Hello.

 

Over the last 5 years, I would routinely get offers from Carnival for free cruises (we know they are never free). I have taken advantage of these (at least once a year) and as recently as April 2017. I have also always gotten the end of cruise letter offer for another cruise that must be booked within weeks.

 

All of a sudden, I have not gotten a single free offer since that cruise. All offers are for reduced rates and a piddly amount of casino cash. Even the premium offers are no longer free.

 

I am trying to determine if they have changed the program for all people and they don’t do free cruises - or if I have had my classification changed and no longer qualify. (My table play always gets me comps in casinos).

 

My family is looking to book a 2018 cruise and I was hoping to get it for free.

 

I have 60 days at sea with Carnival but have never looked at another line because of the free offers. I need to figure out if I need to look elsewhere (if I am paying, I should try a new line) or just wait and see if an offer comes my way.

 

Let me know if anyone else has had similar occurrences over the last 6 months.

 

Thanks,

I currently have a Pack N Play offer from the casino. $25 pp for an interior with $50 OBC, but only on certain cruises thru December, must be booked by 12/4/17. This is the 2nd one I have gotten this year. I have taken 2 cruises this year, one in which I did not even enter into the casino. The one I just got off of in October I only had 2200 points.

I can tell you that they are still giving bounce back offers for free cruises at the end of your current cruise, based on your play. Also as the previous poster indicated I say the $25PP rate as well.

Ah, it looks like you are having a similar issue as mine, which I just started a new thread over. I did have good offers in June and booked for Feb 2018, but have to cancel and am trying to find a different sailing but now don't have much to work with. Nothing new has come in since June for me or my husband, except for the Premier cruise dates offer for me. I'm trying to figure out if it's because I'm already booked, or if it's a big reduction for a lot of people. And I have only cruised once before, in 2014!
