Offers received from Club Royale (Royal Caribbean)

Recommended Posts

Must be cutting down on staff. Called on hold waiting for rep was 15 minutes in when call disconnected. 2nd attempt already 10 minutes and still holding. I can’t recall ever waiting more than 2 minutes. Ughhh

So it looks like non-Americans don’t get event offers. I guess they don’t want my money.

I wonder when it changed. I know for a fact back in November 2014 we got emailed a free cruise offer. We could not take it as we were already booked on other cruises and it was past final payment.

So that was a long two hours on the phone. Not sure it was worth it. The Casino knocked $253. Off my cruise to adjust going from a 750 discount to the 1000 certificate. However they repriced me which they said was a 3$ difference in cruise price plus a loss of my $75 onboard credit. Well given my 2 hours on the phone I asked to speak to a supervisor. This was mostly because I had used my credit against a low price bev package and didn’t want to pay higher. They transferred me to resolutions which reapplied my $75 onboard credit. So I’m am a happy girl. Minus the 2 hours I spent on the phone of course.

Talked to a host last night and asked him about the new program. His take - It’s going to be great, especially for people who take numerous cruises per year. This is because now everything is calculated on your last cruise and now it will be cumulative. No other details given.

I was also talking to a host, and yes MUCH better for those who cruise multiple times a year, but if you miss cruising for a year you start off from SCRATCH again...not so good :(

I got an offer a week ago for about 20 free sailings or $1500 off one of my choosing. I already had a booking so I called and removed my 1k certificate and applied the 1500. They did say they have more flexibility with the certificates. I could still call within a year of issue and use it on a different booking. I was happy. The 1500. Off is the highest apply how u want offer I’d ever received.

Hopefully they will start to send offers to Canadians. Any updates on when the new tiered system will be in place yet?

I received the Enchantment and Mariner offer email and it left me confused. Background: I am a relatively small stakes gambler (minimum bets on UTH or 3 card tables with a little slots mixed in). My end of cruise certificates have been $400 off, $500 off, free inside, and a free ocean view. Confusion: Why offered Junior Suite on these sailings? This is not a complaint just seems odd and leaves me wondering if some parts of the new program have rolled out. All 4 of my RCL cruises have been in the past 16 months.

I just booked a cruise on the Adventure repositioning cruise from San Juan to Bayonne. I think I ireceived a really good price on a GS through Club Royale, (May 5) total of $1425 for 2. This includes tax fees tips and insurance.

Mine was for ocean view so yours was a better offer. I fell out of the Casino VIP graces for not playing on Presidents Cruise last September. Seems one had to maintain 1000 pts to keep Status. Hopefully new program will be better.

I know someone asked a while for a listing of CR events and I found this magnet they sent to me months ago.

For those of us receiving emails for a comped room, CR said these offers are NOT part of the new program and they have been sending them out every 6 months. Still no updates on their new program yet [emoji45][emoji45][emoji45][emoji45]

We’ve been waiting 2 years for a new program , what’s another few weeks, right [emoji50][emoji50][emoji50]

I did maintain status with my December, 2017 cruise with over 2500 points but did not receive a offer.

I’ll be on Harmony in 3 weeks and this was a GS at Casino rate so curious how they will look at my play.

I doubt that the fact you have a casino rate would have any impact.

Typically, in the past, if your cruise was a Casino rate Cruise, you would get a Club Royale sticker. On my my recent cruise, a full ship Charter, I didn’t get a sticker because my previous cruise, I didn’t play.

Is is possible you didn't get the sticker because it was a charter?

Totally possible. Casino Host told me I didn’t have a 1000 pts on my previous cruise although the 8 cruises prior to that I had well over 1000 pts per cruise.

Don't you just love the new program ? Only as good as your last cruise regardless of how well you may have done in the past. Totally ridiculous.

Not sure what you mean here, the new program is cumulative points for a year(ish). In the OLD program, you were only as good as your last cruise!

 

I think the *new* program will hurt us less frequent cruisers. Here is a small example:

 

Lets say I take a hiatus from cruising (or RCL cruising) for 13 months (that totally includes a point accumulation period). I will only be entitled to get complimentary drinks at the casino and the 5% fee waived after I've accumulated 1000 pts on that cruise. What if my first few days are very port intensive, and I only play an hour of so each night for the first few nights? I'll have to now eat any 5% fee and pay for any drinks from the casino until I reach the 1000 pts, even though in the past they would have looked at the fact my last cruise (eg: RCL gaming history) I accumulated 5-7k in pts. Whereas now, as soon as I get on board, based on my last cruise I'll get the 5% waived and free drinks immediately!

 

I liked the tiered system in concept, but it definitely benefits the people who cruise more frequently due to the fact that your tier resets annually! Just my $.02

Yes, but you will still need to accumulate at least 1000 points on your last cruise, in order to qualify for the sticker. At least, that is what I was told.

It makes no sense to me. I understood how many were using past play to get discounts and other perks but that was not me. Generally I had 10k +’pts on each cruise. One cruise, in Europe, that was very Port intensive, leaving early each morning and returning late. We just showered, ate, and crashed, ready for the next full day. We were taking Royal Excursions, with Michael Bailey. Probably spent more on these than money I would have dropped in the Casino between the two of us.

 

If they count my avg play over the timeframe stated, I should be alright.

As was mentioned in the Casino Program Changes thread, some of us are not receiving promotional offers from Club Royale, and in that thread, those who had received offers were sharing the offer details with the rest of us so that we could find out whether we qualified for them as well.

 

I don't receive promotional emails from Royal Caribbean for some reason, but I do receive USPS mailings, so I found out about this offer.

 

Used to get free cruises all the time, lately not much, that's why we've spent most of our gambling time on Carnival lately!

Spent the day in the water at St Martin, I was off a Carnival Ship Casino cruise, the guy I was talking to off a RCL Casino cruise, and he told me this,,,,

RCL will look at your last cruise, so,,,,book a bunch, and gamble big on the last cruise of the one's you booked to maintain a good rep with the club!

RCL still offers the most to the biggest gamblers, but changed their Club Royale a while back cause they were losing mid range gamblers to Carnival and NCL, who run clubs that don't look at one cruise, or even your last one, but at the last year! NCL runs the simplest, most open, pts accumulate over a year period, the level you reach lasts for a year while you accumulate pts. towards next years level!

As we see it, Carnival is the easiest to keep, NCL is the most open, and RCL gives the most if you're a big gambler! But remember, 'squeaky wheel', you gotta say something if you feel shorted!

Just booked a 3 night junior suite off of the new offer I got yesterday. Total cost was $252 for taxes, port fees and grats.

 

Not to shabby.

We sail carnival and royal both. With the way it has been we know exactly what we will get from royal due to knowing if we get so many points we have an inside, ov, or balcony. With carnival we can get those same points and get absolutely nothing.

 

Sailed on both in january and the royal was a 5 day and got ov and carnival was 7 day with more points and the offer was crap. We still get other offers from royal like the egg hunt next week in balcony and october allure in balcony. Get cash and premiere offers from carnival so it does kind of even out if offered cash too. Royal has been better for us.

It is my understanding that a Carnival point is $2 in the slot machine. A Royal point is $5 in the slot machine. 2 1/2 times a Carnival point.

That is true. I had way more points on Carnival for the 7 day than the 5 day on Navigator and I got a OV for Royal and nothing for Carnival. It is really an eye opener to read the Carnival casino fb page at all the unhappy people. I will still sail Carnival if I receive premiere invites (Caribbean) with cash that equals to an almost free cruise.

We are actually scheduled for the RT to Hawaii on Carnival in January. Really no special deal we just want to go to Hawaii without flying there.

 

I should add that in my previous post I should no t have said same points. But even with more points I didn’t even rate an inside.

I’ve mainly sailed with Royal for the last 15 years. Thought about branching out but it is hard to give up the casino benefits. What everyone is saying isn’t very encouraging.
