Received my letter today from the Royal Caribbean/Celebrity Player's Club. For gamblers who play fairly high stakes, and put in two hours a day 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!
My husband is a high stakes gambler and two hours of play a day is nothing to him... As a matter of fact, I try not to watch him gamble too often, because I always think how I could use that money for more "substandial things".... He will be glad to hear of the players club for RCI.
Thanks for the info Kuki.

Have called RCI/Celebrity for info and was informed by a supervisor there is no such thing. Tried to explain someone I know received a letter about the Player's Club. They still deny having such a program. Guess we will wait until on board.
As is often true, they were no help at all.
