Do they offer complimentary drinks while gambling like Las Vegas??

Not unless you have gambled with them before and have reached some certain level of points in their casino program.

When you get to 2,500 points they will put a sticker on your key card for free drinks in the casino.  If you have 2,500 points in the program period before you cruise your key card will have Prime printed on it and that is good for free drinks in the casino and other perks.  If you do not have 2,500 points once in a while (not often) the casino host might come by and offer a free drink.

Good Luck!

Definitely not like Vegas where you can pick up and go to another casino if you want. You are a captive audience on the ship. As noted above, if you have accumulated enough points you can get free drinks.

I think that your reporting is a little “off”.  😊

 

The program operates on a yearly system and their year runs April 1 - March 31. 

 

If you accumulate a minimum of 2500 points by March 31, you are Prime in that next year of April 1 to March 31. 

 

And the word Prime is printed right on your SeaPass card. 

 

Higher levels have a higher point threshold, but function the same way.

I seem to remember that someone suggested a way to determine your points for the current "program period".  I am master from the previous period, but am curious as to where I am this period.  Anyone know how to find that out?

How do you earn a Point?

On slot machines it’s $5.00 per point, on Video poker it is $10.00 per point, table games...anybody’s guess.

You can play through money...I.e. win, play, win, play...it’s not necessarily cash you buy in for. 

FYI 2500 points gets you 2 free cruises, one from a list of sailings (or casino discount towards one you pick) and another that you pick yourself the following year.

Not to mention all the additional offers that pop up throughout the year. 👍

Explain where I'm "off".  I would like to make any corrections.

In December after I was over 2,500 points on day three, the Casino Host came over and placed a Casino Royal VIP sticker on my card and told me it was for free drinks in the Casino and to see him by the end of the cruise for a free cruise certificate.  So at the end of the cruise he gave me my free cruise certificate and we used it for an October Cruise where my card printed out Prime.  The Casino Host also came over to me on day one and two and got me free drinks as well as a player next to me.

If I'm off or wrong this never occurred, but I assure you I was there.

A little confused by what you are saying, being prime already gets you free drinks as well as no fees from the casino, just because the host had a drink sent to you doesn’t matter you could have ordered it for free anyway. 

FYI since you achieved prime in Dec (assuming 2018), you will remain prime until March 31, 2020. You should have also received another free cruise offer up to 8 nights sometime after April of this year. If you did not call Casino Royale because you earned it with your Prime status. 

If I am missing what you were asking/stating let me know and I will clarify.

I just wanted to know where I was "a little off" on my original post.  Please let me know so I can make any corrections.

I was not Prime yet when when the casino host was taking care of my drinks for the first two days, and on the third day I exceeded 2,500 points and he put a sticker on my key card for free drinks in the casino.

Booked my free cruise for this October.

Thanks

Ok I understand the host offered you drinks prior to 2500 points. They do that when they see people playing a long time. It’s within their discretion to do that.
