Everything Casino Offers -- Premier, Getaway, Pack&Play, and other Casino offers

Recommended Posts

The last paragraph is a load of bull beyond belief. They are not handing out 49 free cruises based on 100 dollars of play per cruise :):):) But whatever makes you sleep at night ;p

excuse me? who on earth do you think you are? and i suggest you learn how to read a little, or maybe pay more attention before jumping with spite to say something, because someone may have gotten a little more than you.

 

i said i havent gambled more than 100.00 in the last 1.5 years ( that means one and a half not 15) , and that is a fact. Additionally i said in 49 cruises, meaning that is how many i did with carnival... in 49 cruises, i havent paid for one in a year and a half, i did not say i got 49 free cruises in a year and a half, nor did i say i got 49 free cruises

 

... i very clearly stated i did not pay for a cruise in the last year and a half... do the math, that would be close to 3 cruises per month every month of the entire year and of the entire half year 18 months 3 cruises per month... if that were the case i would have said i LIVED on a cruise ship???

 

i guess you dont sleep at night, the thoughts of anyone getting something like that obviously upsets you a little? WOW why in the name of God would i make that up so a bunch of screen names could read it???

 

dont be jealous.. good grief I dont need to show you anything, but when you call me a liar ill take three minutes of my time to show you what you may need...with that type of attitude you are not worth more than a few minutes i might add... i have a copy of every cruise i have taken free.. and if you need those copies they are yours for the asking ( i tried pasting them here but i got an error message i had 19 images in the message and im only allowed 6.. bummer

 

i also have the same offer everyone else has now... pay 100 and get 100 OBC for two free cruises up to 2020 Oh and i have the horizon booked for a B2B Christmas 2018 FREE pay 100 get 100 OBC...

 

if i had a win loss statement i would show you that too.. but i dont.. canadians dont pay tax on winnings.. i would love to show you the 13 jackpots i won on one 7 night cruise i guess thats bs too.. 13 handpays on one cruise.. and yep i started with a minute amount of money... oh wait.. i have it posted in fb pics of the jackpots.. most of them.. didnt think to take the first few as i didnt know i was going to win 13.. note teh times on the pictures, and dates, some are within half hour of each other... thats bs too?

Reminds me of people who tell me that they got last minute cruise for $99. Then you ask how they found that deal they can't provide any details. Or it's always a friend of theirs who gets $99 deals. I'm able to get to Florida port the same day and have never found or been offered cruises last minute at significant discount.

Glad to see this thread and how all offers vary:

 

I sailed on Pride on 2/4...7 day from Baltimore and had booked it as a Premier. It was around $1100 for a balcony, booked as a SINGLE. I got $200 cash and DOU from the beginning. Lots of gifts, perks, Steakhouse comp, I got called twice for the 1/2 hour drawings, one I missed $300..(I ran off to get a sandwich) and another I was present and got $350. I won $475 on Dodge the bull. I was paid off twice by attendant and the machine I played wouldn't die....LOL. I had 11,000 points at the end and came home way ahead.

 

I was offered the repeat casino cruiser offer and went back again on 3/4....same cruise. Went with a friend and it was about $317 each. DOU from Day one but no cash. Even though the cruise was a Premier I was told I wasn't eligible since I had taken the repeat offer and the Premier offer had expired. I did get some comps, Steakhouse and won another $300 on a drawing. The same machine this time payed SPIT...LOL. I had 12,000 points and came home a "loser." I did get a call 2 days before the cruise and was given a FREE premium balcony vs. an inside that I booked.

 

Again, I got the repeat casino offer and am doing the Pride again...14 day Journey cruise on 11/4. Includes DOU, and cash. I found out that it is also a Premier but I won't be a Premier guest, again, same reason as the 3/4.

 

Some people who were on the 2/4 and 3/4 were given the same repeat offer and barely had 500 points so I really have no clue how they work it out sometimes.

 

Four years ago I got the Pack and Go offers. One was an 8 day on Splendor for $75. I got it on Monday and was on the ship on Saturday...LOL

 

We'll see what happens next!:D:D

I know what you mean...

 

Sometimes I don't even tell people that I cruise with what I paid when we are on the same cruise. Sailed with people on Sunshine 2 years ago and to this day they don't know I cruised for port charges and taxes while they paid over $1000 each.

 

Check out UR comped. They match your offers and cruiseline status.. I did MSC Divina last October for the first time and that was totally free and they matched my RCL Diamond status so I got even more perks.

Good for you!

 

Keep in mind too that on MSC you don't have to be actively playing in the casino to get drinks. Just walk up to the bar and get whatever you like, anytime you like. I didn't find that out until the 3rd day...LOL

 

Friends of mine are going again on April 28th...

Hi Pam,

 

I get similar casino comps to what you are describing on both Carnival and RCL, as well as MLife land casinos. I have been uploading every offer I have gotten to UR Comped for over a year, and nothing! Am I doing something wrong there?

 

Thanks!!

Hi Steve i played in the 100k in 2016. I didnt win the seat i had it transferred to me.

 

I didnt do well, and i know the person who won had not played blackjack before, they too had it transferred to them . won 50k or at least that is what she said.. so i have no reason to disbelieve.

 

i cant comment on the good strat cause i dont have that myself.. but there were over 200 started.

Thanks a lot Newfie! I actually wondered how many people were going to have them transferred. My family has won several seats for BJ and Slot tourneys in the past and not used them, assume other are in the same boat (no pun intended). Did they have a lot of activities related to the tourney? Were the slots tight? I'm going with my parents and they are exclusively slot players. After my last cruise, I'm done on cruise ship slots but know they won't listen to reason, maybe just maybe I could convince them they are going to be tighter than normal this cruise and get them to lay off a bit of play.

I don't know...LOL...I registered and had nothing to send since I threw everything away. Then I got a Carnival offer and uploaded it to them and a few days later, got some offers to land based casinos. A week later, I got cruise offers and then got an offer from RCL on Anthem from Cape Liberty and some MSC. I was on Pride when I got these and then got an e-mail that my offer had expired and to request another offer.

 

I've yet to send them my most recent offer. I wanted to try Anthem from NJ since there is no flying but have since booked Pride again for Nov.

 

Keep trying...:)

LOL! Heck yeah I 'll keep trying! Free is free! My problem is the casino's keep sending me such great offers, I book through them then don't have any more vacation time to do more! Ah well, maybe I'll get the timing right eventually!

 

Thanks for the info!

MSC status match is great, but you must routinely cruise with them, or you'll start over, and the match only works once!:D

I am waiting also! We're booked for an early September Premier, but haven't seen any updates for new Premier Getaways for (hopefully) a short Fall cruise. Maybe next month!

 

I've emailed the casino club, told them others were waiting for the ultra's to be announced, told them about this thread, trying to put a little spark in their backsides to get the dates out!;p

Kinda wish you hadn't done that. The subject/point of this thread is to share casino offers we have all gotten and try to figure out what it takes to get them, what offers are being made, etc. Because the casino is so hush-hush about them. I realize this thread has gone totally off topic. But it's certainly not a thread about when the dates of the Ultras are going to be announced. :o

You're comment makes no sense!:confused:

Ultras are 'offers' just like any other casino offer! And posters are trying to figure out how/when to get them!

Perhaps you should have stated on your first comment, no comments about ultra offers!

To expand even more on that excellent answer and get into the specifics . . .

 

Put your card in the slot machine every single time and leave it in there while you are playing. Hand your card to the table dealers every single time you start playing (not only when you are getting chips!!)

 

SLOTS

You get 1 point for each $2.50 you have played through the machine.

500 points = $1250 played through, 1000 points = $2500 played through, 1500 points = $3750 played through, etc, etc

 

For example, if you put in $20 and lose it all, you will get 8 points. If you win $50 on that initial $20 and keep playing the initial 20 plus the 50 in winnings through the machine, then you will get 28 points. OR - ever how many points, based on ever how long all that money lasts if you keep getting small winnings along the way and keep playing them. If you hit it big and won $1000 on that initial 20 and kept playing it through the different slot machines in the casino over the course of your cruise, you would get 408 points (or more including small winnings along the way). Even though you actually only ever put in $20 of your own money.

 

You need 500 points for $5 back given as slot play, 1000 points for $10 back - both automatic on the machine. You need 1500 points on a 7-day cruise to get the first on-board comp which is the Drinks on Us card. More points after that will get more notice and more comps like deliveries to the room, steakhouse, spa, etc. 5000 points will give you DOU card right from the first day of your next cruise as well.

 

TABLES

It's all about average bet x time played. They don't rate it as "points" like are earned on slot machines, but to keep it simple I am going to use "points" to make my comparison. I think tables/games with higher odds (worse for you) will earn more "points" ?? Also, I think faster games may earn more points (for example, if roulette plays more spins per hour than blackjack plays hands played per hour) ?? But not sure, this is my guessing. The information on table games is not readily available online. I think you need approx 200 points for DOU card on table games, but I am NOT sure about this. IF this is accurate then .....

 

$10 per hand x 20 hours = 200

$20 per hand x 10 hours = 200

$25 per hand x 8 hours = 200

$50 per hand x 4 hours = 200

$100 per hand x 2 hours = 200

(per hand would be whatever they rate as your "average bet" whether thats betting $10 hand of blackjack, $10 in chips on roulette, $10 on craps table, etc)

 

NOTE: your casino "points" have nothing to do with the sailing days you have with Carnival. For example, if you have sailed 2 cruises each 7 days you will have 14 VIFP Points, or if you sail 4 cruises of 7 days you will have 28 VIFP points (and you will be Gold rated). https://www.carnival.com/loyalty/benefits.aspx

 

 

Great explanation, thanks :), but Yikes! Does this means you have to spend $3,750 at the slots just to get a drink card?

Can someone please tell me what Global Casino Services is? I tried looking it up on line, but could find anything.

 

Also, does gambling on one cruise carry over to a following one, or do you start from scratch with each new cruise?

 

Thanks bunches

Global Casinos is the company that "runs" the Carnival ship casinos, in addition to others. Sadly, casino points don't roll and you start from scratch on each sailing.

$3750 would be the money you put through the machine and not that you spent $3750 of your own. I normally take $700 for a 7 day cruise and easily hit 5000+ points. You do win sometimes. ;)

You start from scratch each cruise.
