Just returned yesterday from AOS where I WON a Free 7-nt Caribbean cruise!!!!!!!! I was the Bingo winner in the Royal Bingo game!!!!!!!! Still seems surreal but the document is sitting right here beside me as I'm dreaming of my next cruise! This prize beats my others - t-shirts, key chains, etc. Oh happy day! Bingo baby!!!!!!

Thanks! I was just telling someone else here (who sent me a PM about AOS info & San Juan info) that no matter how young she is, play Bingo! My husband used to make fun of me for playing but that stopped MANY cruises ago. One particular cruise, I won 3 games in a row - enough to buy a beautiful diamond heart pendant and a gold bracelet in port. Another cruise, I hit the week's jackpot (on NCL) $4,000! I had to split that with another gal who had Bingo, but trust me, taking home $2,000 at the end of a cruise was fabulous! I never play Bingo here at home, but I told my husband that I think I might check out a local game a time or two. Could provide some extra cruising money.

WOW,,,guess I'm going to have to start buying the BINGO cards again. I've never won anything playing BINGO,,,except,,,,(are you ready for this?),,,,,a new BOWLING BALL! Yep,,,when in the Corps, I was playing BINGO one night at the club, and actually won a brand new bowling ball,,,and they even drilled the holes to fit my hand! Such a deal! I'm curious,,,how many cards do you buy per game?

I won the cheapest "gold" medal on my last cruise for winning a pool tournament on ship. It cost nothing but to me it was like an Olympic gold medal. An experience and memories when I look at it, and this stuff is tack, but tack that can harbour some really good memories.

Like the first time I stole a ships dining room menu as a souveneir, been in plenty since but that was a special reminder, thats all these things are

Yup, great memories come flooding back when I wear the gold bracelet I bought with some Bingo winnings.

The AOS had some (not enough to go around usually) electronic "cards" that play 30 cards per game. The cost was a little more than $60.00 but I can lose that much in a hand or two of 3 card poker or a few minutes at a slot machine .

One medal and some swag from "Karaoke Idol" on Navigator of the Seas, and one ship on a stick from guest talent show on Holiday. I have the videos for my great-neices, so I will be a spectator from now on. Now, I let someone else play the "monkey" and save my "thyme" for sun & fun.
