I used the MyVegas OBC on our last cruise and it was so easy to apply. I just booked 2 new cruises (2021 and 2022). I want to apply the MyVegas OBC within the 30 days of booking. However, is this OBC similar to others in that if I re-price I will lose it? Just wondering since it's so far out, there's higher chance of re-pricing.

I have been told in the past that the cruise you are applying the credit to, must be in the next 365 days.  Nothing allowed more than a year out.  Unless things have changed.

Ugh I'll have to check. Sort of caught in the middle then, have to apply within 30 days of booking but it can't be more than a year out?

Correct.   Keep in mind, even if you redeem reward,  but it can't be used, it will added back into your account.

We have redeemed over $500 of OBC in last few years, but not recently.  Never had an issue, but maybe rules have changed.  

 

If you cant use a purchased benefit, just return it and get your gold chips back.

We tried a couple of times to use MyVegas credits, and they only apply to specific pricing rates.  Of course the ones they applied to were all much much higher, making it completely useless.

The OBC has been fairly easy to get applied ... we have an upcoming cruise where both people in two cabins have added it.

Has anyone had any luck applying the OBC with a reservation that was a casino comp room? Waiting to hear back from Royal.

I just tried redeeming point for OBC and it isn't valid on group pricing, but I saved a lot more than $100 by getting the group price. I just added my points back onto my account

Can you redeem two OBC for same stateroom/reservation (one per person, both MyVegas players). T&C seems to indicate no, but comments on here seem to indicate otherwise.

Can you use more than 1 reward? Like the 50$ and the 100$ credit? Or the 10% discount and the 100$ credit?

You used to be able to, but I am not sure if the T&Cs have changed.

Can someone explain how it works - once you redeem on My Vegas do u call Royal and give them the redemption code?

 

You will receive an email with the instructions when you cash in the points. The email address is clubroyale@rccl.com.  These were the instructions the last time I redeemed:

To complete your booking, please forward your purchase confirmation email to clubroyale@rccl.com and a guest services representative will contact you within 48 hours. Be sure to include: 1.Purchaser First and Last Name, Date of Birth and Citizenship 2.Guest First and Last Name, Date of Birth and Citizenship 3.Preferred Contact Time (i.e. Morning, Afternoon or Evening) 4.Contact Phone Number or Email 5.Crown & Anchor Number (if applicable) Reward is non-refundable and applicable to new individual bookings only and is subject to availability. One reward redemption per booking (stateroom).

This is the wording in the email today. 

 

One reward redemption per booking (stateroom). 

 

Only one myVEGAS Reward can be used per reservation.

If you reprice the bookin, its like a new booking. I had the same issue, but I just repriced and I am now under less than year for the sailing, so I was able to get the onboard credit.

I booked a cruise while we were on the ship. MyVegas said I couldn’t get additional onboard credit because I received onboard credit for booking onboard. Everything was within the timelines. Basically they said no double dipping. This is the first time this happened to me.

Coming  back to answer my original question - my Mom was able to redeem for $100 USD OBC also on our cruise. So it is one per "player".

My Vegas has no idea to what cruise you are applying the reward.  You redeem points for OBC and then email RCCL to apply it to your booking.  If it is refused it is RCCL doing so not My Vegas.

I have applied several My Vegas Reward OBC on all types of cruise bookings and never an issue.

Royal Caribbean told me last week that each passenger could not use an OBC voucher. One per cabin.

That’s interesting. My husband and I each redeemed $100 MyVEGAS OBC for our upcoming cruise in April.

I never asked. I emailed mine with the info. It was redeemed. Then a few days later, she emailed hers. We have our own MyVegas accounts.

I did the same. Got a different response than you.
