Default Casinos At Sea

On our New Years cruise on the Gem I sined up for the card. It was a smart thing to do. I did well in the casino and took home $4800 but on top of that NCL has comped me for another cruise, inside cabin or can be used to upgrade etc, so make sure you sign up if you are going to play.

Even if you don't play enough to get a comped room a reasonable amount of play will allow anyone to book with them and get ~17% discount. No card, no rating, no future rewards.

You do know you can upgrade that cabin and just pay the difference. Makes for a bargain priced balcony.

How many nickel slots do I have to play to qualify as reasonable play? Or, for dh, that quarter pushing machine, does that count. Congratulations Eric. You play big, you win big.

Depends on how many nickels per pull. Some of those at max bet can take a pile

You should have yor DH just stop by the casino cashier and give them his money. The only time I saw that quater pusher pay off was on the Pearl TA in 40ft seeas and 150 knot winds. It was raining quaters.

For penny, nickel, etc., do the machines take and dispense coins, or do they take bills & dispense certificates to be cashed in?

Shoreguy,
How much does one have to play to get the 17% discount on the next cruise? Thanks.

I really don't know. I had never tried CAS before last month since I am not a heavy gambler. Never get more then 25 points on my card. Keep in mind I only play the tables. The slots rack up the points. I do play 1-3 hours everyday.

All I can say is if you call they will ask the last ship you were on and pull up your rating. I think now they are cross marketing with Harrahs since Apollo has ownership in both.
