaway lanyard with DOU card and drinks will be taken care of so that was awesome!!  We got to know a bartender Mark and tipped him well and were never thirsty the whole week!!  We were on the Valor and had awesome service.

In your cabin there should be a goody bag with the list of "events" drawings/times, etc..  If it's not there just go right away and ask for it from the casino.  I don't think ours listed a cocktail party like usual but they still kind of did one in the casino, the 2 casino hosts introduced themselves and bought drinks for the ones there for about an hour.  Yes your husband is invited and I think gets to take part in the drawings but not sure as we were both invited guests.  There are sometimes multiple drawings a day and you have to be present to win or they draw again.  I don't think I still have the list but if you look on other Getaway or Premier reviews the list of events is somewhat similar.  Have fun!

Got the same offer after my 2/3 Dream cruise. When I looked to see what kind of pricing it would be, it wasn't very good. I was just able to book a 6 nt. on Celebrity for less than a 6 nt. on Carnival with the discount code during the same time frame :(
