Default Cruise ship casino player ratings.. Can cruise be comped?

Hello,
Kinda new to this site been lurking just over a week. Have found info on almost everything.
Just curious to how cruise ships rate their gamblers. I'm a professional online poker pro. Was just curious if I play enough high limit games in the casino will I earn comps as quick as I do in vegas? I already sent in credit and banking info to set up casino account. Anyone have any info as how the cruise ship rates you? Thanks in advance!

You aren't likely to earn it playing Poker. The games onboard aren't that big.

With other table games, you can get rated for their Ocean Player's Club. You'd need to gamble VERY BIG stakes to get a comp cruise, but you can get some perks, including cash back on your next cruise.

It all depends on your time and average bet. The minium bet to warrant any rating varies with the game.

I play the slots, mostly, but do like blackjack also. I asked the Ocean Players Club about BJ adding to my point rating. I was told that you'd show your sea pass card to the pit boss and have to play at least $25 a hand for an hour to have it count.

We just got off a B2B cruise (4 day on the Fascination and then 8 day on the Miracle). I got a $100 casino credit on the 1st one and $125 credit on the 2nd one. Plus fruit and wine basket, photo coupons and a free drink every night in the casino.
