Okay, let's have some fun here! Tell us what you have won onboard and when. Please exclude any casino winnings. I'm taking about other stuff. The last cruise I was on, the Destiny (last year), I won a bathrobe, cruise DVD, and about $100.00 at bingo. I hope I get lucky again when I cruise in about 2 weeks. Remember- you gotta be in it to win it-lol!
Funny, I hardly ever gamble otherwise- only on the ship (and NOT in the casinos). I'm the type that just buys a raffle ticket here and there to help out a benefit of some sort. If I DO gamble at a casino- I have a limit of like $20.00!
I've won lots of the trivia contests with some pretty nifty prizes ... clocks, umbrellas, 6 pack holders, passport cases, pens, etc. Won 8 prizes on my Coral Princess trip this past April and 5 on the Celebrity Century (5 nighter last New Year's).
Biggest prize - was a free cruise on the Norway a number of years ago.
I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012
We won many bingos, the largest was $700. On the Spirit, we won the Boutique Raffle drawing. It was a Carnival expandible luggage on wheels filled with over $500 of misc items from the many boutiques; beautiful sweatshirts, windbreakers, t-shirts, rum, 2 inch of gold necklaces and matching bracelets, a watch/walet/key chain set, some glass menagarie animals. We also have won a beautiful large piece of art during the auction. Since we were buying and already shipping this was totally free. It now hangs above our bed.

WOW! Three of you have won free cruises- that's AWESOME!
I came SSOOOoooo close to winning that the year before last. Maybe this will be the year I win it? Or I wouldn't mind winning that luggage filled with the goodies-lol. I came across a Carnival Capers from 4 years ago. The good old days when Bingo was only $5.00 and 3 for $10. Now it's $10.00 and 3 for $20.00! Oh well. I guess this is one of the reasons how they can offer the cruises so cheap?
On NCL Star (2005) I called in on a televised trivia show: Hat, keychain, frisbee, free bingo. I ahve also won some decks of NCL playing cards!

Yes, now that I thin about it, we have won some of those genuine gold painted plastic medals. OOOh, plus a really tacky t-shirt from a Carnival casino. The short had all kinds of casino type images, i.e. poker chips, cards, etc. on it. I don't gamble, but threw a quarter in one of those machines that push quarters forward and out fell a token that got me the t-shirt. Took it to dinner (did not wear it to dinner!) and gave it to a table mate who loved to gamble.
I got lucky this time around! I won ot one, but TWO 24 karat gold painted plastic ships on a stick! I got one for a trivia and the other for a scavenger hunt. Man, that scavenger hunt was fun, and exhausting!! I think it made it easy because I had half the items alone in my cabin!!!!

My fiance' and I won (well she won) a diamond tennis bracelet at the shopping seminar on the Majesty. Best part, just before they drew the winner, I leaned over to her and said "it's gonna be me". The next day, I proposed to her and she left that trip covered in diamonds.
