Received my letter from the Royal Caribbean/Celebrity Player's Club. For gamblers who play fairly high stakes, and put in a mininmum of two hours a day playting during the cruise, you can now get rated, and get some very nice perks, as well as earn points (which convert to dollars) to be redeemed on your next cruise.
Interesting, because Carnival had a similar program for a number of years, and now they are cutting back on the benefits, and no more cash back. Now RCI is stepping up with what seems to be an improved version of Carnival's program.
Now I have a credit worth $625 dollars to use on my Millennium cruise in Nov., based on my play on the Serenade of the Seas last month!
When we were on RCCL's Adventure last July, I asked one of the casino table supervisors about the Players Club and he didn't know a thing about it. He asked another supervisor and he didn't know about it either.
That was quite disappointing because my husband is quite the avid blackjack player. As a matter of fact, I can't stand and watch him play for too long because I don't want to see how much he has put on one hand (...minimum $25 up to the maximum $500. And he plays for HOURS every day and night).
It would have been nice to have been able to join a players club, especially because we are already booked for another RCCL cruise in February.
