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

Recommended Posts

My husband had about 15,000 points on our cruise in April. On that cruise we did receive comp dinner at Cucina (I don't eat meat so steakhouse was not as appealing), we had a nice comped bottle of wine at dinner, plus some sweets sent to our room. I don't recall any sort of bounce back, but he did just get Premier and Getaway offers. We chose an 8 day Premier in Jan on the Horizon. He is getting $500 Casino Cash plus reduced rate for room.

 

One question for those that have been on a Premier, my husband and I are cruising along with my MIL in the same room. I've seen mixed answers about who gets his perks. Does he get to take a guest with him? Can he take 2?

 

I gamble but not as heavily and this is my MIL's first cruise. I'm sure there will be lots of time spent in the casino. ;)

I got a Casino Rate . My PVP said I would get $40 Casino cash, but there's nothing on my paperwork. I know there's a space for OBC on that offer, but they don't give a confirmation on the casino paperwork

 

I emailed the casino wwithmy VIFP # and confirmation #, but no one has replied yet. Any advice?

When you go to the casino tell them at the casino guest services, you have casino cash and they will have your name on a list.

Hi what details are you meaning? Currently have 5 premier and 2 Elite cruises booked. Have the ultra offer but did not book cause its not free ( LOL sorry but true) the premiers and elite are all free just pay taxes and fees

 

I can give you quite a bit of info on any of them.. if you could let me know what you are wanting.. no problemo :)

I've booked my first elite for December. From what I've read; know on the Ultra cruises everyone invited gets to spin a wheel to win a prize. Do they do that on the elite cruise as well?

Nope. There are just drawings and a couple of wheels, but no guaranteed prizes.

 

My Elite was wonderful but the one time I wasn't in the casino, my name was drawn and I wasn't present for my present so I was "out of here."

We play quite a bit, several hours each night. Ranging between 6-50 a hand at blackjack, but when I email after to see how many points we have, they always say none. Even though they do scan our card each time we buy in. Do you have to request to be rated? We get the casino rate of PZ1 or whatever it is. It's discounted fare, but no freebies or anything.

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.

All my offers expired a few weeks ago. I was waiting for the next round. They never came?

 

Has anyone received new offers?

I'm thinking they dumped me, lol

No, I have not received any new offers. I do still have a few Premier cruises left to take.

Hopefully, I will get some by then.

Yep, received offer in the last couple weeks. Email and mailing. First time for Premiere casino offer for me, but none of those dates worked for me.

Getting ready for our first Premier at the end of August. Here is my question if anyone knows. Do they do the drawings the same as the regular drawings? Specifically, every Premier guests' name goes in the hat for every 100 points you have or is it just that you're a Premier guest and your name is in the hat to be drawn same as everybody else's? I hope that makes sense. Thanks in advance!

 

As for the earlier question, I still have the Dealer's Choice through Aug, 23rd, some Premiers that came out not too long ago through Sept 12 and a free balcony for Premier Plus on a limited number of sailings through(I think) August 16. Took advantage of that sucker ;)

Casino cash is now offered in place of an inexpensive trip! The cruise prices now (Ultras, Premiers, etc.) are just about what the non-gaming public pays! The only good deals left are the 'bounce backs'!;)

That's why in my opinion, there are leftovers not sold in all the categories!

We got the Bounce Back offer after our last cruise. I was really disappointed - the only cruises offered were 3,4 and 5 day and none of them were "free" even thought the offer said free interior.

 

Bounce Back offers in the past were much better, but the last 2 I've received were, like I said, disappointing.

One question for those that have been on a Premier, my husband and I are cruising along with my MIL in the same room. I've seen mixed answers about who gets his perks. Does he get to take a guest with him? Can he take 2?

 

I gamble but not as heavily and this is my MIL's first cruise. I'm sure there will be lots of time spent in the casino. ;)

 

Hope it's not too late to answer. I just got off my first Premier. Can post some pics of info of the handouts later. I booked the room for me and a friend, but made sure to book a room that could accommodate 3 for the same price as 2, except for the taxes/fees. He later asked if I'd let his gf come, and I asked if he was sure he wanted her to go. He said yes.

 

So back to your question, my friend got the perks. He got the casino drinks, and he couldn't even buy her a Cheers! package, without being charged for everyone in the room, and there was no point in buying 3, when 2 of us had the casino drinks.

 

The offer was for a free interior, $200 with $200 onboard credit and $200 casino cash for me. We each paid $100 for the room, and the $100 onboard credits were in mine and his. She paid $129 for the room, which is normally how I've seen it in the past.

 

I gamble heavily, moreso the time spent playing, than the dollar amount in betting. If she hadn't gone, I'd probably done other things on the ship with him, but since she was there, I spent most of my time in the casino.

 

He played $20 on Roulette, for about 20 minutes. His name got called for one of the drawings, to play a game, but he wasn't there because it was 11:15 pm, and I forgot to remind him to show up for that one. My name didn't get called at all.

Would love to see the pictures of the Premier handouts.

We leave on our first Premier in a week!! :D If you have time to post any pictures or more information I would really appreciate it.

Just returned from a 7 night cruise on Miracle and had over 7500 points. Host comped a dinner and wine but no bounce back or ANY VIFF offers. No premier offers. Kinda pissed.

Sorry no offers were made but I have had that many points many of times and didn't even get a comped dinner.

 

Did you have to ask host for that?

Just wondering if you have taken your Premier Plus cruise yet? I have booked the one for September 15 on the Conquest. It is now one week away and I still can't print my luggage tags or boarding passes. I called Global Sales and they said I would be able to print documents shortly before the cruise. Did this happen to you? If you have taken your Premier Plus cruise, what was different from the regular Premier cruise?

Has anyone taken a Premier Plus cruise? Is it different than a regular Premier cruise? I booked the Conquest Premier Plus for September 15. Was able to check in online, but unable to print any paperwork. Carnival told me paperwork can't be printed till a few days before. Anyone else having this problem?

I haven't heard of Premier Plus, but I think I have seen two levels higher than Premier - one is called Ultra, and I don't remember the other name.

 

I just got off my second Premier cruise, the biggest gift was Player's Club embossed passport holders and luggage tags, both seem very good quality.

 

I haven't had a free cruise offer in almost a year, although I gamble more than I did previously so I don't think the bounceback offers are based soley on points. Three years ago I got a free Alaska cruise offer (most expensive of the available free cruises when looking over the calendar of free cruises) at the end of a free cruise. Back then I played $10 avg bet and gambled five of the seven days, probably three hours each day. I just got off the Horizon betting $20 avg bet and gambled eight of eight days, probably four hours each day. I got a PC4 (I think) - reduced rates on limited sailings with only $100 casino cash.

 

Time to go back to landlubber vacations! :)

I haven’t taken my comped Premier Plus cruise yet (November), but when I booked it, they made sure I understood that these cruises are booked under a group cruise booking, and that nothing can be printed until a few days prior. No idea why, but I wanted to let you know it’s standard for the Premier Plus apparently. :)
