Someone asked me this question over the weekend and I didn't know the answer...so off to my cruise experts I go. Do they do free drinks in the casino if you are playing alot...like in Vegas? I immediately said no to my friend that was asking but thought I would clarify with you guys. hope everyone had a good weekend.

The general answer is NO. However, the house boss has the option of serving comp drinks if someone is playing a lot, or just for good customer relations.

However, the generally, no.

IBCRUZIN is correct. It depends totally on how much you play and how much you're spending. Just like in Vegas. My husband has always gotten drinks on the house in the casino. He plays the slots and black jack. He hasn't been charged once.

Sunshine.....Another neat tip would be to e-mail the Casino Host a week or so before your cruise (go to oceanplayers.com for the email address). Tell them you are looking forward to cruising on the ship and visiting the casino. Give them your booking number as well. You MIGHT get a surprise during the cruise.

I sent email to casino host on Holiday last cruise and they sent a bottle of wine to the table on formal night. I don't know if it was planned ahead with the email or after seeing how much I was down in the casino. Either way, it was a nice gesture!
