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 😞

Gonna agree, Carnival must be real popular right now cause their prices are high! Comparing offers this year to last year, this year is 'about' $250. pp higher!

To Be honest I did try URComped got a comp cruise with RCCL after giving Carnival a break because of the sucky casino, however I miss Carnival in a weird way. I like the drink set up with Royal since you dont have to wait 15 mins between drinks but Carnival although I lost a fortune in the casinos its still the FUN SHIP.  Considering doing a premier cruise this summer...might try MSC through URComped not sure what to do

Same here, we sent our Carnival offers into urcomp, and the offers seem pretty good, likewise we've been comfortable with Carnival, the cruisers, the food, my time dining, our benes, etc., but the prices from the casino club are just too high. We cruised MSC a few years back when the Divina first came to Miami, we liked it, but they don't have my time dining, and I'm done being told when to eat!-)) Ship, cabin, food, service, everything was good. At the end of this year, MSC is supposed to open up their private island off the coast of Miami, might try them then!

How do you send your offers to this urcomp place? I just came off a 6 nt. Conquest sailing, spent PLENTY of time in the casino and didn't get offered anything. The pit bosses and hosts were very tight :(  They did buy me a few drinks in the casino, but no DOU card. I made friends with a guy who was playing nothing but green and he didn't get a card until the 4th day of the cruise, despite getting beat up by the tables to the tune of 3-4k  (I personally saw his account summary when we were discussing losses)  :(  Might be time to look for a new cruise line to lose my money on.

It’s  strange. 

We left Carnival about 3 yyears ago after 20 cruises. Nothing against Carnival but just wanted to try different lines. Anyway I got a flyer in the mail so I called and got some casino offer for Balcony cabin on the Horizon 6 day for $999. Plus &500 OBC.   So I’m actually paying $500 for   a balcony on on a 6 day cruise.  I never got that good of a deal when we sailed and gambled regularly

I think I made a mistake not taking the $500 ob credit.  I booked the Getaway and now I am reading you don't get much.  Should I change my booking?

Will be cruising on  my first casino offer soon.  It was "Getaway" with code P8V.  Anyone know details about this that they can share?  What should I expect?    Cruising with hubby.  Thanks for any help!

If your Getaway offer included "Fun Play", you'll need to make a visit to the casino cage to redeem it.  On our last cruise is was paid to us in the form of cash which was an unexpected surprise as we thought it would be loaded on our account to play on the slots or table games.   It's a good idea to bring a copy of your offer, as we have had occasions when the casino did not have record of what were were to receive, but honored what was printed on the offer we received after showing it to the casino host.

You may have also received on board credit, this can be used for anything on board the ship including using toward play int he casino.  Also of note is that the Drinks on Us card is only good while playing in the casino.

Hotstreak Offer(OV comp and $200 Funplay) VS Dealers choice (Interior Comp and $200 Fun play)

 

Besides the obvious room comp which should we choose

Dealer's Choice normally comes with the Drinks on Us (in casino), I am not familiar with the Hotstreak offer does it have the same?  Also do both also offer OBC in addition to Fun Play?  We have had offers where one may have included OBC but another offer did not.

Several cruisers on an Ultra cruise told us to get better offers you sometimes have to walk away for awhile! Gives them an incentive to try to get you back!

You go to their site and upload your offers from your computer!

To save them on your computer you need a printer/scanner, scan them into your computer, at least that's what my wife did for us!

I booked a casino rate, but rate didn't say that it included Drinks on Us (only $50 on board credit).   I assume this means that there's no drinks on board card coming..

You don’t need a computer, printer, or scanner.  You can just take a photo of your offer with your phone or iPad.

I believe that if you walk away from the cruise line for awhile, the offers will get better.  I have not cruised since 2017, but I received a very good Elite offer recently.

Can you tell us what kind of offers you received before you walked away in 2017? Were you a big gambler?

Can you explain the way you used your phone to submit to urcomp, i'm not that informed in phones/cameras etc. Thanks!

I would receive some casino cash and discounted cabins.  I mainly play .25 video poker and my casino budget is usually around 800.00 for 7 days.  I don't walk off of the ship with any gambling money left and I did not hit any jackpots.  I have not heard of urcomp until yesterday, so I have not had a chance to use them yet.  I am a gambler, as any money that I win goes right back to the casino (unless I hit a big jackpot, which has not happened yet).  

 

Yes, their plan did work because I was not planning on booking another cruise until 2020.  But the deal was too good to pass up.  They offered me an Elite deal with a free balcony.  They might still come ahead since I will be bringing more money for me to gamble with, it is a toss up since the free drinks anywhere will be included.
