Casino Offer - Drinks on Us EVERYWHERE

Recommended Posts

I received a casino offer that, among other perks, says it includes Free Drinks on Us EVERYWHERE on the ship... Has anyone used this offer before? Can't really find many details on this; is it really giving me Cheers for free or what? Wondering if it only for alcoholic drinks or if I can also use it on energy drinks, specialty coffee, etc. like Cheers. Went ahead and booked the Thanksgiving cruise on the Pride but hoping someone can shed more light on this offer for me! Thanks!

If an Elite cruise, it likely is Cheers.

It is not an elite, it was just a regular casino offer... I could pick from practically any cruise from when they restart through the end of November.

Code was FVO. From what I've been able to tell not a lot got this offer... My wife plays just as much in the casino as I do and she didn't get this offer.. Talked with quite a few friends that cruise a lot as well and only 1 other received this offer.

I have received this offer several times for other than elite cruises, but as a non drinker my bar tab runs about $50 per cruise. 

It is usually offered on cruises that are less desirable to me, so I pass.

If you have the offer available, it MOST LIKELY would show up under available offers within the VIFP tab of carnival. Not sure if you can actually type in the code or if it is just for making reservations over the phone...

Very nice!   I wonder if you could upsell yourself to a suite and invite a few friends. 
 
I have an offer with $500 OBC but I just can’t pull the trigger. 
 

👍. Good for you.

Knowing the code won't help.  If the offer doesn't show when you log into your VIFP account and look at your offers, you don't qualify, with or without the code.

Knowing the code might allow some to look up exactly what the offer is, along with limitations.

Which is still irrelevant if you don't qualify.

Of course it is relevant as it would answer some of the OP's questions.

I wasn't answering OP's question; he/she already had the code and the terms and conditions would be in the mailer or linked to the offer in his/her VIFP offers.

 

I was addressing people who didn't get the offer asking for the code.

If the OP had the answers, why would the questions be asked?

I have reviewed the T&C of the offer I booked and it makes no mention of anything regarding the Drinks on Us, other than you have to be at least 21. 

 

I'm just trying to see if anyone has used this offer before and what their experience was with it. I found it interesting that there was virtually no information in the T&C on the drinks on us portion, but plenty on the free play and OBC. I've already booked and will be happy with however it works, I was just hoping that someone has experience with this offer. 

 

And I kinda figured having the offer code would do nothing if you don't already have the offer, was a bit confused why people were asking for it in the first place.

You can call Carnival and ask for the promotions department and ask.

If I got this it might entice me enough to go ahead and book.

OP, Are you heavy players in the casino? I have gotten a few okay casino offers but nothing like this. Just curious how many "points" one needs to get these types of offers these days.

I received the same offer and was just wondering if "free drinks everywhere" also included my travel partner. I'm sure we have to pay taxes on it.

We really aren't THAT heavy of casino players anymore; I'm a bit overweight but not that much... Kidding!

 

Seriously though, a few years ago we played quite heavily on each cruise, but now we may take $300-$400 each for a 7 day cruise; if we win we keep playing, if we lose it we are done. As for number of points needed, I honestly have no clue. The last cruise we were on (Back in August of last year) I don't think we even played enough to qualify for one of the bounce back offers.

Thank you for the response. Sounds like we play about the same amounts. Anyone had any experience calling the promotions or players club departments and asking for these offers? My guess is 100% no, but doesnt hurt to ask.

That is a good point, I wonder if my wife gets the free drinks everywhere... I know when I've had these offers in the past that included the standard Drinks on Us (casino only), my wife always received a card as well so I just assumed she would get this too but I actually don't know.. 

 

As for taxes, I'm not 100% sure but I'm thinking we did NOT have to... The government taxes/fees on this cruise came out to $135 per person which I think is too low to have included tax on a cheers style package.

Even if it doesn't cover my husband, the $500 casino credit will off set his drink package. We are going to book the Pride to Bermuda in October. Too good of a deal to pass up. We'll be sure to get trip insurance just in case.
