ELITE : PEARL printed on Xpress pass

Recommended Posts

Looking at our Xpress passes  I noticed ELITE :  PEARL printed on both. The ELITE is self-explanatory, but I wondered what the PEARL means?   Anybody seen this?   Thanks

Strange. Although DH plays the slots on cruises hes hardly a big spender limiting himself to $20 a day. He never plays on land. Thanks for your speedy reply

If you have played a hand on a table game or 1 spin on a Celebrity ship in the 18 month period from around 1/1/17-6/30/18 then you would have 1 point and then be Pearl status.

Ah!  That explains it, but I feel a bit of a cheat......we only spin to use the Captains Club vouchers, when one of us chooses red and the other one black so we can't lose (unless the ball lands in the green slot which it has occasionally)

I think the limit may be around $5.00 even on slots.   My spouse and I both played our free promotional -  I lost all $5.00 immediately and my spouse won and replayed the money in the slot until gone.   He is Pearl and I'm not.

We have “Pearl” on our boarding pass also and have never gambled in the casinos onboard other than the slots a few times.  When we do, we always use cash, so I don’t think they would even know who we are, let alone give us Pearl status.  Go figure!

We got that too - I thought they were renaming Elite.

 I only play the slots, with cash, but I do use my seapass card each time - so they do have a record.

ahhh .. thanks for the explanation ... I have Pearl on my express pass, husband does not.  We too use cash for slots on occasion..I do recall putting our key card in the machine while we were using it.   Interesting ....wonder what this status does for us once we are on board?  We certainly don't spend more than 20 or so dollars per cruise!!

Interesting....  DH has it on his, and I do not.  The only time we have done anything except pass through the casino was to participate in a Slot Pull on our SA cruise 2 years ago.  We did win a T-shirt.
