Not true. Chips are replaced with real chips.

 

Actually, it is true. If you place a $6 bet with fun chips and win you don't get the fun chips replaced. You keep them right there for the next hand.Your winnings are real chips.

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...

 

 

I will admit, I am jealous! To get two free cruises, I could only dream.

 

Besides that, I believe you.

This was also our first Premier and all of the people we talked to had been on many were disappointed too. It would be nice if Carnival sent out a Premier survey and not just the regular cruise one. Did y'all get a gift on the last night? Congrats on your wife winning!

She was excited because she rarely gets her name called for drawings. We did not get a gift the last night other than the free drink coupon which was not a premier gift. I probably should have approached the casino host about the steakhouse but they have always come to me in the past. i though they might just be completely booked. I was disappointed in our good ole boy Texas legislature who apparently passed a law preventing the drinks on us the first night of the trip. Even though I have had it in the past this was the first time it was not allowed the first night. They are always trying to save us from ourselves.

Thanks! What sailing dates were those for? When will the next round of Ultra offers come out?

I was mistaken about the date. It was actually MUCH earlier, since we booked the Ultra on May 30th! My husband is a very active players club member and we got an early access email with a mailed invite following. It listed 8 Ultra cruises ranging from 10.20 to 12.15 from Miami,Port Canaveral, and Galveston. We chose the 11.17 sailing on the Horizon from Miami. Our offer was for a free Interior room and $500 Casino cash. This particular offer included a special drawing on each of the Ultra cruises. Three winners will get to meet The Shaq in 2019 (I'm assuming he will be on several Carnival cruises where you will get to meet him, but it wasn't clear what it entailed). It also noted that these Ultra cruises will have SHAQ themed events.

 

On the Ultra cruise last year we went in December on the Vista and for the expensive gift my husband won a Samsung Smartphone who's value was $900! So he did well! There were lots of Apple IPhones, laptops, and a really nice Samsung 65" Ultra HD TV which INCLUDED installation!

My offer code I just booked was for F3P. It was an Ocean view with $500 casino cash and $200 OBC. I upgraded to balcony for just $50 pp more. I don't know what the codes mean but mine is the only one I have seen so far with an F, looks like most start with P or O. I also just emailed my PVP as she booked the primary guest as my husband, not me. The offer was under my account and I want to make sure I don't lose out on any perks with his name first. Anyone have experience or advice on this?

I play only slots. Spend quite a few hours in the casino every day. I have not been on Carnival though since 2015. I get too many free balcony on NCL and Mini suite on RCL offers and not many from Carnival. This is one of the first few I have gotten. The PVP used to call me all the time but I told her I won't pay full price basically for CCL when I'm getting taxes and port charges on the other 2. Lo and behold, I got some good offers

Did you have to pay anything for the Oceanviewroom besides taxes, fees & gratuities?

Can I ask how many points you average per cruise? If not no problem, lol. We are close to Galveston so it's easier to cruise Carnival otherwise we would try NCL for the first time or go back to RCL (its been a long time since we sailed RCL).

My husband doesn't gamble at all, just me. I can average anywhere from 5000-8000 points. I spend a good amount of time playing slots. I live near Baltimore so Carnival is easy too but my land based casino, after only visiting it once after it opened, started giving me free cruise certificates. Once I use them, NCL and RCL directly comp me. RCL better than NCL. NCL however has the free at sea so we always choose free drinks and specialty dining.

iamnewfieMaybe inexperienced casino cruisers will believe what you are posting, however those that frequently receive casino offers know that you do not receive the same amount of casino cash on a premiere offer as you do on a premiere getaway offer.

This thread is for honest posters

Actually, this is quite possible. Some Getaway offers do in fact come with the same amount of casino cash as the Premier offers. I've posted a screenshot of my current offers.

 

PS. This month I booked 2 Elite cruises from the one offer (how awesome is that?!) but it only comes with $500 in funplay not casino cash.

I get $1000. on both Premier and Ultra, but on Getaway I get $500. But I notice, the more money they offer you, the higher the cabin price. We used to get less cash, but the cabins were much lower priced. :classic_blink:

I think you're right. The higher casino cash offers don't seem to be free cruises. And now I'm wondering if the Ultra cruise is worth all the hype. 

I actually have a friend on the Ultra Cruise right now. Her name is Nita. Blonde, raspy voice, big personality, practically lives in the casino and apparently her and her friend brought a bunch of matching outfits 🤣. If you happen to see her tell her Stella from facebook said hi!

Check your offers everyone I just got a free balcony for up to two cruises today  in my email and snagged a nice cruise for March for port charges and tax. It's $200 deposit with $200 on board credit

I think the offers lately have been very good. I am going next week on the Horizon, rec'd ocean view for $200 with $200 obc (single) and $500 in cash however I upgraded to a balcony. In my offers right now, I have a premier special edition with a free balcony, Dealers choice, getaway and premier with a free oceanview.  I like they no longer do bounce back offers where you have to book within 14 days, I rarely used them but now it seems I can book any time, which I would rather do.

Hi! I don't take my Plus until November on Conquest, but I've heard 50 cabins max, and lots of themed activities. Everything else is typical Premier. Again, that's just what I've heard. Looking forward to your review when you return! Good luck and calm seas!!

We have a Premier Plus booked on the Conquest also for November 24th.   Looked at luggage tags today and no priority like on previous Premier cruises.  I called and they said no priority on luggage tag but they will have a special line for Premier Plus guests.  Hope that is true, never seen a special line for it before.
