MyVegas Rewards - bit confused


Recommended Posts

Repricing a cruise does not change the reservation ID number, to which in theory the original OBC applied.  I tried to add an OBC to a previous reservation that I was repricing and RCI said it could not be used as it was not a "new" reservation as it remained under the initial reservation number.  Also, the original reservation was made more than a year before the cruise date.  It seems that the MyVegas rewards are great for those booking a new cruise within a year of departure.  Unfortunately, that is usually not me.

Repricing won't make you lose it, but you may need to call back until you get a rep that knows what they were doing. Though I didn't have trouble repricing the cruise, but...

 

I had a cruise that only had the myvegas and when I wanted to do a lift and shift when it was canceled they were all telling me I couldn't because it was a "casino discounted cruise" even thought it wasn't. I only go the OBC. My friend who had done the same thing for another cabin on the cruise was able to do it no problem. Took me hours to sort out telling them over and over again I was eligible for a l&s it's not a discounted cruise, until I found someone that actually looked into it. 

 

But now with things getting back to normal just adding the OBC shouldn't cause problems.

Thanks y’all, I guess I read it as the deals that you had before you would lose......but we are just looking at general public deals, minus the myvegas, so it’s not anything secret or comped.....

 

so I’m glad I’m not working against repricing within a 30 day period (we bought on July 4) to get the myvegas to stick with us. 

 

Thanks for the help!

Not sure who you were asking, but since the wording is very clear on the fact you can’t apply both, (compared to other things that need clarification) we purchased with the discounts that they had in their sale and applied the obc to that.....

 

for others wondering, I emailed them the voucher info on Sunday, realized I put my birthday in the 1000s instead of the 1900s, emailed them to clarify on Tuesday, and they emailed me back with confirmation within about 30 min of the OBC on the account.....

I would think the TA doesn't care about Myvegas.  We did it before, haven't moved this one yet.  Probably tonight.

Just moved my cruise to a big box TA.  And I've just now repriced my cruise due to price drop.  No issues.  Since myvegas was applied by Casino Royale folks, TA doesn't care about it.

Now I’m wading into the ta waters, I checked with one before we booked and they didn’t have much to offer (others they did have offers for, but we wanted this particular one).....and I saw earlier that some people can’t put the OBC into a “group” reservation (which some people said that their “deal” through a ta was just their group discount block), so now I just should find a ta that will make sure the OBC sticks and can they reprice for us? Or would we have to contact them when we see a lower price? 

 

Maybe i I should read the pages and pages about finding a ta.....hahaha

If I use MyVegas to get a "free" cruise, I know that's for an inside cabin -- for two people, correct?

 

What costs would we still be responsible for?  Gratuities and port fees, I assume, plus of course any drinks and other charges incurred on board.

 

Can we purchase an upgrade to, say, a balcony cabin?  If not, can we use RoyalUp (if offered)?

 

Are C&A points accrued?

Should be yes to all 3.

This past weekend, used RCLs site to book Harmony CP view balcony.  Am diamond, FL resident and 55.  "Purchased" a $100 OBC reward on MyVegas.  Sent redemption email to the Casino Royale email address.

 

Got reply today they posted my OBC.  Received new Guest Invoice.

 

Will transfer booking to big box agency later this week.

 

Haven't spoken to a soul at RCL.  All online and email.
