Sail n Snow

New email from Casino Royale - We can't wait to welcome you back onboard — please enjoy our best offer yet

Recommended Posts

I wonder if it has anything to do with whether or not you upgrade your complimentary offers or just sail for “free”.  We always upgrade to a full suite, buy the UDP and refreshment packages.

Got the free interior offer last Friday.

 

Called Sunday to book the Symphony in November. Added two kids for free with only port fees and expenses. Paid a modest $12 to upgrade to a neighborhood balcony guarantee!

 

Get this...an OV balcony upgrade would have been ~$1000, and to upgrade to an interior that would've fit 4 people was ~$500, crazy! We got really lucky with the neighborhood balcony guarantee upgrade for next to nothing. I think it's just hit and miss based on availability at the moment.

From what everyone is reporting about points and offers, it actually looks totally random.  I have as many or more points than some people who are saying that their offer was oceanview balcony with $200 freeplay.  Mine was interior with no extra $$$.  

 

 

Mine was Junior Suite and $300 free play....I can't use it....or rather I can't use it since I am on 'Holiday sailing".

Tried again this morning and still can't book Odyssey. Same thing for Symphony, only a CP balcony for Will try other dates and or ships. Am happy for the offer , was just hoping for an ocean view balcony this time and willing to pay for a reasonable upgrade too.

Hubby and I are both Prime and did not receive the offer 😞  Maybe because our last name starts with W we are further on the list.  Fingers crossed 🙂

 

We are D+ but that does not seem to be making any difference.

Check clubroyaleoffers.com as both hubby’s and mine was there when I checked today. No email, just on link above.  I bet yours will be there or coming soon!

Nope not there.  I very rarely get the emails so I always check it a few times a week and have been checking a few times a day since I started hearing about this offer.  Fingers crossed that it comes eventually.

 

We are booked on Liberty for 9/20 at the moment using an offer than came out before the 💩  hit the Fan.

sorry if this is already posted in here.. but if you add upgrades, like let's say, add 2 people and upgrade to a balcony, is the full balance due at booking or the remainder due at 90 days?

 

Thanks!

When you book using a casino offer, whether you upgrade or not, the total booking $$ is due at the time that the booking is made.

We were excited to get the offer. Unfortunately due to work and family obligations, we can't do a full week. SO, I asked if we could do a weekend Bahamas cruise. NOPE. That's not the Caribbean. Bummer.

Some who are choice and barely set foot in the casino got JS's with $300 freeplay. I'm signature and got nothing.

Signature here and got nothing as well. Did you ask your host about it? Sent mine an email... nothing yet.

 

What was funny is my best friend who went on the Cuba cruise with me June 1, went into the casino with me (kicking and screaming) put $20 in a dancing drums machine and won $860 after about a half our of spins at .88 cents. She immediately cashed out.. gave me half and did not spend another dime. She has not spent money with Royal before in the casino.... SHE got the offer for 20SUN04.... WTH?

Just got off the phone with casino and booked one of our offers.  His and hers.  He had offer for balcony with $200 freeplay.  We booked 12 night southern caribbean cruise on Anthem for Dec 7th.    We booked spacious ov balcony and was ready to pay upgrade but he put me on hold and came back saying he could do that cabin with the offer so we only had to pay $308 for port taxes.  

Now we have to figure out what to do with my offer. 

We were supposed to be on Grandeur this week so this offer came at a perfect time.

Then in a couple weeks we will all be figuring out what to do with prime / signature free annual cruises.

Stay well everyone!

We recieved the offer.  And I've noticed the spike in pricing for November sailings from when I checked 6 hours ago to now.

I booked online, received an email reply stating they have a reservation pending and to call or use a link to pay. I used the link, paid the port fees and taxes online ($258) Easy Peasy. 11/22 Harmony of the Seas. I haven't sailed with RCCL since April 2017 and they offered me a balcony and casino cash, who am I to argue?

One of the many slot machines on a RCCL ship....My MIL won over $8k on the Harmony last Nov on this machine. Of course, not everybody wins. 😉

Please dont mind, but I read that the odds of a gambler winning are 47% in regulated, legal land casinos & less than 40% on unregulated casinos out of any country's jurisdiction.

No offence to anyone.

Yeah... she closed the bowl and hit the Major. I think she was down to about $3-$4 at the time.

No offense taken. I don’t know how true either of those numbers are... what I do know is I went on 10 cruises in 2019. I took between $1500-$2000 to gamble with on each one. End of the year spreadsheet shows I am down a total of nearly $5000. 
 

That may not make me a “winner” In some eyes, but I see it as about $500 per cruise including taxes, gratuities, a ton of time gambling... plus all the entertainment and activities. It was a good year in my book.

 

This year so far is not going as well. HAHA.

Got the offer and nowhere near prime.  Booked Symphony in October. Have a friend who is prime and received a free room several months ago.  Her calculations were that the free room cost $100. But you have to remember gamblers are like fishermen.  The loses and fish are a lot bigger then what they actually are!

Thanks for posting this link! I had no idea there was a separate website for Royal's casino offers. Just booked my comp junior suite with $300 free play on Harmony of the Seas for November.
